As usual, great service, excellent food. Had the Minnesota Meat Board & red wine (Bordeaux) as a meal and was delicious!

Charming location with beautiful lake views from large picture windows. Fireplaces were roaring in the "Northwoods" inspired supper club. Menu was creative and wide-ranging with many Minnesota touches (think pheasant and walleye), steaks, and fish along with traditional bar food. Enjoyed a flight of the house brewed beers to accompany our meal.

On the lower floor, an elaborate brewery has been built, which looks to be a comfortable gathering space after boating or to watch a game. I believe the Supperclub menu is available in both spots.

Really good friendly service, cozy in winter and great views on summer. Family friendly and food is good but disappointed by gluten free choices- some but used to be great! Good specials Sunday night and early week!

We’ve been to Birch’s a number of times and have never been disappointed. Excellent food, atmosphere and setting make this one of our favorites. Tonight we branched our from the usual items and tried the swordfish which was magnificent. Highly recommend!

Had to wait 40 minutes past reservation for a table.
Our actual server was great, the bartender was apologetic, but the rest of the service was mediocre at best.

One minute we were all hot and 5 minutes later we were all cold. Don't know if it's the big windows or what but the temp swings do impact the overall experience.

One of our all time favorites

Although on Valentines they seemed to push a lot of extra tables together which made it seem cramped

Had appetizers and drinks at the bar. Bartender was very friendly and chatty. Loved the food.

Went on Valentines day and initially had reservations for a table, but we found seats at the bar and this worked out much better. it seemed like the tables were tightly placed together for Valentines day, so I'm glad we took a pass on that.
Yes, it is expensive, but we think worth it.

The food and service were superb! We even enjoyed a delicious beer in the brew pub while waiting for our table. The bartenders in the brew pub were stellar, as well. We enjoyed the music upstairs during dinner. If we could change just one thing, it’s that we would have loved to be able to stay after dinner to enjoy a cocktail and the music a bit longer, but there was no room to do that. It was a lovely Valentine dinner! We will be back.

It was Very busy for Valentine’s Day and they did not perform well. I have been there many times and no issues, this time was different. First, I had my heart set on what seemed to be the only regular menu item (roast beef commercial, advertised as new) that they decided to take off the Valentine’s Day menu. My chicken was “ok”. Second, my cold beer came in a hot mug, didn’t take more than 2 drinks, I hate warm beer. Then, I asked for mashed potatoes with my chicken instead of pinto beans, they obliged for an up charge and provided me with cold, dry, boxed potatoes in a metal ketchup bowl, less than 1/4 cup. The desert, I didn’t even touch it, it looked nasty. Oh well, the up side is I had a gift card and it only cost me $60 out of my pocket. All this, which was obvious, and it went unnoticed by all. Last time there.

Because it was Valentine's day season, we expected prices to be higher than usual. What was conflicting was the website said "in addition to regular menu, Valentine specials would be added". The whole menu was specialty items instead. I ended up with the walleye which the panko crust was on the spicy side for me and way too much of it. Also, each special menu item had very unusual side items which was a little disappointing not to have at least a choice. This was our first time trying the supper club room, so I would like to go back and order off of the main menu next time and give it another go.

We loved the ambiance -- cozy, inviting, beautiful views! Service was outstanding: prompt and friendly, but not overbearing. Loved the little relish tray instead of bread brought immediately to our table. We started with the Bison Tartare, which was very good. For entrees, my husband had the Bison steak with a side of wild mushrooms . . . he loved all of it. I had the herb-crusted walleye: I was expecting a herby baked or broiled dish, but it was lightly bread and deep fried, which was just okay. It came with asparagus, which was good, and for the corn side dish I substituted cole slaw, which was good and a ridiculously huge portion. All portion sizes were generous.

Great place for lunch with friends. Server was very attentive. Food was delicious. The special pastrami duck grilled cheese was awesome! Add it to the menu :) Loved the BBQ ribs and fries small plate. Just enough for lunch. Added slaw to round it out.

The waitress that we had was mostly non-existent. She did not bring our vegetable tray until we asked twice. Food was mediocre and she rarely returned until we flagged her down. We felt like we were an after-thought to her. We spent $75 and did not even get a smile.

We love the place and the location, but have had hits and misses since the opening at Birch's on the Lake.
Positives: It seems BOTL management finally noticed freezing diners, especially sitting next to the expansive panes of glass overlooking lovely Long Lake in winter. It felt warmer this time. Golden rule for every restaurant in the universe; never, ever, EVER let your clients be cold, no matter what season it is. There is no bigger spoiler than being uncomfortable when paying a lot of money at a restaurant. Let your workers sweat first, and never give them access the the thermostat.
My wife's fried chicken was absolutely delicious, near perfect, just as advertised. Nicely done, even if the baked beans were a little too spicy.
Not so positive: I tried the "commercial" prime rib dish, marked as NEW on the menu. It had a lot of promise, but fell short on the execution due to inattention in the cut or carving. The meat was at least 50% fat, and very hard to see what was what under all the gravy. It all tasted good, but was sort of ruined because of all that fat. And, who the heck actually likes peas and carrots (side vegetable), anyway??

We ordered 4 meals, 2 appetizers and had drinks among our party. We did not care for the Bison appetizer at all. We found the size of the king cut prime rib for it's price was a bit spendy, the clam pasta dish lacked clam flavor and walleye also lacked flavor. We enjoyed several of the beers from the brewery but were disappointed in the Old Fashion. We have enjoyed Birch's in the past. Will be back but just to the brewery for bites and beer.

They seriously need to learn to manage their capacity. We waited over a half an hour to be seated for a reservation for two. The noise was out of control. And they way over packed the restaurant with patrons. We finished our food as quickly as we could and we left as fast as we could
