We were there just before the busy season so the restaurant had only 2 servers. However, the night was a busy one. They kept on top of the work pretty well and had positive attitudes. Staff were all very good. Atmosphere is casual, but nice...More

We had a great lunch here. Fried whitefish basket was amazing. Maple grilled chicken breast sandwich was so delicious. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The cherry pie was perhaps the best cherry pie I’ve ever had. It was a great stop, great value...More

A fun night out. Waitress suggested I try grilled Menominee, a white fish I'd never heard of. Wow, it was amazing.

Good fish, depending on what the catch of the day is and your preference, accompanied by a nice selection of salad and soup options. The outside dining is very nice weather permitting with nice views of Grand Maria’s and the harbor.

What a great place for lunch. Right on the water with outside seating available. What a view. Staff is very friendly. Had the deep Fried Cod. So delicious! Seagulls can be a pest sometimes. Highly recommend. Can have long waits sometimes!

The cafe is right on the water, with most of the outdoor seating on decks above the water. If you're lucky, you might see the otters who frequent the area. The wine and beer selection is small, but very good.

During our week in Grand Marais in 2016, we ate here almost every night. But after our experience this year, we won't be back. When we arrived the hostess said it would be 20 minute wait unless we wanted to sit on the deck where...More
