Other than the very beautiful view from our table we were VERY disappointed with our experience at this restaurant. Stopped here with four others after a week in the BWCA. We were all very hungry as we had a hard paddle into the wind to get out that day and other than lots of fresh fish, hadn't had any 'real' food for a week and certainly not served to us in a relaxed, comfortable setting. Our normal place up the road - where we usually stop and enjoy a great salad bar - lots of variety - with soup and bread - was closed due to a fire. We didn't want to wait till we reached Duluth to eat and we definitely wanted a place to sit and be served where we could relax and talk about the trip so we thought we would give this place a try.
VERY limited menu and definitely not kid friendly. I've seen other reviews talk about burgers at this place but our menu did not offer any. In fact, the only beef item I saw on the menu was a 6oz steak for $30 which doesn't include any type of soup or salad. None of their meals include soup or salad - they are an extra charge - and surprisingly, no type of bread product is served with the meal. Their menu items all had very elaborate, elegant sounding descriptions - apparently to try and justify their prices - but the food served was anything but. We ordered two sampler platters to start - not much on the plate considering the charge and the ONLY item that had ANY type of flavor was the bruschetta. The fritters were nothing but batter and oil, duck bites tasteless, and their 'campfire potatoes' nothing but plain, bland potato chips. For our meals we did pay extra for the salads and were hoping for something special because of the extra cost but no such luck. Very plain boring salad that included one small slice of tomato and cucumber and a sliver of onion - a simple offer of some croutons and/or shredded parmesan would go a long way here! Most of us ordered the ribs which were certainly edible but also certainly nothing special at all and lots of waste.
This restaurant might be nice for a special occasion if you don't mind paying for the view but otherwise is strictly for visiting tourists.
