Last week I caught up on a little R&R in the waters of Lake Minnetonka, MN. The famous lake provides everything from unreal wakeboarding spots, to one of the best boat parties you’ve ever seen.. It also has some incredible waterfront dining options, with one spot that I am particularly stoked on...
Lord Fletchers on Lake Minnetonka is probably one the coolest, slickest outdoor lakeside restaurants I have ever been to. Its central location on Lake Minnetonka makes it extremely easy to arrive by boat. The dock parking is particularly organized. The sheer number of dock slips make Lord Fletchers look more like a marina than a restaurant/bar. The restaurant features four bars, beach volleyball courts and three different dining areas (The Main Dining Room, The Oar House and The Wharf).
The Wharf is located on an outside deck that spans the length of a football field. The outdoor area features three bars and a ridiculous amount of table seating. The Wharf has a different menu from the main dining area and is well versed in Apres boating specialties. The Fast Eddie's Burger not only has a fantastic name, but is also extremely delicious. The Southwest Chicken Sandwich served with Guacamole is another solid choice. Its location on the water makes it perfect for boaters from all directions to easily grab a bite anytime of day.
As the sun starts to set on Lake Minnetonka, Lord Fletcher's Wharf starts to get cracking. There is always live entertainment, drink specials and people who are looking to have a good time. Friday and Saturday nights at Lord Fletcher's present a unique opportunity to party at a premier lakeside destination without breaking the bank. From 9pm to close, Fletcher's offers $3.50 cocktails!... And I'm not talking about well drinks... The $3.50 drinks include Absolute, Stoli, Malibu and Jameson. This is the best deal going for a party spot as epic as Fletcher's Wharf.
If you’re visiting the Minneapolis area and plan on spending some time on Lake Minnetonka, be sure to check out Lord Fletcher's Old Lake Lodge. You are guaranteed to get a great meal and have a fantastic time.
