“Very good variety and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Nice casual atmosphere with lots of flat screen T.V.s on mute to keep you up to speed with the latest news and sports! Service was friendly and fast. Good variety of salads for me (I had the Blackened Chicken Quinoa Salad) and fish for my husband (he had the Walleye) - both were very good. Even though this has a bit of a sports bar vibe, it really was much quieter and definitely family friendly place with both indoor and outdoor seating.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Tried this place since so many people raved about it, wasn't impressed. I had fish tacos that were pretty bland. Idk if I'll ever go back, if I do definitely no fish tacos. At least I tried it.

“King Crab macaroni and Cheese is so good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

I was in Rochester June 18-22 for a knitting retreat. There were a couple large groups that went to the loop for dinner, and they took care of us like champs! Even when we added a few more people at the table. A friend and I split the Crab mac and Cheese, and the beet quinoa salad. They split it for us, and even split the bill for us. The drinks were strong (good or bad depending on your opinion) and the food was beautiful and very tasty!
