The Strand Waterfront Dining Room

2019 Wine Spectator Small

Located in the Lodge at Lutsen Resort, The Strand Waterfront Dining Room is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. “Strand” means shore in Swedish, highlighting one of the dining room’s best assets – the incredible view of Lake Superior and the Poplar River.

The dining room underwent a complete renovation in December of 2018. This included new flooring, walls, tables, chairs, lighting and more, all while maintaining the historic integrity of the Lutsen Resort dining room.

The menu consists of a strong blend of contemporary and traditional North Shore Cuisine items. With the recent renovation, we added a 16-bottle wine dispensing station as well as a 1200-bottle enclosed temperature-controlled wine cellar. 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. To learn more about the renovation, see our blog post.

Daily full breakfast buffets frequently complement the breakfast menu. Holidays are celebrated with special menus and buffets.
