Good Places to Eat

12 posts in this topic

I have been fishing and Kayaking down in the Fergus - Ottertail - Pelican Rapids area every weekend here for about a month.

I am getting sick of the standard old fast food joints.

Post your favorite places to get some good grub.

the cactus in perham is a good spot. excellent fish fry.

in fergus, if you like mexican, don pablos (not the chain) is good.

the underwood legion has the peterwich sandwich, but you have to deal with the likes of ChuckN or Gissert frequenting the establishment shocked.giftongue.gifgrin.gif

Deal with us, LOL. Usually we are just sitting there, wondering what Hjalmer Tordenskjold will do or or say next. One never knows.....

Seriously, the Underwood Legion has some good chow. The Peterwich as mentioned, and every Saturday you can geta fantastic prime rib sandwich and fries for about 7 bucks. Better get there in the afternoon, they sometimes sell out early.

For a good breakfast, it is hard to beat the Viking in downtown Fergus.

Zorbaz on Ottertail lake is also very good, and you can kayak right to their dock.

How about the Dalton Cafe? They whip up some pretty nice pancakes, SOS, etc. and they now offer pizza. Prime rib on Sunday. Never hear anyone talk about the place but they seem to keep busy. crazy.gif

I like that Chinese place in Fergus where the Sandpiper used to be, right next to Home Depot. The name escapes me, but they have a Mongolian Grill (like Khan's mongolian) that my wife and I really like. Their Buffet food isn't bad either. Mabel Murphy's in Fergus is also good, and I was just at Amor Rumors in Amor and had a fantastic Bacon Cheeseburger (with Fried onions or course). I'll be going back there.

If you're on Lida, hit Maple Beach Resort. Hands down best burger baskets in the county. If you're over by Battle Lake, go to Lida (see above).

Maple beach resort, I remember that place, when are they open? I always seem to be by there at the wrong times, but yeah they used to (and probably still do) have some of the best burgers.

I can't really argue with you about the best burger baskets in all of OT county, as I haven't sampled all of them. However, Billy's Corner Bar in Vergas is pretty well known for outstanding burgers.

I always enjoyed eating at Stubs in Battle Lake. Their walleye is great, and their steaks are very good as well.

Stubs is good food, if you go make sure to get there Reuben Balls (I know, I know.... grin.gif)

Stubs is by far the best food, expensive but always good. Prime rib is best around!

Got to get to the burger joint on Lida this year have heard just great things.

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
