We usually stop here for breakfast a couple times a month and it is always delivered hot and fast,The home made jams-jellies are incredible with the thick toast that is served. The service is always fast and friendly.

We arrived as a group of 11 and the accommodated us at two tables. They can really only put about 6 together comfortably. Our orders ranged from breakfast to pulled pork and all was delicious. The German Potato Pancakes alone would bring me back. The portion sizes are generous and the location at the lock is perfect. I would definitely... More

Go more for the experience of a unique local place than for great food. It's diner food but there is a little train that goes around the ceiling every 15 minutes, the real trains are whizzying right next to the place and you have decent views of the lock and dam. It's a fun tradition for us and therefore it's... More

We ate here during our family vacation. We sat in the screened-in patio overlooking the lock and dam. The service was prompt and friendly. The meals arrived quickly and were very tasty. The portions are sizable and quite filling. The owner cooking in the kitchen was super friendly and waved at everyone and thanked them for coming. This was a... More

Great service, friendly and fast. Coffee always filled. Our group of 6 enjoyed every bite. The wheat toast was excellent. My husband liked the potato pancakes so much he purchased 3 mixes to go. So nice sitting in the screened porch overlooking the lock & dam.

It is a fun place with energetic and friendly waitstaff. I just had an egg and toast. The toast appeared homemade and was delicious. Very reasonable meal at $2. My husband had ribs with hash browns and cole slaw. The ribs had a good smoked flavor but were slightly tough. Overall it was a good meal.

Second visit to Wabasha MN, and we can't wait to get to Pier 4!! From the melt in your mouth pancakes to the fluffy biscuits, you can't go wrong for breakfast. Hearty portions good friendly service and delicious food. They have a 3lb pancake challenge called the Danimal. If you can eat in 30 min or less, your meal is... More

Love the breakfast every time. The eggs were cooked perfectly. The potato pancakes are wonderful - just like my Aunt used to make. The model train can entertain the kids too.

Service is always friendly and the breakfast is always good. So fun to see the train up top go round when there are little ones in the restaurant.
