We had breakfast here and it was superb. We stuck to the basics but everything just better. Given your choice of meat - go with the ham!!! This is also a smokehouse and the ham was incredible. Somehow the hashbrowns and even the toast/ homemade jams were just great. Don't miss Pier 4. Oh, and then go stand on the... More

The breakfast food was great! The waitstaff was courteous and attentive. The prices are very affordable and the portions were large. On the way out you can purchase some of their homemade seasonings such as Rib Rub. Overall a great value! Thanks, WE WILL BE BACK!!!

My wife wanted to go to an Art Fair around Pepin & Stockholm, WI. We drove up the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River from Winona to Alma and stopped to dine at the Pier 4 Cafe. This restaurant is right on the edge of the Mississippi River and offers some great views of the Lock & Dam. My wife... More

Went for breakfast the other day and it was outstanding. The omelet I had was a garden variety and it was LOADED with goodness. The service was great and the scenery was fantastic.

We spent a few delightful days on the Great River Road in Wisconsin in October. By far the best breakfast on the trip was at Pier 4. First of all, it's a charming little place, full of small-town atmosphere, with a nice view of the Mississippi and a train track feet away where huge freight trains pass by frequently. Strangely...

We ate at this restaurant during our girls weekend. What a great place, the young people that waited on us were attentive nice and fun! We stayed at Alma Home Style Lodging which was a really great place also. We will definitely be back to Alma next year.

My mom & I stopped here for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated immediately on the screened-in porch which has a wonderful view of the River and the lock and dam. After being seated, we waited, and waited and waited for our server to take our order. I finally had to flag him down to let... More

We lived in this area many years ago, so we couldn't resist sitting by the river, the locks, and the railroad tracks. The food and friendly staff added to the experience. I had the special which was a chicken salad sandwich and chicken noodle soup, and my husband had a hamburger. Both were good, and we appreciated that they serve... More

Open only til 2pm but serves breakfast right through and the omelette I had was suberb and HUGE! Potato pancakes and French toast looked incredible too. Well rounded menu for lunch too including ribs, which seemed out of place but looked good too. Laid back friendly service (our waitress looked like she was in her pajamas but still cute), kept...
