We've gone several times on Saturdays for their prime rib special. It is outstanding, and the twice baked potatoes are to die for. Love their sandwiches and chicken pot pie as well.

I've been to 45 North four times. Each time it has been worse than the time before. First off, there is ALWAYS a wait, and while generally this is the sign of a good place, at 45 North it's a sign of horrible management. There...More

We liked our first trip so much we went back 10 days later. Our first visit was on a Friday, so we tried the Fish & Chips. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this dish. This fish was very FRESH and meaty and not overly breaded or battered....More

For people in the bar but the ceiling acts as an amplifier. I'd be afraid to be in there with a crowd without hearing protection. Service was beyond bad

We do have acoustic panels to deaden the noise level....not any louder than any other bar quite honestly. Sorry your service was bad....was that at the bar?

Hubby had been feeling under the weather and had not made any plans for the Eve. Thankfully early dining was available for a last minute reservation, several days before New Years Eve. Atmosphere was relaxed, service great and outstanding Prime Rib, our favorite.

When we imagined building a restaurant, we wanted to create something unique, contemporary and nostalgic to capture the essence of the area. Steve Gunderson, owner and builder of 45 North, truly wanted to build something that would evoke the region’s history of farming and incredible barns.

Thanks to Henry Gunderson, Steve’s great grandfather and a barn builder who’s barns are still standing today, we were able to top our building with cupolas from a barn he built in the early 1900s – an exciting and distinct nod to local history and our family’s heritage.

Our food will be created with heart and soul in our 'from-scratch' kitchen. From artisan cheeses, local meats, enticing desserts and seasonal produce - we will use locally grown products whenever possible to give our customer's something delicious and fresh.

In addition to fine dining, we will also have a fully stocked bar. A fun and welcoming place to gather and meet with friends; our bar will be a conversation piece in itself.

Dining is an experience to be shared with others – which is why we are striving to achieve a comfortable and friendly atmosphere where everyone feels relaxed and enjoys themselves.
