We dine with friends at Ernie's often, especially in summer. The ambiance is wonderful, especially the view of the lake. We have never been disappointed with the service (always perfect), the food (wide menu selections, tasty sandwiches, full service bar) and the gracious welcome we always receive.

This is an older place overlooking Gull Lake. The view is nice and you can watch the boat action in the summer and snowmobile and ice fishing action in the winter. The food is average in comparison with all of the other eating places in the area. In consideration of the food quality, the prices are a bit high for... More

Just had dinner at Ernie's again last night. Good food. Great specials. Great service. Not as scenic in the winter as the beautiful summer lake view and deck dining but a consistently good place to go!

We chose Ernie's because it was near the resort that we had just checked into. This was our first "up north" resort experience in the wintertime, and we were travel-weary and looking for someplace casual but quality. We hit the jackpot. The place was crowded, but our server was quick and friendly. I had the lobster bisque - it was... More

Chris the Bartender was very friendly and my husband enjoyed talking to him about sports as we watched the Gophers win! We enjoyed a good buffalo shrimp appetizer served with excellent homemade blue cheese dressing. Also shared a delicious French dip sandwich served with crispy salty homemade potato chips-- a nice surprise. They have a great setting on the lake... More

Great appetizer. The weather prevented us from sitting outside. The view of the lake is wonderful. Food was OK. Service was fast and friendly. We will put Ernie's into our vacation rotation.

Pretty spot on the lake. Food was good. May have been a better experience had the weather been nice.
