Places To Eat On Ottertail?

Recommended Posts

jjohnson5150

I was wondering if anyone can refer us to a decent place to eat right on Ottertail. We have an anniversary on July 2nd and would like a decent place to eat at while we are at our cabin in Ashby. The past few years we have gone to Ten Mile Resort, which is very good, but we just want some different scenery.

As far as eateries on the water, you are probably limited to Zorbaz and Greystone.

While I love Zorbaz chow, I am not sure if you want to go to a pizza/taco joint for an anniversery.

Greystone is right up the road, and now has a boat that features a dinner cruise on the lake which might be just what you are looking for. They have a double decker boat with lav and food facilities.

If you want something slightly off the lake, Elmers Texas Barbecue on hwy 78 is good, as is Thumper Pond in Ottertail city.

Personally, my wife and I go to the Otter Supper Club in Ottertail city for our anniversery every year. Excellent food and friendly atmosphere.

We like Ten Mile too - mmmmm, blue cheese dresing grin.gif

Wow...Greystone has a dinner boat now?!?! That must be something new just this year. That sounds pretty neat. May have to check that out this year when we're up there. I assume they have some sort of bar on there too? tongue.gif

For an anniversary Stubs is a must, ten times better food quality then Ten Mile and Greystone, romantic atmosphere and a dove bar for desert.

Stubs...That is in Battle Lake right? Is it a fancy place, or can you go dressed pretty casual...shorts/shirt/ballcap?

Stubs, any attire is fine within reason. All their steaks are awesome, big fan of prime rib and new york.

Stella's in Battle Lake (next to the hardware store) has really good food and is a nice place to eat. I recently went there and was impressed.

Thumper Pond and Otter Supper Club are the best place for an anniversary dinner. Thumper Pond is more formal with table cloths and isn't connected to a bar. Thumper does have a lot of wedding on Saturdays though. But the food at both places is very good. I've even believe that the chef at the Otter is married to the gal who is the chef at Thumper. Also for those who like to save a little money, look in the Midweek for the ad for the Otter. The radio stations from Fergus Falls and Perham have certificates, but the best time to call for them is Friday morning. I just picked up two $25 certificates for just $12.50 each. Most of the time they are $17.50.

Three best would be Stubs, Thumper Pond, or the Otter. The Fireside in Detroit Lakes is a good option if you don't mind a bit of a drive.

No way Stub's is 10 times better than Greystone. Twice the price of Greystone yes! Joe Z.

Alright, Stub's is only 7 times better than Greystone, but 20 times better to take your wife for anniversary dinner. grin.gif

Just got back from 5 days in Battle Lake. Stubs was excellent as usual. I had walleye which was cooked wonderfully, We also had steaks in our party, and the pork chop. Everyone was happy!

Then the next night we went to Stella's. It was packed, but considering how busy they were, the service was good and we didn't have to wait an inordinate amount of time, of course we immediately ordered appetizers. We had a full order of nachos, which were some of the best nachos I've ever had (chicken, black beans, tomatoes, cheese, etc. roasted in the oven, very tasty!!) but a full order is two large plates (enough for 4 people easily) and we were almost full just from eating that. We didn't try any of the sandwiches, but the wood oven pizzas were great as well! I think they're going to be very successful.

Just a little note on where to eat in ottertail... there are many great places to eat, but the best places are those where you wouldn't think to look... for your money, grandmas, they serve breakfast all day long, on the east side of main street in ottertail, it's a no brainer... you just need to take a drive around the lake and you will find everything that you are looking for... and if you drive to perham, the station is the best food around... just drive around and you can find great places to eat... if you see a little place outside of any city, just try it... some of the best laid plans are those that are never planned... later the swcrappie slayer...

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Really enjoyed your video.  Thanks for sharing!

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.
    • delcecchi
      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
