Love the big bay windows overlooking Lake Superior as you dine. Small, intimate dining area with a cozy lounge and bar. Delicious food, great choices.

Everything was great while we were there. 4 kids and 4 adults, handled quite well. Our server was excellent, and the food was great as well. Live music (a guy with a guitar) while we were there. Gift shop was cute.
