Good service and food. I had a bad experience with a seafood dish a few years back, so I stick with the steak. The bar menu is very good.

We had a nice meal with prompt service, no alcohol. I got sick with acute symptoms of food poisoning shortly afterwards. The reason why I rated this restaurant average was due to the response or lack of when we reported our suspicions of food poisoning. There was no concern or follow up call by the manager.

There really isn't anything not to like about Piggy's, the only reasons not to go here are a) they aren't open or b) you don't feel like putting on your dress jeans. It's definitely worth a visit for a special meal or if you just feel like indulging in an excellent dinner. It's about as highest quality the area has... More

They have a good menu everyday, but our favorite day to go there is Thursday. They have dubbed it "lot'sa pasta Thursday" and their pasta bar is delicious and a great value.

My husband, our daughter and I went to Piggy's on a week day and had the salad bar. It was fantastic! Everything was fresh, soups bread sticks and soups were great tasting and hot. It is too bad that they don't have the salad bar during the weekends.

Took my wife here for Valentines Day. Perfect end to a great day. In the last two months we have dined at Shula's on the Beach in Ft. Lauderdale and Manny's in Minneapolis and they have nothing over Piggy's except the price. Good wine selection and great food. You can't go wrong here.

I ordered Walleye and my husband had the 1/2 rack of Ribs. The Walleye was ok but don't think I would order it again and the Ribs, which we used to love and they were so famous for, they changed. They now use a rub on it which has a strange taste and aftertaste that ruins it. I tried them... More

No matter if it is lunch at the salad bar, a casual dinner in the bar room or a more formal dinner in the dining room, Piggy's will serve you a great meal and the service will be friendly and prompt.

Wow! Great traditional restaurant with nice menu selections. Appetizer sampler was excellent and we all loved our entrees. House salad with house dressing was a huge hit. Nice drink selection. A very good value as well.
