Food Scene

This restaurant and bar is walking distance from your stay! The staff is friendly and the service is unique. Guests are typically expected to go up to the bar to get a drink and if no one approaches you to take your food order you need to go find a staff member and tell them you would like to order. It is located right on the lake and the view is fantastic! They also have a Lakeside Tiki bar that is sometimes open. You can access this restaurant and bar by boat, by car, or a short walk!

This place has a small town feel, open all year, with an inside fireplace and you can still order outside under the canopy and a car hop will serve you! As a side note: the car hops really appreciate your tips. You can order online for a curbside delivery also. The food is good and you can ask for extra seasoning on your french fries! If you go inside they have a small chalk board on the left side of the counter with the Manager's Special written on it each day and inside by the fireplace they have additional 'salt shakers' with their special seasoning for your own application on your french fries. Also check out the Family sized fries. They serve a lot of fries for a reasonable price. (7.5 miles)

This is located at the local casino in Hinckley, MN. We really enjoyed the food at the buffet when the buffet was open. Their all you can eat crab legs, seafood macaroni and cheese, clam chowder soup, and ice cream are my families favorites. There was a large variety of food to choose from and the service was good too. Check ahead to see if they have opened the buffet.

Their food is good here. From our experience when you walk in the door all eyes are on you and they have big smiles on their faces (to see if the locals know you) and once they realize they don't know you their smiles fade. The bar is visible from all restaurant tables. This is a favorite for locals. (6.8 miles)

Previously Vanelli's Landing and years ago it was Muffies. This restaurant and bar is located on the South West end of our lake, Pokegama Lake, and is fun to go by boat and is also accessible by car. They have good food in an old building with some updates right on the lake. They also have a new outdoor bar with yard games and sometimes feature live bands. My family and everyone I talk to really enjoys their Friday evening all you can eat fish fry! It is very good! The fish is very good! Please note: as of Spring 2022 they only serve one piece of additional fish at a time and have a 4% charge to pay with a credit card. (5.0 miles)

Arts & Culture

Also known as Northwest Company Post. This will be an amazing educational experience. A local farmer was plowing his field when he noticed wood posts under the soil in the shape of a building. This was the location of the Northwest Company Fur Post from many years ago. The fur traders would canoe up and down the river to the fur post to trade their furs. Today people are dressed up in character and live on site all summer long. I highly recommend experiencing this during your stay. (8.1 miles)

Outdoor Places

This is a beautiful State Forest located just (19.9 miles). As a fun side note; my Great Grandparents owned a farm very close to this State Forest. They used horse and wagon to collect sap from Maple trees on their property and boiled it down on an open fire in a large caldron.
