Was not disappointed last Saturday night, my birthday dinner. The restaurant is small and attached to the up north bar. The waitresses were overworked, however, very nice and did their best. The salad bar is small..could use a couple of more selections.

First, the food was good. Four sandwiches, one grilled reuben, two fried grouper, one fried pork wiener schnitzel, they were good. Though not served as described on the menu, with lettuce and tomato, until it was pointed out to the waitress. And, the wait. It was near a half hour for four sandwiches, as though customers in the dining room... More

We love this restaurant and bar! German items are what they are known for, but Trent and his team are always offering delicious specials. Love their grouper dinner or sandwich. Soups are made from scratch and sell out quickly! Maria's German chocolate cake is just like your grandmother made! Barb and Candy always welcome newcomers, seasonal visitors or hunters at... More

Hungry on the lake? Snowmobiling? This is the stop! We called ahead while tubing and hot food was waiting for takeout when we pulled up to the dock. A portopotty outside for wet kids to use the bathroom quickly and fresh hot popcorn for snacking. This place is so convenient and the food is great too. It's always part of... More

Chef Trent is a gem to find in the middle of nowhere in northern Minnesota. Located on Horseshoe Lake, a short drive from McGregor, MN, and the more common Big Sandy Lake, the Horseshoe Lake Inn combines "greasy spoon" style bar food with a welcoming atmosphere, German specialties (the spaetzel is spectacular!) and unique fusion food. Friday and Saturday night... More

Although the decor is extremely dated and dark, the reception we got was warm and welcoming. The staff seemed genuinely pleased to serve us and educated about their restaurant. The food was tasty; however I was disappointed (being a pescetarian, or vegetarian that eats fish) about the lack of clarity on the menu. I ordered fish with mixed vegetables, thinking... More

A wonderful out-of-the-way place for a Saturday night prime rib dinner. The restaurant sits on the shore of Horseshoe Lake. Patio seating is available as weather permits. They serve an excellent prime rib with all the fixings and it includes a great salad bar. The service is outstanding. The chef/owner serves the food as time permits. The atmosphere is so... More
