Windows on Minnesota is a giant restaurant and event venue at the top of the IDS in Minneapolis. I can only imagine how many millions of dollars this restaurant would make if the food was acceptable.

Unfortunately the rating system will not allow me to give 0 Stars...so I have to give 1 which is too many!

It came down to a war of words with the coordinator... More

Can you go here for actual dinner? I thought it was just for wedding receptions and stuff. That being said, it's really nice!

Horrible buffet-style food. And overpriced. Not worth the view.
