      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Places To Eat On Ottertail?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone can refer us to a decent place to eat right on Ottertail. We have an anniversary on July 2nd and would like a decent place to eat at while we are at our cabin in Ashby. The past few years we have gone to Ten Mile Resort, which is very good, but we just want some different scenery.

As far as eateries on the water, you are probably limited to Zorbaz and Greystone.

While I love Zorbaz chow, I am not sure if you want to go to a pizza/taco joint for an anniversery.

Greystone is right up the road, and now has a boat that features a dinner cruise on the lake which might be just what you are looking for. They have a double decker boat with lav and food facilities.

If you want something slightly off the lake, Elmers Texas Barbecue on hwy 78 is good, as is Thumper Pond in Ottertail city.

Personally, my wife and I go to the Otter Supper Club in Ottertail city for our anniversery every year. Excellent food and friendly atmosphere.

We like Ten Mile too - mmmmm, blue cheese dresing grin.gif

Wow...Greystone has a dinner boat now?!?! That must be something new just this year. That sounds pretty neat. May have to check that out this year when we're up there. I assume they have some sort of bar on there too? tongue.gif

For an anniversary Stubs is a must, ten times better food quality then Ten Mile and Greystone, romantic atmosphere and a dove bar for desert.

Stubs...That is in Battle Lake right? Is it a fancy place, or can you go dressed pretty casual...shorts/shirt/ballcap?

Stubs, any attire is fine within reason. All their steaks are awesome, big fan of prime rib and new york.

Stella's in Battle Lake (next to the hardware store) has really good food and is a nice place to eat. I recently went there and was impressed.

Thumper Pond and Otter Supper Club are the best place for an anniversary dinner. Thumper Pond is more formal with table cloths and isn't connected to a bar. Thumper does have a lot of wedding on Saturdays though. But the food at both places is very good. I've even believe that the chef at the Otter is married to the gal who is the chef at Thumper. Also for those who like to save a little money, look in the Midweek for the ad for the Otter. The radio stations from Fergus Falls and Perham have certificates, but the best time to call for them is Friday morning. I just picked up two $25 certificates for just $12.50 each. Most of the time they are $17.50.

Three best would be Stubs, Thumper Pond, or the Otter. The Fireside in Detroit Lakes is a good option if you don't mind a bit of a drive.

No way Stub's is 10 times better than Greystone. Twice the price of Greystone yes! Joe Z.

Alright, Stub's is only 7 times better than Greystone, but 20 times better to take your wife for anniversary dinner. grin.gif

Just got back from 5 days in Battle Lake. Stubs was excellent as usual. I had walleye which was cooked wonderfully, We also had steaks in our party, and the pork chop. Everyone was happy!

Then the next night we went to Stella's. It was packed, but considering how busy they were, the service was good and we didn't have to wait an inordinate amount of time, of course we immediately ordered appetizers. We had a full order of nachos, which were some of the best nachos I've ever had (chicken, black beans, tomatoes, cheese, etc. roasted in the oven, very tasty!!) but a full order is two large plates (enough for 4 people easily) and we were almost full just from eating that. We didn't try any of the sandwiches, but the wood oven pizzas were great as well! I think they're going to be very successful.

Just a little note on where to eat in ottertail... there are many great places to eat, but the best places are those where you wouldn't think to look... for your money, grandmas, they serve breakfast all day long, on the east side of main street in ottertail, it's a no brainer... you just need to take a drive around the lake and you will find everything that you are looking for... and if you drive to perham, the station is the best food around... just drive around and you can find great places to eat... if you see a little place outside of any city, just try it... some of the best laid plans are those that are never planned... later the swcrappie slayer...
