Hotel Shoreham Bar & Bistro & Pizzeria. Alive with history, food and spirits. Hotel Shoreham's aura. The parade of past and present. Haunts. Drift back in time circa 1910. Picture yourself in a straw boater or white lace, a summer evening on the porch
Third visit to this joint and it was a success again.Have had the Ribeye - great, Sirloin - super great (for sirloin). The works Pizza - they have a separate pizza house with 4 ovens...the place is known for their pizza. Havarti wrapped pickles were about the best appetizer Iâve ever had (see pic). Good onion rings, good wings with some legitimate hot sauce. The place knows how to cook a steak, and the pizza is a sure-thing. In all my reviews, I do not recall ever recommending a specific menu item. But if you go here - get the havarti pickles. A great setting tucked between two lakes. Itâs on the lake, but interestingly the do not have water view seating. I had a very good rating on this but decided to change it to excellent.

I spent 4 weeks in the Holiday Inn attached to the Ice House Restaurant. I think I tried everything on the menu during this time and always had a pleasant welcome from the host and server staff. I especially appreciated Tina for having our table ready with extra coffee for out thermosâ before we arrived. Thank you for taking care of us during our stay.

Small town diners are my favorite but this one has to be the worst I've had so far. Waitress was nice and great service. I got the omelette special and it was flavorless. Eggs were a thin rubbery something (Are these even eggs??), cheese was that cheap crappy sliced cheese that comes in the individual wrappers and the mushrooms were canned (as if they just dumped them from the can) I was hoping more for a home cooked country breakfast. I was lucky I had a ten on me because they don't take credit or debit cards and it's only posted on a taped down paper on the register counter (very unnoticeable) Should be posted at the front door. They have no ATM either and I was told I'd have to go to the bank down the street to get cash. What good is that when I'm done eating and told that when it's time to pay?! So disappointed:(

We went with our friends. We both have one year olds. We sat down and no waitress came for a good 10 min so I sent my husband to find one. She came and got our drink orders and we ordered some fries for the girls. We waited and waited to order our food and then we waited and waited for our food. The only thing that came out timely was the fries (thank god).No family has time to have a two hour lunch at a restaurant with toddlers. Plus we all got our food but my husband. He had to wait another 10 min. We were all so famished we couldnât wait for him. I think this restaurant has good potential but weâve notoriously had bad service. And none of the items are a âI canât live withoutâ so it will eventually effect the business if this continues.

A Taste of the Islands in Detroit Lakes.
This operation is definitely in need of a physical makeover. It is obviously a resort based operations that caters to seasonal visitors. The food was actually excellent and our server very attentive and pleasant. The facility, however, is in definite need of help.Our meal was constantly interrupted by a diving bombing fly who appears to fit right in with the general dÃ©cor. A fresh coat of paint on the interior, together with some general repairs could improve he atmosphere considerably. The garish exterior coloration needs a lot of help as well. Worth a visit, but the exterior tells the interior tale.

The Fireside is a northern Minnesota lakes area icon with house made, hand cut foods. An immense dose of style dominates a menu filled with classic, eclectic and inventive fare. Our stylish, chic and posh dining room is built around an open-air antique ch
My husband and I spent my birthday weekend in Detroit Lakes and we had dinner at the Fireside as we did last year. Last year we enjoyed sitting at the front windows looking out at the lake, but unfortunately this year, the front windows were completely boarded for repair. We did get seated at a side window, but not quite as dramatic of a view. But the service was excellent, the food was very good, and we enjoyed the night. The restaurant is quiet so it's nice for a special occassion.

Came here because of the great reviews. The patio was very nice, views were great. Service stunk. My husband ordered the Tex Mex Burrito which was thrown together then hap hazzardly grilled. Dry and disgusting. I ordered the hot wing and I can usually eat 6, I ate all 12 , they were chicken little, and over cooked and chewy. Not sure how it rated the reviews other that the views because the service and the food stunk. we waited 20 minutes for our bill, because our waitress said OH SORRY I got intercepted. What ever.

Okay, letâs get the hardest part out of the way first: how do you pronounced âbrygge,â and what does it mean? Well, the meaning is pretty easy. It means âbrewâ in Danish, according to my ambitious 10-second internet search. As Danish descendants areâsortaâcommon in northwestern Minnesota (though far outnumbered by Norwegians and Swedes), it makes some sense to name a Detroit Lakes bar and grill after a Danish word. It gets trickier when you try to pronounce Brygge Taps & Tastes. Not so easy to find on the internet, check it out. Best guess is it rhymes with âhygge,â which is pronounced sort of like âhue-gah,â and means gemutlichkeit. And that is pronounced, well, never mind. So "brew-gah," then, clever, no?Detroit Lakesâ most famous bar-and-grill options are on the lake, and they are not bad options, but if you are downtown just adjacent to Washington Avenue and Highway 10, youâve just picked up some groceries, and now you need a convenient brew-gah option in a new strip mall, Brygge is your spot.The nearly new bar features a sort of faux urban warehouse dÃ©cor with stylishly cast ironish pipes, a ceiling of half-missing flooring planks, and side tables bolted to rough-sawn beams. Youâd almost expect you were drinking in a cleaned-up boiler room, if boiler rooms had big-screen televisions broadcasting sports. But when in American history has the sports-bar theme ever failed?Brygge features 30 beers (while four microbrews were sold out, the Hammâs is a regional classic, only $3), and a fairly standard collection of grill fare. Features you wonât find anywhere else around town: fries cut in tapeworm-flat strips and Jameson Irish whiskey on tap. âHow do people order whiskey on tap?â I asked the server. âThey usually order it by the shot,â she said. âBut you can have it on ice.âService was a little slow and not particularly attentiveâyou donât want to pester me for a second beer?âbut the place was busy with baseball players, so. A downside is the restroomsâsingle use only. Really? Itâs a bar, hey. People drink beer, you know. Patrons wanting a summer breeze can eat on the patio, while patrons wanting a winter warmer can enjoy a fireplace, hygge style. Or maybe brygge style.

A pizza and Mexican restaurant on the lake in Detroit Lakes, MN.
On our first night in DL, we stopped in at Zorbas, for dinner. We enjoyed our time out on the patio. We started with an order of Macho Nachos, which tasted fresh and amazing! We also ordered a cheese pizza and the Zorbas special pizza. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere fun! We look forward to our next visit.
