Impressive, both beautiful and professional. Great place to eat and have a brew when you want to keep the party vibe going, right in the middle of downtown Walker.

Cheers!

Matty's rocked!! Great place for a bloody mary and they LOVE crazy Jammers!! PLUS FREE JELLO SHOTS when the Vikings score and win!!! Yeah, that might not happen in JULY but still... cool place. A heap of us went there after the Looooooonacy. Ah the good ol days, miss the cool peeps of the Loooonacy!

But, speaking of Jam food... OMG OMG OMG, I am soooooooooo gonna have me a porkchop-ona-stick!!! Last year didn't make it to any of the food huts (tried VIP) and I missed it so... get me a good ol buttery corn on the cob, an OMG Uffda Taco (slip some extra coin & compliment, got it ~ thanks Stoner), yummm yummmm! Do they have mini-donuts there? They always smell soooo good.

Hope everyone's keeping up the chant 83DAS 83DAS 83DAS!! I am NOT wearing mittens at Naughty Nacho 19! :D

I'm going to Matty's for lunch today & will report back here on the food
and service during the 'off season'. Last time I was there I had some sort
of meat sandwich (sorry I can't recall which) along w/the sweet potato
fries; the reason I can't recall which sandwich I had was because of those
over the top super scrumptious fries.

anyone joining us for lunch? I'll be there @ 1pm w/2 hillbilly lookin' dudes.

I see a few places left off the list. I'll try to include those now.

Village Square - Downtown Walker - pizza, sandwiches, daily specials, wireless internet
Hardee's - Downtown Walker - fast food
DQ - Downtown Walker - fast food
Subway - Downtown Walker - sandwiches
Quiznos - Downtown Walker (coming first week of May) - sandwiches
Outdoorsman - Downtown Walker - sit down restaurant, home cooked meals
502 restaurant - Downtown Walker, located in the Chase hotel - great view of Leech Lake, full menu and bar
Jimmy's - north edge of Walker, adjacent to Americinn - sit down restaurant, home cooked meals
Lucky Moose - south edge of Walker, adjacent to Country Suites Walker - sit down restaurant and bar, home cooked meals
Ranch House restaurant - 4 miles north of Walker on Hwy 371, full menu and bar
Charlie's - 4 miles south of Walker at the Y junction - full menu and bar (known for their outside boat bar)
Northern Lights Casino has a sit down restaurant as well as a buffet restaurant. Usually during the jam, the buffet is running until the wee hours of the morning, for late night grazing.
Beachfire Bar and Grille - located near Whipholt on Hwy 200 (Trapper's Landing Lodge) - sandwiches, daily specials
many of the other resorts in the Walker area also have snack bars and restaurants, too many to list here.

There's also a restaurant in downtown Akeley. It's a family style restaurant, great food and only 10 miles from Walker on Hwy 34.

To the south, Hackensack has a couple of restaurants. Hackensack is 10 miles south of Walker on Hwy 371. If you want to go another 5 miles south, the tiny town of Backus has a couple of good eating places. One is adjacent to the Amoco station, a family style sit-down restaurant, big portions, and reasonably priced. Also, if you turn east at Godfrey's and drive about 3 miles, there's a small eatery named Salty Dog which serves excellent BBQ ribs, burgers and other similar meals.

I too, like the Jam food. I usually get a slice or two of pizza from Dominoes if I'm sitting up in the grassy knoll, or visit the Lazy Moon and have a great burger and fries, which doesn't cost any more than any place in town. The wait staff at the Lazy Moon is second to none.

Okay, now I'm hungry!

Wow, you got them all there uffda, you work for the chamber of commerce? ;) and finally America now knows who that was on the grassy knoll.......... :shock:

I've eaten @ every place on your list except the 502 (& Quizno's of course) over the years but have never dined @ The Lazy Moon during the Jam, I will this year though regardless of cost which I'll use as my segue into my recent visit to Matty's in Walker....

OK, went to Matty's as mentioned & met w/my hillbilly friends for lunch; I recall inviting anyone reading my previous post to join us but nobody stepped up, many however stared. We order and whilst waiting for our fare hillbilly #1 pulls out his iphone and starts scrolling through his recent fishing pics as hillbilly #2 tells me the pics on his new ipad are even better; I'm now forced to consider my current station in life as I can only hope one day catch up with the Hatfields & McCoys.


I had a bacon cheeseburger with fresh cut fries & a 7up, the meal was delicious but a little bit spendy, $12.25 before tip/$14.50 with tip. ouch?
I'm by no means a cheapskate but $9.75 is an awful lot for a burger 'n fries without being in some sort of upscale situation or event, or does the new $6 now cost 10? Service was great and food arrived quickly, nice burger, tasty bun, thick slices of bacon & the fresh cut fries were very nice.



The Lucky Moose is my next meal out in the Walker area & I'll have a small report on my experience there soon. I've only dined there twice soon after they opened and both times were very pleasant, as I recall it's a comfort food type of menu with full meal (minus beverage) prices starting @ around eight or nine dollars.

Actually, in my haste to post, I inadvertently forgot one from the list. The newly revamped American Legion has daily lunch specials as well as a full menu. The burgers are nice size and cheap.
Hmm...no, I don't work for the Chamber, even though they're right next door. I've just lived here in Walker for a long time! Oh, and I like to eat too. LOL
Yeah, us people in the grassy knoll are a quiet bunch.
As far as the Lazy Moon, I like the California burger with fries. You can get the burger, fries and soft drink for around $10. Plus, where else can you get something to eat, while watching the Moondance performers walk within 20 feet of you.

well I regret to say that I never made it to the Lazy Moon Backstage Bar this year which was regrettable as I hear that Kevin Cronin of REO Speedwagon was there buying shots and beers for everyone hanging out, pretty cool.

anyone back there @ that time that'd like to qualify the above rumor with a 'been there done that' story?
