Food was just as advertised - tender, seasoned, home-made food! Great pie and coffee as dessert. We will be back when coming thru area!

This quiet restaurant is a perfect location when you're staying in Beaver Bay! The menu was surprisingly large for such a little restaurant. The pork loin special & walleye sandwich were both great as was the wild rice soup! Very quick & friendly service along with fun decor. Will definitely be back!

It always amazes us that the tiny town of Beaver Bay (pop. around 600, if I recall correctly) has one of the best restaurants on the North Shore. But that is the case; the Lemon Wolf is first rate, always. If you want Lake Superior fish (herring, whitefish, lake trout), this is the place to go; it is outstanding, and worth the trip. The rest of the menu is limited but we've always enjoyed whatever we have (the pecan chicken stands out in my mind, but they have some good pasta dishes too, and the Swedish meatballs are good also). One tip: even if you think you don't care that much for baked potatoes, you MUST try theirs; they are prepared with some sort of brining and then super high heat roasting (I asked the owner/chef about it once) and they are unbelievable. Crisp skin/crust, and a fluffy, delectable interior. The ONLY downside to this charming restaurant are the limited hours; they close early even on weekends, especially in the off season, and are not open on Monday and Tuesday if I recall correctly. Call ahead and ask so you're not disappointed.

Great food selection. I've been here many times and have loved everything I've tried. Yummy homemade soups and bread as well. I can't say enough good things. Everything on the menu is delicious! It's a small, quiet restaurant. Great for date night!
