We have been coming here since it opened; drive five hours, and always look forward to the ambience, view, service and excellent food. Last night we almost had tears in our eyes. The waitress was very unfriendly and made us feel as if we were...More

We ate here on a Saturday night in the off season when there were not many other options. I’ve been coming to the tavern for years, and I think it could use some updating. The menu hasn’t changed, and the staff seemed uninterested. On the...More

Very different food and beer offerings, all good! The Asian Rice Bowl is our favorite, but the Key Lime Cheesecake is the best I have ever had!

We were looking for a restaurant in Grand Marais, and this place caught our eye. Food was delicious! I had the walleye filet, and my husband had the Nova Scotia fisherman’s stew. Busy place, great atmosphere and good service! We will be back!

My husband and I were on a road trip of Northern Minnesota. We stopped in her for a beer and an appetizer. The waitress was super-friendly! We had the dry rub wings that were served with wing sauce and blue cheese--delicious!

Outdoor roof bar was awesome. The Bloody Mary was to die for if you like spice and flavor. Music on the roof too.

stopped for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We had an order of wings and based on Taylor's recommendation, I ordered the Carol sandwich. This is basically a BLT + turkey, cheese, onion, sprouts and a topping. It is excellent. Taylor is a awesome bar tender...More
