We stopped here on the last evening of vacation based on TA reviews and other posts such as Under the Radar. Such a surprise!! Great up-north atmosphere. We were still expecting "standard dinner fare". The menu was very ambitious with standard steak and seafood options......but...More

Shrimp cocktail was great with horseradish paste. We enjoyed the walleye and the seafood risotto. Friends enjoyed the salmon and the Alfredo.

Clearly there was a chef who knows what he/she is doing. The food was far better than we were expecting, in taste and presentation. We tried the stuffed shrimp with Havarti cheese, and the perch. Both were as good as what we find in better...More

The food was good but a little high priced. Service was fine and the waitress did her best to accommodate when an issue arose with one if our meals.

Four Kunde wines were served during this delicious meal. “Magnolia Lane” Sauvignon Blanc was served with house-made Crab Rangoon.

Stayed at The Ridge for an outing and then stayed an extra day. Decided to wander away from the restaurant there and try something different. What a wonderful surprise. Dinner was amazing and local entertainment (singer and guitar player) made for a great night. If...More
