Dinner looked appealing but both meals were too salty, especially the fish and chips and the lobster bisque. Service was very good and the lake view was great. Too bad about the food.

This is a great spot to eat and drink. You can arrive be car or by boat. The place is large and can seat a large family or a couple. The bar is separate but families will have to pass through the bar to eat inside or use the facilities. The menu has many choices and the food is great.... More

My siblings and spouses pulled in for a sunset dinner on the lake. Nice deck and great wait staff. A wide variety of beers options. Great salad possibilities, with a walleye sandwich or burger. Super nice setting and comfortable to dine and visit.

Very attentive wait staff and beautiful view of Gull Lake from the patio. There is a playground for kids and lots of patio seating. We only stopped in for some lunch at the bar so we didn't have a chance to see the entire menu. I had the Dipper sandwich and the prime rib was very flavorful and delicious! We... More

Our party of eight arrived by boat on a beautiful summer afternoon. Without reservations we got straight in and the food was good. Plenty of people there enjoying the live music. Great atmosphere. Everyone was pleased with their meals. Expect to pay about $15 a plate for lunch. Not cheap easts but a nice experience. Service is quick but give... More

I had the fish tacos. My husband had the burger of the month which had peppers, onions, and cheese with a hint of spice. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. It was a relaxing evening meal by the lake.

Headed back to Minneapolis for flights and stopped here for lunch prior to hitting the road. Had an outside table over looking the lake. Great view. Standard pub type food, I had the patty melt and it was very good. Everyone liked their dish and we all had local beers which we loved. They play music in the afternoon, we... More

Went with a group for a business lunch. Sat outside on a beautiful day. Good service. Salads were huge. The mushroom soup was good but not really Hungarian. Had the Walleye sandwich, excellent. Also very good cole slaw. Don't miss the great view.

Ernie's was the perfect spot to dock and listen to live music on a beautiful Sunday afternoon boating on Gull Lake.
