We had just arrived into town to check-in to a local Lodge. It was late night before Thanksgiving. Needed dinner and was told to try this restaurant. Thankful they were open, but for 3 people who ate sandwiches our bill was $41 plus tip. The Reuben was good but more kraut than meat and our open faced sandwiches were just... More

Came here on a Sunday afternoon to eat after driving past and liking the appearance and am sure glad I turned around!!! I walked in and heard the pleasant sound of a two person band called Sugar Moon, of which they stayed after their final song and found a song I might like to sing with them. I tried, but... More

We went here for lunch on a Friday afternoon during MEA break. The place was packed, though we were able to find a spot without much of a wait. Our server was a little curt, but polite. They seemed to be a little overwhelmed by the amount of customers. We had to wait for quite a bit for our food,... More

We had dinner out on the garden/patio on the bluffs overlooking Lake Superior. Menu includes Northwoods/MN and Scandinavian flavors. Our meals were tasty and relatively inexpensive. A sharp eye on the flower pots & planted areas will reveal little gnome statuettes, part of the friendly/quirky feel of the place.

The Scandinavian food is delicious. The homemade Swedish meatballs are wonderful. The view of Lake Superior while enjoying dinner is a bonus.

This restaurant is always an expected stop on our Northern trip! We all decided to eat light,(4 of us) and ordered the Burgers. They come with a heap of fries, tomato slice, lettuce & onion. I requested gravy for my fries and was graciously accommodated. All served with an artisan bun! The PRICE is as good as it gets! This... More

The Northern Lights puts on a great Sunday buffet. We were fortunate to be there on a warm, sunny day and had a beautiful view of Lake Superior from our table in the screened-in area of the restaurant. There is also a lovely patio and gazebo where you can have your meal. Everything I tried was very good, but the... More

Wonderful eclectic menu. If one can't find something delightful to eat here, well, go for McDonald's. Not my first visit here, have always enjoyed the food, staff, and experience at this restaurant.

Northern Lights seems like a place that does fine with some of the comfort food items. My burger was fine. I wouldn't rate it as a fine dining establishment. I thought the building itself was kind of dumpy, but my burger and fries were fine. It's that kind of place. I don't know why they would call themselves a roadhouse... More

We stopped at the Northern Lights Roadhouse and Pub (about 3 miles north of the Split Rock light house). WOW what a great meal plus an outstanding view over Lake Superior. The food was totally unique and the interior of the restaurant is a treat to see.
