“Nice view, good food, longer hours”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Great choice for dining around the Cascade River State Park area. Restaurants can be a little hard to find there, but this is right on Highway 61, with a beautiful view of the lake. Good food, moderately-priced, and great service, even though our server seemed to be handling far more tables than reasonable. Some places on the North Shore close a little early, but this is open until 9 on weekdays and 10 on weekends (summer hours), great if you're coming back from a day in the parks or something.

Happy to see you noted our longer hours! We are also open 364 days a year (closed on Christmas Day), as we strongly believe in serving our local community by being a dining option all year long! In addition, we are able to employ an excellent staff that does not have to worry about seasonal layoffs and can focus on making and serving great food!

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We were traveling from Duluth to Grand Marais, and encountered road construction and were so hungry. As soon as we saw this place, we pulled over. What a nice surprise! Mom had the turkey wild rice soup and I had the salmon salad sandwich. Excellent food that was reasonably priced. I'm glad the construction forced us in there!

“Not as good as in years past”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We ate here on a Sunday evening. The special was the turkey dinner and my husband and I both ordered it. The mashed potatoes were barely warm but the flavor was good. It would have been so much better had they been hot. The turkey was even less warm. The dressing was just chunks of large bread sauted with some onion. It would have been nice to have a vegetable with the meal.
