Food was good, the soups were great. Nice appetizers. The view of Lake Superior is what gives the place atmosphere.

Our 2nd home is in Lutsen and we dine out often. This was our fourth visit under new owners. Irish stew was delicious...and rolls were amazing. Potato Leek soup was perfectly prepared. Service was attentive. Bravo!
