We live 18 miles from island lake inn and when we want a great burger, we head here . One of the best burgers I have had and at age 65, that is a lot of burgers. Very fair priced and very nice decor, with very nice employees.

As you walk through the doors of the Island Lake Inn, located on 7153 Rice Lake Rd., Duluth, MN 55803, you instantly feel welcomed by the smiling, happy faces of the other customers and staff. It’s a “seat yourself” type of restaurant. Though it’s a restaurant, it does have a bar for the bikers, in the summer, and the sledders,... More

I visited here with my family while my brother was at a local camp site. We had a variety of menu choices. The wings were good. Crispy and a bit spicy. They ran out of nachos. The pizza was good. It took extra time to get the food due to the pizza but that was the best menu choice that... More

Great burgers. The homemade fries are to die for. Had the olive burger and hubby had the bacon burger. Both were just right. Good size and tender.

The first time we visited the Inn with new owners we each had a strange burger made with lamb. While I give points for something new, it was not good. And my wife and I both like lamb. So wanting to give them a fair shake we returned last Friday night. Unfortunately the second time was worse. I had the... More

The Island Lake Inn is one of the only restaurants in the area, so its a good thing that the food is tasty. After a day of fishing and boating on Island Lake it is always fun to stop in for a burger. The restaurant is recently remodeled and is plenty spacious inside. My favorite is the olive and cream... More

We visit the Island Lake Inn a couple times a summer because it is a nice distance from our house so we hop on the Harley and head out for a meal and drinks. Food is good, but portions are little and price is higher. The place used to be cozy and after the remodel it feels to much like... More
