As ever the best steaks in town!
“Great to have Irma’s Kitchen open for the season. Checked out the newly remodeled lounge last night, nice modern rustic feel and new deck. We enjoyed some live music, as ever the best steaks in town. A mix of favorites and new items on the menu. If you eat nothing else have the crispy pork belly and scallops social plate, wow, served on blue corn grits, I discovered I can love grits, who knew? Great food, relaxed vibe, we’ll be back, if you love food this is where you should be eating.”

The Resort Was Perfect
“Just want to send a note of THANK YOU!!! I’m still hearing from family about how much fun they had and how wonderful Cragun’s was. Here are some of the comments: “The resort was perfect, plenty to do, big rooms, good food, and on a great lake.” “I got 3 hours of complaining how they “didn’t want to leave Minnesota” on the drive back to the Twin Cities”. “I’m now hearing talk amongst the Charlton “grapevine” that we’ve found “The Reunion Place” and that a return trip makes a lot of sense in 2-3 years.” “What an amazing vacation we had! I went to work and told everybody who even slightly inquired how MN was and told them what a terrific time we all had! Nobody could believe it! I think they all thought I would come back looking like a giant mosquito bite!” Again, thank you so much for your help and even putting up with me. I get the impression we’ll be back.”
Dick Lafean, MN June 12, 2015
Activities Were Fantastic
“Activities were fantastic – ice bowling, kitty cat snowmobiles, trolley rides. The New Year’s Eve party in the Sports Centre was so much fun! We stayed there all night with the kiddos and they loved it! We visit Cragun’s every year over 4th of July, but this was our first winter trip. Loved it! Thank you!“
