If you don't want to cook for yourself in Two Harbors, Doug's is pretty much your only option. Luckily, it's a pretty laid back and tasty spot, located right in the tiny heart of town. The atmosphere is friendly and cozy, and the bar is full of chummy locals (where else are they gonna go?). In addition to the indoor restaurant and bar, Doug's has a large outdoor patio overlooking the main courtayrd of Two Harbors, with a bar (specifically open for 2pm-5pm happy hour) and free, unlimited wifi. Inside, tables are piled high with meat and seafood dishes such as clam chowder, buffalo burgers and grilled halibut with garlic mashed potatoes. Just make sure to save room for a glass of buffalo milk, the island's signature (and stiff) drink made from creme de cacao, Kahlua, vodka, cream, banana, nutmeg and chocolate syrup, and topped with whipped cream, of course. They're stronger than you think, but if you get a little buzzed, not to worry—you'll fit right in with the locals.
