As a vegetarian who is married to a meat eater, I was super excited about this place. The drive to it is beautiful but the food was amazing. My husband and I both got sandwiches and I wouldn't even share a bite with my husband it was so good. Will definitely be coming back!!

Best place to eat when visiting the north shore! I always make it a point to come here whenever I am visiting Duluth or Grand Marais.

This place has always caught my attention. I have been here by myself, on a quiet night out with a friend and with my family. Every time the food has been great, tasteful and the atmosphere accommodating. I was there with my family and the service was very good, the selection of food may be smaller than other restaurants but... More

The scallops were fantastic and the duck was tender and moist. Chocolate cremeaux with hot air candy is definitely recommended. Best meal of my life.

My husband and I found this place a couple of years ago and it is now a must stop on any trip we take to the North Shore. I love that the environment is not too fancy but the food is. You really can't go wrong ordering anything off of the menu, everything exceeds your expectations. We have enjoyed some... More

Was lucky enough to have the grouper special tonight...Absolutely perfectly balanced and cooked. Every bite was a fantastic mixture of texture, savory and sweet, temperature, acidity, and heat. The only better meal I've had in Duluth was the last meal I ate here. If you are looking for high end cuisine that won't disappoint ever, then come eat what Chef... More

We were not disappointed at all. The staff was very present and family oriented ( making sure you had a good time and the you enjoyed... More

So easy to find up the shore, and I had never been there before! What a wonderful experience, starting with being seated immediately at a wonderful table overlooking the lake. I was glad we had reservations as a couple hours later, the vestibule became crowded with patrons waiting to be seated. I hope at least a few of them were... More
