Dairy Queen

As Gayle says, when we come back to the Midwest, we have to go to Dairy Queen. And since we had already visited the one in Spirit Lake, our taste buds led us here. This DQ had a little more local colour. We were served by "biker gal", who then handed us off as she transitioned to the drive through window. Gayle and my son had their usual (chocolate dipped cone and butterscotch sundae respectively), while I spread my wings with an Oreo and cookie dough blizzard. Once fueled and refreshed, we headed off to our next stop - clothes shopping at 3 Sons!

Perkins Restaurant & Bakery

Reviews:
Long waits to be seated as the host tells every single party "about 15 minutes." Then long waits for food. Flighty server presence for refills and such. And perhaps it's just me but not only have prices gone up in recent years but the food quality (at least breakfast items) seems to have declined. My hungry man's breakfast platter had rather unique mini-sausages and paper thin bacon. Overall disappointing experience after expecting something special from previous visits to the family restaurant.
Perkins is located at the intersection of Highways 71 and 86 and near the site of the now defunct Boji Bay. There's also a half-empty strip mall to the South that indicates some economic challenges in this North Milford area. I've had breakfast here once with the family, and for a Perkins, it's pretty much what you expect. The food is decent and in good quantities, service is Midwest friendly, the place is clean, and they run good specials. At the same time, I'm partial to the "Mom and Pop" place and will seek them out first.
Food was what you'd expect of Perkins but someone at our table got a very lipstick stained coffee mug. Not a huge deal but the waitress took the cup (no apology or comment) and asked if we were ready to order. She was politely asked if she could bring the clean mug first. She looked very put out then turned to another table and took their order. She did, of course eventually bring the cup and take our order...

Reviews:
Very unique space, we loved the venue! Unfortunately the staff is terrible at communication and organizing, that is our warning. I would recommend this space for a wedding but if you can get out of planning the wedding with the pavilion staff and hiring your own wedding planner I would definitely go that route. We were very disappointed in the service and food and how most of our requests were not met for the price we paid. Also beware: our initial food tasting was fantastic, the food that was served to our guests was much lower quality. You are paying for the unique venue space, the staff didn't seem to know what they are doing when it came to the night of the wedding.
After being seated, we waited 15 mins. and were not acknowledged. No water, no menus, nothing. They're very understaffed. We gave up and went elsewhere.
At the corner of State Highway 86 and US 71 lies a patch of land that once contained a water park by the Boji Bay name. I went years ago with my step-daughter. It was fun splashing around, but it was a bit of a bake in the wide open space. This version of water world didn't make it and now the property is being re-imagined into another type of tourist destination. I walked in last week because I wanted to see the old Fun House attractions. The Slide, Barrell, and Sugar Bowl looked great, and busy open restaurant and bar looked inviting. I also saw a newspaper ad about a future hockey rink and with the unused space (both inside and out), it looks like this is part of a larger master plan. Let's hope that their hospitality service model works itself through to profitability and towards being a valued community resource.
