Restaurant in Deer River...

5 posts in this topic

How is food at the big restaurant on the south side of Hwy 2 in Deer River? It was awful when it was Shay's, but it looks like there are new owners. Is it the same people who owned the River City Diner across the street? Anyone know why River City was torn down? Food at River City was good for a while and then seemed to hit the skids.

Haven't ate at the new place yet. Shay's did get really bad as time went on. Not sure about the owners. They didn't tear down River Town diner. It was moved across the street and turned into a some kind of shop... Thats what I heard anyways.

Shay's is now Shelly's, new owner's and pretty good food. The River Town Diner was moved across the street and is now the new Deer River Service garage. I think it's Woodland Bank going in where the Diner used to be. For awesome pizza, go north on Hwy 6 about 2 miles north of town and stop in at Blueberry Bowl.

Before we moved up here, the place that became Shay's was owned by a young gal who made the best hot beef sandwiches that I ever ate. She apparently couldn't make a go of it, because it became Shay's. That burned down shortly after they took possession (I would not sell fire insurance to restaurants in northern Minnestota). The food was never good and got worse with the passage of time. We shifted patronage to River City Diner, which started good and then declined, and is now apparently is now a thing of the past. Speaking of ancient history, if anyone remembers Roy and Dot's in Cohasset, and is interested, I will make a post about that one.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
