“Convenient casual dining”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Greek salads and pita sandwiches are tasty and a great bargain. We really like the frozen custard--vanilla and chocolate only, but tons of add-ons and toppings. We didn't have the pizza, but heard many positive comments. Window service and outside dining only, but waits are short and meals can be taken down by the lake or back to your room. Good prices.

“Great location”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

People were lined up almost every time I went by. I finally got there for a delicious gyro and took it upstairs and enjoyed the beautiful view of the bay with their outdoor dining. I'm just sorry I couldn't get back for their frozen custard or brick oven pizza. It looked fantastic. Next Time.

“Phenomenal view, great food!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

You really can't go wrong relaxing with a wood-fired pizza and some frozen custard. Add on a spectacular view of Lake Superior while you're enjoying the food and you've got a local treasure! The only thing that would make this better is a nice glass of wine!

“Frozen Custard and wood fired pizza”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Nice self serve stand with outside seating on roof or on patio, both overlooking Lake Superior. Soft serve frozen custard in cones, sundaes, etc. A variety of wood fired pizza choices, along with salads.

“beats that other ice cream place...”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Gave my kids a choice, and it was no contest. Creamy, excellent concoctions, generous servings. It takes them a few minutes to make your order, but the wait is worth it!
