We did not expect top-quality dining, after our experience with resort food in other places. But Lutsen's dining room is as good as it gets on the North Shore. I had the stuffed pork tenderloin, which was spicy and tender. Everyone else had the potato-breaded walleye, which was the best version I've had of this dish. Loved the salads, wine... More

We enjoyed a very nice dining experience. We were seated by a pleasant hostess, and served by a terrific waitress, Sine. My wife went with the pork tenderloin and I enjoyed a grilled halibut. Both were wonderfully prepared. Great salad and bread started us out. There is a very complete wine list with wine by the glass. This is a... More

I always go for a breakfast buffet, but looked at this one before ordering and wasn't impressed. The a la carte options I ordered off the menu were very good. Eggs cooked to order. My companion got the buffet and was disappointed.

We've been customers of Lutsen for over 40 years. How disappointing to stop for lunch and be served the worst meal we've had anywhere. My husband had the prime rib sandwich which tasted 'off.' It was. He was sick the next day. My hamburger was raw in the middle. Aside from that, :p ! Nothing about it was tasty. I've... More

It is a very relaxing setting when you overlook the water while dinning. It is has a great north woods feel yet refined enough for a nice dinner. Prices of dishes are a bit on the high end, but the food is overall good. The walleye is a great value!

This is a beautiful dining room and, if they will seat you near a window, you can have an excellent view of the big lake. Being 'back home' in the Arrowhead, I went with my comfort food from childhood. The chicken & wildlife soup (with ham) was quite bland and there was not much ham in it. I've eaten walleye... More

Our bartender (Rob) was great. The food was okay but everything was a bit overpriced. This is a very dark, old lounge feel, kind of place.

12/7/15 We are local Lutsen residents. Usually, when we have a night out, we go to the Poplar River Pub at the resort. The food and service are always excellent! On our 41st wedding anniversary we made reservations in the dining room. We ordered the rack of lamb. It was absolutely horrible! It had layers of fat and maybe a... More

We stayed 3 nights at Lutsen Lodge on the lake Superior. The very best part was our dinner the 2 night in the Lutsen Lodge Dinning Room. We expected average, and got spectacular, thanks! My husband had the flank steak, and fun root veggies and steak fries. I had the roasted chicken, with a toasted stuffing and roasted veggies. We... More

Every time we spend our time at Lutsen it is very relaxing. We alway eat at the Resort Restaurant. The employees are always so friendly. We have always had the breakfast buffet and it has always been very good. I would recommend it.
