We always stop by the Channel Inn when we're in Fairmont, which is probably once every three months or so. The Channel Inn is located right on Hall Lake and the water appears to nearly lap at the window--you could reach out and touch it! It's a small place, decked out Northwoods style with exposed logs and woodwork, big windows, and lots of beer signs. Half of the establishment is bar, while the other half is table seating for the restaurant. It's a family-friendly restaurant and we've taken my husband's parents and our kids there for burgers and fries. And burgers and fries are the heart of the menu. I really enjoy the Channel Inn burger with bacon and a fried egg--delish! They also have Cattlemen's sauce on the table in a squeeze bottle--along with the catsup and mustard bottles--and it's super on the Channel Inn's fries! FYI, fries are ala carte, they don't come with the meal. Also, don't expect to pay with a debit or credit card. Cash or local checks only. There is an ATM on site if you need it.
