My husband and I have eaten many places on the north shore and we agree that breakfast at cascade is the best! We go out of our was to make sure we get there. We loved it a few years ago and there have been recent upgrades (new floors, furniture, etc) The upgrades did not take away from the historic... More

Stopped enroute to Duluth for a late lunch. Very enjoyable food and drinks. A little slow on the service but otherwise good.

This place has really good food with an "Up North" atmosphere. There is a great view of Lake Superior. I highly recommend stopping here if your in the area.

As always we had a great time at Cascade Lodge. We always get cabin 11, a great cozy log cabin. We snowshoe in the area every year and this is a wonderful place to stay, right by the Superior Hiking Trail and across from the Lake. Great place to stay any time of the year !! Great restaurant and pub.... More

There are things I remember about places we visit. I thought the pies my wife make was from another place we had visited along the North Shore. But no, her Fruits of the Forest was inspired by a pie at Cascade Lodge Restaurant. We have ate there many times. And when we stayed at Thomsonite Beach Inn last June we... More

Sorry, we don’t feel the love for this place that many others do. Based on TA reviews, we made the 11 drive from Lutsen to give it a try. The interior is very homey, the staff very nice and the drink portions o.k. The food was very so-so. Sandwiches and burgers must be the main draw, since this dinner entrée... More

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your visit to our Restaurant. The Moroccan chicken dish that you refer to was recently "redone" and we have had rave reviews from our customers. We are truly sorry that your dish was only "ok". The shrimp you refer to is not a cheap product and if it was overdone, then your... More

We love this wonderful restaurant. I know I have written about it before but it is such a good place. The wait staff are friendly, smile and welcoming. We stay in Lutsen but make the short drive here. The food can't be beat. Also, no inflated prices like Lutsen. I had my first Guiness there years ago and have one... More

Food is as good as you'll find on shore, it's excellent. Atmosphere is warm and inviting. No crowding and staff are very, very welcoming. They're not serving us for free but it feels like they're doing mostly because they love it, their part up north!

Great environment, service and food. Its worth a stop off the highway or snowmobile trail. We were celebrating our anniversary and it couldn't have been more quaint.
