Ok I guess. Nothing to really remember. Food did take a while to come out of the kitchen. But again, no bad and not good, just ok

Greatest burger around, polite staff, full bar, off the beaten path location but well worth the trek...A plus plus plus for breakfast, lunch or din... but don't order a bloody Mary unless you like pickles and pickle juice lol

We ate Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner here over the course of our stay at the adjacent Lodge- and enjoyed it! Good breakfast, great sandwiches for lunch, and a daily special every evening. They post their menu and their daily specials online, which is very helpful.

We walked to the Cascade Lodge Restaurant as we were staying at the lodge next door. This restaurant is a cozy one with friendly staff. There are quite a few items on the menu sound quite creative. We've tried Moroccan Chicken and it was perfectly seasoned with risottos. My "made to order" Fettuccine Alfredo is out of this world. It... More

Good food and a good value. Stayed at the lodge in cabin one and received 10% discount on restaurant with room key. Friendly staff and good sized portions. Rustic and clean. Delicious food.

Lakeside dining couldn't be more appropriate at this place. It has a cabin feel with lake views and a great cup of coffee perfect for any time of day. The staff is friendly, the food is good, the service is quick and whether you are staying at the hotel or not (fyi hotel guests get a discount), you will be... More

Didn't want a whole meal, got cheese curds and wings - both were old tasting and chewy. Breakfast next morning was great, though! Understaffed and showed it.

We are sorry you did not like the cheese curds and wings. Our jumbo wings and cheese curds are defintely not "old" as we have them fresh every day. Nonetheless, we are sorry you did not enjoy them. Glad to hear you enjoyed breakfast the next day and gave us a chance! More

As a local, I can firmly say that this place is crap. If you can not make a hollandaise (which is one of the 4 mother sauces), then you should just shut down. The menu is not original and you will find nothing special here, unless you want your corned beef boiled in water.

cascadelodge, Owner at Cascade Lodge Restaurant, responded to this review

It is unfortunate that you felt such a negative response to our Restaurant. From reading your other reviews it appears you might be a "chef" although a review written as yours is doesn't give much credence to that title. Our hollandaise is raved about on a daily basis. Our menu is awesome and allows all of our guests to find... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch yesterday. We each had a daily special. My soup was one of the best I've ever had - turkey dumpling - home made and wonderful! My husband tried the Irish fish and chips (Irish, like the pub) and LOVED IT. The server Jeff was great - gave us info on a seafood place... More

If you are going around the Lake Superior tour make sure you stop and eat any meal here. Friendly and veggie friendly. Ample servings you can split with a variety of choices of food and drinks. Local brews too.
