What are you looking for as far as food? Tjuan's obviously is Mexican, Peppercorn is finer dining than GM, GR, Applebees. There are a number of bars that serve food such as 209 (awesome burgers) Keg n Cork, Squirrels 71 bar (8miles north of town) but great food with specials like fish and prime rib. here's a few for ya.

for the drinks, I'd recommend keg n Cork. For the meal and the drinks together, Corner Bar (in Nymore) was a great place to go back in my college days.

Todd,

I would have to second TJuans for Mexican, great chips, 3 kinds of salsa, good margaritas (especially at happy hour prices) really good food at good prices, great rice! Peppercorn will cost you a few sheckles but well worth it, try a spicy bloody mary, yum! I would heartily recommend their Northern Spiced Steak with a side order of diver scallops wrapped in spiced bacon, as Borat says...VERY NICE! Tutto Bene is Italian, great atmosphere, very upscale, prices are really good for what you see, food is just so-so for me, not seasoned enough for good Italian but I am from Chicago which is the Italian food capitol of the US (ok maybe tied with New York) but I have heard that Minnesota folks like their food spiced very mild and not too wild. Green Mill is ok food, decent prices and a great view, sit outside by the lake if weather permits. Ground Round is good with fair pricing. Note: If you go to TJuans be sure to have good directions, kind of off the beaten path. Good Eating!

Anyone been to the "Hungry Bear" yet? I've heard both good and bad.

Hungry Bear is very expensive for the quality of food you get. It is the same exact food you would get at the Marketplace Deli, but at like twice the price.

I have heard the same over priced and not so great taste, from as source reliable to me that I passed on going there the other day.

Who knows Hungry Bear may improve after the newness wears off and community feed back.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
