First visit since new owners. Word is they are experienced in the business moving from Alaska. Our expectations were unfairly too high. Service was slow BUT it is a vacation area. Obviously short of servers but they were doing their best. We were not terribly...More

The food is good and tasty. We were disappointed each time we went in except once with the service. The wait for food was extremely long and we ended up leaving at dinner one night and driving to Grand Marais to eat instead. There were...More

Eggs Benedict was to die for. Nice portions. Prices reasonable. Better than Grand Marais. A must stop for meal or happy hour half price appetizers.

Thank you for the review. I think you might have selected the wrong number of buttons. Your comments are very positive but the "one button" review is confusing. Anyway, thanks for eating here. Thom McAleer

I really don't like leaving poor reviews. Unfortunately, I have to this time. We stopped for breakfast yesterday (Thursday Aug 10) around 9:40am. We were a party of 5. The seating staff was not very friendly, but got us seated quickly. It then took 30...More

We spent 3 nights at the Lodge and purchased the "wine and dine" package: 3 breakfasts and 1 dinner w/wine included in our room cost--and we could choose from the menu. Excellent value!
