I've been coming here since I was quite young with family. I got my daughters & their friends to agree to try it by telling them there was blueberry pie on the menu. That sold them! The spinach artichoke dip was also very good!

Food was good. Highly recommend the Swedish Meatballs with lingonberry sauce they are delicious. Service was great and the views of Lake Superior are fantastic. After dinner you can walk on the beach they light a fire every night at sunset.

The Lutsen Dining room has a casual elegance with a Scandavion vibe. The menu is varied featuring local fish. Our family loves the Swedish meatballs and the walleye dinner. The Northshore salad is not to be missed.

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
