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.
