This was the first place we ate on our Lutsen adventure, and it was a good introduction to the area. The scenery was inspiring, and the restaurant ambience rustic and fun. The food was very good, though the selection was somewhat limited.

“Nice dinner”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Our family dined at Papa Charlie's during our stay at Eagle Ridge. It is very convenient to walk over from the room. The view from the restaurant is great. There is a nice deck and you can hear the falls from the Poplar River if the bugs do not bother. We did like our meals but the price was a bit high for burgers and fries. I did enjoy the sweet potato fries. The menu does not have a lot of choices but is varied. Our server was the brightest part of the night. He was very attentive and super friendly.

“Enjoyable dinner, decks & food!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We enjoyed the MN theme selections, such as a wild rice burger, and others. The food was good, & service was very pleasant. After dinner we also enjoyed playing some ping pong & the arcade.

“Awesome Views”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Great late night dinner. Bugs were too hungry to sit outside on this particular night, but inside was nice too. We had a brand new server named David who was very attentive and concerned that our meal was perfect. The ribs were delicious.
