Eclectic décor. Good food. Really nice view especially from the outdoor seating area weather permitting. A regular stop for us after having been to Splitrock Lighthouse. Unfortunately there was a fire on site this summer and has yet to reopen as of October 8, 2018

Unfortunately Northern Light Roadhouse & Pub had a kitchen fire earlier this year. I hope to see them open for next years season. Nice waitstaff and good appetizers. Local beers available.

So much to look at inside. Great conversation starters and they even have trivial pursuit cards on the table to keep your mind sharp! We had the special all you can eat walleye which was sooo good. Their breading was light and flavorful but didn't...More

We just stopped in for a quick dinner, and ended up really enjoying the decor, the view of the lake, and the authentic local food. The food was top notch, very tasty and priced right.
