Expensive and worth it. Experienced, friendly service. Gluten free bread offered. Only problem was the night we dined, their two private dining rooms were both occupied, so our food wait was long. They tempered that by offering bread.

The food is much better than the atmosphere suggests. Looks like an upscale Perkins but the food is of good quality, prices reasonable to high for what it is and service was friendly. They have a lot of gluten free items marked on the regular menu (hurray!). However, a celiac in our group ordered the clearly marked gluten free fish... More

I had the cranberry chicken salad for lunch and it was perfect, just the right size with all the great flavors. Love to see that they got the decor back to the original look. It looks great, less is more!

The wait staff was very informed on the details of the menu. One major thing I noticed was the hustle of the staff. They moved with haste and served the guest to their best ability. This must be a sign of exceptional leadership as all of the staff was very impressive. Fresh Local food that tasted great. The best Walleye... More

Some booths and tables. We were sat at a table and asked if we were fine with that and we were.... More

In Brainerd for business and this spot was recommended by the hotel and by another hotel guest. I ordered the lobster tacos for appetizer. So good and very rich. I ordered the Cuban sandwich as an entree and the portion was very big. One of the best cubans I have ever had. The wine selection was pretty good too, I... More

We stopped in yesterday for lunch after taking a day trip to Brainerd. We've eaten there before and have always loved the eclectic menu. I had the MN Fish Fry sandwich WOW! Locally sourced, fresh, with so many layers of flavor. A favorite stop for certain!
