Good Food?

9 posts in this topic

Off the subject of fishing a little...but I'm on my way up to Cass Lake to see a football game tonight. I'll be coming from the Princeton area and I am wondering if there are any good places to eat up in that area between Brainerd and Cass Lake. Not the fastfood type, but a good home-cooked meal, beverage, friendly people, type place.

Last year I posted a similar message and the outdoorsmen of the Grand Rapids area came through. I'm hoping some of you who frequent the woods and waters of Walker and Cass Lake can help me out too! grin.gif Thanks!

For the best pizza in the state, I think it's called Village Square in Walker. It's the place that has an ice cream shop with it.

I like Charlie's Up North in Walker on the corner of 200 and 371 (kitty corner from the casino on the sw corner). Menu starts with good burgers and sandwiches and goes up from there. All the dinners are excellent, but the duck is truly out of sight. Cold beer, reasonable wine selection and plenty of other beveredge choices if you aren't so inclined. What place in Grand Rapids did you like? I get over there a couple times a year and want to be sure I'm not missing someathing.

Not to mention homemade giant pop-overs.... mmmm

Charlies is also very good! I've had burgers, sandwiches and his homemade ribs... mmmmm

Also Zona Rosa is also decent if you want Mexican...

MJ's just west of Cass Lake has some terrific burgers and if you're looking for a cold beer, they have those too! grin.gif

Good Luck!

Thanks guys. Just what I was looking for.

Otter- We ended up going to the Forest Lake Inn for dinner. Great prime rib...at least the night we ordered it. I would go there again.

Thanks 89 Bronco. I've eaten at Forest Lake many times. Also in Grand Rapids, if you're in the mood for thin crust pizza, broasted chicken or Italian food, Sammy's is also excellent. If you're in the mood for prime rib again, Charlie's Up North in Walker did an excellent job every time I had it.

Sammy's in Hibbing is one of my favorite places. They do make good pizza, so I'm sure the GR one would be good too. Thanks again guys. I'm on my way...It's either the Ranch House or Charlie's. They look like they're along the way.

Bronco,

Love the quote from Deadly Teddly. Another of his favorites is, "You can't grill it...till you kill it! Thought I would put a plug in for a few of my favorite eateries. We hit the Pike Hole on Cass Lake every year, great waffle cut fries, mushroom swiss burgers and the famous Pike Holer, a half pound monster loaded with peppery bacon, cheese and the works. We also like to hit Zona Rosa in Walker when we venture out there to hit the Northern Lights casino. My wife plays the one armed bandits (or should I say, they play her) and I hit the Texas Hold Em tables. Keep on rockin my man....Zee Wango Zee Tango! Windy

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
