Good Fun

Pirates and caribbean food in Minnesota! Solid good food choice. Not gourmet, but tasty and well-priced. Friendly and comfortable atmosphere.

My family had high expectations after seeing the "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" sign outside the restaurant. We waited about 20 minutes for a table on a Saturday afternoon around 2:00 pm, even though there was no one else waiting. While the server was very accommodating for my food allergy, I found the food to be average. It was tasteful, but... More

This restaurant has very good food, but there are some drawbacks. One is that it's pretty loud in there, which makes conversations difficult. Another is the service. It took us about 20 minutes to get our drinks. The food and drinks came at almost the same time. We were enjoying our food and almost finished eating when we realized that... More

The service was great. The menu is a little confusing. The prices are high for the food quality and quantity you receive. My $17 tacos were served with a 1/2 cup side in a plastic boat. I guess I was expecting more wow. There are many other options for this destination tourist town.

Where do I begin? Multiple feature on Diner's Drive-ins and Dives, you HAVE to try their Jerk Pulled Pork Tacos - nothing like them anywhere. Over 150 varieties of rum, some insanely hot "666" wings, and a great menu full of Caribbean-inspired menu items and sides, this place never gets old and always satisfies.

arrived at 4:50 and stood in line to put my name on a list. While Kirsten was talking to me to take my name she answered the phone and then put that person's name first. She told us it would be 45 mins. We waited 70 minutes then my husband walked through the restaurant. Eleven open tables but no one... More

Beautiful area to visit on the way to Smalley's and great place to eat once there! Many delicious options to choose from, and a large number of beer options to compliment anything on the menu. Will definitely go back next time in the area!
