We stayed in Tofte and there are really limited places to eat. This was better than we antucipated. A little disappointed that the rib special didn't come with salad but my husband said the ribs were decent and the asparagus was really good. The rueben was fantastic!

Although we ended up getting our food to go, the staff were very accommodating and the food was very good. We planned on sitting on the patio with our dog to enjoy dinner and a few drinks after I ran the Superior 25K but the gnats were so bad we asked if we could just get our food to go.... More

We were there during an end of season party, so it was really busy but that wasn't a problem. The kids loved hearing live music for the first time :0)

My husband and I had dinner here while staying at Lutsen Mountain Resort. The view is spectacular! I wish the mountain tram had been running! I had the fish tacos which were ok. I prefer broiled fish vs. deep fried. My husband loved his Reuben sandwich. We would like to come back in the summer when we could sit on... More

Charlie's has a great view of the mountain and a wonderful deck. The food is good but not great and the service can vary.

Waitress made drinks didn't know what she was doing I took one sip asked for our check and left I still am shocked we were charged I'd only recommend this place for ordering a beer or wine Management needs to train their staff a little better Go to Moguls much much better And prices are the same
