Let's Eat: My Favorite UP North Places

Well, its only days to Fishing opener and that signals that start of our summer season. People from all over will be heading to Northern Itasca County to fish the beautiful lakes, walk the trails, and enjoy their time at the cabin. There's so much to do that there's not much time for cooking.  Why bother getting the pots, pans, and BBQ dirty when there are many great places to get breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Here's a few of my favorite places that I hope you'll stop in while you're here.  So, Let's EAT!


* Timberwolf Inn:  If you haven't eaten at the Timberwolf, you are totally missing out.  Located just a few miles north of Marcell on Hwy 38, the "Wolf" has a wide variety of menu items.  From sandwiches to soups, seafood and steak, you'll find something to temp your taste buds. Enjoy your meal in the dinning room, bar, or the wonderful patio.  You'll most likely find old friends and even make some new ones.

* Effie Cafe: The Effie Cafe is opened for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.  Located a few miles North of Bigfork, you'll find the little town of Effie.  The Cafe is at the corner of Hwy 38 & Hwy 1.  The food is tasty, the conversation always fun, and if you listen, you might overhear where the fish are biting.  When you eat at the Effie Cafe, you'll find that everyone joins in on a big conversation rather then talking individually.  It's family! 

Park Rec: Think back to a time when you got the best hamburger, fresh off the grill.  Not something that's been sitting under a heat lamp!  Park Rec is located in downtown Bigfork.  You can miss it, there will be plenty of cars parked there and folks enjoying their burgers.  Priced very reasonably and ever so good! 

* Antler Lodge: Just up Scenic 7, you'll find the Antler Lodge. This timeless lodge offers a full menu including: Prime Rib, Lobster, Crab Legs, Shrimp, Steaks, Chicken, Burgers and Pizza. While you are there you can also shop for antiques and crafts.

That's my top favorite places! Enjoy discovering the Edge of the Wilderness!
