Had dinner on the patio on a beautiful summer evening. There was live music which was actually pretty good! The ambiance was very nice - laid back but still good. Decent wine list so we ordered a bottle. The good was so/so. Ordered a shrimp in vodka sauce. Had to order extra shrimp (it only came with a few) and... More

If only the service was as good as everything else. Several wait staff came by in the 15 minutes we stood waiting for the to clear one of the half dozen empty tables on the patio with only: "we are busy. Hang on." Two other couples waiting eventually left, but there is little competition in tiny Afton. And food took... More

The Sail Away Cafe is a family-owned business located in the St. Croix River Valley between Minnesota and Wisconsin. The food is terrific and served in perfectly sized portions. Great pizza, pasta dishes, burgers and other dinner entrees. The daily specials are wonderful surprises. Try one of the ever changing menu of soups - you won't be disappointed. There is... More

This is always a stop on the serious road-bike ride that is Afton. Afton is on the St. Croix, a long hill down (and up) from the surrounding suburbs and country-side. So the place is always home to a few serious roadies in Lycra, loud shirts, and louder shoes. I learned that the trick is to eat light, or you... More

I love the burgers here. Made with fresh locally raised beef,you can really tell the difference. My Mom loves the homemade soups and the homemade desserts are to die for.

The food is great, service... well sometimes not too good. Breakfast is my favorite, the place is large enough to have a good crowd and small enough to feel like breakfast at home, only someone else cooks and cleans up. When I stop for lunch I usually find a bowl of something familiar with a little exotic twist. Dinners, hearty... More

The Sail Away Cafe is a charming little place on the banks of the Saint Croix river. The food tends toward eclectic home cooking, never boring. I particularly enjoy the Mediterranean pizza and the Bison steak. It is family friendly and you can get decent beer or wine should you desire. All this and live music on the weekends.

This is a cute restaurant on the main drag of Afton, MN. We like to stop here for lunch now and then. I usually get the Buffalo Chicken sandwich and my friend likes the crab cake salad. Service is usually slow for some reason and it isn't really that big of a restaurant. There is a wine list with a... More

We stopped by here on a sunny afternoon hoping to get a quick bite. Unfortunately it took 15 minutes just before the waitress even took our order and then waited another 35 for just a couple of veggie sandwiches. One sandwich was ordered without cheese and came with cheese anyway and the waitress took it back only to return the... More

This is a locally owned and run restaurant with unique locally sourced menu items, some organic and vegetarian. Fri & Sat evenings local musicians entertain you while you fine. Wine & beer available too.
