Lobster on a cold night

I took my husband to dinner for his birthday (a day late) Feb 27, 2015. We arrived at about 7:45 and were told it was around a 45 minute wait. (There were people everywhere). Being a Friday and around dinner time we understood so went to have a drink in the bar. The drinks were good and the... read more

Went to this restaurant for a birthday celebration. I ordered raw oysters and steamed mussels. Absolutely delicious. Also, I highly recommend the margaritas with Grand Marnier on the side. The service was excellent.

We decided to enjoy a nice supper out in Rochester MN. We had been traveling for a student VIP day at Univ of MN Rochester. We tried the sampler appetizer platter and the coconut shrimp was amazing. The biscuits they bring you were to die for and we could have probably easily gotten full off of those. I ordered the... More

Our waitress was very attentive, she knew we were in a bit of a rush so she got our meal out to us quickly. The food was great, my son loves crab legs and he said they were some of the best he's ever had! Of course the biscuits were delicious - and plentiful. Manager made sure we were satisfied... More

It was crab Fest, but the prices were rather high, 25.00 on up for selections. We both ended up getting the 4 course meal. It included, soup, salad, meal and desert for 16.99. Overall was a bargain! It is rather hard to find on the menu, my friend actually pointed it out. The waiter rather hovered over us all night,... More
