Good meal there with friends. Great view even tho no place for us to sit outside. We have always liked this restaurant and excited about their new restaurant in Nisswa, MN right down the street!

This is one of our absolute favorites. The location with the view of the lake and patio seating is wonderful. We love the food. You won't find better or friendlier service anywhere.

They could accommodate that many people, but you definitely need to make sure they know when you are coming and the exact time. They get very busy, and as for cake, just call and talk with them. They are great at service.

No, I don't even think they take reservations - try going a bit on the early side so you can have lunch outside on their patio!! Enjoy your stop at Ernie's - probably one of the choice stops in Brainerd.
