Stopped in for lunch while going through and very pleased with the service and the reasonable price. The hamburgers are good and the view of the Lake makes for a good place for a break.

I stopped for a quick bite during a long road trip. Service was a little slow, but I was having such a great time listening to the banter in the kitchen that I didn't mind. Don't know who it was - I couldn't see them - but they definitely enjoyed their jobs! It's a pleasure to eat food that people... More

I had seen this restaurant on our way thru Ashland and decided to stop for lunch on our way back. The 1st thing I noticed was the atmosphere and nice waitresses making everyone feel important. Lots of good food listed on the menu, I was glad I chose the chicken salad which was wonderful. Lots of chunky chicken with veggies... More

I can tell that this is a place for the locals and it always seemed busy. The staff knew the locals personally which says a lot. Price of food was good. The first impression wasn't great but we were glad we stuck it out.

Good dinner food and reasonable prices. Nice selection without being overwhelming. We had burgers and pasta dishes. They do serve a nice prime rib but we were not there at that time.

A nice restaurant along the highway my only complaint is that the entrance door that is in the back was poorly marked so it took us a minute to figure out how to enter. The staff was friendly and accommodating would recommend to anyone wanting a quick bite.

Yes we did! We ate here for supper the first night and then came back for breakfast. The buffet was good but breakfast was better. 4 people in our group. 2 had the breakfast buffet and 2 ordered from the menu. ALL 4 were very pleased!

We were on our way to Duluth to see the Tall Ships Festival and stopped here for Breakfast. Now, I'm not sure who would be responsible for this, but know that if you are coming from the east, the entrance to the parking area is in horrible condition....with major potholes. It wasn't bad when we left toward the West. Good... More

Food was good, service was marginal Pesky flies are not appetizing. View is wonderful. Cuban sandwich was very tasty on flat bread.
