As much as we love golfing, there’s nothing quite like eating great food after a long day out on the course. Whether you’re looking for a pub, a steakhouse, or just a quick bite to eat, there’s a restaurant in the Minneapolis area that is sure to be a palate-pleaser. Here are some of the best restaurants in Minneapolis that are close to the course:
Edina: If you’re playing a round or two at Braemar Golf Club, there’s no better way to end the day than at the Tin Fish in Braemar Park. After becoming a Minnesota staple at Lake Calhoun, the Tin Fish added a second location in Edina. Be prepared for the best fish tacos you’ll find in the state.
Chaska: You’ll find Oak 19 Fare and Refreshment waiting for you at the end of a round at Chaska Town Course, where you’ll discover something great on the menu for everyone. If you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to check out the Crooked Pint Ale House, too – located in the Chaska Curling & Event Center. You can watch live curling while drinking a Minnesota-made craft beer.
Shakopee: Not far from Chaska, you’ll find Stonebrooke Golf Club in Shakopee. Stonebrooke’s Restaurant and Lounge area alone are worth the visit – not only do they have a great menu, but the atmosphere is fantastic. Don’t forget to stop by the fire pit that overlooks the 10th and 18th fairways, and be sure to check the live music schedule for an experience you won’t forget.
Brooklyn Park: If you’re spending the day at Edinburgh U.S.A, be sure to stop at the Girvan Grille. You’ll overlook the beautiful championship course while enjoying anything from Buffalo chicken wings to a classic Minnesota walleye dinner.
Woodbury: After a round at Prestwick Golf Club, you can swing by the Osteria at Prestwick for fresh, local food and unique drinks. You’ll find another Minnesota experience at The Tavern Grill Restaurant and Bar – known by the locals for their build-your-own burgers, salads, and pizzas.
Maple Grove: We’re big fans of the Highlander pub at Rush Creek Golf Club – you can’t go wrong with classic pub fare. Looking for something more fancy? Book a table at Pittsburgh Blue Steakhouse – you can thank us later.
It wouldn’t be a trip to Minneapolis without making a trip downtown. Manny’s and Murray’s are classic downtown steakhouses, but we’d also recommend checking out Spoon and Stable. If you happen to be a craft beer aficionado (or just love great food), you can’t miss the Surly Brewing Beer Hall.
