The food was excellent! I'd recommend the walleye wild rice cakes (covered in just the right amount of essays) or ahi tuna (the thickest sushi you will ever eat). The walleye sandwich was huge and the vegetable side platter was the most delicious, big plate of grilled, seasoned veggies I have ever gotten for $3. The service was prompt and... More

While on a family vacation we took a day trip to Walker and had lunch at the 502 in the Chase Hotel. We were greeted nicely by the hostess and were given the option of indoor or outdoor seating. We sat outdoors with a great view of Leech Lake. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgable about the beers on tap... More

Rumor has it that this establishment is under new management and things are much improved! In the past, our experience has been just ok. The restaurant and bar are beautiful but the food hasn't been anything special and we've mostly enjoyed drinks.

This used to be one of our favorite spots to come for happy hour and to sit on the patio for the lovely view! And we will still come here for a drink and sit outside but won't be ordering food here. It's slowly been degressing as far as taste and quality and the prices have gone up. We brought... More

We had a wonderful family celebration at the 502. We were able to make a reservation to ensure seating for our large family. The service was great, as was the food. We never miss dining at the 502 when we are in Walker. The outdoor seating is so pretty and we love all the beautiful potted flowers🌺

Pricey meals, my seafood was good, steaks not either night. The wild rice bread and dipping sauce was wonderful! We eat inside one night and out on the patio the second, great views watching the beach and lake. Servers were friendly and drinks good.

The positives for this restaurant include the view of the lake as well as nice decorations. The menu is on the smaller side of average. The portion sizes seem to be small and it was higher prices than I expected. I had the chicken deluxe sandwich which was a grilled chicken breast, bacon, as well as ham. The ham was... More

I expected more. More ambiance, for sure. We sat in a huge, cavernous room. The tables weren't close together, but the tables/furniture seemed small. The view was great, if you were facing the lake. The tables could have been positioned so that both sides could have a view of the lake. The food was way overpriced. I had a piece... More

While camping up north we ventured back to civilization and enjoyed a great lunch, service, and a view of the lake. Highly recommend this place for any occasion. We will be back next time we are in the area.

We ordered 6 different dishes and they were all wonderful! Our bartender was so fun and even gave us money to go play more music on the jukebox.
