My wife and I were staying at the Lodge next door. We had many of our meals here out of convenience, but the food was great and the service friendly. It wasn't always super fast, but being on vacation neither of us really cared. The restaurant has half off on appetizers and a dollar off pretty much all drinks from... More

Nice smaller restaurant. The food was very good! Huge portions. We had breakfast there and the pancakes were HUGE and very tasty. The next day we had the Eggs Benedict - very good! At dinner time, on the weekends, they have live music. It was very nice!

We had breakfast at the Cascade Lodge Restaurant before embarking on a long hike along the Cascade River, which is just 1/4 mile north of the restaurant. The menu options were excellent. The Eggs Benedict were fantastic, and my wife's basic eggs/hash browns/toast were also very good. After our hike we came back to the Irish Pub that takes up... More

Charming and very clean! Great, delicious food. Broad menu with many options. Friendly staff. Excellent and prompt service. Perfectly priced. We eat here each year on our annual trek to Canada to go fishing.

The greens seemed to be fresh from the garden and seemed to melt in our mouth. The dressing was homemade and really good.

For a simple breakfast it was almost an entire hour waiting. People all around were being waited on, had eaten and then left. We were a large group of nine. However it was a weekend do not think that they were prepared or had enough wait staff. Plan on a wait. Food average

Quite a unique style of tables. Friendly service and pleasant conversations. Beautiful view of Lake Superior while enjoying my ham, egg and cheese croissant breakfast sandwich with hashbrowns. Great bottemless coffee all for an amazing low price. By far, we feel we found a diamond in the rough. We would definitely return!!

Restaurant is very good. Food is excellent. Prices are moderate. The wait may be a little long at times, but it is well worth it. Also has a small bar area. The only negative is that the beverages are not listed anywhere on the menu.

Honestly, this place reminds me of home cooked food, lovingly prepared. We ordered the Deep Fried Mushrooms and Onion Rings as appetizers and I was impressed at how delicate and light the batter was. These certainly were not your typical fried 'shrooms and rings! My husband really loved the Chipotle Flatbread Pizza as his main dish. My oldest son devoured... More

We were here this past week the food was good, served piping hot and served quick - which was awesome since we were very hungry at the time!
