If you are a foodie, like new and interesting food combinations, and are adventurous, this place is for you! If you are like me and like more traditional fare, you may struggle to find something to order. It's also very expensive! Salads are not included with entrees.

This place has killer food. It is well worth the drive and the waiting in line (if you have to). Especially great in the summer when their flowers are in bloom out front. Otherwise, a great day trip for some great food.

After a visit along Lake Superior shore (Two harbors & Duluth) we found this nice place off highway 61. Very good gourmet food style with a short selection of good wines

My husband and I love to go to the Scenic for special occasions. It is a bit pricey (thus only special occasions) but it is DELICIOUS. Favorite items include the french onion soup (usually on the menu) but we also have liked many seasonal dishes like the figs with blue cheese and walnuts from this fall. A fantastic place to stop for a nice lunch on your way up the shore, or to drive up for a special dinner. Great views of Lake Superior as well!

This restaurant is on Scenic 61 (not to be confused with the 4 lane highway running between Duluth and Two Harbors) which is a beautiful drive in itself, and this restaurant makes a perfect stop along the way. It's in a beautiful spot just on the lake, they have a lovely garden outside in the summer, with a few patio tables. While, the scenery is worth it alone, the food is stellar and inventive here! The Ahi Tuna tacos (a regular special item) are phenomenal, the burgers are killer, I've had the egg and asparagus sandwich twice and it's so delicious! They have a nice wine list and the staff is lovely. We recently had the above mentioned tacos and egg sandwich, a lovely arugula salad with fennel, candied pepitas, and pinenuts, and the artichoke slather. All were top notch. My only let down was the grasshopper mouse for dessert. It was definitely good, by any measure, but it just didn't seem to have the finesse of everything else. Still a wonderful meal and I will go out of my way to eat here any time I am on the North Shore.
