My only regret is that we came for breakfast. After seeing all the awards, I really wanted to try a burger! Ah, well, I had an amazing chili omelette that received the works upon request; jalapenos, green onions, extra cheese... I was full and happy in no time! I joined my husband and a friend who had been camping in... More

Had the bourbon bacon burger and loved every bite. They know what they are doing in that kitchen, compliments to the chef.

We did not want to drive far for a meal, so we tried this place (while staying north of Silver Bay). We had our food as "take out". I had 2 chicken breasts and they were spicey in a good way, with good veggies. My salad was forgotten in our order. My son had the steak and loved it with... More

Located in a shopping plaza, this restaurant offered interesting sandwich combinations as well as amazing burgers. Nice atmosphere, good service, a little off the main road but worth it. We were a little later than the standard lunch crowd, around 130pm, only negative was that the fries were a bit hard. The burgers and sandwiches ( we did splitsies and... More

Cool little place, great service and really good food. The burger was fantastic! My wife had the Chicken Philly and it was good, but could have used a sauce or something because it was a little dry. Best food we've had in the area so far. Did I say the burger was good?

Camping on the North Shore? This is a great place to touch-base with a bit of civilization! You won't be disappointed when you try their nice selection of local craft beers, or one of the award-winning burger recipes (as evidenced by the giant burger trophies inside the front door)! This restaurant is contemporary, clean, has great wait staff, and a... More

Winner of a Duluth culinary contest....this burger delivers bold, spicy flavor! An absolute winner! Service was great. You might be fooled by the 'strip mall' location.....but don't be.....the Northwoods Family Grille has fantastic food!

Stopped for an early dinner on our trip up the North Shore. Little treasure of a spot. The smoked ribs with the blueberry BBQ sauce was fabulous!! $18 for 1/2 rack with super crispy hashbrowns and a fresh salad. Highly recommend! The burgees are award winning too!!

Thank JewelsinMN
