We are from the Twin Cities but we just had the best dining experience. The atmosphere is quiet and cozy and the noise level is non existent. The food was incredible with generous portions, the silverware and place settings are high quality, the service is impeccable, the dessert was out of this world, the price was reasonable and we can't...

Another great meal.....walleye, salad, and homemade bread. Best salad I have had in a long time, with lots of veggies and fruit. Just the right amount of food.

We happened to wander in to Lemon Wolf after having spa treatments next door. It was such a nice place, the people were wonderful and the food and cocktails were amazing! We will definitely go back.

Lemon Wolf Café is 'Cute as Heck' with great food on Lake Superior's Minnesota side. Eclectic menu items, yet solidly from the Northwoods and Lakes indeed. Meat n Potato people won't be disappointed. Wild rice soup? Fresh greens for salads? Oh yeah....

When you come to a restaurant the service and hospitality "feel" is as important as the food. Each time we have come here, we get the feeling that the waiters are harried and hassled by each new arrival at the door. This permeates the atmosphere and takes away from a feeling of welcome. Add to your wait and cook staff,... More

Hi! We are sorry you feel this way. Most of the 1000's of customers we serve every Summer/Fall tell us they love our place and how we run it. I will admit sometimes we feel stressed but only because we want to give each guest the experience they deserve and sometimes when it gets so crowded we feel we may... More

We were staying just up the road and wanted to venture out a bit. This place doesn't look like much on the outside, but it's what's on the inside that will bring you back. Very cozy, quiet, and great regional dinners. Not too pricy, and about what I expected for a place just off the trail.

We stopped here based on the fantastic reviews and were not disappointed! The wild rice soup was delicious! Loved the salad with house made blue cheese dressing. Warm and cozy with great service. We'll be back!

We had not visited in some years but will not make that mistake again! A charming little place - look for it in Beaver Bay - or ask. The food is great - with little touches like doilies under a bowl - that are quaint but welcoming. The atmosphere is creative and fun.

So wonderful! This place had been recommended by other people from the twin Cities who are in the hospitality industry and it lived up to to its reputation. I had never had rainbow trout before, it was fantastic! I was so full but ordered the coconut pie anyway and very thankful I did! We went at 3:30 in the afternoon... More
