“The Best Fish Fry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Pine Ridge is far and away the best fish fry we've had! The service is quick, friendly, and efficient, which is not usually the case with fish fries. The fish is excellent and so is the chicken. We enjoy every part of the meal! Get there early, but even if you have to wait, it's an easy one with the beautiful lake, plus the outdoor bar!

“UP NORTH RUSTIC RESTAURANT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

The restaurant is very old and rustic and brings you back in time. Their menu has many choices and it is very hard to decide what to have. Friday Fish Fry is excellent and you have a choice of fish or chicken and it is served with fry bread. People arrive early (4:00 p.m.) for their delicious meal.

“Thursday Fajita night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We always love eating at Pine Ridge. The setting is beautiful and the smell of the pines as you go in is wonderful Most importantly they have great food. There were 4 of us and we all ordered steak fajitas. You start off with chips & salsa which is great. The steak fajitas are always very tender and flavorful. The only thing I miss when I get the fajitas is that you don't get the fry bread that comes with the other meals. Of course with the fajitas and the chips I would be too full to eat the fry bread. We love the setting of the old log building and the view of the lake. It is a great place and we always look forward to eating there and recommending it to others.

“No fish fry can compare!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Pine Ridge has IT! Their food has ruined other fish places for me ;)! I am not exaggerating when I say this.
The wait is long, but, sit back, enjoy the scenery, visit with the bartender, and you will be pleasantly rewarded.
The meal begins with scrumptious fry bread and delectable coleslaw. Then you have the choice of gigantic fried walleye filets or delicious baked filets, baked potato or seasoned fries...and out-of-this-world broasted chicken. Their tartar sauce is even perfect!
A glass of house wine is also included in your meal.
I am a local, and there are MANY places to go for fish fry...do not let the occasional long wait deter you from this gem!

“Hidden Treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We met friends to go to Pine Ridge with them. They said we'd have to be there by 4:00 p.m. in order to get seated right away. We arrived at Pine Ridge at 3:50 p.m. and got the last table for four. We went on Friday night, so fish was on the menu - they don't even serve dessert that night. Our orders were: two broiled fish with two baked potatoes, two deep-fried fish with two orders of fries - and we each ordered a "glass" of the complimentary blush wine. Coleslaw was served in a large bowl along with a basket of fry bread. Then came a platter with four good-sized broiled fillets and a large basket with the several fried fish over the French fries over (surprise) broasted chicken!! It was "all you could eat", but we were too full to finish what we were served. We'll definitely return. If you can't get seated immediately, there are picnic tables and an outside bar for those who must wait.
