We had dinner at Lemon Wolf Cafe in Beaver Bay on May 18, and it was outstanding (as it always is)! We both ordered the Walleye with salad and it was served with a nice slice of their homemade bread. The walleye was seasoned and pan grilled to perfection. The salad was topped with fresh blackberries, strawberries, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers... More

I ordered the house salad, so yummy! The fresh fruits and veggies are what, and my salmon was cooked to perfection. I, too,... More

Wonderful meal! I enjoyed the first fresh lake trout of the season and my husband had his favorite, the scallops. Both were perfectly prepared and seasoned. Great fresh salad, wild rice soup, and homemade bread. I was sorry to be too full for dessert! The restaurant is homey and comfortable, the service friendly and attentive. Thanks for another great meal,... More

Been here two times and both times were excellent. Don't let the small space and cabiny decor fool you, the food is delicious and creative while staying true to the spirit of the North Woods surroundings.

We aren't normally pie eaters but we never leave this restaurant without having dessert- the Wolf Trail and Coconut pies are unrivaled. Bonus points for... More
