Rented a 10 hole 6 bunk ice fishing house #21. Credit card machine didn't work at resort, paid cash. Fished 8am - 4pm. Left 4 hours early. Zero fish. Tried everything to get a fish. Dead minnows in holes and floor. Three tier bunks. Rickety table. A guy drove us out and told us not to shut off heat since... More

Stopped at twin pines a few times this year for dinner, good food and value. Always a special, usually including a decent salad bar. Separate bar dining area and a casual dining room also. Right across highway from the lake...sit outside if it's not winter!

We love the omelet's at Twin Pines. The Mexican is my favorite. My husband loves the Everything. I have also had the Seafood, which is delicious. The portions come on a platter. There is always a breakfast special on the board. Breakfast is so filling you can share it or loosen your belt because you want need to eat lunch.... More

This is my favorite menu item. I seem to always order it when I stop for breakfast. To enhance the taste I usually ask them to cook the hash before they put in in the omelet. I like the "crunch"! Bottomless coffee adds to the experience!

Linda, the owner, was so friendly she made us feel right at home as did the locals. We both had the walleye for dinner and... More

I can't even begin to describe how awesome this place is. Every summer, a group of us take a 4 wheeling trip up to the area. 1st year, we ended up actually camping out at a lot a couple miles down... But we would come here every morning for breakfast and dinner! With no running water at the campsite, they... More

If one is in central Minnesota and wants to experience “Minnesota Nice” then Twin Pines Resort in Garrison on Lake Mille Lacs is a must stay. The owners, Linda and Bill, make you feel like you are a dear friend the moment you walk in. My wife and I have stayed in the cabins several times. They have always been... More

Had lunch here on Saturday, September 28th. The service was very good, but I thought the food was rather bland. I didn't care for the bread used for the burger bun. Though, the prices are good and it is a cute place to eat. Great views of Lake Mille Lacs.
