The Lakely has the best grilled cheese sandwich in the universe. The waitstaff is super friendly and has a great sense of humor. Go here for lunch!

The food here was amazing. I ate there 2x's had the cheese/meat board along with the steak meal and chicken. Both were delicious. I also had a signature drink as well.

Interesting menu. Farm to table, locally sourced items. Ate there twice and both times did not leave disappointed. Interesting drinks, nice wines. Jazz music with local artists add to the relaxing dinner atmosphere. Great outdoor seating options too.

We were staying at the Oxbow, so... We had the grilled cheese and the whitefish salad which were fine; fairly modest portions by mid-west standards. Servers were all very pleasant.
