Great little place in historic downtown White Bear. Nice atmosphere and friendly people. They have a nice selection of craft beers and good food. The ribs are good and the Mexican selections are wonderful.We often have the fish tacos, good stuff! The wood burning fireplace is warm in the winter. The patio is great in the summer.Never a bad meal.

Stopped here for a few glasses of wine and some snacks. Great service and a nice friendly atmosphere. Long list of specialty beers and a pretty good wine list. Appetizers were nice sized and very tasty. Menu looked good too. A little on the pricey side, but I understand the food is excellent. Will have to go for dinner some... More

No Crap on Tap seems to be the slogan. It is so true. Several rotating local and microbrews. You will find something to like. Not a brew aficionado? There are some mighty fine cocktails on the menu as well - I'm diggin on the Jamaican Ginger. Oh, and by the way - food is top notch. Try the Jerk Chicken... More

We've eaten here many times, and usually enjoy the food and service. The tap beer list is VERY good. When the weather is nice, the outdoor patio is great. Their Mexican menu items are the best. On one occasion, I had a very disappointing fish tacos. Dry and flavorless - steer clear of these. Other than that, we like the... More

First, you can find extra parking in a lot behind the restaurant. It took me a while to find this, driving around looking for a spot on the side of the street, so hopefully I can save you some time and frustration. It was busy when we arrived, but it wasn't an annoying busy, it was a "buzzed atmosphere" busy.... More

My recent early Saturday morning breakfast was great, much better than the breakfasts I've had at the other downtown White Bear Lake restaurants. The others in our group of four men agreed. Friendly and attentive staff. Clean and casual atmosphere. Generous food portions for a reasonable price. I liked the Eggs Benedict Florentine. However, on this selection, the English Muffin...

What a great little restaurant! I had a Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich and Fries, and my friend had a guacamole burger and fries. I loved my sandwich and the home-cut fries were awesome! They had a fire going in the fireplace, a real fire, not a gas-lit one... which made it so homey! Our server was excellent and we had our... More

We ate dinner here on a Saturday night. Packed and very lively. Too cool to sit outside. Food was reasonable in price and good. Several of us had walleye, another had a salad and another enchiladas. All the food was good. Service prompt and friendly. Beer choices were plentiful and wait staff knew their offering quite well. Definitely would come... More

Sunday lunch was great. The food was very good. We sat outside in the sunshine and had a great time. Three of us had different types of burgers. Each was delicious and cooked to our specifications. The fourth person in our group had the Philly Steak which she liked. The onion rings were crispy and not greasy. My brother had... More
