Great Happy Hour and Bar Bingo and Meat Rafflel on Saturday.

We went on Saturday 11/7/2015. We did play the meat raffle and hubby won the last one. 6 pounds of ground beef from Ready Meats! We will be returning tomorrow because we had a great time. They have wonderful food as well.

Our waitress was helpful and our water glasses were never empty. The entrees arrived in good time and were served piping hot. It was good old Minnesota... More

Four in our party used a Groupon for our dinner. Two ordered the Rib Eye and two ordered the tenderloin. All four steaks were done perfectly and just as requested. The potatoes were delicious; mashed with skins on, creamy and perfectly seasoned. Asparagus was served with the dinner and was cooked just long enough to leave a slight crunch. Service... More

So. Friends told us that Sarna's had a prime rib special on Friday and Saturday nights for $21.99. We decided to try it last Saturday and it was exactly as advertised.
