Hard to get there, but worth the trip.

I have been to Winjum's twice. The service was very good and very friendly. Actually, the service gave me the impression they were having fun working at Winjums and having fun with the customers. It was really "cool." The food wasn't too bad either. I was there for the fish fry and it was good.

Great food at a good price. Had their ribs and they literally fell off the bone. The others in my party had the beer batter fish. The piece was so large they couldn't eat it all. Beautiful view of Roberds lake.

They have a great menu, great service, and AWESOME prime rib. Along with that they have a perfect view of the lake. You can drive bike snowmobile or boat there. Bud and Mirna are the owners and they will not disappoint you.

They have done a nice job of nightly specials and a well balanced menu. Have tried several menu items and specials and have generally been happy with all. Prices are moderate especially for being on the lake.

My daughter and I were looking for some place to eat near Faribault. Winjum's is an easy 6-7 minute northwest of Faribault. The restaurant, which is more of a bar area and dining area with an outside patio was easy to find following signage and knowing it is on the west side of Roberd's Lake. Access is from Echo Ave....

I enjoy Winjum's for a lot. They have daily specials and something for everyone. There is not a lot of seating but the is also part of the charm. It is nice to eat good food and look out at the lake or just relax at one of the outdoor tales with a drink.

I do not get the opportunity to eat here very often but the food is always great. I have enjoyed their fish and burgers. Worth the drive.

Went there for the first time last Friday night. The homemade potaoe chips were worth the drive alone. But the fish fry was very good. We tried all four types the deep fried was my favorite, pan fried , scampi then baked in that order. We started with the baked and scampi the piece was very large but do able.... More
