Love Chet's and always make sure to get my fix when I'm in the area. Family owned, cabin feel on a lake. It's old school but that's the charm. Bartenders make great cocktails and the salad bar is fabulous. Don't miss Chet's if you're in Alex or surrounding area's of Alex.
Few meals conjure up more anticipation for this foodie than an annual trek to Chet's Lakeside Inn in the lake country of Northern Minnesota. It is like Chet's got stuck in a time warp...maybe in the 1950s...serving up some of the best Swedish-style chicken anywhere this side of Stockholm. Tonight I ordered the half chicken - all white meat - broiled - with a baked potato and a bottle of Minnesota-brewed Grain Belt beer. Life is good at Chet's of Parker's Prairie, Minnesota. Chet's earns a nickel all day long.
Usually I have had good experiences with the restaurant, but not tonight. I asked the waitress about the BBQ chicken sandwich and she said it was pulled chicken mixed in barbecue. Wrong. It was CHILI SAUCE!! Absolutely terrible, I could not even eat it. And the waitress did not check on us once, we had to get up and find her for the bill.
