Has anyone eaten at The Boulders north of Walker?

9 posts in this topic

We'll be heading up to Cass in August and I was wondering if it was worth the trip to the Boulders.....

Also, any other recommendations for dinner in the Walker area?

Been to the mexican place and the pizza place down from Reeds.....How's the steakhouse across from Northern Lights or the Ranch House or The Wharf? It's been 20 years since I've been to the Ranch House.

Any help would be appreciated.

Tried it last year and it was very good. A little upscale and somewhat pricey but worth it. Ranch house still good as well as Benson's and Zona Rosa's. Charley's is good also. The Wharf is gone. Enjoy your meal and good luck fishing.

Charlies Boat House along side his normal restaurant is great outdoor dining. Saturday night crab leg feeds, great ribs, lobster and artichoke dip, etc.

Great food in a great setting!

If you make it to Longville, the wife and I really enjoy visiting Patrick's each year. Real nice dinner and/or lunch. The salad bar is always great along with the main course. We especially like the Walleye dinner.

We try to save room for ice cream at Frosty's, also in Longville.

Enjoy

I've been told by a few people that the buffet, Dancing Fire(?), at Northern Lights is very good. Boulders is "northern MN upscale", a little pricey, but good and the Smiling Moose, the new place south of town is good too. The Ranch House is a typical, good steakhouse.

In Bemidji, CatTails by the NW landing is good, along with burgers at Slims or Corner. Of course, there's the normal chains (AppleBees, Green Mill, Ground Round). Brigids Crossing is a neat little bar.

I have been to the Northern Lights Friday night buffet as recently as 3 weeks ago, Friday night is steak night, and well worth the price of admission, couple that with the jumbo shrimp and we have ourselves a WINNER!!!!!!!!

I haven't tried it yet, but I have heard that Boulders is very tasty as well, hard to drive past the casino and go on into Walker when I don't have too though.

Peppers is gone. The Wharf is still there. Lucky Moose is good. But do not overlook the Fireside Supper Club east of the casino about 4 miles on the south side of the road. Zona's, Bensons and Village Square are all still good. A very good sandwich can be had at the Walker Bay Coffee Co. which is located a couple of doors away from Lundrigans.

Wonder if they have changed cooks at the casino buffet or if it is only certain nights that are good because I have been very disappointed the two times I ate there...

There is a nice German restaurant a little outside of Walker on the road toward Park Rapids - can't think of the name of it off-hand but you can't miss it on the right hand side of the road.

Liked Arthur Bryants but heard that it got torn down - is that true?

Daze Off

Arthers was torn down, much to my disappointment. I looked forward to a cold one on their deck after the long drive up.

Have heard good reports on the german place too.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
