“Everything here is fabulous!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Everything from the drinks to the food, and the daily specials are wonderful and different! Small place, but have some outside seating. Needs only a few trees or planters. Can't wait to get back there!

“Not recamended”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

For being here a first time and have been in food business for 12 years I was not impressed. Bugs in the window seal by our food the restaurant was so cold and the waitress hardly introduced herself. The food did taste good but was over priced paying 6.50 for a cheese burge with lettece and tomato that came with five onion rings. I will not be returning or recamending skal to anyone but would hope they increase the hostpitality and pricing compared to portion size.

“Breakfast??”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Ordered breakfast skillet and was dissapointed! Tasted very good but very small. How about maybe adding some toast and potatoes?? For $7, I left very hungry and had to stop in Perham to eat more food for trip home from cabin :(

“I love Skal!”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

The owners know what they are doing with this place! Its not just your average bar food and drinks! Its much more! Stop in and try the fish tacos- they are my fave! Or the fried mushrooms! I do not like mushrooms however these are great! You can't go wrong with Skal!

“This gem is worth the side trip”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Skal is located in Vergas, which is a little out of the way from Detroit Lakes, but Skal is worth the trip. It is a tiny bar that serves fusion burgers and sandwiches, and has a nice selection of beer pours. The fish tacos are perfect. The blue cheese burger is a perfect combination of blue cheese sauce and caramelized onions. The lahvosh is delicious too. The restaurant does not seat people, so if you are coming on a Friday or Saturday night, be prepared to wait, but you can grab one of those great beers while you are waiting.
