A friend and I stayed in Walker overnight and found this restaurant by accident. What a lovely surprise! The food was really, really good with unique selections. Service was excellent. I will definitely return on my next visit to the Walker area!

The atmosphere is relaxing with large windows all around this restaurant in the woods, just outside of Walker, Minnesota. Owners are a chef and his wife and it shows in their caring attitude and persistent quality. No big chain restaurant here, but a fine steakhouse and seafood restaurant from times past.

I have eaten dinner here a half a dozen times and have never been disappointed. Surprisingly intricate dishes for a small town restaurant.

The Boulders have a very clean restaurant and have hired very good help! The staff is friendly and always seem happy to see you. Great drinks and wonderful menu. Did not have room for the desert list but would have loved to try it.

Boulders is a great place to go if you want something a little fancier! Great martini list and excellent menu. Definitely recommend one of the steaks they are done perfectly. Our table also has the crab and artichoke dip as an appetizer which was delicious. I would also recommend a reservation. It's a small restaurant so chances are if you... More

The selection of menu items will never disappoint and each will be well prepared and oh so tasty. The wonderful bread with oil and Parmesan, the fresh, crisp salads followed by beautifully presented entrees. Full bar, well executed and nice wine selection.
