I was so impressed. You walk in and are immediately struck by the cozy ambiance. The bar tables sit upon tree trunks fashioned as if a beaver chewed them. Massive logs intended for the Duluth Pier (purchased for $1 and brought by railway) line the...More

We had a superb special dinner here for Valentines Day! Walleye stuffed with shrimp and crab. Appetizer was a huge shared platter. It included sushi, sashimi, oysters, and chicken wontons. Great wine and beer selection too. A new favorite!

Used to be our favorite, but new ownership offers extremely poor service-almost like they're doing you a favor seating you. We found the food to now be mediocre-so disappointing! But... for their high prices, several much preferred restaurants to visit.

We've been here in summer when the ideal is eating on the terrace and in fall eating inside and love it both ways. This is a romantic place with absolutely beautiful sunsets, rustic decor and wonderful food. We've like every meal we got, always had...More

Not as fancy as it once was but still a great place to sit with your honey and have a good meal and a drink.
