    I would definitely check out Hell's Kitchen's Walleye BLT. Note: I've never tried it, because I'm addicted to their lemon-ricotta pancakes...

      I had the Walley BLT at HK in Duluth a couple weekends ago. It was fantastic.

      Try Bunnies on Excelsior Blvd.

      Bobbie in MN

        Tavern on Grand always does walleye right.

        Hell's Kitchen seemed a little off the day I had it, but I wouldn't mind going back for the peanut butter alone.

          Axel's- but go to the original in Mendota Heights...

            I've had some very good walleye at FireLake in Mpls downtown-

            In your signature thread I responded to the question. Tavern on Grand is considered the signature place itself for a walleye sandwich, but there are many places that serve a good one. My web site has a good start, but by no ways complete, on showing walleye sandwich presentations in Minnesota.

                Amazing! Great pictures. We're driving to the Cities from Ohio for a wedding later this month and you have given me some great ideas for places to eat. We lived in Saint Louis Park and Excellsior in the past, and I wish I had known about a few of these places back then, if they existed back then. I recognize some of them (Sunsets) so I know some of them were around in the 70's and 80's. Thanks again.

                I'm not sure it would ever qualify as the best, but Culvers makes a mean Walleye sandwich, though I find the tarter sauce really lacking.
