Great place with quality food. Their burgers are fantastic and they are a very nice staff. The location is little weird, as it is away from the lakefront of Lake Vermillion. Very nice bar and I enjoyed it very much.

Having a lake place in Effie, there aren't a lot of choices for a dinner out. The Italian place in Side Lake closed up last year, and we went to the Junction Bar in Togo the night before. I looked online and found the Crescent in Cook, and it had some recent, good reviews. Our other option was the #2 ranked restaurant in Cook, and after looking at the mixed reviews, we decided to try our luck with the Crescent. We weren't disappointed. The coconut shrimp appetizer was awesome, just as our server Emily promised. HUGE shrimp. HUGE. And not overcooked. The salad bar was simple, but fresh and flavorful, and my NY strip was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Hubby got the pork tenderloin special, and loved it. The other couple both had the shrimp scampi, and it was made with REAL garlic. Lots of it. Emily asked if everything was OK, and when we told her it was wonderful, she stated, "That's our goal!" Mission accomplished Crescent Bar and Grill!

After driving for over 850 miles from Wichita Kansas to Orr Minnesota for a week of fishing, my brother and I decided to grab a pizza while awaiting our Saturday check in time at Birch Forest Lodge on Pelican Lake about 30 minutes up the road.
I did a search on the internet before we left Wichita and saw the Crescent Bar & Grill in Cook so we had already decided, based on their website, that they were a must stop on this trip. We were not disappointed. We got a large Italian sausage pizza with a beer for Doug and a glass of Merlot for me. It was wonderful. The pizza and the drinks.
We went back on Wednesday and did it again. They have a very diverse menu and a great big smoker outside for smoking whatever they decide for the week. I highly recommend the place. The wait staff was also very friendly and after 16 hours on the road that was nice.
Happy hour Mon-Fri 2:30pm-5:30pm. They have carry out beer and wine too.

The original restaurant started before prohibition. It has been through many owners. The current family does an outstanding job with what i would describe as great bar food. It has variety, quality and a good wine list.
