Went there with my boyfriend for breakfast. He got the brisket breakfast it was dried out and flavorless. I got a large breakfast as well and it was terrible. We are new to the area and will never go there again. If you want a good breakfast go to Kenny's oak grill!

The green beans with my meal were gross, they tasted sour and had a funny smell as well. The waitress brought me new ones but they were exactly the same. The other two... More

Had many wonderful meals here. The food and service were great. The portions were just the right amount to make sure you didn't walk out hungry, so we ate here multiple times that trip.

The service here is fantastic. The servers feel like you have known them forever. We were fortunate enough to meet the manager, he is hands on and very attentive to the customer. We never miss the chance to eat here when we are in town.

My wife and I both had the all you can eat fish. We were very pleased with our meals. The fish tasted fresh and very good. The salad's were nice and crisp. Fries were great, and the pie for desert was fabulous. That's the best word I can think of at the moment to describe it. Really, it was very,... More

We stopped in on a Wednesday night. I ordered chicken and asparagus. It was very good. My husband ordered fish and chips,mint was outstanding! A real Minnesota fish fry! Crunchy and delicious! We splurged on a piece of pie too. It was good.
