I took my mother-in-law to Garrison as a way to continue introducing her to Minnesota. We stopped at a restaurant that I frequented in my youth the spotlight café. The ambience is not changed much in 40 years but it is still quite pleasant. The...More

Great bean & ham soup and a nice half turkey sandwich. My son had the French dip sandwich while he said was very average. Possibly he said they could have selected a better cut of beef and charged a $1.00 more per entree.

Love a good breakfast spot. A view of Lake Mille Lacs is a bonus for this local Garrison venue. Homemade flavors with a hearty breakfast of eggs, hash browns, sausage and toast. Enjoy the view !

There are not a lot of restaurant choices in Garrison but I thought a family, locally-owned eatery would be a better choice than the McD fast food. Since I was eating with a view of the lake I went with a fish dinner. The soup...More

I have literally never had a bad meal at this place. Their location is homey, the staff is wonderful and accommodating and their food is delicious. I'm particularly partial to the drummies with a side of their delicious bbq sauce!! Don't fret about to-go orders...More
