Another trip up north and the first place we stopped for dinner, it was absolutely amazing, the food is better than any restaurant in the Cities! We love the romantic atmosphere and we especially love the Maple Bacon Creme Brûlée! We will be back!

Love this place. Great meal. Our daughter still talks about this being the “best burger she’s ever eaten.” Highly recommend. We sat outside and really enjoyed it.

The fresh whitefish was exquisite. The rest of the experience was a huge disappointment. Service was slow and non-professional; waited 10 minutes for water, 20 minutes for a glass of wine and 35 minutes before food arrived. Bread, salad and entree were served simultaneously, for...More

Absolutely the worst dinner we have had in a long time, along with sub par service. Wood-fired pizza (really?) that had a gummy crust, was served barely warm, with tiny only dabs of cheese. The waitress did apologize for not having green peppers for the...More

I believe the lamb shank was on the menu when we were there in July, but I think a phone call would be a good idea! Sometimes menus change with the season.
