Dinner between MSP and Brainerd

My boyfriend and I are driving tonight from Minneapolis to Brainerd, probably leaving 4:30ish. We need to eat dinner at some point. Ideas?

I have scoured the boards and haven't found a lot of suggestions, particularly for St. Cloud. We'd like something chowish and/or fairly nice where we might see a vegetable. We can drive to St. Cloud and *then* go north, or we can take 101 toward Mille Lacs lake. We'll pick a route based on chow possibilities.

If anyone has lunch-y or snack places to stop on the way back on Sunday, send those our way, too.
