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, 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!

The Latest

  • Another Shutdown….

    Join us for Commander Bar Bingo tonight at 6:30pm. The jackpot is $700 in 52 numbers or less. This will be the last bingo for a few weeks so we hope to see you here! As most of you know, the latest restrictions set to go into effect Friday require that we close to indoor dining at least until Dec. 18th. So, we’ll be open until 10pm on Friday, and we will have takeout only available Saturday and Sunday from noon to 8pm. (Our menu is available on the button to the right) We may continue that into early next week depending on inventory, but we will definitely be closed completely from Thanksgiving through December 18th. We will keep you posted with further updates as we go. Thanks again for your support!

  • Notice to Our Customers

    Due to the new restrictions announced by the Governor this week regarding no bar seating and further reduced occupant capacity, starting this weekend we will not have live music at JJ’s Pub on Saturday nights for the next several weeks. We’re also required to close at 10pm every night (but we’ll still be here every morning bright and early at 6:30am for breakfast!). We’ll be sure to keep you posted as things change, and we thank you for hanging in there with us!

  • Commander Bar Bingo is Back!

    Great news — Commander Bar Bingo is starting again on Thursday, October 29th! The jackpot will be at $500 in 52 numbers or less, and there will be limited seating so get your spot early. Bingo starts at 6:30pm. Come out for some fun and support the Pelican Lakes Conservation Club!
