Quaint dining room overlooking Keweenaw Bay. Waitresses were great! The first night they sold us on the meatloaf, supposedly people come from all around for it, so all 4 of us ordered it. Unfortunately, I think it must be an acquired taste. None of us liked it. The positive, everything else we ate was great that weekend. Taco salad, pea... More

We stopped here with friends for an early dinner. They had a $7.95 roast beef special. It was okay but I'm used to home cooking at was almost like eating a decent frozen dinner. The mashed potatoes tasted like good instant ones, not anything like homemade. Their salad was nicer than most restaurants' house sakads. They covered it with lots... More

We usually don't eat in the motel restaurants but this night we were tired and didn't feel like going out. We had two couples and all four of us rated our meals as very good. We liked our evening meal so much we came back for breakfast and enjoyed another great meal.

Nice dining room with a view of the bay. Staff was friendly and attentive. We only ate breakfast here so can speak for the lunch and dinner fare. Good menu selection with reasonable prices.

We had camped in nearby Baraga State Park and wanted coffee and breakfast. We chose this restaurant for its attractiveness and its waterfront location. We enjoyed the usual tasty options. We did feel they were a bit understaffed which created less efficient service.

Pizza has crazy amounts of cheese on it! Order size smaller or else plan on taking home leftovers! Great view and can eat outside!

The folks here are always kind and thoughtful. The restaurant is solid, and has great views. It is a nice spot to conduct a business lunch or meeting. The staff is like extended family after your first few minutes there.

Read positive TripAdvisor reviews so booked to stay here for 4 nights on our recent snowmobile trip. Upon arrival we found out the Hotel was under bank control and the bar was closed and the restaurant menu was very limited. Because there is very few bar/restaurant facilities in the area we checked out early. Hopefully things will change under new... More

The staff were polite and friendly, the view nice, the food was good, the choices were a surprise considering it's in a motel, the bartenders were friendly and drinks were very reasonable.
