We went to the bar to see Dessa perform as part of their songwriter series. Had eaten at home but it looked like typical bar food, nothing special. The live music and caliber of the music was wonderful! No waitstaff in the bar area.

While staying in the area, we decided to eat at Papa charlies since it was near by. Seemed they were putting families with children on the outside deck to eat while there were indoor tables available. They didn't have much of a choice when it came to children food selections and were actually "out" of a few items on the menu. Expensive for nothing special.

Terrible service and not the cause of some of the workers. Poor management! Food was not good for any of the four in our family. $85.00 for sandwiches or burgers and one drink per person. And it was inedible. Free music on the deck but few seats and musician guests/family took up several of the seats. Poor service! Could be a gold mine if they had good food and service because the views and atmosphere are beautiful. Eat down at the Lutsen Lodge down the hill across the highway on the water.

Ate here because it was close to our resort. Food was mediocre but there also are not a lot of food options in the area. We sat on the patio which was wonderful, live music and a great view. I'd come back for drinks on the patio, but I'd probably eat elsewhere unless I was going for convenience.

Food and drinks were great. Staff were very friendly and gave suggestions for hiking trails and other local activities. We stopped in on the Monday night songwriter showcase and were a little disappointed that as it was a great venue for live music, the music that was played was more suited for a coffee house. We weren't allowed to talk or eat while the music was being played. Overall I always enjoy trips to Papa Charlies and will be back in the winter for a hot cocoa.
