My Family & I stopped here for lunch recently, & I have to say it was well worth it! We've been here many times before over the years.The food & the staff are just as delightful as ever. When we arrived we were seated immediately. Our waitress Charlotte was very sweet, friendly & attentive. We ordered our food & it... More

My husband and I were visiting north shore for our anniversary weekend when we discovered this place for breakfast. We have a service dog and proceeded to go into restaurant and out onto back patio. Our dog had her vest on and was leashed. The server, who was wonderful took our order. When the server came back, she said the... More

An awesome surprise!! Stunning view, good food and traditional music. The accordion player/singer duo at dinner was fun and took requests. Scandinavian specialities but lots of other options as well. Server was a little reserved at first but warmed right up to us😊

We came for mid morning breakfast. Wild rice and cranberry bread outstanding. Scrambled eggs looked like rubber. Tasted bland. Another ordered poached and received fried over easy. Third ordered pancakes which were rubbery. Ham was good. We sat outside and had a lovely view.

Another beautiful day on the shore! Stopping for brunch a Sunday here is a must. After hiking, camping or staying at the resort, this is a lovely venue. Try thr stuffed mushrooms!

Nice place right on Lake Superior, with great views of the lake, from both indoor and outdoor garden seating.

Beautiful location great views if you sit outside. The very first thing we saw when we walked in was a server with her fingers in someone's tap beer glass. (Yuck) We ordered bottled beer for this reason which was great. Food was good and our server was friendly. There was also a large floaty in my water so I would... More

Our family stopped here for lunch on our way back from hiking the North shore. Great location, nice view from back deck, but the food was no better than average. Do not order the mesquite turkey sandwich. Very plain on white bread, limited deli turkey, a slice of tomato, and lettuce. They seriously should remove this item from their menu.... More

Steak sandwich, fries and the margaritas were great. View was nice and watching the seagulls eating the leftovers was funny

First things first - the incredible view they brag about right at the entrance it's really not that awesome. In fact, nothing to brag about at all you have a partial view of the lake with a lot of view into the backyards of neighbors. So if you are stopping by just because of it, don't. They were experiencing some... More
