headwaters on main street in ortonville has ok burgers it all depends on whos working

milbank as the lantern inn i am not sure on the food it has been a while since i have been there.also there is a pretty new sports bar just as you come into town on hwy12. the 2 times i ate there the food was good only ate burgers

if you want to drive a little ways on the sd side of the lake there are 2 supper clubs.shady beach and sodak.sodak is the bettter of the 2 by far and my favorite friday night all you can eat shrimp and on sundays all you can eat ribs.not a big salad bar but the portions are huge.the matador has gone down hill in the last couple of years.

you could always drive to odessa club 7&75 always seems to have good food.but you know how it is you can always get a bad meal every now and agian no matter where you go. good luck

Milbank has decent places. Check out RJ's BBQ in Milbank, it's a neat place and the food is to die for. I know people that drive over an hour on a weekly basis to get some of their good BBQ. Get there early, when the food is gone, they don't make any more for that night!! It's north of Milbank about a mile on Hwy 15.

Shennanigan's opened up this past year and is a great spot to watch sports in a comfortable setting.

The lantern has good food, but is overrated. I would recommend something on the lake as well, the supper clubs are always a good bet.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
