I had the opportunity to dine here for five days. Some were just breakfast, and some included dinners as well. The service is great, very nice restaurant, the food was great, the people are very nice - all in all, very enjoyable experience.

Stopped to check out pub. Had Smithwicks and apps. Apps were very good. Happy hour 4 to 6 . Bartender was personable. Maybe try dinner next time.

We went as a family on a Friday night around 6pm. Cute bar and restaurant with live music playing. The food was basic bar-type food with a few Irish twists. It was pretty overpriced for the type of food we got.

We still really like the Cascade Lodge Restaurant, but on our latest visit we noticed new menus with new, higher, prices. I understand the need to survive in a competitive tourist environment, but raising prices too high might result in us not coming back.

Stopped in at 1pm on a very cold -10 degree Minnesota day, had steak and eggs, they arrived very quickly and were very tasty. Excellent experience- Sam was my server and was nice. The Wifi was VERY fast, 35 meg, and wide open, solid connection.

Great service but the food missed the mark. We had the Mcdaddy which is basically a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg. The patty was thick and square shaped, the egg way over-cooked--nothing special and would not be ordered again. We had the walleye which...More

The menu prices reflect the new reality of increased minimum wage, food cost and the cost to maintain a clean, hospitable environment. The prices had not been updated in the restaurant for more than five years. We are also very competitive with every other restaurant...More

Food was good, the soups were great. Nice appetizers. The view of Lake Superior is what gives the place atmosphere.

Our 2nd home is in Lutsen and we dine out often. This was our fourth visit under new owners. Irish stew was delicious...and rolls were amazing. Potato Leek soup was perfectly prepared. Service was attentive. Bravo!
