Upscale Restaurant in or within an hour of Red Wing, MN

There will be 10 of us traveling to Red Wing, MN for my mother's 60th birthday this summer. We are looking for a great restaurant that is either in Red Wing or less than an hour's drive. Any recommendations?

The first two I thought of were one of the restaurants in The St. James Hotel or the Harbor Veiw in Pepin, WI. But as I think of it I am pretty sure the Harbor View doesn't take reservations.

Harbor View does not take reservations. Seriously consider the Lake Elmo Inn in Lake Elmo south of Stillwater. Sounds like it would be perfect for your purposes and it is about 45 miles north of Red Wing. If you cross over to Wisconsin at Red Wing and back into Minnesota at Prescott you avoid Hastings traffic and it's a nice drive through scenic farm and river country.

There's a superb restaurant right in Red Wing, on Main Street: The Nortons, www.thenortonsrestaurant.com/

It's one of our favorites. We live in the Twin Cities, but we'll go down for special occasions.

The Harbor View doesn't take reservations and is pretty small anyway. The St. James . . . no. The other good place would be Nosh in Lake City, just 15 minutes down the road from Red Wing. There are a lot of good places to eat around Lake Pepin, midwestweekends.com/plan_a_trip/touring/scen…
