Margarita Mulligans on Leech is now the Beachfire Grill

3 posts in this topic

Same great building, with the same great view.

WALKER, MN__ History has come to life at Trapper’s Landing Lodge on Leech Lake. The historic log building recently known as Margarita Mulligan’s Restaurant is being reopened to the public May 10 as the Beachfire Bar & Grille.

The building, the only remaining original structure of the former Merit Lodge was built in 1921 as one of the first resorts on the lake. Today, under the management of Trapper’s Landing Lodge, the restaurant will feature upscale casual dining in a relaxed lakeside environment.

Executive Chef Craig Current will feature a menu of homemade cuisine including fish, steaks, pasta, signature dishes and a sandwich lunch menu. The restaurant will be open from May 10 to mid-June, Thursdays through Sundays, with a brunch-only menu served on Sunday. From mid-June through mid-August they will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. They will be open for seasonal hours into the autumn.

As part of Trapper’s Landing Lodge, the restaurant serves both resort guests and the public. Patrons may boat in and tie up at the dock and boat-side “to go” orders will soon be available. There is also an outdoor dining patio overlooking the lake and outdoor live entertainment will be featured. Saturday nights the bar & grille will host karaoke.

Trapper’s Landing Lodge is owned and operated by Odyssey Development of Duluth, MN and offers fractional townhouse ownership and resort vacation rentals. The resort is located on the south shore of Leech Lake, just nine miles east of the junction of Hwy. 200 and 371. For more information, please contact Trapper’s Landing Lodge at 218-836-2455 or visit www.trapperslandinglodge.com

Does it have the same dock system as before? There are some of us from Marinemax marina that have cruisers who occasionally like to come over for a bite to eat and a cocktail, but the dock isn't real condusive to a cruiser. So just wondering if it is the same one.

Puddleduck, we have made some minor improvements to the dock along with lowering to water level. There will be more bumbers along the rails as well as cleats.

We plan on fully replacing it for next year.

Should it not suffice when you arrive, feel free to go in the marina and take an availble spot. We can accomodate up to a 36 footer, at least that was the biggest I saw in there last year.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.
