As soon as I found out that the Minnesota Governor’s Fishing Opener was going to be in McGregor, I knew I had to go to Mark’s Bar. A town staple that serves as a favorite watering hole for locals, vacationers, townies, “just passin’ through”s and overnight-ers; ask anyone in McGregor and they’ll know Mark’s. A tradition to everyone I talked to, Mark’s Bar and Grill and Off Sale Liquor is a one stop shop. People rave about their Bloody Mary’s but they are also known for their burgers, ribs, cheesy pizza and layered, sky-high nachos. The nachos I can attest to, and those pictured are actually the ‘small’. I will warn that the staff is a little tough on you, and they aren’t afraid to give you a hard time. If you don’t go with it, it’ll rub you the wrong way – especially you out-of-towners. Don’t worry, they’ll only slightly hold it against you, lol. They have a pretty impressive beer selection and even have an old bottle and can collection littered on the walls between old photos of the area. Whether you’re coming through on a snowmobile on your way to Eelpout, heading to your cabin off Big Sandy, grabbing ice at Off Sale or just looking to get out of the house, head over to Mark’s Bar – let me know what you think!
