The service is always stellar here! I cannot say enough about the fish. Amazing! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

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

Went for a weekday lunch with friends. It was my first visit. All three of us had the walleye sandwich which came with fries. Loved the bun which was nicely toasted. The walleye was tasty but a very small filet. The sandwich was cut in half and the chunk of walleye on one bun half certainly didn't cover the bun.... More

Was recently in visiting the twin cities and wondered where to eat on a cold snowy night. Decided Tavern on Grand would fit the bill. Always enjoy dining on traditional Minnesota fare such as Walleyed Pike, wild rice soup and tater tot hot dish (Couldn't resist) Food and service were excellent. Always brings back great memories of growing up in... More

I am a child of a Twin Cities fisherman. Growing up, I was taught that walleye is the best fish we have in our area. I believed that. I ate it in abundance over my 57 years. And I have never been able to find that quality anywhere in this area.... Until I went to Tavern on Grand. Everything is... More

We visited the Tavern on Grand for my sister's rehearsal dinner in October, 2014. There were 30 of us that were seated in their private room. The service was phenomenal - we had two servers who were extremely organized and competent. We always had our drinks filled, and our dishes cleared. The food was delicious - our group had the...
