The Walleye Shack

Now back for 2009 frying those walleye in peanut oil at the Methodist Church!

The Original Walleye Shack Restaurant in Valles Mines No ordinary restaurant, feeding the old, the disabled and even the needy, all the while holding down a full time restaurant crowd. Maybe if the food pantry had been in Valles Mines, the restaurant would still be going. Or maybe if the restaurant had stayed in Valles Mines, the food pantry would be feeding people the extra fish. This story's ending is still to be written. In fact, the Walleye Shack was planning to partner with a roadhouse down south to build a new venue on the old chatpile across the road with 3 acres of parking, etc. A proven restaurant location to this day stands empty like a mine no one can figure out how to operate.
