“Bad food up north”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Visited on a Friday night for their walleye fish fry special. What a mistake. The fish breading was greasy and did not taste good. The french frys were rubbery and very greasy. The service was extremely poor and the waiter failed several times in responding to our repeated requests for water, silver ware, additional drinks, etc etc. The only good thing was the building, which was build years ago from huge north wood logs from the local area. I will never return to tis establishment.

“Good”

Had a burger with blackberry jalepeno compote that was very tasty. Great atmosphere and decor, log building with a massive fireplace. Outdoor deck as well.

“Very very poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

You have to ask for ever little thing you need. No refills on Ice tea. Food not the best. Roast beef comes on a a plan bun, ordered bread with chili and received two slabs of white bread on a plate, no butter nothing.
Will not go back.

“Never a disapointment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

My wife and I recently had quests up for the weekend and after a day on the water we took them out to Sherwood Forest Tavern. As usual it was an absolutly great experience. The walleye fish and chips are the second best in the state (Sorry Brits in Minneapolis is still the best), but these are great, light tasty breading and fresh flaky fillet. The servcie is always great and you get a very welcoming feeling. I usually don't take the time to write a second review but I'll make the exception here because the experience is just that good.

The good is great, and we love sitting out on the deck overlooking the lake--a great summer tradition!
