Good Restaurant? Lodging?

10 posts in this topic

Going to Mille Lacs with some business colleagues. Looking for a decent restaurant one night. Where is the best place to eat close to Garrison? Sitting at a good bar with a burger is normally my style, but I need to step it up a bit with this group. Also, looking at staying at Hardwoods. People been satisfied there? Other suggestions if they are booked? Thanks.

I had a good experience at Garrison Inn, clean rooms, continental breakfast etc. It is behind MacDonalds in Garrison. I don't recommend Mickey D's for your clients. grin.gif

Carlsona's on the North end. Might be a little far, but it is some fine dining. From seafood to ribs to steak they do it all pretty darn fine.

I agree with Carlsona. Good food, nice setting.

I think the really good food, in and around Garrison, is few and far between. It's probably why I don't eat out as much as I used to. Most people like Carlsona, but I've never been impressed. It's okay and decent in relation to a lot of the other restaurants, but nothing to write home about.

I think the restaurant at Ruttger's on Bay Lake (Ruby's?) is probably the best place to impress in the area. Not to mention, it's just as close, if not closer, than Carlsona to Garrison. If you go, I would call to make reservations.

Depending on if you catch kitchen open..Vet's Club at south end of lake (by the DQ)..has pretty good eats....Jeff and gang all pour a fair drink too. And us gray beards are all too dang old to fight..so ya got a friendly atmosphere.... it's open to public btw..don't have to be a Vet.

I gave up on the Blue Goose...except for an occasional beer at the bar...

twice in a row..the food was basically inedible..burned..stale.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
