“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

This was our second visit to the Cascade Lodge Restaurant. This is by far the best value breakfast that we have found in the area, as pricing all along the North Shore seem to run high for food. The view is amazing. The food was very good. Our server was very efficient. We will be back.

“Nice casual place where you can count on quality food wit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We stopped for a late lunch on our way to Grand Marais, MN. We've stopped before and always enjoy the food.

Staff are friendly, prices reasonable.

“Try a smile”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for breakfast this morning and felt like we were an interruption rather than welcomed customers. The coffee was hot and fresh and the food was quite good. However, we won't be back to patronize a restaurant that has servers that don't smile, welcome a guest or even check back to see how everything was. We had to go find our server for more coffee, ketchup and even the check. Lousy service and even worse customer focus.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Restaurant, I am sorry your experience was not up to your (or our) standards. Our staff is trained to put customers first and we highly value excellent customer service with a smile. The two servers who were working on the day you said you were in for breakfast have been with us for years and we have stacks of comment cards on both of them applauding their customer service skills. We take our customer's comments very seriously and will speak with both servers. However, I can say with certainty that this is not the norm.

“Fantastic Highway-side Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We were there for breakfast and it was absolutely the best Corn Beef Hash and Eggs that I have had in the Midwest. On the West Coast it’s Sears Fine Foods and on the East Coast it’s the Hyatt in Cambridge and now in the Midwest it’s the Cascade Lodge Restaurant for some the best hand-cut Corn Beef Hash and Eggs. They do have an advantage as they are part Irish Pub in the Restaurant. The other meals served were perfect for a great morning start. More that right priced and right portions. Excellent and attentive service with character and some of the most interesting different accents to all color to the meal.

“Always a return trip when in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Whenever we stay on the North Shore we make it a point to eat here at least once. The Blue Cheese Bacon wrapped Steak is amazing. The staff is great and service excellent, but the table and floors were a little dirty.

Definitely worth the stop - and get the steak!
