The service was superb, and the appetizers were scrumptious, but they no longer offer that delicious coleslaw that used to be a staple. Plus, the Summit sandwich was somewhere down in the valley; it was not good at all.

PapaCharlie's has another beautiful view on the North Shore! But....they are really missing the boat with their food! Quite not what you would expect for a restaurant/bar that can draw crowds for any season! The bar does have a fabulous bartender named Gary. He provides...More

Great food, views and service! Gary is our favorite, we ask for him every year, very funny, kind and hard working! Loved the potato shredders and the pulled pork sandwich. Couldn't think of a better place for a cold beer over looking the mountains!

The food was really not very good here, also the service was not great ether. No one came to wait on us sitting outside so I had to go into the bar to order our food.

we were staying at the resort so had dinner here one evening. We split a salad and a large ribeye steak. Both were very large and worked well for us to share.

I won't say this is a hot spot or a locals hang out but if your in Lutsen it seems to be the only spot. Good service and decent ambience, meaning Northwoods. Good selection of local beers. Good decent but over priced.
