Good food and value

Have only eaten breakfast here before leaving town. Good food and usually good service which can be spotty. Basic good breakfast selection, well prepared and delivered hot. Portions are ample and very reasonably priced.

When we are in Eagle River we always manage to visit Leif's for its good comfort food. You know you are in a good restaurant when it is filled with locals. They are known for their homemade chicken and dumplings which we always order. They have a variety of other sandwiches an entrees. I would say it has a typical... More

Any time we travel to Eagle River, Leif's is a must visit for breakfast. The food is consistently great as well as the service. They do get very busy, try to get there early. The only slightly negative item, is that they need to upgrade the coffee.

Great breakfast! We have eaten here many times and was pleased with the breakfast each time. Service is friendly. Nothing too fancy, but great service and very good food make it a place we will visit again.

Stop in with family on a trip to Eagle River. Sat down right away. Menu has a lot of choices from breakfast to dinner. Sandwiches were huge & tasty! I had a western scramble. It was a large portion and cooked perfectly. Server was very friendly. Will definitely stop back next time we visit the north! Prices were reasonable for... More

We have been there several times for lunch and breakfast. Always a wait but the food and service is usually very good. This time we had a moderate wait (20 minutes) for lunch but we were also told the "kitchen was backed up," a common ER problem. Yes, the food came out quite a while after we ordered - probably...
