What a delightful surprise!

The service was perfect; the food delicious; the lake setting was beautiful. We had the barbecue ribs and the walleye dinners. The dinner included a few appetizers, bread, salad, main course, and a tasty lemon cake dessert. This was our best dinner on the Gunflint Trail!

The setting for Loon Lake Lodge is ideal...quiet and peaceful. Tom and Terri are wonderful hosts. You can sit by the lake, go in a canoe, use a pontoon...a place to get away! Our cell phones did not work making it even more perfect.

Call ahead and let them know you're coming. Ask what is on the menu for the evening. Choices are very limited but usually very good. Best 'ribs dinner' on the Gunflint Trail. Owners are delight and will make your visit friendly and enjoyable.

Our daughter suggested this location and called in our dinner reservations and meal selections. We weren't sure what to expect and we were truly wowed! The place is picture perfect from the view out the front windows from our table to the delicious salmon and ribs we enjoyed! It was a classic old style dining experience from the plate of... More

My husband and I wanted to get away for a weekend in northern Minnesota by the BWCA. We had read good reviews on Loon Lake Lodge, so we decided to book a weekend in late August. The lodge is about 40 miles north of Grand Marais, so well off the beaten path, but really worth it! Tom and Terri are... More

We had a delicious meal at Loon Lake Lodge. We were staying a at lodge that has the reputation for having the finest dinging on the Gunflint Trail but our meal here was better than our meals at the other lodge. The fish was fabulous as were the ribs. I have a gluten sensitivity and they accommodated me fabulously. We... More

It's like eating out but in your own home. Terry and Tom are always there to make sure it goes well. Never rush the meal, it's time to get to know each other and talk about the day.

If you're looking for your run of the mill restaurant then this isn't the place. Loon Lake Lodge is tucked into the hillside next to Loon Lake and is truly a dining experience. The log lodge is the perfect setting for a family meal or quiet couples getaway. The owners are welcoming and charming and food excellent. Reservations are needed... More
