Great Walleye

Great place to eat. The walleye was delicious. Unfortunately, the waitress misunderstood my order and brought me blackened walleye rather than fried. Both were very good, however. Good quality food served here.

As the name suggests, it's a tavern that serves Walleye however you like it, pan fried was my choice and a great choice. Busy place and area with parking a premium but well worth your time. Located on Grand and Dale.

Out of town guests wanted to try the famous Minnesota Walleye. I search for something more than the Tavern. I just thought there must be more. We ended up going to Tavern on Grand and it was grand. More than grand! It was superb. One guest got the Walleye Sampler. Large pieces cooked in the 3 styles. All excellent. One... More

Because of the reviews here on trip advisor, my friend and I tried this place for a very late lunch/early dinner. We were extremely pleased with our entire dining experience! Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful and guided us through which Walleye dinner we would like to have based on our previous experience with Walleye in other places. The... More

As I said there were a lot of Walleye (a white fish from the Minnesota lakes) on the menu. We had the grilled Walleye dinner with potatoes and vegetables. I loved the taste of that fish with their tarter sauce.

First of all,I want to express to readers of this that upon my arrival at the Restaurant,they did make the disclaimer at the Table,with a not that their Deep Fryer was down.This after a quick study revealed to me that half the Menu was gone,and Potato Chips were the substitute for Fries.

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 nice. A must for walleye lovers.

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.
