Our indoor seating is limited, so please make a reservation or give us a call at (218) 481-9280.

Music by Gordon Thorne. Gordon Thorne picked up a guitar 30 years ago and hasn’t put it down since. He spent years mining early American blues and jazz, blending them with his own style, and serves up what he calls, “the modern sounds of yesterday – today”. Known as the meanest fingerpicker in Northern Minnesota, it is where he spends his time working, raising kids, and playing a little guitar.

Moose lick salt on road
Moose lick salt on road

When temps warm in the spring, roads are salted to keep ice from forming. Like many of us, moose crave a little salt. Carefully drive paved roads – like the Gunflint Trail or Minnesota Highway 1 – at dusk [around 6:30 pm this time of year]. Keep an eye out and be prepared to stop. The same thing happens when temps first drop in mid-November into late December..

Best Stargazing
Best Stargazing

New moon nights – night when the moon is absent from the sky – make for great stargazing.

Here’s a great way to start – look due north after the sun has set and find the Big Dipper constellation [see photo] with its telltale 3-star handle and 4-star dipper.

In the winter, the dipper is at ‘3-o’clock’ with the handle hanging down.
