The staff is great, the food is not your run of the mill restaurant fare. Something different from what you will find in Canal Park or the Miller Hill area. Overlooking the lake is a great bonus! Dining room is very cozy. Great atmosphere.

The food, view and service were spot on! The pastas are fresh and inventive, but we are always too full to try dessert.

We enjoyed a nice family dinner. Food was great and service was excellent! When we come back to Duluth, I'd definitely stop in again! They were kid friendly as well!

After spending time in the sun by the water way too long, we were in a need for a shade. The restaurant had three options for seating - front room (busier and noisier), main room with large class windows to the lake, and an open...More
