Great burger place with great view of Hall Lake. Boat dock for boaters. Servers are very friendly and prompt. For those who want something other than a burger they offer a few other things--but it is really all about the burgers.

The Channel Inn is a nice little hidden gem on a lake in Fairmont. Nice outside/covered seating. Make sure to place your order inside at the bar. Very good burgers. Credit cards are not accepted but there is a ATM machine on site.
