Bayburgers offers lakeside lunch

Lindey's Bayburgers recently opened for lunch on the shores of Seeley Lake at Lindey's Landing West. Bayburgers, hot dogs, nachos, soda and bags of ice are available at the new facility operated by Mark Lindemer, who is assisted by employee Shauna Haines, and Mark's parents Margie and Lindey.

The Bayburger Wagon is a one-of-a-kind restaurant on wheels that serves food, soft drinks and ice from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. Visitors can arrive by land, sea or air, Lindey chuckles. There are several picnic tables and chairs available for seating.

The idea for the Bayburger Wagon, and the concept of lakeside dining, came about because of the numerous family picnics held near Lindey's Steakhouse. "This is something we kind of wanted to share with other people," Lindey said recently. Lindey's Bayburgers and Lindey's Prime Steak House will be open throughout the summer season.
