Classic north country lake-front resort. Very good food, although they lost a star because the chef does not know what medium rare means. My flank steak was solidly red in its center - no pink - so I ate around the outer inch or so...More

Excellent service and delicious food. Loved the walleye. Also loved the ambiance and proximity to viewing Lake Superior. Good eats!

Sad that this restaurant used to bee so good, but nothing we've had here has been worth the stop for lunch. The bread or buns are never fresh and the food tastes left over. The last time we stopped (we received a gift certificate) the...More

So the good: The views of Lake Superior and the beach are beautiful. I was impressed at how fast we were seated and at a windows table. Also, on our walks through the lobby, the ladies at the hotel check-in counter greeted us with a...More

Just finished having dinner at this lovely restaurant. It is quant and cozy without any kitzy or nicknacks. Just clean and open with a real Scandinavian feel. Service was nice and professional. I had the whitefish and really enjoyed it.

We stopped in for a late dinner in an off-peak season. We were seated immediately without any hassle. This is a grand old resort, and the old lodge is right down on lake superior. Our server Rob, was really friendly and accommodating. We had a...More

Traveled here for dining. While there is a lot of history and hard survival to this place, it certainly caught up with the times. The great room has some warmth with the wood paneling and construction and it feels somewhat authentic. Quite different from fake...More

The meal was top notch. Great wine selection. Seasonal cocktails. Impeccable staff. White table clothes but no stuffy. Ambiance was the icing on the cake. Speaking of cake, don't forget to try the super yummy desserts. Grab a cocktail from the bar and relax in...More
