The view is spectacular from this establishment but if you are looking for high end good with a high end price all you'll get here is a big bill ... good is less than average and the bartender is a jerk

Love the big bay windows overlooking Lake Superior as you dine. Small, intimate dining area with a cozy lounge and bar. Delicious food, great choices.

Everything was great while we were there. 4 kids and 4 adults, handled quite well. Our server was excellent, and the food was great as well. Live music (a guy with a guitar) while we were there. Gift shop was cute.

We sat on the upper level of the restaurant and had a great view of Lake Superior! We had the meat and cheese appetizer that was very tasty. My husband had the burger and I had the seafood pasta special. It was worth every penny! We will be coming back here!

they have way more guests than staff and it shows. Need a hostess to take calls and assist guests waiting. Could they have a back up plan to call on other staff during times with heavy traffic? We took our food to go so we could eat before 10pm and the food was good, but we ordered simple items. I... More

Interestingly, this restaurant tries to cater to both mid-range and fine-dining guests. The menu jumps from reasonably priced apps and burgers ($12-15) to fine dining entrees ($25+). Sounds reasonable, but we were stuck with our menu options; if we weren't interested in a burger or other hand-held, we were out of luck on more moderately-priced options. With that said, I... More

On a romantic getaway and we were seated in a quiet area with a fantastic view. (And then moments later a party of 10 was seated right next to us despite the fact that the place wasn't super busy.) The meal started with fresh warm bread, very good! The lake trout was very good, but the ribeye was just okay.... More

Don't order wings hot unless you like HOT! Otherwise the food was as would be expected from a mid-upper tier restaurant: fresh, cooked properly (not over or under-done), good selection, and nice accompaniments. Scallops that far from the ocean were quite nice. Trout which I suspect is local was terrific. Wine selection decent. But I wasn't "blown away" and wouldn't... More
