Dining

Lutsen Resort offers two unique dining experiences available to guests and the public.

The Strand Waterfront Dining Room

Wine Spectator 2018

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 125 selections and a growing number of wines from “Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Picks”. Daily full breakfast buffets complement the breakfast menu.  Holidays are celebrated with special holiday menus and Buffets. Dinner reservations are recommended.

Please Note: The Strand Waterfront Dining Room will be closed from November 26th through December 13th. There will be a blended menu with some selections from The Strand served in the Poplar River Pub during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

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.
