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 serves up 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!
