The Amazing Minnesota Restaurant You Can Only Get To By Boat

Being the Land of 10,000 Lakes, it makes sense that Minnesotans have more than a few riverfront or lakefront restaurants to choose from. Guests can choose to drive in to enjoy the waterside scenery, or boat in and enjoy it every mile of the way. But there’s one restaurant in Minnesota that doesn’t give visitors a choice to drive. In northern Minnesota, you can only get to the Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge by boat. But the trip is totally worth it — the food is delicious!
