Besides indoor dining area, the restaurant offers a very nice outdoor, garden seating area. Great place to have a leisurely meal on a nice day. I had the Swedish meatballs with Yukon Gold potatoes, and lefse with lingonberry sauce. Excellent! Friendly staff.

Northern Lights Roadhouse is located right on the shore of Lake Superior. They have large picture windows and screen windows overlooking the lake and an outside deck for when the weather is nice, to sit outside. We found the food to be outstanding and the...More

Nice place to stop on the way north. Had soup and salad bar. Pretty basic. Desserts looked to be pretty good, although I did not partake.

We opted to sit outside to take in the views of Lake Superior. The first 20 minutes weren't so great as the other table was full of smokers which I didn't care for the "fresh air". I had a bowl of the wild rice soup,...More

Stopped here for lunch and was able to get a table outside. Nice view to enjoy while having a bite to eat. The food was delicious! Our server was great. She was the only one waiting on customers outside but she handled herself very well.
