Wonderful and unique food, fabulous staff and very north shore-y vibe. (We weren't the only ones lunching in winter boots!) My two daughters are vegan and they helped us pick a good lunch and accommodated our restrictions. Beautiful view and definitely worth a stop!

I just love this place, fresh, simple food made to impressive dishes to delight the taste buds. I just can say, stop in here if you have the chance. All our friends from the Twin Cities love this place too. Staff is always friendly and they provide good service.

So I knew this place was great because we've been here before and I actually bought the cookbook when it came out a few years ago but boy...I was not disappointed. We had the grilled porcini (cepes) as an appetizer, the venison tenderloin as our main course and the berry pie a la mode for dessert. YUMMO! We also decided... More

One of the best places to dine in the Duluth, MN, area. Nice drive along the shore of Lake Superior. It was recommended by a well know local who knows his Duluth restaurants. Great view of Lake Superior from our table. Our special of the day was tunal taco. All from scratch. Was great.

We're locals and visit Scenic periodically for a meal that is a step up from what is available along the shore. The menu offers creative choices which are delicious. The options are somewhat limited and new items a little more frequently would benefit us locals. The setting along the shore is great and provides the visitor with a chance to... More

Pricey by my standards but very good! They have unique offerings and I understand their menu varies from visit to visit. We were up the shore for an afternoon drive and decided to have lunch as our kids both told us we would like the food but not the price.

Took finances daughter and husband there and knowing well they would love this place. They loved everything about it. Customer service, friendly and knowledgeable along with a great menu for lunch. Hard pressed to find a place like this even in the cities. Worth the drive from anywhere.

You can have a like experience as we, the food here is exceptional but a bit pricey. The atmosphere is OK and seems a little noisy.

It doesn't get any better than this place. Great service, fabulous mouth watering dishes, beautiful location and mellow casual atmosphere. Tried the Brussels sprout salad & it's amazing!
