Who are we?  Two Wadena grown brothers passionate about the food we make and drinks we pour.  Previously in Bemidji, MN, at The Green Mill where the older brother was the General Manager and the younger was the Bar Manager. We are a full service bar and restaurant with great mixed drink options, many bottled beer selections, local tap beer, and a wide variety of food items including our ever so popular burger creations.  We have a separate dining and lounge/bar seating, and we have a private back banquet room used for larger reservations.  We seat roughly forty-five in the dining, forty-five in the lounge/bar, and the banquet room can seat thirty to thirty-five. What do we do?  We love what we do here and pride ourselves on the service we give to customers, the consistency and quality of our food, the speed at which you receive your order, and the welcoming environment we work in.  We truly are grateful to be here in Wadena and want only the best experience for anyone that stops in to our restaurant. To ensure your time here is and was the best it could be, we ask a few things: please be patient as we want the best experience for you just as you want it for yourself, email us at with any issues or questions you may have about your visit, about our restaurant, or anything in between, and please review us on our Facebook page or TripAdvisor for a chance to win a gift card.
