AJ’s Walleye Lodge unveils new restaurant project

LAKE GOGEBIC — AJ’s Walleye Lodge in the Lake Gogebic area announced that they recently broke ground on a new expansion project which will include a lakefront bar and grill scheduled to open late 2019.

AJ’s Bar & Grill is going to be a new facility, but will also preserve some local area history as the bar will use the former back bar from the Crossing Inn in Wakefield which closed last year.

Jim, Mary Beth and Anthony Eismueller purchased the Walleye Lodge in 2012 and have been consistently upgrading the property since that time.

A liquor license was purchased in 2014 and is currently in escrow waiting for a suitable venue.

“We feel this restaurant will enhance the experience we deliver to our guests and create another reason for tourists to want to visit and want to return,” Mary Beth DeFazio said in a press release.

The project is expected to create seven new jobs at the resort, four of which are projected to be full-time positions.

AJ’s Walleye Lodge is located at 35131 M-29, Lake Gogebic, Michigan.
