Splashing Rock Restaurant and Bar

Recommended Posts

As a now former employee, I can go on record, without bias grin.gif, and say that you can not go wrong with Splashing Rock Restaurant in Castle Danger. The people serving you and cooking for you go the extra mile. The food alone is first rate, but combined with the atmosphere and excellent wait staff that put your needs first, its no wonder the restaurant continues to earn awards and accolades. You will be in the right hands with people that like coming to work. The atmosphere is friendly and you will see smiles on everyone’s face.

For me to thank everyone that I worked with would be a long list, so I will stick with the FMers by telling you a little about them.

Cheffrey. I only got to meet him a couple times, but boy does he grease the skids and makes thing efficient. Really knows his craft inside and out, and from what I hear is a fun guy to drop a line with. Hopefully I will get a chance to do some fishing with him…Burntside Bash perhaps? I may be emailing for some recipes…

RodnGun. One guest put it this way: this guy wakes up every morning and P’s excellence. Just a fun guy to be around. Best impressions by far. Always fun to work with. You will not have a disappointing or unentertaining night when he’s tending bar. Watch out when he shuts down the bar until someone from the kitchen brings him a sugar cookie. A sugar cookie mon! (inside joke)

I’lltakewhatIcanget. Super friendly and helpful. Always gets you what you need. Be sure to visit him at Great Lakes Fly company. Passionate about all fishing and especially fly fishing. Heck, I bought a steelie rod and reel from him. Can’t wait to meet up with him and the rest of the gang either this fall or spring to chase a few.

Quickstrike. Has lots of great stories to share about life and fishing. Many times it seems the two intertwine. He’s flyfished since he was a kid and knows the Arrowhead region like the back of his hand. Another friendly and helpful staff member, enough so that I also bought a fly rod form him! Looking forward to some fall and spring adventures with him and the rest. Let’s see you snag a diver on a roll cast while duck hunting this fall, that’s gotta be worth a few points.

Shiner2367. Probably the guy I owe a debt of gratitude to. Set me up with a nice job that has helped me buy a few toys (Fred Bear tricked out bow, 2 fly rods, etc, etc.) and still save some money for my better half and school. Was super accommodating in scheduling around my day job and was more than truthful than describing the job and pay, when many others in this line of work are not. Great guy in and out of the job. I hope we’ll stay in touch for a few hunting and fishing adventures.

This goes for everyone on here: Life’s too short to not treasure every friend you can meet, and in particular, you can never have too many hunting and fishing friends. I met some pretty good guys in just over 3 months work.

So to wrap things up, go to Splashing Rock restaurant, have a cocktail and enjoy a chat with one of the bartenders, and do yourself a favor by grabbing a meal with friends or family at the restaurant. Ask for Tom or Nate and let the managers know that you had a great time. I know I’ll be back!

Glad to have your endorsement stf. Nice photos by the way...I think your selection needs to be restocked. Last time I worked (last Wed), there were a few blank spots on the walls.

More images coming. Only blank spot on the wall I know of is the wolf series that recently sold, and I'm replacing that this weekend. Any other holes I should know about, or you just pulllin' on my leg like Cheffrey did awhile back? grin.gif

No prob, Steve. You won't see them unless you go into the ladies room, where they're selling so fast they can't keep them up on the walls. grin.gif

And if you believe that one, I've got some great building sites on black spruce bog acreage up the Echo Trail to sell you. smirk.gif

Thanks Da Chise and everyone else, I suppose this is a good reminder that I need to call Bo and write the menu for the game dinner. Just when you think the season is almost over. smile.gif

Hope to see you all there!

Salmon wontons for a ap and the cedar plank salmon for a meal or the steaks are great. Thats at Grand Superior just before Gooseberry.

If you hit Larsmont wich is just before 2 Harbors have the same ap and try one of the brick oven flat breads.

Oh and of course wash it down with some South Shore Nut Brown or Stout. MMMMM! tongue.gif

      Looks like a cougar to me.
    • ANYFISH2
      Interesting pic!!   Could be the pic but looks to dark and fur seems to "fluffy" for a cougar?   My first thought was a bear, neck seems to long and the color change on lower jaw says no.   I am going to go with a wolf.   Thanks for sharing.

      way to big to be a bobcat I was thinking.

      I was thinking the same or a Bob cat.

      Thanks to the expert advice from Mr EyeGuy 54 (Royce) I was able to find myself a super nice spot of living green cabbage weeds. Not 5 minutes into my first pass I had a nice 19” pike. Over about a half hour I ended with 2 nice eater northerns and threw back two smaller ones and released 3 largemouth. Trolling cranks on the weedlines on braid was the ticket. It was sure windy but it was barely doable. Went back out this evening and got a 21” pike and lost probably 6 due to boat control issues in the wind. And a few more bass and another on a spinner bait. Hopefully can get a few more casts in Saturday or Sunday but we’ll see what the weather does. If you can get out take advantage of it. But please wear your life preserver and be smart water temps are about 45 degrees and will continue to drop fast now. It doesn’t lake long for things to go south quick. All in all a good season lots of great memories and great fish boated. So long open water 2018 and welcome ice season 18-19!
