Just left this morning from this resort. Spent 3 days in the fish house with my 5 year old daughter. We had a outstanding stay. Staff and accommodations were great. We will be back again soon for more fishing fun.

We entered this bar and grill for lunch while waiting for our boat tour. We decided on it due to the Trip Advisor sticker on the front window! We were not disappointed! The food was delicious, but beware.....the portions are huge! You will want to share! We were stuffed way before we saw the bottom of our plates! We felt...

We have been here twice. The first time was a fantastic time and the second time was just okay. Toucan's is just like a small town bar and grill with good service, average food and nice view of the lake. Both times there were a couple individuals at the bar that were a little loud. The launch service the first...

The owners are rude people! They have a horrible attitude and don't care about their customers. We went out on the fishing launch. The launch captain didn't care that we weren't catching any fish. He moved fishing spots one time during the entire 4 hour trip. All we caught were a few finger sized walleyes. He didn't care. The restaurant...

Recently visited the wharf. Great setting with a beautiful view of Mille Lacs Lake. Great atmosphere. Had great food and even better service!! Jenny was amazing! To bad more places around the lake don't have staff like her. I will definitely be back!

Booked a 4 hr charter fishing and came back empty handed. There was 20 of us and we tried 3 spots not very far from the place. Once we docked, the captain & bait boy took off in their trucks. In it for the quick bucks. Worst charter fishing experience ever.

This resort is a really great place to ice fish in winter or boat in the summer. Everything you need for the day or for an extended stay. We headed out on their huge launch with our family, loved it. The restaurant was a favorite spot but the sunsets are also the best.

“Find a different resort. The "motel" consists of four rooms in a building in the back of a gravel parking lot full of ice shacks and trailers. There is no view of the lake from the "motel", and its about a mile away from Toucans restaurant and bar.”
