We always stop here on our way to Canada fishing. The staff is always very accommodating and talkative. Great local food and atmosphere. It is small so you may have to wait to get seated but it is worth it.

My wife and daughter and I had lunch here looking for a local place instead of a chain. It has quaint fishing decor catering to the fishermen tourists. The owner and her family are the staff of the place. They are very friendly and make you feel comfortable very easily. We all had sandwiches of some kind; the fried walleye, the Voyageur burger and a southwest chicken sandwich. All were good representatives of what they were. On the side were freshly cut french fries. My favorite. They were good.
Be sure to eat here if you are in International Falls.

This family run restaurant is the perfect place to stop on your way through International Falls, Mn on the start or return from a Canadian fishing trip. This restaurant is open during the main tourist season, early May through late August. I'm sure the local clientele can't wait for the fishing season to open. Everything is made in house, fresh to order. The menu includes the standards as well as creative, innovative menu items.

The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. We've eaten many of the standard items and have never been disappointed.

The last time through town we stopped and ordered Chantill's Hash Brown Omelet. What a delightful meal. A twist on the classic omelet. First a bed of shredded potato's is browned to perfection on the flat top. Then a filling of whipped eggs with your choice of additional items are added. These could be peppers, onions, mushrooms, sausage and more. After being cooked the concoction is folded and cheese is melted on top. This is topped with the most flavorful strip of bacon imaginable. Served with your choice of toast this meal sticks to the ribs and pleases the palate.

Be prepared for a warm welcome. Chantill the owner and the staff treat you as one of the family. She has a unique quality and is truly a beautiful person.
