The outside is not much to look at but the service is friendly and the burgers are excellent! We were skeptical judging the outside but had a great meal at a great price! Well worth the stop.

I heard so much about this place and I was pumped to try and eat here but I wasn’t too impressed with our food. There’s more bread than meat on the sandwich.

We spent the night in Two Harbors, asked a local for a recommendation for supper, and the Earthwood was it. One of the nightly specials was lake trout. My memory of trout from many years ago was that it's too fishy for my palette. Our...More

Just finished having cod fish and chips. Awesome! The homemade tarter sauce and cole slaw very good! The owner even gave us a taste of their fried herring-- very good! Owner and staff very friendly. Thanks for a great lunch. Joel and Karen

This place is great for lunch and drinks. You can get a cheeseburger with fries for $6.00. They get fresh fish from Lake Superior delivered by the commercial fishermen several times a week. Freshwater Herring (bluefin) is like candy and you can't beat the Lake...More

Stopped in for dinner tonight after getting positive reviews from friends and good comments on Trip Advisor. Obviously popular with locals, but we were made to feel very unwelcome. No one greeted us. We stood at the bar for several minutes. The bartender finally asked...More

Be sure to stop if you see their "Fresh Herring" & Fresh Lake Trout" sign! Amazingly good and locally sourced from Lake Superior! The coleslaw and tarter sauce are homemade! Fairly priced! BTW, Bluefin Herring is a local delicacy-don't be put off by the thought...More
