We've been customers of Lutsen for over 40 years. How disappointing to stop for lunch and be served the worst meal we've had anywhere. My husband had the prime rib sandwich which tasted 'off.' It was. He was sick the next day. My hamburger was raw in the middle. Aside from that, :p ! Nothing about it was tasty. I've... More

It is a very relaxing setting when you overlook the water while dinning. It is has a great north woods feel yet refined enough for a nice dinner. Prices of dishes are a bit on the high end, but the food is overall good. The walleye is a great value!

This is a beautiful dining room and, if they will seat you near a window, you can have an excellent view of the big lake. Being 'back home' in the Arrowhead, I went with my comfort food from childhood. The chicken & wildlife soup (with ham) was quite bland and there was not much ham in it. I've eaten walleye... More

Our bartender (Rob) was great. The food was okay but everything was a bit overpriced. This is a very dark, old lounge feel, kind of place.

12/7/15 We are local Lutsen residents. Usually, when we have a night out, we go to the Poplar River Pub at the resort. The food and service are always excellent! On our 41st wedding anniversary we made reservations in the dining room. We ordered the rack of lamb. It was absolutely horrible! It had layers of fat and maybe a... More

We stayed 3 nights at Lutsen Lodge on the lake Superior. The very best part was our dinner the 2 night in the Lutsen Lodge Dinning Room. We expected average, and got spectacular, thanks! My husband had the flank steak, and fun root veggies and steak fries. I had the roasted chicken, with a toasted stuffing and roasted veggies. We... More

Every time we spend our time at Lutsen it is very relaxing. We alway eat at the Resort Restaurant. The employees are always so friendly. We have always had the breakfast buffet and it has always been very good. I would recommend it.

The food was good, not quite as good as I'd expect for $30 each though. The brown bread was homemade and pretty good. I'll definitely eat at the pub next time.

This place has an old school resort feel. The main restaurant has great views of the lake however the pub does not. Didn't spoil our dinner though. They have plenty of TV's for watching sports while you eat. Nice menu. The food was very good. I had a blue cheese bacon burger. Patty was hand formed. My husband had the... More

The dining room is historic with a beautiful view of Lake Superior. We each had unique and delicious sandwiches. A shared Swedish Creme rounded off the meal. Service was cordial and attentive. Over the years we have had many excellent dining expenses.
