My mom has fond memories of stopping at the Bungalow in the 1930's; her family would stop there for food and gasoline every summer on their way to Yellow Lake. We all had dinner recently, after an outdoor concert in Hudson, and were pleased to see the kitchen stayed open until 10 pm on a weeknight. Our party of 8 people was very hungry, and everything looked and sounded SO good. At 8:30 pm on a Thursday, the restaurant was not that busy, but there was an active bar crowd, and they all seemed to know each other. It took a really long time for our food to come, and we didn't eat until about 9:15.
Impressions: Decor is a cross between Alpine lodge and "tired sports bar" and could use some sprucing up. Prices aren't too bad and portions are good-sized. Food was pretty average. My walleye sandwich ($9.95), a "valley favorite," was slightly undercooked, not golden brown--but I was too hungry to send it back. It was OK. My husband and my father raved about the broasted chicken ($12.95), but my brother from River Falls had the WORST Bungalow Burger ever ($9.75) and vows he will never come back. And Mom? She also had a hamburger, which she thought was "OK," but said, "It's hard to beat the hamburgers at Barker's in Hudson." I would have to agree!
