We had dinner here with friends while on a recent trip to the North Shore. We arrived on a Sunday at about 6:15 with reservations and were seated right away. The interior is cozy and rustic. The four of us split an order of onion rings for an appetizer; OK but nothing special. For the main dish I had the fried walleye, my wife had the pork shanks and another in our party had the turkey dinner special. My wife and I ordered salads which never came; apparently the server mis-understood that we wanted them before the mains. The walleye was good, a very large filet breaded with breadcrumbs. I liked it but would have preferred a flour dredge. My walleye was fine, but our fourth companion had it too, and hers had several bones. The pork shanks turned out to be the best meal: my wife exclaimed as to how good they were, and based on the bite I had, I would agree. This meal was three small shanks with very good mashed potatoes. All of our meals had steamed broccoli with a light lemon butter coating which was OK, but on the turkey special the broccoli was swimming in this sauce and it was too much. We took home leftovers, as all the portions were large. The service was a little slow. Considering the place was about half full, the noise level was not bad at all. Except for the turkey special the mains were $18.95 each, which seemed a bit pricey. Overall this was a pretty good dining experience; not great, but good enough for a repeat visit.
