Everything we had here was fresh and delicious. The service was good despite the restaurant being very busy. This is clearly a favorite spot for the locals. If you don't have a reservation the wait is likely to be quite long.

I stopped in for lunch on my way to Grand Portage National Monument. I had the grilled cheese sandwich with caramelized onions and bacon. It was SO good! The place is converted home so it has a cozy, intimate feeling. The services was excellent.

Went for lunch and noticed the heavy traffic going into this place. It doesn't disappoint. The french oniom soup is amazing. I also had the blue cheese burger that was good. I had the maple bacon crème brulee dessert and it was quite tasty.

Stopped for lunch during the fall colors. We both had the turkey burger which was great. The raspberry pepper jam and seasoned patty were an amazing combination. My wife’s salad had great greens. No iceberg stuff here. Definitely would return.

I believe the lamb shank was on the menu when we were there in July, but I think a phone call would be a good idea! Sometimes menus change with the season.
