The Visit here was one of the worst experiences we have ever had. The place is totally rundown and has not been cleaned in months. The Bar is the main function of the Restaurant as it is obviously the evening watering hole for all of...More

Our visit was a constant discovery of why this property is still for sale. Many items are broken and little has been fixed. This resort is past its prime with little staffing and poor facilities. The view was nice but we won't go back and...More

Awesome walleye breakfast (with eggs, hash browns, toast), and I sampled their pancakes which were very good as well. Give them a try, see for yourself, they have good food!

We stopped at Windigo for dinner while driving the Gunflint Trail looking for moose to photograph. The atmosphere was rustic in keeping with the area. The food was good and well cooked and the waitress was efficient and well informed. It was a good experience.

We stopped in for drinks after our BWCA trip. The bartender was cool and we had a nice time sitting outside on the deck. Then our friend went down by the fenced-in dog area to see if they liked to be pet. The dog barked...More

The waitress was also renting camping sites. The building is a little rundown and outdated. The fish tasted fairly good, the burger was fine, the salad was okay. The service was slow even though we were the only customers at first. Another couple came in...More

Stopped here after our 6 day trip in the Boundary Waters. It's a great lodge with cold beer and beverages. We didn't have any food, but it was a great place to stop on the Gunflint Trail after our trip for a celebratory cold beer!
