Frog Legs

By: Roger Jarvi

I took the Great River Road from Lake Itasca, Mn. to Hannibal, Mo.
While there, I enjoyed frog legs for the first time at a restaurant near the Tom Sawyer Center. Add the hot sauces to really perk up the taste. Owner said legs are becoming more difficult to find so getum quick.


West Side Cafe

By: Sherry K Beard

This fabulous mom and pop restaurant has the BEST breakfasts anywhere, hands down! It is a definite stop when we are in the Little Falls, MN area. It’s like going to a family friend’s house for breakfast.

I go for the stuffed hash browns almost every time. Holey moley, they are SO good. When I don’t get those, everything omelet keeps me happy until lunchtime. SOOO yummy!

The food is awesome, the prices are great, and the service is friendly. Stop in (119 W Broadway) and check them out the next time you are even close to Little Falls. But bring your cash as they don’t accept debit or credit cards.


What BBQ

By: Donna & Royce

We love the food that Mike and Schill create in their scratch kitchen at What BBQ. The environment here is so friendly. Love everything, but our faves are the ribs and their pulled chicken and desserts. They mix some awesome cocktails as well!

Pickled Loon Saloon is a great place to drive, boat or paddle into. They are located on Pokegama Lake in Grand Rapids. Pokegama Lake is a Mississippi River reservoir lake. They have a wide variety menu and many options that are heart healthy, gluten and vegetarian. They have live music out on their patio during COVID-19. They are requiring masks while in the restaurant. The offer outdoors dining as well. They welcomed goats to the island located in front of the restaurant to eat down the greenery versus using harsh chemicals to get rid of the weeds.
