Irma's Kitchen

A Gull Lake Restaurant with a Taste of Tradition

Located at the southern end of Cragun's Resort, Irma's Kitchen celebrates a tradition of good cooking and scratch-made food.  Housed in the historic Hungry Gull Restaurant, originally built by Walter and Lena Frampton in 1926, where Lena cooked three hearty meals a day, lumberjack style. In 1946, Ben and Eleanor Curry became the new owners and expanded the restaurant. The property changed hands several times until 1988 when Dutch and Irma Cragun purchased it. Even today, Irma's Kitchen maintains its rustic style log cabin feel, serving delicious house-made cuisine in a cozy ambiance with picturesque views of Gull Lake.
