FOOD AND DRINK

So Many Choices

With access to all 14 of the Whitefish Chain of Lakes there is always someplace to Boat or Drive to for good food and drinks.  Here are some recommended favorites.

SHINERS

Jenkins / 6 Min by Car

This is the closest and one of the best.  It’s a bar, but it is very kid friendly most of the time.  Their pulled pork sandwich is a family favorite. 

They have EXCELLENT sandwiches and soups.  They do deliver to the cabin, but the service has been a little spotty.  It’s best to book that through their website (https://shinersmn.com) EARLY if you want delivery. 

Shiners often has live music on the weekends.  Check their website for additional details.

MOONLITE BAY

Crosslake / 15 min by Car / 40 min by Boat

Moonlite bay kills it on two fronts:

  • They have one of the best patios on the Whitefish Chain with great views of the lake, and


  • They are the easiest boat slips to get in and out of. If you’re a boat renter, this is a super relaxing ride across the entire chain for a great drink and decent food.


There specials are pretty prominent on the website (https://www.moonlitebay.com).

ZORBAZ

Crosslake / 15 min by Car / 40 min by Boat

Zorbaz is another one that you can get to by boat or by car. Pizza is pretty good. There is a boat slip and a wonderful deck. Menu is available on their website (https://zorbaz.com).

The Warf Crosslake_edited.jpg

THE WARF

Crosslake / 15 min by Car / 40 min by Boat

The Wharf has become an iconic symbol in the Crosslake area by locals and vacationers alike. Great food and drinks and it's hard to miss by boat. Check their website for details: https://www.thewharfcrosslake.com.

Bourbon Room Crosslake.jpg

BOURBON ROOM

Crosslake / 15 Min by Car

This restaurant features a really wide variety of food and delicious cocktails (bourbon heavy but not exclusively). The atmosphere is fun and laid back and it’s a good place to watch a game at the bar.  The menu is huge and you’ll have a hard time not finding something for everyone.

One popular item is the Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos. They also have a surprising variety of Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. 

They have regular happy hours and specials that can be found on their website (http://www.bourbonroommn.com). 

Pine Peaks Crosslake_edited.jpg

PINE PEAKS RESTAURANT AND GIFTS

Crosslake / 20 Min by Car

This is the best breakfast we found. There’s something for everyone on the menu, including the Northlander Omelets and the kids love the mini-donut basket! 

It’s also near Reed’s Market (good grocery store) and a decent liquor store, so you can fill up on supplies while you’re out.

Check their website for times (https://pinepeaksgifts.com).
