In the Brainerd Lakes Area the Commander Bar & JJ’s Pub are the premier destination for dining and entertainment. Located in beautiful Breezy Point Minnesota, just a short drive from Brainerd, Baxter, Nisswa, and Crosslake, the Commander Bar has been serving area residents and visitors for over 40 years.

Recently renovated with a beautiful new bar and dining area with a more spacious and customer friendly atmosphere, the Commander Bar is set to serve up the area’s best music, events, and dining for another 40 years. Our menu features burgers, sandwiches, pizza, soups, salads, excellent dinners, and we even have lighter fare for those of you with a bit smaller appetites. Many know the Commander Bar as the home of the famous Commander Garbage Pizza! And we’re now open for breakfast at 6:30am seven days a week!

Looking for something to do?  Well then look no further.  Join us every Friday for our very popular meat raffle, Thursdays and Saturdays for bingo featuring a progressive jackpot, Karaoke every Sunday, and of course live music each weekend with a variety of excellent musicians and a large spacious dance floor.

Whether you come for the great ambiance and full menu of excellent food or the live music each weekend, the Commander Bar is sure to keep you coming back for more!  Those wanting a more sports bar feel can simply slip downstairs to JJ’s Pub, which features a large bar, tons of table seating, and ample screens for viewing the game. Be sure to come in for pull tabs and bingo, both of which offer an opportunity to win some great cash prizes.

Watch our site for more information about band schedules and upcoming special events, and stop by the Commander any day or night for great food and fun.  If you’re looking for a great restaurant or high energy nightlife in the Brainerd Lakes Area, the Commander Bar is the place to be!

    We want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season and let you know about what’s coming up over the next couple of weeks. Friday, December 23rd, stop by JJ’s Pub for the meat raffle at 5:30, and party with “Pandemic” at the Commander starting at 9:30. On Saturday December 24th, the Commander will be closing at noon, but JJ’s Pub will be open for the Vikings-Packers game. The kitchen will be open during the game. So come out and cheer on the Vikes during the final game of the season! The Commander and JJ’s will both be closed on Christmas Day (so no karaoke on Sunday night). And make your plans to spend New Year’s Eve at the Commander with “Vintage Raggs”. We’ve got three great dinner specials including Prime Rib, Walleye, or Steak and Lobster, all including dessert, party favors and champagne! Call us at 218-562-4198 for reservations. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
