Fun Place in Hastings

We had lunch at this place based on other reviews on Trip Advisor. It is right by the Mississippi River, and after lunch we walked along the riverfront. It is an amazing experience to walk right by the river (it's rolling by about 3 knots) and dip your toe in the Father of Waters, the Big Muddy... read more

We shared a margherita pizza and it was delicious! There was a grad party so we couldn't go upstairs to eat but enjoyed sitting downstairs. Our server was attentive and very friendly.

Downtown Hastings is a popular destination along the Mississippi River. We happened upon the Onion Grille driving down a side street looking for the river. Lot's of construction so parking was an issue. Once we got to the grille we were pleasantly surprised. White linen table cloth, great food and good service. I had a salad and it was exceptional....

You would never accidentally find the Onion Grille, it is in the lower level of an old building off the main drag in old downtown Hastings on the side of the road near the river. I have been to the VFW many times which is on the same road but closer to the river and never even knew this place... More

Having read great reviews of the Onion Grille we drove over an hour to have dinner. We were disappointed: A steak lacked flavor, "ribs" were more on the order of pork chops with sauce on them. Bread lacked flavor and was nothing special. The homemade ice cream was ok but not great. On a positive note, the service was friendly.

We were looking on Trip Advisor for a good place to eat in Hastings and The Onion Grille came to the top of the list. So downtown we headed and we found plenty of parking nearby. The location is in the historical downtown area near the river so plenty to see and do once you finish dining. The service was... More

On St. Patrick's day on an impulse we decided to venture out for Irish Dinner. We decided to try something close to home and thought the Onion would be a good option! We were able to get reservations, and it turned out to be a great idea. We were seated right away, and our drink orders were taken. We also... More

Outstanding upscale food and service, it is great to have a nice restaurant with a menu that is above par. This type of restaurant is what Hastings has needed downtown. I Love this place! The bar area is quaint and the service is always personable. Near the Mississippi River with a great view, come check it out on a spring... More

First off some excellent and unique martini choices. I went here for my birthday and the meal was excellent. I had the liver and onions which was cooked to perfection. The sweet potato fries were tasty with just the right touch of salt and so were the cooked vegetables. My fiancé had country the country ribs which were very good.... More

The menu has some nice diversity, with nice variations on classic options. Food was quite good, not outstanding, with prices on par with middle-scale eateries in the area. One the few slightly more formal spots in town, though you needn't bust our your jacket and tie by any stretch!
