Our first time to dine here for dinner. A diverse menu with a Scandinavian flare. The view was great along with the atmosphere. Good service and a great place for family dining. Everything we had was great except desserts. It was obvious they were not prepared on site.

The food is just mediocre but filling. I had the blueberry pie which was homemade and nothing special. The ambiance is the reason to go and dine at the lodge. I have been going there for 45 years and wouldn't miss it next visit but the food is not the reason to go.

We ate here for breakfast and dinner, and it was by far the best dining experience we had on our trip. The Norwegian eggs Benedict was absolutely amazing, and well as the Walleye for dinner. The waitstaff was attentive and efficient, overall we were very impressed! I would recommend a reservation for dinner.

We came for the wings on special. These were some of the best wings we have ever had. Kids even devoured them. Great happy hour. Loved the live music too. Server was a rockstar. Made us feel just as important as someone ordering a big dinner. Menu and food looked great. Take a walk along the north shore after dinner... More

My husband were only planning on dining there once during our stay but we loved the ambiance and the food so much that we had to return a second time. The Walleye dinner was amazing and the wild rice soup and North Shore salad was really good too. We enjoyed a romantic stroll after dinner and fell in love again.

We loved this restaurant. It's a beautiful place that you immediately charms because it's been there for a long time. The woodwork inside is really cool. We were there on a busy ski weekend and there was no problem getting a table. The service was outstanding and the atmosphere is upscale yet relaxed. The food was very, very good. Our... More

I am going to start out by stating I have never written a review good or bad on any websites. We have been planning a North Shore vacation for 2 months and looking forward to getting out of town, looked at a few places to have a nice dinner at and picked this place. The wait staff is awful. We... More

I have been coming here for the last fifty years with family for special meals. The quality is invariably excellent. Every meal we have had has been amazing. It is pricy, but in our opinion they do a reasonable job of providing value, even at the relatively high price. It is why four generations of my family have come here... More

A beautiful rustic Swedish dining venue. Good menu and wine list. The Swedish cream is the best in the world. Try it for desert. Fish is good but don't order Swedish meatballs.

Stayed at a Lutsen cabin (we've stayed at them before). It was ok but the pull out sofa had no bedding and was horrible to sleep on (we had 5 adults). We did find that the prices have become very high for what you get. The $379 a night becomes $444+ with the addition of various taxes and fees. We... More
