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!

Looking for something to do?  Well then look no farther.  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 with a large dance floor 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 with a large bar, tons of table seating, and ample screens for viewing the game. Be sure to come in for pull tabs and bingo which offers an opportunity to win some great cash prizes.
