Amazing food and views. The lake is 20 feet away from the building. In the summer you can dine outside even closer to the water.

I great place to enjoy lunch and a beer. Loved the Lobster Bisque and dry rub wings. Local craft beer on tap. What's not to like . Next time I will visit via boat.

We've visited Ernies on several occasions over the past few years and always enjoy sitting on the patio enjoying excellent pan-fried walleye and a cold beer (with a decent selection including a couple local craft breweries).

There are also Adirondack chairs and bags while you wait for a table. It's busy for a reason :)

We had lunch here and enjoyed a beautiful view of Gull Lake. There were about 10 tables next to windows lakeside and views of the lake from almost everywhere in the resturaunt. We shared the hummus appetizer and it was very good. Three different varieties of hummus along with veggies and pita bread. The service was fine. We had a nice experience here.

While driving to Minneapolis airport after a wonderful weekend with friends at their lakehouse, my husband and I looked on Tripadvisor for lunch suggestions in the Brainerd area. Ernie’s seemed like a good option and would give us more time lakeside. We can imagine how enjoyable it could be sitting outside for dining in the summer. Inside is cozy and staff were welcoming and friendly. Locals were dining while watching Vikings game available on several tvs around the restaurant and bar areas. Menu choices offer something for everyone. Options include fish, beef, chicken, vegetarian and gluten-free. A local guest who walked in with us stopped by our table to recommend the lobster bisque. It was a chilly day so we did order it and the spinach, brie, fig jam, chicken sandwich. YUM. Lunch was just what we needed while we sitting at lake view table and watching first quarter of Vikings game. A nice way to say goodbye to northern Minnesota. Outside was a banner advertising an Octoberfest event - if we could be in the area, we think that we would probably attend.
