Amazing food and service

Took my mom out to dinner...she wanted something a little 'fancy' as she put it. Everything was top notch. I had a beet and goat cheese salad and the best walleye dinner. Service was perfect. Prices are a little higher than many area restaurants, but in this case, you get what you pay for.

My wife and I drove 60 miles to try Prairie Bay Grill for lunch because we had heard good reports about their food. We were totally satisfied with every aspect of this very well run restaurant. It has a good location with plenty of parking. We were greeted and seated immediately. Once seated in a comfortable windowed booth, our drink... More

From the outset, I must caution you to "make a reservation", because even though it was 5 p.m. in a mostly empty restaurant, the staff hemmed and hawed over what to do with people who hadn't made a reservation. The restaurant has great northwoods atmosphere and architecture with big open wood beams and lovely stone fireplaces complete with a roaring... More

Keeping in mind that the restaurant is located in northern minnesota. The Walleye is fresh and tender, Lobster bisque is a slightly more adventurous choice. Meatloaf served family style with a mushroom gravy felt like home. Pork tenderloin was anything but tender (dipping in the bisque helped). Overall the food is good, slightly overpriced for the area, service is hit... More

Absolutely loved the Bruschetta!!! Other foods are hit and miss. Third visit and it was good. Came with friends visiting from Denver and Thursday night, they have half off wine.

This place is somewhat hidden behind a strip mall but well worth finding. They locally source much of their food; the beef we had simply melted in the mouth. Food is beautifully presented with drizzled balsamic vinegar, olive oil and herb sprigs. Our server was very attentive but it took a long time to get our food, although the menu... More

Went for lunch with our 2 kids. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. We had the MN fish sandwich, cobb salad, pepperoni & sausage pizza and kids had asian noodles. All were very good. Definitely returning.

Stopped in after a trying day and really enjoyed the soup of the day (butternut squash) and the roasted beet salad. Delicious!! So good I bragged it up to my sister and we came back to try the pizza with fig and grapes after a recommendation from an acquaintance. The pizza, blackened ahi tuna salad and an attentive bartender made... More
