The Red Rooster gets a lot of press for their traditional Cornish food, which my husband and I did not try. We went for breakfast, and it was just okay, though the service was great and the place was clean enough.

Mineral Point was a Welsh mining settlement. The Cornish Pasty was their preferred luncheon selection. The Red Rooster is continuing that tradition, by providing delicious Cornish Pasties as well as other regular American breakfast and luncheon fare. We have been stopping here for years, and have never been disappointed. The friendly and helpful wait staff is another bonus. Mineral Point... More

Downtown diner with lots of choices, but pasty and figgyhobbin are a specialty. The pies are excellent as well. You can also order the pasty fresh or frozen to cook at home, good food for the upcoming cold weather!

Ordered pasties. They seem to be famous for these pastry filled sandwiches. But we found them a little dry. Would have asked for some sauce, but our server never returned. Would also have liked to try their Figgy Hobbin dessert, but left after waiting way too long for service on a day when it was almost empty. May go back,... More

Food to die for, especially the Fiddlenobbins (I think that's the name). A FABULOUS dessert. I'd drive the 2 hours just to have one!!!!

If you are looking for a homey diner with good food, this is it. Try the Figgy Noggin or Tea Cookie; delicious Cornish deserts you won't find anywhere else (likely)..

My wife ordered a side if soup and rated it average. I took the cole slaw that came with the pasty -- and it was delicious. The pasty was okay, nothing special. But pasties are a local specialty, so we had expected something "special". The surroundings at the restaurant are comfortable and inviting and the waitress was very nice.
