Has anyone eaten at The Boulders north of Walker?

Recommended Posts

Commanche Jim

We'll be heading up to Cass in August and I was wondering if it was worth the trip to the Boulders.....

Also, any other recommendations for dinner in the Walker area?

Been to the mexican place and the pizza place down from Reeds.....How's the steakhouse across from Northern Lights or the Ranch House or The Wharf? It's been 20 years since I've been to the Ranch House.

Any help would be appreciated.

Tried it last year and it was very good. A little upscale and somewhat pricey but worth it. Ranch house still good as well as Benson's and Zona Rosa's. Charley's is good also. The Wharf is gone. Enjoy your meal and good luck fishing.

Charlies Boat House along side his normal restaurant is great outdoor dining. Saturday night crab leg feeds, great ribs, lobster and artichoke dip, etc.

Great food in a great setting!

If you make it to Longville, the wife and I really enjoy visiting Patrick's each year. Real nice dinner and/or lunch. The salad bar is always great along with the main course. We especially like the Walleye dinner.

We try to save room for ice cream at Frosty's, also in Longville.

Enjoy

I've been told by a few people that the buffet, Dancing Fire(?), at Northern Lights is very good. Boulders is "northern MN upscale", a little pricey, but good and the Smiling Moose, the new place south of town is good too. The Ranch House is a typical, good steakhouse.

In Bemidji, CatTails by the NW landing is good, along with burgers at Slims or Corner. Of course, there's the normal chains (AppleBees, Green Mill, Ground Round). Brigids Crossing is a neat little bar.

I have been to the Northern Lights Friday night buffet as recently as 3 weeks ago, Friday night is steak night, and well worth the price of admission, couple that with the jumbo shrimp and we have ourselves a WINNER!!!!!!!!

I haven't tried it yet, but I have heard that Boulders is very tasty as well, hard to drive past the casino and go on into Walker when I don't have too though.

Peppers is gone. The Wharf is still there. Lucky Moose is good. But do not overlook the Fireside Supper Club east of the casino about 4 miles on the south side of the road. Zona's, Bensons and Village Square are all still good. A very good sandwich can be had at the Walker Bay Coffee Co. which is located a couple of doors away from Lundrigans.

Wonder if they have changed cooks at the casino buffet or if it is only certain nights that are good because I have been very disappointed the two times I ate there...

There is a nice German restaurant a little outside of Walker on the road toward Park Rapids - can't think of the name of it off-hand but you can't miss it on the right hand side of the road.

Liked Arthur Bryants but heard that it got torn down - is that true?

Arthers was torn down, much to my disappointment. I looked forward to a cold one on their deck after the long drive up.

Have heard good reports on the german place too.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.
