Had this review been 2015 it would have been rated a 5. However, during the 2016 summer season, we received slow to poor service more than once. We had a couple of experiences when staff walked by us several times without noticing that no one had even said, "I'll be right with you." We eat out often and it took... More

Just left Wacootah and we are so confused. We had a group of 10, 6 adults and 4 kids. We ordered mostly specials (fried walleye, baked potato and cole slaw) with one steak entree and one sandwich as the outliers and for some reason we were there for 2 1/2 hours. Our server was nice but how can fried fish... More

We had a good lunch after our round. He had the Moab sandwich with pasta salad, I had the walleye sandwich with waffle fries. Good, not amazing, but after a round of golf, it hit the spot. Service was great. Enjoyed eating outside looking out at the Mine Lake

We had a very good dining experience with friends at the Wacootah Grille. The prime rib special on Saturday night is hard to beat. Others ordered the cobb salad and the walleye sandwich which were also delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. No complaints.

I have had some less than satisfying experiences in this part of Minnesota so this was a pleasant surprise. Nice facility with a great view over the water. Our server was prompt and friendly. Food was good and well priced.

The Wacootah grill is where we elected to take my in-law's, as my sister-in-law had taken them to the Giants Ridge Lodge the weekend earlier and said the food was horrible. However, you better plan on eating early, because they CLOSE AT 8:00 on Sunday Night. They told me this three times when I called to make a reservation and... More

We were on the Iron Range for an extended visit. We ate at the Wacootah Grill several times both with family and as a couple. The restaurant is at the Giant's Ridge Quarry Golf Course clubhouse. It overlooks a mine lake, a lovely setting for lunch on the deck. My quest for walleye meals while in Minnesota netted me four... More

Had a nice Sunday night dinner through the "Nine and Dine" promotion which is an excellent deal. Our meals were very good and the view of the lake from the patio was beautiful!

Waitstaff was extremely friendly. Menu had a good variety. We had steak and shrimp. The steak was cooked perfectly but was fatty and just tasted Okay. Shrimp was wrapped in prosciutto. It tasted fine. Atmosphere was just OK, couldn't tell you that it was a fine dining experience or just a casual just a stop to have a bite to... More
