Stopped in with two business companions. The smell of the fall leaves while walking to the lodge, followed by that of the fire in the fireplace in the lodge lobby whetted my appetite as we entered the casually elegant dining room. Our server, Nina, was charming and personable, and handled our good-natured ribbing with aplomb when it turned out that I was ordering from an "old menu" that I had been given, and again when she had to inform me that the last of the Lake Superior Walleye had gone to my companion. While my Caesar salad's greens were slightly oversized, the Applejack Chicken that Nina suggested as a substitute for the fish was marvelously moist and tasty with a delicious mild whiskey and apples sauce. The fresh beets that accompanied the entree were firm and finely spiced, and the fingerling potatoes were buttery and melted in the mouth. I indulged in the cherry cobbler a la mode for dessert - while as a cobbler it was somewhat dry, the cherries were tart and flavorful. All in all a great experience. I'd love to return some day!
