This restaurant is very well rated but fall short for our family. Hostess was rude and unfortunately set the tone for the experience. This is a compact space making it hard for those with ambulation devices like walkers or canes. Could not accommodate wheel chairs....More

The food is made with love from some of the freshest ingredients. Trout caught that morning from Lake Superior. Save room for awesome desserts!

Specialty is fresh fish and we both enjoyed it over a quiet dinner. It was part of a romantic getaway weekend.

My family loves to stop at the Lemon Wolf each time we are in the area. We love the variety of the menu and the desserts are amazing. Our two sons loved howling like wolves to get a treat. A North Shore favorite!

This is a charming restaurant with excellent food. They offer fresh fish that is cooked perfectly as well as other local specialties such as wild rice Swedish meatballs. Their homemade desserts are superb. The wait staff are friendly and attentive.
