Fun place and fun food.

I like the fireplaces in the bar and eating areas and the fun food. Drinks were a little too expensive. Food is a better value than drinks.

Great ambiance, always lots of people enjoying themselves here. Good food and service, great beer selection. This is the best place to go In downtown White Bear Lake area, no matter your situation. Want drinks with friends for happy hour? A cool, unique place to take out--of-town visitors? A night out with your sweety? A place to bump into neighbors?... More

The service can be a hit or miss there. The food is always great but sometimes doesn't seem worth what you are paying for. they do have great flavored bloodies and an awesome patio.

Good food and efficient service on a crowded Sunday. If weather permits, there is a large seating and eating area outside the restaurant.

This is a great restaurant. The food was excellent, the menu varied and the prices were fair. The wait staff were most helpful and attentive.

Sit outside and enjoy the small town atmosphere of White Bear Lake. Delicious food with quality ingredients, good service. Full bar with a great variety of beers and beverages.

Been several times and have enjoyed. It's a great location and set up. Good burger and fries. I really liked the Portabella mushroom burger. Wraps are adequate. It's not my favorite but likeable.

I enjoyed my meal. I decided not to eat outside because I hate sharing my meal with bees. I had a burger and it was quite good. French fries were good. Inside bar is lacking in personality.

Just not my favorite place to go in White Bear Lake. Food is OK, if you like bar food. Choices for low-cal are minimal. But if you like deep fired foods, burgers, and fries and are a fan of specialty beers, then this is the place for you.
