Resort dining changes effective June 1

Grille & Coho hours change, add outside dining

As many of you know, the State of Minnesota opened up outside dining for restaurants as of June 1. There is still no in-house dining in restaurants and no indication of when it will be allowed.

Here’s an update on our Bluefin Bay Family of Resort dining hours, options, and safety protocols as of June 1, 2020:

Coho Cafe BakeryCoho Cafe & Bakery:

The Coho Cafe & Bakery is now open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily for counter service of to-go or takeout orders and outside dining. Our front outside patio and side/back deck seating is available only after you order at the counter. Social distancing and safety protocols apply to counter service and outdoor seating areas. Signage directs guests how to order and dine under our new outside dining protocols.

Coho Cafe has added new summer menus:

2020 Summer Breakfast Menu

2020 Summer Lunch Menu

To order, stop in for counter service
or call ahead at 218-663-8032.

Coho Cafe is temporarily closed to in-house dining by order of the State of Minnesota and will re-open when allowed. In the meantime, we’re working on additional outdoor seating and policies to make the in-dining experience safe when the Cafe reopens.

Bluefin Grille

The Bluefin Grille is now open from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily for curbside takeout, room delivery, and very limited outside deck seating (weather and space permitting). The Grille’s lakeside deck seats very few guests with new social distancing requirements, so we encourage takeout and room delivery until we build a new outdoor seating area.

Guests are also welcome to dine with takeout at any open picnic table or outside dining space around the resort properties — remember the social distancing rule of at least six feet — or one moose — apart!

Spring/Summer Online Menu or call  218-663-6220.

We are building a NEW outdoor dining space in front of the Bluefin Grille with an expected completion date of mid to late June. This will provide additional outdoor seating to accommodate more guests, since in-restaurant dining space will be limited even when it resumes. We’ll share progress on the new outside dining space and keep you posted here on the I Love Bluefin Blog and on Facebook and Instagram.

Waves Cafe at Surfside: At this time, we do not plan to open Waves Cafe at Surfside this season due to Covid-restrictions and limited staffing. We’ll let you know if that changes.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we implement these new safety protocols and dining options. These are challenging times and our aim is to provide quality dining options and menu choices under very strict safety protocols and staffing challenges.
