“Good Wild Rice Soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

A severe thunderstorm had passed through-knocking out power, but the friendly staff still served us hot soup by candlelight

“Best Restaurant on Lake Winnibigoshish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Not only does this restaurant have great homemade pizza, I have not had a bad meal at this restaurant. Homemade and tasty, plus the owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Bring in your fish, and they will cook it for you, or order from their menu. If you sit by the back window you just may see a bear. If not there is a stuffed bear in the restaurant along with lots of mounted fish and local animals.

“The Best Gosh Dam Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

After a week of eating camping fare at a nearby fishing lodge, we decided to take our mosquito riddled bodies out for a meal. Despite a sign with the ridiculous claim of "the world's best pizza", we were intrigued by a motel/restaurant/bar which we had seen nearby. Our family of six went to "The Gosh Dam Place" for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The interior was clean and spacious and appropriately decorated for the location. Walls displayed an assortment of flora, fauna and taxidermy. Everyone was immediately drawn to the fireplace where we took photos with a large stuffed bear.

We were eager to try both the fish which we hadn't caught and the world's best pizza. The waitress was courteous and efficient and helped us personalize our orders. We began with an appetizer of walleye fingers...a generous, great tasting portion. Delicious. We also requested two large pizzas. One was "meat lovers" and the second was the "everything but the kitchen sink pizza" (jalapenos were added, sauerkraut and sausage removed).The pizzas arrived, homemade, fresh, aromatic and piping hot. Before I could even take a photo, slices where grabbed and consumed. Fabulous.

We had a great meal and a fun family experience. I'm not normally a pizza lover, but the pizza from this restaurant could definitely turn me into one. Perhaps they really do serve the world's best pizza.
