Enjoy the view and the food.

We were lucky to be there on a Wednesday for their Burger Bar night. Between 4 and 6 P.M., the special included drinks at happy hour prices and great burgers and fries that also included a trip to the "bar" to add fixings to the burgers. The burger bar was a treatl because along with the usual... read more

Try the walleye cakes! Also chicken pot pie and squash ravioli was best I ever had, (winter menu). Off season so service was a little slow but if you can see it as a time to relax you will be fine. Some of the best food I ever had

Great spot in the summer if you want perfect views and outdoor seating. But you will have to be patient. Food is super slow as is the service during the summer months and with only a few exceptions you can do better eating at home. I like it for cocktails and appetizers.

Great atmosphere in both the bar and the restaurant, the latter of which has a lake view during the more temperate months. The food is good and the prices reasonable.

I wish the menu had more to choose from. My filet was wonderful - althought I thought a tad bit on the high side. My husband had the ribs and they were great!

We have a cabin in the Walker area and are always looking for a great place to eat to have a night off from cooking (or a great place to grab an app and a drink while in Walker shopping). The Chase is a beautiful hotel/resort on Leech Lake and the 502 is their restaurant. It has a great view... More

We had lunch with 5 people and the food was good and the prices were good. Service was extremely slow - we had to track a waitress down for beverage refills and our bill. We enjoyed eating outside.

We ate at the 502 for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! The food was very good and not at all pricy! The customer service is outstanding and friendly. All the servers were smiling and more then friendly, as well as efficient. I would recommend 100% and if lived in the area would be a very regular customer!

We went to the 502 recently for lunch and then went back the next day for brunch. The food was great, service was quick and friendly and the view is the best. It was not overpriced like on site restaurants often are. We will be back!
