Catering Inquiry






Tally’s Dockside is a landmark that dates back to 1939 and the resort era of White Bear Lake.
In 1990, Keith and Jan became Tally’s current and longest owner and changed the name to Tally’s Dockside. Tally’s is still a quaint and charming paradise! A casual atmosphere and so much character – “Paradise Found”, Keith says. In 2008, our dream to provide food became a reality. We opened C.G. Hooks Eatery, serving premium “in-house, slow-smoked” Bar-B-Que specializing in pulled pork, ribs and beef brisket, the Ole Timey Memphis way. We take pride striving for excellence and consistency in our scratch kitchen, providing superior tenderness and natural juiciness. We don’t believe in short cuts.

Our mission is to help all visitors to Tally’s Dockside & CG Hooks Eatery to “Take in the Splendor of White Bear Lake and enjoy the Boathouse, BBQ Restaurant, Marina and Pub. Life here is “Spagnanamous”. Location: 4441 Lake Avenue South White Bear Lake, Minnesota 651-493-6763
