Enjoyed two breakfasts and two dinners. No need to start the car when you stay at Cascade. The restaurant is on the property of the Lodge.

We had good breakfast here. Interesting dining room. We had a large group and the server took good care of us. The food was good and the portions large.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The server was very nice, and the prices were reasonable. ($9 for a burger, $6 for a Bloody Mary). We tried the cheese curds, which were okay. The marinara sauce that was the dipping sauce was homemade and very good, so their spaghetti dish is probably great. I tried the cascade chicken,... More

We had breakfast the 2 mornings we stayed in the cabins and the food was delicious! The waiter was a very polite young man. Stopped back for their happy hour and the appetizer was good and the specials on the drinks were incredible reasonable.

The cabins that my daughter and I shared plus the cabin my daughter and her husband had were amazing. The staff was so accommodating at the cabins and staff at the restaurant were so nice, food amazing and prices so very reasonable for the whole package. I would make the 7+ hour trip again just to spend time here. :)

Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon wanting a little something to eat and a beer or two. Happy hour was fabulous with half price appetizers and reduced price drinks. Coconut crusted walleye fingers were our favorite. Thanks to Amanda our server for a really pleasant experience! We will go back. Menu looked great and the daily specials looked tasty.

We stayed at the Cascade Lodge next door and for convenience ate at the Cascade Lodge Restaurant. We actually made a reservation because it was a busy leaf viewing weekend although in hindsight there was almost no one there. Likely because the food was average at best. We had the walleye which was OK. Very plain and lacking any interesting... More

Good breakfast for the price, we were six and each one of us tried different breakfast dish. We were all happy except it took them more than 30 minutes to bring our orders out.
