What a pleasant surprise

On our trip from Maryland to Alaska we found ourselves looking for dinner around the time we were passing through St. Cloud, Minnesota. Not expecting to find much other than the usual fast food places and truckstops we had seen up to that point. All I can say is make a point of stopping here... read more

We were staying at a local hotel and this was really the only place within walking distance. The food was great, the staff were so welcoming and we could watch the chef throw the pizza dough in the kitchen. He later came and spoke to us which was really cool. The cheese burger was fantastic as was the pizza. Under... More

Stopped at the Pilot truck stop to fuel our truck. Wanting to grab a bite to eat and at first only saw Subway, McDonald's & Burger King. Searched Trip Advisor & found RJ's American Grill. My husband & I decided to share a club sandwich & sweet potato fries. I also ordered a cup of the chicken/wild rice soup. My... More

Similar to Applebees, but with a more daring, chef-led menu. If this was located in an older classic style building, it would be so crowded you couldn't get in. Its surprising location, a strip mall, belies its quality. Great place for an upscale meal!

Fresh food and relaxing atmosphere, RJ's is a great place to take a date or for a traveller to refresh. It is behind the Pilot Fuel stop, so great for Professional Drivers on layover in St. Cloud. Ingredients are fresh and burgers hand crafted. The portions are American sized, so a couple could easily split an entree. Friendly and responsive... More

Located adjacent to a Mississippi river park in southeast St. Cloud, RJ's is a little hard to find but worth the trouble. We were impressed by the quality menu, and our entree choices were delicious. The service was warm and polite.

This restaurant has the best sweet potato fries we have ever eaten. We ate here twice and my husband ordered them both times - and he was nice enough to share. I had the fish tacos on both visits. I've never eaten better. The sauce was spicy but not overwhelming, the fish was crisp and the cabbage slaw was very... More

RJ's has a nice modern, relaxing atmosphere. Very welcoming of a family with small kids. We like good beer and wine, real, creative food, appreciate their allergy accommodations, and we critique everything, down to the bathrooms! They pass! It is a nice place to stop, if you are like us and are always traveling on i94. Put into your GPS... More
