BBQ Restaurant
$$
“This limited seating restaurant requires advanced reservations if you want to be sure to get in. Located directly on the shore of Lake Superior you will be treated to a delightful sunset most days. Our recommendation for food is the brisket or fillet if it is available, but skip the cheesecake - not worth the calories in our opinion.”

Bay
“The name is deceiving - although it used to be all sandy, the last few years of very high water levels in Lake Superior has pulled all the sand elsewhere. After a walk down 80 steps, you can relax on the rocks and watch the kids swim or practice your skipping skills with the rocks. It is a perfect places to spend a summer afternoon.”
