All About

The Menu

The Grillworks wood fire grill, where steaks and rotisserie chickens roast to perfection over an open flame, is the heart of the restaurant. For the adventurous type, field fresh game such as duck, elk, and venison, as well as foraged morels, lobster mushrooms, and more will rotate through the menu when in season. A full bar will offer unpretentious craft and classic cocktails, as well as a curated wine list and local tap beers. 


The Man. The Myth. The Legend.

Tom Longtree. “Not much to say”. That was the man’s reply when asked to tell his tale. Classic Tom. If you haven’t heard of Tom Longtree, you’ve heard of someone like him: a real northwoods folk hero. As the story goes, sometime during The Roaring Twenties he up and left the Twin Cities and headed north along the Mighty Mississippi in search of greener pastures - or perhaps taller pines. He trekked from St. Paul to Lake Itasca, meeting kinfolk and learning to trap, hunt, fish, and work an axe along the way. It was a harder life but a simpler one. He lived off the land with only his wits and his hands, and as his story spread from campfire to campfire, his legend took root.
