“Good Food with an Up North Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

We celebrated my dad's birthday here on a Wed night, which was senior night, where they had 7 meals for $9.99 ea. We stopped by the bar first for happy hour drinks and appetizers. We had excellent cheese curds, spinach dip and chicken dummies. For our dinner courses we tried BBQ ribs, chicken oscar, French dip sandwich and a deluxe homemade pizza. All entrees were tasty, but the ribs won the "best of the night" award! They allowed us to bring in a birthday cake which we shared with the staff. In the past, we have had problems with service, but our waitress was excellent and did a great job! Thank you for making it a memorable night!

“The place for Walleye!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

A local couple recommended the Deerstand for Walleye, a menu goal during our trip to Minnesota. There were several choices and all four of us enjoyed our meal of Walleye, each cooked in different styles, with wild rice, of course, and a nice side salad. The server was friendly and efficient and the manager (owner) came to our table, offered to take pictures and afterwards brought a yummy chocolate dessert to the table for us to share. A favorite dining experience of our two-week trip and one of the reasons we prefer non-chain, moderately-priced restaurants when traveling. The place was packed on a Wednesday night, so obviously a favorite of other travelers and locals as well. You won't be disappointed!

“Nice local restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a nice dinner last night at the Deerstand. It was nearly full on a Monday with much of the crowd enjoying a casual game of bar bingo with dinner. The pan fried walleye was wonderful, served with a baked potato and side salad. Others in our group had the strip steak special, served with side salad or chicken tortilla soup, fries or baked potato and green beans - all for about $14. A full bar is available.

The service was friendly, efficient and knowledgable. The up north ambiance with knotty pine and wildlife was pleasant and the noise level was quiet enough to carry on a conversation even with the bingo going on. All in all, a nice evening that would have been even better if we'd won at bingo.
