The Manitou’s Walleye

By Anna Faller | April 29, 2023

Spring has officially sprung, and that means The Manitou is open for business. Established in 1979, this seasonal hot spot in Honor is known for cozy vibes and rustic fine dining, headlined by its popular selection of fresh walleye. Sourced locally from Big Stone Bay Fishery, this regular feature is offered several ways—including broiled or beer-battered and fried—but our go-to is the simple sauté. Each eight-to-ten-ounce filet is griddled in butter and garlic until golden and served with your choice of potato side (get the au gratin and thank us later) or rotating veggies, as well as a cup of soup or side salad. Pair it with a Sleeping Bear cocktail—that’s Iron Fish gin with honey and lemon—rinse, and repeat until the next snowfall. Grab a plate for $33.95 at The Manitou Restaurant in Honor (4349 N. Scenic Hwy). Reservations are optional, but recommended. (231) 882-4761,
