Lutsen Resort offers two unique dining experiences available to guests and the public.
The Strand Waterfront Dining Room
The Strand Waterfront Dining Room, located in the Historic Lutsen Lodge, offers a casual fine-dining experience where the superb quality of food and service is complemented by the stunning views of Lake Superior and the ambiance of this special site. Open for breakfast (7:30 – 11 am), lunch (11:30 am – 2 pm), and dinner (5:30 – 9 pm), the dining room menu features a strong blend of contemporary and traditional North Shore items. The wine selection is unmatched in the area with over 200 selections and a growing number of wines from “Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Picks”, including #1. Daily full breakfast buffets complement the breakfast menu. Holidays are celebrated with special holiday menus and buffets. Dinner reservations are recommended.
Poplar River Pub
The Lutsen Resort Poplar River Pub has a full casual menu and plenty of “spirits” to drink. Watch your favorite sporting events. The Pub opens weekdays at 4 pm and 11:30 am on weekends and holidays. A children’s menu is available. The Poplar River Pub now features 12 new tap lines including one nitro line. All of the lines carry Minnesota beers!
Extensive Wine Selection
With the recent renovation of the Strand, we added a 16-bottle wine dispensing station as well as an enclosed temperature-controlled wine cellar. The cellar can hold between 1100-1200 bottles of wine in a variety of formats. The Strand Waterfront Dining Room now carries nearly 200 different bottles of wine. We have 20 wines from the Wine Spectator Top 100 list, including #1.
