“Tasty Walleye!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

As we always get to the Outrigger at least once a summer, this meal did not disappoint. As one of the few places in the Lakes area that can prepare/serve walleye properly, I always order the fish. As usual, it was "mighty-fine"! The serving is huge - it comes with a well-chilled tossed salad and choice of potato...I ALWAYS get the twice-baked, which is kitchen made and NOT frozen. Service is good, prices are reasonable. The menu is eclectic...from steaks to frogs' legs to lamb chops!

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Over-priced food. terrible service, our aerver acted like she would rather be scooping poop than waiting on us. I asked her about the Oscar, she said she was from Minnesota so she didn't know. Appetizer came with the meal....Do yourself a favor and go to Tweeters!

I find this comment hard to believe as we have NEVER had a server from Minnesota. Never had ANY complaints on our servers.

“Pleasantly surprized”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We hadn't been to the Outrigger for a couple of years. The decor has been upgraded as well as the service. Britney our waitress took very good care of us and although very busy, was still very attentive. The prices were very comparable to some of the nicer places to eat in this area, my wife said her salmon was the best that she has had in boji. My New York strip was done to perfection. The only thing that thy could improve on is the ingredients to the side sald, but the Mango dressing was very tasty. We will be back soon for sure.
