Very good food & atmosphere

We've been frequenting this place for several years. The food is always good with large portions. The serving staff need customer service training. Some are really good & others are really bad. The outdoor seating is very nice. The hostesses are always friendly and helpful, even though they are... read more

My wife, my sister and I enjoyed a very nice meal here. Service was good but not overwhelming. My sister had a walleye entree, I had a walleye sandwich on wild rice bread, my wife had one of the many salads offered. They also have a Mexican menu. Very good drink selection, including a hard cider on tap. When finished... More

Free chips and salsa with happy hour, nice touch. But they only give you a tiny salsa amount, and charge you if you request more? Food and drinks are always excellent. Majority of White Bear Restaurants during Decemeber with gift cards do buy 100 get $20 add free, they don't. Hoping this will change..

An excellent White Bear Lake casual restaurant with superb patio seating. Great for a casual lunch or a late breakfast.

This might be the hippest place in White Bear Lake. They have a great patio in downtown WBL, and plenty of beer/wine on the menu. I met a friend for a few drinks and we enjoy a not to crowded patio on a Tuesday evening around 6pm. It started to sprinkle so we made our way inside and were only... More

On a sunny afternoon, we were looking for a place with outdoor seating (check), cold local draft beer (check), reasonably-priced small plates that accommodated a vegetarian diet (check), and no long wait (check). Good food, good beer, and we'll be back to check out more of the menu.

They have good service and the food is good but overrated. It seems a little forced. They have a nice patio but a bit crowded.
