My husband and I looked forward to a nice meal at the resort hotel, knowing the resort is well known. Unfortunately the food was less then great. Service good and friendly, the atmosphere was ok but the prices are a bit high especially for the quality.

We went to the grill for breakfast. There were 4 of us. We sat outside on the deck by the lake. It was very relaxing and everyone's food was great.

Bluefin has beautiful views of Lake Superior. The food is good, but it is one of the more expensive restaurants in this area. The servers are consistently nice, knowledgeable (about the food and things to do in the area), and they provide great service. Food is good, and portions are normal sized (not small or generous). If you go there... More

This is a lovely grille. Seated upstairs with great view of Lake Superior. The food choice, scallops for me was delicious. Perfectly done with lovely prevention. My husbands hamburger, perfect. The server was efficient, pleasant & helpful. A bit pricey but well worth the extra $$$, especially for special occasion. Good Happy hour!

We were on our way up north, starving for good basic food. Great view from the restaurant. I had french toast; looked pretty, but tasted average. The spouse had eggs benedict; real good, but the hollandaise had a bit of a different twist.....maybe too much lemon? Tried the pork/wild rice sausage; was real good, but pricey for the quantity.........they give... More

I had the best scallops on pork belly that I have ever had. And the steaks were melt in your mouth. All were reasonably priced.

We stopped here because on a fall evening which was not a weekend this was the only restaurant open in the area. The view of Lake Superior was spectacular. There is outside seating, but the evening was chilly. The menu options include sandwiches and burgers ($12.50- $15.50), steak, fowl, fish, seafood and pasta ($19-35.50). The hamburgers were 1/2:pounders. I chose... More
