Breakfast Buffet is so so

The buffet is adequate but nothing to go out of your way to get. The steam table items like eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage are not as hot as they should be served. The head-liner would have to be the waffles that you prepare to order which are hot, tasty and if you use enough syrup, butter... read more

Lovely view of the lake, perhaps the best in the area. Food was good for a lunch, but seemed grossly understaffed. Probably a timing matter; find a less busy moment for success

We were given recommendation by a shop worker is Nisswa, she knows what she is talking about! Glad we drove the 1 1/2 from our hotel, worth the... More

Outside seating on patio with view of Leech Lake was nice. Wine selection was average. Walleye cakes and wings were good.Main courses were average.Very few gluten free choices. Too expensive for food and service.

I'm giving this a 4 star for the view/ location. Otherwise -food tastes average, service is slow, prices are higher than they should be. But I'll still stop here EVERY time I'm in Walker for the relaxed experience of sitting on their patio, gazing at the lake, while drinking a glass of wine. The gas fire pit in the evenings... More

I loved the hotel bug was extremely disappointed in the 502 restaurants. I had the prime rib listed as a house specialty . It was extremely fatty and very small. The roasted root vegetables were mushy and the wild rice side was horrible. The rice wasn't cooked and it was hard rice!!! I am a small eater and the portions... More

We visit Walker as part of our yearly trip to our cabin. Our family, Mom, Dad, a 16 year old boy and 12 year old daughter had lunch here midweek. First, sitting on the deck here to enjoy your lunch is what makes this place. It is roomy, views are wonderful, just enough sun. Service is always good. The food... More

The main reason for stopping here was the great view offered by the patio. Nice atmosphere. Our service was quick and friendly and the lunch menu offered plenty of choices. As for the flavor of the food, it was ordinary and nothing stood out as an amazing meal. We tried the turkey focaccia and Greek flatbread and it was good... More

Great service, view and experience! Roasted vegetables were very good, along with the Walleye. The meal was served with bread and a cheese fondue. We always enjoy the experience at this restaurant!!!! 😎

We only had the buffet style breakfast here, but the food was good everytime. It could've been a little warmer, but that happens with a buffet sometimes.
