But this place has a relaxing casual atmosphere. The fish is excellent. The attachments less so. Season veg was pepper and green beans. a bit more variety would be nice. Between the fish and fries both being fried, we got too greased out to finish. Would go again but get something not... read more

Delicious walleye, marginal sides. Everyone's side dishes were unsatisfying, either cold or undercooked. Cole slaw tasted like wet cabbage. Needs some double-checking on quality before sending dishes out with perfectly cooked walleye.

I visit the St. Paul area about once a year. I make it a must to find a good Walleye dinner and this place hasn't disappointed me in years. If you are coming for a burger or something else - yes it may be middle of the road - but that's not why I visit - I visit because I... More

We had heard good things about Tavern on Grand, and weren't disappointed! The menu had local favorites, like Walleye and even Tatertot hot dish! The food was home cooked good, and the service prompt and friendly! The Dragon Puffs (appetizer) were amazing!

They have great salads, burgers, and of course walleye! It is fun to eat at the bar if you are with yourself or a friend.

People told me this was the best Walleye in the Twin Cities, for for years I never got there. I finally made it. I had the deep fried which had a light coating and was very well done. It didn't taste like deep fried at all. My wife had the grilled which had very good spice mixture. The atmosphere was... More

Four of us had the walleye northwoords dinner with wild rice and asparagus with Hollandaise sauce plus a salad and dinner roll with beer and soft drinks (refills free). This was a very healthy alternative to the sandwich and fries that we might have preferred. The menu has a multitude of walleye alternatives. Service was very good.

We have been coming here for years. One of our favorite spots in St. Paul. Stopped on 10/30/15 for walleye cakes and wine. When did walleye cakes become crushed up tator tots?

Just got back from Tavern on Grand. This is a pretty typical Minnesota casual bar/restaurant with a decent beer selection. They have burgers and we considered getting them but after trying the impressive walleye sampler appetizer (grilled, fried, and blackened walleye with a couple of sauce options) we each got walleye entrees. No one was disappointed. The fish was noticeably... More
