We have always enjoyed our breakfast at the Waypoint Restaurant at the Red Door Resort on Lake MilleLacs. Closed now but plans to open spring 2017.

I eat here with my family every time I'm in the area. The service is exceptional, the portions are huge, and the new owners are like family to me. Very accommodating to customers and one of the cleanest restaurants I've been to yet. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for home cooked meals and desserts. (The strawberry...

I stayed at the resort for 10 days for 2 family reunions. I had meals just about every day and they were some of the best I have tasted. The staff was friendly, helpful and made me feel at home. I will be stopping there when ever I go through that area, even if I have to make a side... More

My wife, sister in law and I had breakfast this morning at the Red Door Restaurant. What an awesome experience! The service was outstanding. And the food was scrumptious. The portions were more than adequate. We will be returning. Great restaurant!!

Stopped there for breakfast and ordered one of my favorite breakfast items - biscuits and gravy. Frankly I am an aficionado of sorts. It was excellent. The baking powder biscuit was different and I'm not sure why. I forgot to ask. But it sure was good too! The full order was more than I could eat so I have enough... More

My favorite is the fisherman's breakfast platter, the kids like getting the kids pancakes and my husband changes up his mind. Decent prices here.

We were out and about just enjoying a drive and stopped in for a quick beer. The food that we saw that was served to others in the restaurant looked very appealing. Would definitely stop by there again and have something to eat. Wait staff was very pleasant.

We ate here 3 times during our stay at the resort. New owners Lou Anne and daughter Alicia were very welcoming. MOST important was the good food. Hot beef, juicy lucy, walleye. Even the oatmeal was good and the home made Carmel roll was just like my grandma used to make. The decor is all knotty pine and worth the... More
