We initially sat in the bar area. After getting menus and water right away, we ended up leaving to go to the restaurant area after 15 minutes of no service. We did get seated and since we knew what we wanted, our order was taken,...More

I like eating here when visiting. The deck is really nice to relax on when it's nice out. Food is good, and there is a variety. They have live music some nights too! It's right by the hotels at Lutsen Mountain, easy to get to.

We had an okay meal here. We had looked at the menu on line, but the actual menu at the restaurant was different. Although the restaurant was only moderately full on a Wednesday night, the service was very slow and indifferent. There are much better...More

The service was superb, and the appetizers were scrumptious, but they no longer offer that delicious coleslaw that used to be a staple. Plus, the Summit sandwich was somewhere down in the valley; it was not good at all.
