“Atmosphere is Outstanding”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This bar food establishment was recommended by a local. Review was based on other bar food type places.
Food: Our order – a walleye sandwich and Portobello mushroom sandwich. The sandwiches were hot. The fries were crispy. The tartar sauce had dill which was tasty and unique. The Portobello sandwich was served with honey mustard.
Atmosphere: The bar/casual restaurant was full of interesting tree carvings. There were high glossed wood grain tabletops. It was a fish lovers haven with mounted fish and bobber lights strung on the ceiling. There were glass pane windows in three directions with gorgeous views of Rainy Lake. The place has a lot of character. There were people eating and drinking around the bar. Lots of conversation. The US Open was playing on the TV above the bar. When the weather is nice there’s a large deck on one side of the lake making for a beautiful setting while dining. There was a pool table. Alcoholic drinks were served in canning jars. Why not drive your boat up from the lake and come in for a bite. There were flowers everywhere outside. We looked around the area. The resort is at the very end of the road and on a point surrounded by water on three sides. Pretty area.
Bonus: Free WiFi access!

“Not impressed.”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We are a family that frequents Rainy Lake often in the summertime. This last visit was ridiculous, we did not even eat there this time. We get there and the docks are full, but we find a spot for our boat, walk up and there is NO place to sit outside because they have closed three decks, we can't go inside because we have our dogs with. This is a beautiful Friday night on a Holiday weekend and they close 3 decks?? This is just bad management in my opinion. This is not the first time we have had a bad experience there, if you finally do get a place to sit and want to wait a LONG time, the food is usually good.

“Well Kept, Well Served and Well Done.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Brought a couple of out of town visitors to take in this unique resort, the views from the decks along with a little dinning thrown in. We make a point to eat here once every summer and weren't disappointed. The view was great and the "teas" were every bit what I remembered. The service was prompt and courteous. We love the simply menu and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Our friends mentioned how well kept the whole place was from decks to dinning room. It's always nice to be able to show off Rainy Lake to visitors from Sha Sha.

P.S. Our friends were so impressed by the place they brought their son the next night after getting him settled in at the junior college.

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in cabin #2 which was very small and smelled of gas. Someone came in to check and said everything appeared fine but the odor was strong throughout our stay. The kitchen sink had no water pressure and the bathroom was smaller than a closet with a toilet wedged between a wall and shower (one could wash their hands in sink while sitting on toilet). Camping would have been better!
