Reviewed June 22, 2014

We found the Lemon Wolf 3 years ago and now it's a place we must stop on our regular North Shore visits. The food, the staff, the atmosphere - it's all first rate.

“Tiny place, great food”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

We had heard that their locally caught whitefish dinner was reason to visit. Unfortunately, they were out when we visited. The roast turkey meal was delicious and the service was very good. No tap beers, but a decent can/bottle selection. Prices were fair. The place is tiny, but they keep enough space between tables. We'll definitely go back and try again for the whitefish.

Hello! Thanks for visiting us, and we are happy you enjoyed your time with us. We are sorry about running out of the fish, with Lake Superior being so whipped up with the storms recently our local fisherman was having a hard time. We anticipate great availability starting this week!

“One of the best meals we've ever had!!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We stopped in on Mothers' Day afternoon and ended up with a special, romantic dinner of a lifetime!!! Amazing wild rice soup, fresh salads, terrific steak and Swedish meatballs -- and the PIE!!! WOW!!! My husband was crazy about the chocolate nut pie, and I had the best coconut cream pie I've had since the old Lincoln Del in the Twin Cities long ago!!! There are great stained glass pieces hanging in all the windows, and even the water glasses are special -- they look like they're hand blown -- beautiful blue glass. The waitresses are friendly and welcoming and don't hurry you along, even though this is not a large place. We spent a few days on the North Shore and can't wait to go back for another visit -- this place is one of the best you will find anywhere!!!
