“Great atmosphere,great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Traveling in Minnesota decided to try this restaurant. Outside the place it had a beautiful display of flowers all over and looked unique and inviting so tried it and we weren't disappointed! We ate outside on the front porch and had a great meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone . Service was quick , staff very friendly, pricing moderate...just a very pleasant experience I'd recommend.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

We had a couple different walleye entrées, and duck. They were all exceptional. The salads were very fresh, and the corn chowder was amazing.

To top it off, we had amazingly friendly service.

“Nice little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

We stopped here on our trip up lake superior. It had a beautiful view of the lake shore and the food was great. The cost was similar to other places in the area. The waitress was also very nice. It was interesting eating at a house turned restaurant.

“Nice menu, come here if you have the time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

My family (4 adults, 1 teen) stopped in for dinner on a week night after a long debate about where to eat. We were greeted pleasantly and were kindly offered a larger table when it was clear we were crowded. The hostess expertly told us the evening's specialties and our mouths were watering. About 20 minutes later a server came to take our drink order. She apologized for not realizing we were in her section. Another 10 minutes later we got our drinks and placed the meal order. Options on menu looked great. Easily another 15 minutes before we saw our salads. After the server left we noticed that we had no utensils on the table and called her over again to bring them. Another serious delay before meal arrived. The walleye and wild rice & salad were fabulous. Others raved about the other entrees, including a gyros pizza and specialty burgers. We were not in a hurry, but didn't appreciate the neglect, having to request a drink refill and then the check. We were seated for an hour and 45 minutes, that's without cocktails and appetizer or dessert. The manager wasn't pleased to hear my feedback about the service when I suggested that our server probably had more tables than she could manage. Oh by the way, they don't take American Express.

“Do not order steak.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

I had the new York strip, my companion thevkansas city steak.mine was tender but quite a bit of waste. My friends was tough and had little flavor. We arrived 45 minutes before closing. This may have affected the quality The potatos seemed to have been microwaved. Waitress apologized for the quality of the steak.
