Duluth’s Island Lake Social Scene

This is the second installment of six articles to shine a light on some wonderful establishments on Island Lake and Fish Lake.

Boondocks as it is called today began as a tiny little drive-in by the name of go figure, Island Lake Drive-in.  Over the years, its name changed to Whimpey’s and then Porkey’s.  Today the supper club lounge is owned by Tina Jackson and Jon Foster and is known as Boondocks.  Check out their full offering menu and be sure to try Jon’s fast becoming famous ribs.  You can find them at– bargrillatboondocks.com
