Restaurant & Bar
It was 1933, Prohibition was over and it was time to have some fun in Crosslake. Carl Holt built and opened the original dance hall and a few rental cabins known as the Moonlite Bay Resort. Moonlite has seen many changes over the years and it has all gone up in smoke a couple times, but the spirit of Moonlite Bay never seemed to change. We have always been and continue to be a place for good times and fun by the lake. With 70 boat slips and snowmobile trails coming from 4 different directions, getting here is never a problem. In 2021 we added Pub '33, a seperate dining space upstairs, it has been described as 'Moonlite Bay just slightly elevated". Come check it out during the summer Thursday & Friday at 4pm and Saturday & Sunday at noon.
We are more than just a restaurant & bar. We love the community that we are in, whether it’s the Ice Tee Open to benefit Camp Knutson, planning Winterfest weekend or working with the PAL foundation on many different improvements in Crosslake, we always seem to find a fun way to support the “Beauty spot of Minnesota”
So when you’re ready to break away from it all and blow off a little steam, make it Moonlite Bay, a place where good friends meet and old friends reunite. The place to be since ’33.
