This was top shelf but is now out of business. Natural setting with distant views of Lake Superior's Chequamegon Bay. Excellent wait staff and a wine steward, with a wine tower.

A very nice atmosphere for couples, friendly staff and expertly prepared food. There was a bit of a lull between the salad course and main course, but they did provide bread and butter to nibble on. All in all a nice, if somewhat long evening.
