Where to Eat

Explore the abundant choices when it comes to what to eat as well as where to eat in the Brainerd Lakes Area, a Minnesota vacation destination. Let’s talk food first – savor foods from small-town diners, award-winning restaurants, one-of-a-kind finds. Relish traditional Minnesota fare, such as pan-fried walleye or a black Angus burger. Explore signature dishes, such as filet mignon or home smoked ribs. And don’t overlook the many notable side dishes and desserts, whether it is gouda au gratin potatoes and sweet potato fries or crème brulee and strawberry cheesecake. Now, where do you eat? Choose to sit indoors or outdoors; overlook a lake, a golf course, or a forest; enjoy an intimate dinner for two or gather with extended family at a table for 12.
