Just doing a little pre-planning for our trip up next year and was wondering what recommendations might be made for places to eat in Ft. Frances. We are staying at Birch Point from a Sat. through Fri and have decided to break our week up with a mid-week trip back into Ft. Frances for dinner one night.

Our thought was to eat on the Canadian side so that we do not have to try getting through Customs both ways just to eat dinner.

Searched the internet but have only found a couple of places, Thought maybe some local information might prove helpful.

Thanks and Bon Appetit!

Our group decided to try eating in FT. Francis this year for one meal. After driving around looking for a place I did the un-manly thing and asked a local walking on the sidewalk where was the best place in town to eat. They reccommended "the kettles". Just around the corner from the bridge. It was very delicious. Nothing fancy but home cooked style and reasonable. Would do it again.

Google the Ft. Frances Chamber of Commerce to find more restaurants. As far as recommendations The La Place Rendez-Vous is on the lake between town and the reservation and La Flambee International Cuisine is downtown. I've eaten at both and both are good. The best meal I've ever eaten anywhere was at the second one.

My favorite on either side of the bridge. A mite pricey but everything (except the ribs) is great. In the Fall, they start their 5-course special which I have had twice and it was awesome.

Everything is made from scratch so leave plenty of time to relax while your meal is being prepared. They also have a noon buffet - small selection but cheap and also very good.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
