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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
