Food was good. Highly recommend the Swedish Meatballs with lingonberry sauce they are delicious. Service was great and the views of Lake Superior are fantastic. After dinner you can walk on the beach they light a fire every night at sunset.

The Lutsen Dining room has a casual elegance with a Scandavion vibe. The menu is varied featuring local fish. Our family loves the Swedish meatballs and the walleye dinner. The Northshore salad is not to be missed.

Sad that this restaurant used to bee so good, but nothing we've had here has been worth the stop for lunch. The bread or buns are never fresh and the food tastes left over. The last time we stopped (we received a gift certificate) the...More

I have tried to find something decent about this restaurant in order to justify the one star, but I am at a loss. Perhaps at the end of this review I will find that one thing. The waitstaff were lackluster and could find little enthusiasm...More

Just finished having dinner at this lovely restaurant. It is quant and cozy without any kitzy or nicknacks. Just clean and open with a real Scandinavian feel. Service was nice and professional. I had the whitefish and really enjoyed it.
