For Walleye Lovers

We went for one reason, the walleye. We were not disappointed. You can order a meal with deep fried, blackened, or grilled. You can order it as an entree, a sandwich, and as tacos. You can also order a WBLT, which one in our party did. Our server was just okay, the passive-aggressive Minnesota... read more

Tavern on Grand is really the only place to tuck up to a Walleye dinner in St Paul. Just my opinion. I'm not a big fish fan, but this place does such a great job that I really can't order much else once I am there lol. Walleye bites and fries are my downfall here.

It's a bar with very good food and service. That's it. Nothing fancy. It was just what we were looking for after driving around and looking at the impressive houses nearby. I enjoyed the club sandwich a lot. The fries are crisp, just the way I like them.

The walleye is, of course, out of this world. The rest of the menu is ok, appetizers and non-fish dishes looked pretty good. Kinda expensive but worth the experience.

Having married into a family with strong Minnesota ties, I finally got fed up with being teased about never having eaten walleye. My husband and I brought his dad here for lunch. It was wonderful! Walleye is delicious, truly, and my sandwich was piping hot and beautifully prepared. We had a low-key, enjoyable meal, and I can't wait to go... More

I love fish, especially Walleye. The Walleye Shore Lunch is among the best I have enjoyed in the Twin City area. Service was prompt and friendly given the place was packed for lunch. Parking is somewhat of a hassle but not enough of a deterrent to keep me from coming back in the future.

I had the Walleye Shore lunch. Overall, pretty darn good fish. Crispy and lightly seasoned. The accompanying fries were not freshly prepared as they were cold. Cole Slaw is creamy and delicious. Since I love Walleye so much I would definitely return again.

I had the Walleye and it was seasoned very well. The service was friendly and prices reasonable. The only challenge was limited spots in the parking lot but that was not a huge concern.

Our family festivities did not start begin until Christmas Day, therefore, we were out in search of an open bar on the Eve of Christmas. To our surprise, we could not find a bar open at 8PM. All lowertown bars were closed, as well as the bars on West 7th. We continued up to Grand only to be disappointed there... More
