This is very historical building. The restaurant has excellent food and the service is great. The dining room is beautiful with views of Lake Superior. It is a little higher priced but well worth the money. A wonderful dining experience.

We did not expect top-quality dining, after our experience with resort food in other places. But Lutsen's dining room is as good as it gets on the North Shore. I had the stuffed pork tenderloin, which was spicy and tender. Everyone else had the potato-breaded...More
