We had lunch around 1:15 on a Saturday afternoon. There was a benefit going on at the same time, so the staff was stretched pretty thin. We got seated right away, and had a few different people stop by over the next 10 minutes to tell us that someone would be over to help us soon. We were in no... More

Have enjoyed Winjum's frequently since moving to the area in the last year. With the holidays, I had not been there for a few months...went there recently and they have a new menu! Can't wait to try all that is new!

This place is bit out of the way, but worth it. I have never had a bad meal here. I can't even say one thing that is my favorite because it is all so good. I like to go in the winter though because it's not so busy. Sometimes it's pretty hard to get a table in the summer, but... More

I went with a few family members for late lunch around 3. The food was yummy, and the gentleman who waited on us was over every 10 minutes to make sure everything was taken care of. Great service!

I had the petite cut of prime rib on a saturday. It came with a roll, choice of potato, vegetable and soup for about $14.95. Excellent price for all the food. Lots to choose from on their menu. Service was ok but loud because of other patrons. This restraunt is alittle out of the way but definetly worth the drive.... More

Spent a few hours on the lake fishing without much luck. Stopped in at Winjum's to get a cold drink. To our surprise, they had Fried Green Beans on the menu. My wife has been checking the internet for Fried Green Beans at almost every restaurant/bar & grill we see, all without much luck. We ordered the Fried Green Beans... More

We go to Winjum's about once a month with a group of 5 or 6. We've always found Winjum's food and service to be consistently good. They have a Friday-night all-you-can-eat walleye and the portions are extremely generous. They have outdoor seating which overlooks a lake where you can enjoy pleasant days and watch the boats. Just a short drive... More

The food is VERY DELICIOUS and the bacon is the real and good stuff on the burgers, money is well spent here. The fettuccine Alfredo in the picture is also very good with the chicken for $2.00 more but well worth it. Any way very good spot to visit to eat! :-)
