We were staying at the motel for a night and thought it would be enjoyable to walk instead of drive to dinner. The parking lot beginning to fill with apparently local customers on a Saturday also looked like a good sign, and it was. It's a prototypical Northwoods bar/grill interior, with a nice selection of 5 or 6 tap beers... More

Sorry to give a local establishment a bad review--it should be 2 1/2 stars--but "hidden food gem" must have been awarded by someone under the influence. In the multiple times I have had lunch or dinner at the Earthwood, there have been multiple order mixups (as in, they forgot my order altogether though we were only 4 in a mostly... More

We were rated as "Hidden Food Gem" by an independent magazine and even we were surprised when they contacted us. They informed us that readers had asked them to visit us. The rating was based upon our "Ragin Cajun" 1/2 lb burger and our wild caught Alaskan cod "fish & chips". We only use 100% Angus beef for our hand... More

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

Great Food stop! Good menu selection, fast service and the $6 burger basket special is hard to beat! Plus, the French Fries are perfect!

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.
