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.

      Are you saying people with better reports are being dishonest?

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.
