Friday lunch was at D.B. Searle's in their banquet area. Pulled pork sandwiches, a great salad, tomato basil soup, and drink was the menu and it was terrific. Then we came back for dinner that evening with the choice of steak, chicken, or ravioli. The salad had vinaigrette dressing. And then there was our "re-birthday" cake. The dinner was for... More

I love this place!!, I've celebrated birthdays, and have had many dinners with close ones and relatives at D.B.'s The building itself is historic and holds a high place in the hearts of many of the locals of St. Cloud MN, myself included...great place, always classic.

Ok, I'm not a whiner and I hate to give a place a bad review but our experience today was well below par. Sunday afternoon, middle of the Vikings game, place less than ½ full. Starting with a small, weak cocktail, I ordered their classic burger - advertised as a ⅓ pound (precooked). Brother ordered sliders. Waiter tells us they... More

My mom and I wanted to eat at a "farm to table" restaurant while in town a few weeks ago and were glad to find this as an option. We arrived quite late (9:45 PM) and we weren't sure if we'd get in since they close at 10 PM. We were ready to accept the fact that we were too... More

My sister and I were in St. Cloud on a shopping excursion. She'd been to this fun bar/restaurant before and figured it was just the type of place I might like. She was right. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were two of only several people inside. We chose to sit at the bar. The bartender was very friendly... More

We had reservations for our anniversary. We were seated in a terrible location - right at the top of the steps which we dealt with -- however, both the chairs and the bench seat were so wobbly we didn't know if we would end up on the floor. The blackened Walleye was good - however, there were several bones. Don't... More

We had a great time on New Year's Eve. It was a very nice meal. We were seated in the loft, it was warm up there. Overall great place to eat. We liked that we didn't feel we were eating with the table next to us. Highly recommend this place!

D B Searles had always seemed a college hangout to me so would pass it by. Last week, we stopped for early evening drink to find excellent food. The wait staff was enthusiastic about the place explaining that the food was made in the restaurant, not frozen pre prepared. Happy hour half price appetizers were great, flatbread pizza with crust... More

Historic building with bar area on first floor and casual dining, but walk to the back of the bar and go upstairs to the third floor. Good restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere, and a very interesting historic background, including the Men's Restroom.
