We were in the area for a couple of nights. The Commander was the only place near us to have breakfast. Two breakfasts and one dinner. Morning 1. Homemade? corned beef hash and eggs. The corned beef was waved over the top of the soggy potato hash. No flavor except for salt. The hash probably was made in big batches... More

Great breakfast and friendly staff! Stopped at night for a drink and went back in the morning at the bartenders recommendation. He wasn't wrong!

We couldn’t stomach the idea of another breakfast at the unimpressive Marina II buffet at Breezy Point, so opted to try the Commander restaurant just outside the resort. When we walked in, the place looked like a typical darkish bar so we didn’t have very high expectations for the food. And our server’s demeanor and slow response to requests didn’t... More

Friendly service but the food took quite awhile. I ordered the biscuits and gravy which was good but not overly impressed. Prices were fair and portions large.

I was impressed with the beer selection for a smaller place. I had their beef and mushroom sandwich and it was very good. We didn't try the pizza but would like to as it looked very good. The service was friendly as well.

We stopped at the Commander for their Friday night dinner special. You get a full rack of large pork ribs for $14.95 or a half rack for $11.95. The meal comes with fries & coleslaw. The full rack is too much to eat (for us) but we had delicious leftovers all weekend. There is a full menu & bar so... More

Nice local spot on the edge of the Breezy Point Resort complex. Live music on the weekends and the pizza was great. JJ's is downstairs and they had a 2 man band as well. Check it out when in the area.

Usually stop At Pestellos when in the Pequot Lakes area but that is now closed and going Mexican. We decided to go back and try the Commander in Breezy Point. This experience was much better from the wait staff to the meal. I liked the Walleye served at Pestellos and was a big reason I went there. I tried the... More

This place used to be SO much better, The pizza crust was handmade, fresher ingredients, but not anymore. The Garbage Pizza was the best pizza I had ever had. Not anymore. The sandwiches and burgers are ok. They do offer breakfast all week long, but I haven't tried it. This place is average. HOWEVER! If during the summer you might... More

The Commander is known for great pizza and chicken. I used to only "take out" because of the old bar atmosphere. Since they've remodeled its new, clean and smells fresh. And their booths are roomy and new.
