About us

In the land of Paul and Babe, between the lakes of Irving & Bemidji, sits something extraordinary…

How we started

The story began 45 years ago when we opened Mr. Steak restaurant – only to return full circle, teamed up with our sons, creating a magical dining experience from (roof) top to bottom.

Our goal is to be your memorable experience in both cuisine and atmosphere. To be a gift to the area for “all seasons,” whether for business, Birthday Club, date night, the after 5:00 crowd, or the party to toast the town.


Entering Sparkling Waters under the canopy sits the Cozy nestled just beyond the double-sided fireplace with a cozy setting and a view of the action.

The Forks is grand with a touch of elegance and can be a private dining area for parties, dinners, or meetings.

The Main has a metro look, viewing our open kitchen, where any “foodie” can enjoy watching the team of chefs from a comfortable booth.

Up the stairs, overlooking the main dining room, shines The Balcony with a view of downtown beyond the Rooftop Terrace.

Enjoy the Waves Lounge for a wine selection that will dazzle you, plus a full bar splashing with signature drinks that salute the area. Enjoy the pet-friendly outdoor patio lingering with the aroma of a wood-burning fireplace.

All areas offer a spectacular view of Lake Bemidji.
