We like to have group of friends together at Ernie's - we always get good food and good service. For our age though, their servings are a bit too large and price matches that! The view and location are desirable and we would recommend going by boat in the summer!

We stopped at Ernie's for lunch . Our group was immediately seated on the outside patio. They have a nice variety of items on their menu. Our server was attentive and the service was great. We had walleye fingers ( delicious) kids chicken and fish baskets ( good) bbq pork sandwich ( good) coconut shrimp salad ( very good ).... More

Anyone who goes to Ernies... winter, spring, summer or fall will enjoy the atmosphere, environment and menu. They have a great menu that includes wild rice risotto to die for and Kraft macaroni and cheese for those picky little eaters! They have an awesome dining area and an even more spectacular dining deck and outdoor tiki bar that includes lined... More

When I went to Ernies I just had drinks outside. They had live music outside which was very nice and a very laid back experience.

Food was very good. Was a bit over priced. Had a nice window booth, looking out to the lake. Waitress could have been a little friendlier.

2 for 1's!! Yes that is right! Loud, frozen pizza late, Jumbo Jenga, dancing, chaos!! Hangovers for most! If it is nice outside you can sit on the deck or out by the lake for a little quiet .

Ernie's has a wonderful location on Gull Lake. As a guest you can arrive both by car and by water. Weather permitting, there a nice outdoor seating area. The menu is classical American choices. I had one of their burgers which was good and as I expected from a venue like this. You go to Ernie's to get a relaxed... More

We live on Gull Lake so this is convenient when you are out boating. I like sitting outside best....inside is a bit dated and confining. It's nice they have live music often.

We love going to Ernie's! A great, welcoming environment! Good food, and a great variety of beverages. An added bonus of looking out at Gull Lake while you're there. We've becoming regulars during the summer time! I would highly recommend!
