Heavy but good brunch

Took out mom for a special Sunday brunch. The place wasn't packed which was good. Btw, check out the service elevator for the mobility impaired. Brunch included a beverage, and a huge spread of breakfast food (eggs benedict, bacon, scrambled eggs, sausage, bread). Dessert was extra.... Try the... read more

Really good food and great drinks. Never met a friendlier host before! Bartender was great too. Loved the atmosphere. We will be back.

Forepaugh's has been in St. Paul for years. We had not been here in years and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is in a beautiful old home situated on a stunning lot. Every staff member was professional and top notch! But when you go to an expensive restaurant, you have high expectations for the food and this... More

Great food and amazing place to eat the food is pricey and the drinks are small but the staff are amazing and always willing to help with anything kind of a cool old supposed haunted house.

The ambience at this restaurant is awesome. A lot of smaller rooms and old time attention to detail. We've been here several times and the food is always amazing.

Incredible food and wonderful brunches. Bring kids as they offer specials. Dinners expensive: Hamburger outrageous.

We were a special party and a room had been reserved. The food was well prepared, and I especially liked the family style serving of vegetables-two plentiful servings of asparagus and brussel sprouts. The steak and chicken were cooked well, and well sauced. My only criticism would be the wait staff who didn't really know what to do with a... More

We like it so much we never bring the children, even though they are in their twenties, let them splurge in their own way , with their own age, this is for the gourmet diner celebrating! We go every year on our anniversary.

My husband and I went here for the Happy Hour on a fairly high stress day. We were seated on the front patio (along the road) and much to our surprise, there was very little traffic. Although there were a couple of boisterous groups on the porch (behind us) it was fairly relaxing. The house wine is good, served in... More

Celebrated our 3rd Anniversary here and decided to return for our 41st. The ambience is everything we remembered, cocktails were good, nice wine selection. Menu is smaller than some restaurants but taste and presentation were good. Kitchen was slow but we were not in a hurry. We celebrated with another couple and tried various appetizers, entrees and desserts. Flavor and... More
