New owners make this spot even more fun — always friendly service, quick and delicious food, wide variety of local and other brews on tap, and interesting places to sit inside and out; frequent live music.

I ate here with my husband and my brother for lunch on a Saturday. The menu has typical and well prepared sandwich options (Reuben, Cuban, etc) usually with a unique twist, great local beer selection, and gluten-free bread available for substitute. No, you're not really overlooking Lake Superior, that should be obvious if you see the map, but it's still... More

I have eaten here a couple of times now. Each time has been fabulous! It has a nice cozy atmosphere with a hometown feel. I highly recommend the reuben sandwich, french onion soup, squash soup, and don't forget the chocolate bread pudding and french silk pie...yum! They really have a nice selection of local brews also.

This a very fun, friendly spot with good beer choices. They also serve good bar food. Open Mike night has local talent and is fun. Nice patio for outdoor seating.

Ordered at counter, then ordered beer at bar ( fantastic selection), then sat in really fun and laid back atmosphere, and server brought you food and waters. I generally hate sandwiches and sandwich shops, but this place hit a home run. Fantastic food, service was " go out of their way" good.

Stopped by for lunch with 7 people making up 4 generations of our family. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. I have been here several times in the past year, and while we always enjoy eating here, this time they went above and beyond. Fro example, when we realized we forgot to bring milk with for my two year... More

Had lunch here on the outdoor deck. It was a beautiful day but not a beautiful experience. First off, we sat in the front outdoor seating area so we could see Lake Superior. We soon realized that wasn't the smartest idea as the road is quite close so it made for a noisy time, especially since it was a Friday... More

If you have never been here before here is an important tip: you order your food at the counter by the bar, they issue you a number, you find your seat, and they bring the food to you. We were a bit confused when we got there as it was our first time, but locals quickly filled us in. Second... More
