Trapper Pete’s Steakhouse and Saloon

Before heading over to Jay Cooke State Park for #MNBucketList_JCSP, a bunch of us went to Trapper Pete’s Steakhouse and Saloon for breakfast. We picked it, partly to carb up for the hike and also to appreciate the compliment to Minnesota’s colorful Fur Trade past, which lasted about 300 years. Oh, and it was so much better than expected. I’ll be honest, I thought it would be cramped and not quite friendly to a group of passersby’s but it wasn’t! Lots of leg room, big tables, generous portions and very, very accommodating service. The waitress even laughed at my jokes, so… Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, they have a full bar and banquet center with a pretty hefty focus on their local community. And, if you couldn’t tell, we pretty much tried every breakfast food they offer.
