Celebrated our 34th anniversary in the main dining room overlooking Lake Superior. Had a booth on the "upper tier" so we had a nice view. Our server Bryn did a very nice job of pacing things out and giving us his professional opinion on food choices. We started with the Fig and Fromage flatbread which was excellent. Had their signature... More

I sat at the bar and ordered the walleye and broccoli and cauliflower casserole. I had attempted to swap out the potatoe which came with the walleye for a healthy veggie, but they cannot do this. However, you can get veggies drowned in cheap cheese. Tasty though. The bartender was friendly and the experience average. Not a bad place, but... More

The food isn't bad, but way overpriced for what it is. The bloody marys were great (but expensive!) and a good selection of beer and cocktails. Happy hour specials are good.
