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

I like the Blue Goose in Garisson.

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.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
