We have been here twice. The first time was a fantastic time and the second time was just okay. Toucan's is just like a small town bar and grill with good service, average food and nice view of the lake. Both times there were a couple individuals at the bar that were a little loud. The launch service the first... More

The owners are rude people! They have a horrible attitude and don't care about their customers. We went out on the fishing launch. The launch captain didn't care that we weren't catching any fish. He moved fishing spots one time during the entire 4 hour trip. All we caught were a few finger sized walleyes. He didn't care. The restaurant... More

Recently visited the wharf. Great setting with a beautiful view of Mille Lacs Lake. Great atmosphere. Had great food and even better service!! Jenny was amazing! To bad more places around the lake don't have staff like her. I will definitely be back!

Booked a 4 hr charter fishing and came back empty handed. There was 20 of us and we tried 3 spots not very far from the place. Once we docked, the captain & bait boy took off in their trucks. In it for the quick bucks. Worst charter fishing experience ever.

This resort is a really great place to ice fish in winter or boat in the summer. Everything you need for the day or for an extended stay. We headed out on their huge launch with our family, loved it. The restaurant was a favorite spot but the sunsets are also the best.

A group of us went fishing on one of the Fishermen's Wharf boat launches - 2nd year in a row. The captain and assistant are very nice and obviously experienced. My one recommendation to anyone taking one of these excursions is to use the bathroom BEFORE getting on the boat. The makeshift bathroom without going into detail, is absolutely disgusting.... More

Let me start with the bar.Great food, excellent service and great specials. The staff are great and the fishing staff are awesome. Our launch captain Dale put us on fish and kept us entertained. Several members of our group commented that they wanted to comeback on the same launch with the same captain. Later that night Dale was taking care... More
