Margarita Mulligans on Leech is now the Beachfire Grill

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.

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
