Dining on Leech Lake at The 502
Welcome to the 502! We don’t take reservations so just come on down and let us find you the perfect spot either bar side or restaurant side. What could be better? Lakeside dining overlooking the shore of Leech Lake, which offers spectacular views along with patio dining right at the water’s edge. Exciting menu entrees have been created especially for this time of year. Enjoy the view, the food, and the camaraderie. Our chef will delight your taste buds for dinner and entice you for dessert. Our Mixologists will dazzle you with a full line up of specialty elixirs and our staff is excited to serve you. Whether you’re looking for a night out to watch the game, or for a fine dining experience like no other, the 502 can meet your needs!
The 502 Restaurant side has an open kitchen that let’s you see and smell the wonderful dishes that are being prepared by our chef, helping you( or making it more difficult ) decide what option is the best to dazzle your tastebuds. Enjoy an elegant dining experience, while you look out onto Leech Lake. Our dining room windows take up over half of outlying wall space, giving you the best view of the lake regardless of the season. Looking to get even closer? During warmer weather we open up our patio dining, allow you to dine within feet of the lake.
Our full service bar is ready for your next outting. With bar, high-top, and table seating we’ve got the perfect space for any size group. We’ve also got a fantastic casual lounge area for you to sit and catch up with friends and family. Our bar offers all of the items on the restaurant menu, so the food will let you enjoy all of the deliciousness of luxury restaurant, while taking it easy watching one of our big screen LCD TV’s!
