Where To Eat

The Brainerd Lakes Area is home to many great restaurants, but eating while on vacation is more than about good food. It's about the experience. In the Whitefish Area, not only will you never leave the table hungry, but you'll also enjoy breath-taking sunsets, cozy up-north furnishings and even some whimsical, historical decor.

Dining styles around the Whitefish Region range from fine to casual and offers menus for all tastes and ages. Contact your lodging host for additional recommendations (or even a sneek-peak at some of the area's menus) regarding the best dining option for your group.
