We enjoyed the ambience as well as the service and food. The honey chicken was exceptional and the walleye was super! My husband had the spaghetti as well. A great restaurant overall.

Tried to make a dinner reservation, but very busy, so ate out on the patio of the bar, and was able to choose from the same menu. The food was "okay", and the scenery was lovely--overlooking the lake at sunset. (I ordered their pasta special which was a linguini with bacon and a delicious creamy alfredo sauce. The accompanying salad was good.) However, the "too busy" wait staff was overwhelmed, and kept running away from our table, when we were trying to ask her questions about the menu. We sat there for two hours--but most of it was waiting to order and waiting to get our check. All in all, it didn't leave me with a favorable impression. It is a bit on the pricy side. Big menu. We wouldn't eat here again.

Overlooking Lake Shagawa is Grand Ely Lodge. Inside is Evergreen Restaurant. Outdoor seating on a beautiful day is an extra.
We were seated immediately. The waitress was friendly and very efficient.
A delicious freshly made Caesar salad and fresh baked bread and real butter for starters. Pan fried walleye and Minnesota wild rice were spectacular. Two large filets cooked perfectly.
The price was worth every penny.

We have walked out of only 2 restaurants in 30 years of marriage, but this was one of them. Twenty minutes after being seated we still did not have water or been visited by a server. When we finally managed to flag someone, they apologized and hurriedly took our drink order. With no drinks and still no water 10 minutes later, we left. It was not that crowded though there was a large group at one table. It seemed to be a very disorganized place.

This is at the Grand Ely Lodge - so depending on day make sure to have a reservation
The place can get busy since guest at the lodge most likely eating here. This is one place to have a nice dinner; great service and decent prices. We eat on a Tuesday night; were lucky to get a seat right away without reservation; but just to make sure if weekends I imagine you better off calling ahead
they have nice ouside seating area - limited avail but still nice. The fish dishes were good - salmon and walleye
