A must try for view

The food is a bit spendy .. I have only been for lunch so that's not so hard on your budget .It's worth it to try just for the view. Such. View. The room goes full,circle in one hour. Easy free parkig is a plus fo being downtown.

Went there Valentine's Day for brunch. Honestly the worst food I have seen or tasted in a long time. My boyfriend had the corned beef hash. It looked like grey cat food.

The view from the revolving restaurant is amazing. Our waiter Chad was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The bruschetta is better than any we've ever had and the walleye was incredible! Great menu and outstanding wine selection! We felt pampered by the great service!

I liked my breakfast and the view with the moving building is cool. It is a little spendy though and not someplace I'd go for dinner.

Well, this is at the top of the Raddison Hotel and is a rotating restaurant. What a spectacular view coupled with excellent food. 360 degrees in about one and half hours.
