I’m just going to apologize in advance if you haven’t had lunch yet, Shop Local took a bit of a turn to Eat Local today. Not a big surprise, if you’ve been to Emmetsburg you know we love our food. Read on for some of the best food and services you’ll find anywhere, right here.
And if you missed last week’s #shopemmetsburg post, check it out here.
Dublin’s Fine Food and Spirits
I worked at Dublin’s in high school and could wax poetic over their hand crafted food for hours. In fact, I do here. Nicole and Sherri serve up the most amazing meals and have an incredible wine and beer selection. Wondering what to try? My favorites include the Grilled Teriyaki Flank Steak, Smoked Pork Loin Sandwich, Chicken Marsala and of course, Buffalo Wings with blue cheese dressing (it’s all about the sauce).
Your Family Bakery
In college, my roommate and I brought a dozen Nutty Fries (cinnamon fried goodness, topped with maple frosting and finely ground walnuts) back to our neighbors stating, “You HAVE to try these, you can feel that fat coating your tongue when you eat them!” It’s probably not the most eloquent description and needless to say the guys next door were skeptical, but one bite changed everything, as it does for all of us. Your family is located at 2213 Main St in Emmetsburg and are open 6-2, Tuesday- Friday and 6-12 on Saturdays.
For Reelz Videography
Owner and videographer, Faith Kennedy opened For Reelz after working with the local Chamber and sports teams to produce highlight videos. She now specializes in wedding, sports and family events and can also set all of your cherished photos to music, creating unique gifts for loved ones. For Reelz is one of the only professional videography services with 100 mile radius of Emmetsburg and has extremely competitive prices. You can find For Reelz on Facebook and be sure to check out this recent review from a happy customer:
“Faith was great to work with for our wedding.. Very responsive to all of my requests and had our video put together within the next week.
She went above and beyond throughout our wedding day while being very reasonable for price.”
Five Island Spa Co.
So, yeah, this is my business, but I’m not even going to pretend to be gracious about it 🙂 I’m so excited and honored that our customers chose to add Five Island Spa Co. to their list of favorite local businesses! What sets us apart? Well, we are the only massage practice in the area who has multiple therapists in one location, so we’re able to get you in quickly. Our therapists are incredibly skilled (I can say that because I hired them), and we have amazing customer service. Check out our website at www.fiveislandspaco.com for more information on our great products and services, you can also schedule online or purchase gift certificates right from our site!
St. Pat’s Irish Gifts
“St. Pat’s always has an amazing inventory for gifts!” If you are looking for anything Irish, St. Pat’s Association Irish Gift Shop has it, blarney included. All sales proceeds from this store go towards promoting Emmetsburg’s Irish Heritage and funding the annual St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Check out their great selection of Irish gear, jewelry, home decor and more on Facebook here: St. Pat’s Association
E-Pride Office Products
E-Pride happens to be right across the street from me, so needless to say, they’ve saved me about 1000 times since I started Five Island Spa Co. From pens to ink to office furniture, this store has everything you need for a well run business. Best of all- if they don’t have what you are looking for, it can be ordered for the delivery the very next day. Twice as fast as Amazon Prime for anyone who is counting. And more than once those items have been hand delivered to my desk by one of E-Pride’s incredible employees. You know, because I’m far too busy and important to walk across the street 😉 You can even order your products online here: E-Pride
Cheveux Salon and Spa
How do I love thee Cheveux? Let me count the ways: The incredibly friendly, funny and talented staff, the gorgeous space, Aveda products and rewards, reminder calls because I forget everything, all of the time. The staff at Cheveux always takes the time to insure that you get the exact services and products you need to look and feel amazing. It’s my feel good place.

If you are lucky enough to live next to a Pizza Ranch, you’re lucky enough. Consider this quote from my friend Jamie on moving to Emmetsburg from the Chicago area suburbs and then get your butt down to “The Ranch” for the best buffet of pizza, chicken, potatoes, salad bar and dessert you’ve ever seen, with consistently wonderful service.
“Our first night in town after our move, we took the kids to Pizza Ranch.
Lauren looked right at us mid-chew and said, “This is the BEST place ever”. We knew we were “home”.”
The Shores @ Five Island
It’s worth a stop by for the incredible view, not to mention the Bloody Mary’s. I love the craft beer selection and they have a variety of Moscow Mules to choose from- walk or boat on up, grab a beverage and enjoy Five Island Lake!
Slashpoint Computer Service and Sales
What is the most unexpected thing for customers about Slashpoint? Owner Ryan Berkland states that many people are surprised to find out that Slashpoint offers pricing competitve to the “big box” stores. The great thing about locally owned businesses like Slashpoint is that they don’t have the overhead of a huge, expensive building or corporate marketing, and you’ll always get personalized service before and after the sale. Slashpoint carries printers, computers, laptops, paper and ink, visit them at 3104 Main St or call 712.852.8100 for more information.
