Traditional American cuisine in the Northland Inn.. In Short It's half-open to the eight-story atrium of the Northland Inn, half not. Folks who come for candlelit dining are on one end, while crowds await to enter the enormous attached conference center. You can order aspiring-to-gourmet dishes or "simplistic" fare (as the menu puts it). Menu choices include beef tenderloin, steak, salmon, walleye, shrimp, chicken, pasta and baby back ribs. There's also an appetizer and dessert buffet.
