Fantastic homemade burgers! Hubs and I stopped for a picture of Pierre the Voyageur and saw the "Best hidden gem food award" and decided to stop for lunch. Awesome! Great service, food was delicious and the scenery on the deck was great!

We thought we'd try a local place while staying at the BnB. Food was so so. Atmosphere was nearly all locals preparing for a card tournament. Had a mixup on our order and the drink I ordered wasn't good. Overall, I'd pass if we were here again.

The Earthwood Inn was 1 of 3 restaurants rated "Hidden Food Gem of the Northshore" by Superior/Duluth Magazine. We are the only restaurant in Two Harbors to receive this rating. We live by this standard every day, inspecting each plate coming back to our kitchen to ascertain why, if any food is not consumed by our customers. We use 100%... More

Thanks so much Lois! We're constantly testing the taste of our food to insure consistency and high quality, using high grade & more costly ingredients such as as Angus Beef and fresh Lake Superior Herring. More

I was referred here by the Hotel I was staying at a short distance away when I asked about a place with good burgers. The building itself is very older looking and nothing fancy, but they hide a awesome burger here.

Thank Samuel A
rericpotts, General Manager at Earthwood Inn Motel, responded to this review

The building is historical to Two Harbors as it is over 50 years ago that it was the Sweden House Restaurant. We try to maintain the charm of that era, yet produce the very best handmade 1/2 lb Angus Beef Hamburgers, cooked the old fashion way. This resulted in we being awarded 1 of 3 "Hidden Food Gems of the... More

As a local I enjoy the Earthwood, food is always exceptional, staff is personable and very friendly. A mix of locals and travelers just works. Stop in for better than good bar menu. If you are looking for friendly folks that will gladly share local knowledge on where to go or what to do on the North Shore this is... More

This little bar might surprise you when stopping in there. We drove through on the way to Lutsen and stopped to eat. The steaks were absolutely phenomenal! High quality meat and cooked to perfection. The wife had a hamburger that she said was delicious. We will definitely make this a regular stop for a long time.

Don't let the rustic look fool you. The food makes this a gem of the North Shore. From perfectly prepared steaks to great burgers and fresh seafood (the herring is a must try) I always go out of my way to eat here when up from the Chicago area.

This is my "Go to" place in Two Harbors! If you're looking for a great dinner (try the Ragin Cajun Burger or the Fish & Chips!!!) in a fun, laid back pub environment, the Earthwood is the ONLY PLACE to go. Great bar, friendly people, feels like home the first time you walk in the door.

Thank Mister C
