Splashing Rock Restaurant and Bar

Recommended Posts

Scott M

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.

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

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

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Not as easy to find bullheads in the chain as it was in the 80s-90s.... but you will still get a few here and there. The cats took care of most of the bullies over the yrs😉
