Our first time there. The food was great. Had a broad menu that made choosing hard. Service was excellent.

“Award Winning Ribs and More!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Do not miss this small town restaurant that has Big City appeal! The wonderful aroma of the ribs on the outdoor smoker lured us in while we were shopping in the morning, so we made plans to dine here after our North Shore Scenic Cruise out of Silver Bay Marina. We had to wait for the ribs, so we enjoyed an appetizer of fish cakes made with a local recipe, served with a spicy coleslaw and fresh tartar sauce. By far the best fish cakes we have eaten anywhere in our home-state of Minnesota. This made us anticipate the award-winning ribs even more, which were by far worth the wait. When they say award winning, they are not bluffing! Not only was the meat smoked to perfection and tender off the bone, both my husband and I believe the BBQ sauce was the best we have ever tasted. I am considering asking Camp 61 for their recipe. It was that good! Also, this is a cozy place with plenty of seating, a bar and the lodge room on the other side of the facility. The staff, including the owner, were more than polite and provided service with true guest-hospitality. We will definitely stop at Camp 61 for lunch or dinner every time we travel the north shore in the future.

“Nice remodel, ok food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I'm local to the area and wanted to try the restaurant on the north shore. First time I had the steamed mussels, had enough garlic to terrify Dracula, Second trip was for the burger, good not great. Nice chips. Third time was for the fish taco, portion seemed small for the price, and service was really slow and there was only two other tables in dining room. The place is under new ownership and I take my hat off to them for the for the turn around in an old property, just needs a little tweaking.

“Nice atmosphere - good service and quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The wait staff were very attentive. There was a small wait to be seated and they updated us every few minutes to that status of our wait. That was very important and personable! The service continued to be very good once seated. The waitresses were extremely kind and helpful. Everyone in our party greatly enjoyed the food.
