Three of us went there for dinner and the food was pretty good, but the seduces was terrible. We had to go walk to the bar to put our order in. We waited 30 minutes for someone to come over and then we were sick and tired of waiting.

Food was okay, server seemed a little disinterested at times. They were out of lemons the day we were there. Salad bar was typical for the Midwest - iceberg lettuce and just 2 or 3 dressing options.

My husband and I stopped one aftenoon after fishing at a local lake. We were greeted nicely by our server, who was also working the bar, but did give us prompt service. We both ordered bacon cheeseburgers & waffle fries. While waiting for our food the owner stopped by our table and introduced himself, he was very friendly. Our food... More

We held a baby shower at the Pine Inn because there aren't many choices around Aitkin. What a lucky thing that was! The owner worked with us to create a lovely fried chicken dinner buffet - salad, homemade rolls, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, even fresh green beans. The staff was charming & helpful, the food was delicious, and 'a... More

We ordered beer and menus. We both decided on the special, Chicken and Ribs with salad bar for $12.95. The chicken was tender and juicy with... More

The Pine Inn is located south of Aitkin along Hwy 47. It's actually in Glen but nobody but locals knows where Glen is. You can miss it if you drive fast because the road is heavily wooded. The place has been around for decades and it packs a regular crowd of locals and cabin dwellers. You can tell what season... More

My family and friends have been coming here for years. Now that I have a child of my own, we still dine here. No fancy bells and whistles. Great food, friendly people. Soups are awesome; as are the burgers and pours from the bar. We always say we are going to try somewhere else but always end up at the... More

I liked their small steak and the salad bar. Bar was extremly busy the day I was there with some cycle friends. Food for everyone was good and they ordered variety. Salad bar was good but could be better stocked. The one knock is that tables very close together and the dining room is a zoo with tables way too... More

I looked online for a place to meet our friends for a nice dinner. We decided this would be a half way point for both couples to drive. So after driving a little over an hour, we arrived. It is not a fancy place but has a bar in front and a nice big dining area in back that was... More

Actually, in smaller than Aitkin town, of GLEN MN. Good and varied menu (like the salad bar). Nice daily specials. Staff is pleasant and helpful whether you are a 'local' of a new visitor
