We came for a late lunch and had good service. My only complaint and I lodged it with the staff, is that the website is challenging. Not sure which restaurant was which, and it was not responsive design. As a non-resident it was tough to figure out.

I had THE best ceasar salad ever here!! And my adult daughter had the grilled cheese and tomato soup - not just your average grilled cheese. She loved it. Very warm atmosphere - lots of wood and smiles.

This place has something for everyone. The microbrewery offers craft beers for those interested. For the foodie, the menu offers so many options. I had the whitefish fry since that is what I crave when I come to Lake Superior. This "traditional" menu item for Wisconsin had some fantastic flavor surprises. Even the coleslaw was not your typical canned version.... More

We stopped here because the reviews were excellent. we first sat in the main dining room. The temperature in room was SO warm that we had to move. We were informed that the middle bar served the full menu. We have the Lake trout and the serloin steak. Both were great and the Brown Nut ale was nice with the... More

Chose the prime rib at Deep Water Grille and it was excellent. The service was great and we had a very pleasant server. I would definitely go back.
