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..........
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.
