We really like the perk of having a nice bar in the hotel we stat in. The local draft offered was good. The pizza was very good. Their is a nice, indoor fire pit and enough seating for that size hotel. We were particularly entertained by Sai, and enjoyed her service.

This entrees can be a bit pricy, however the sandwiches are in the perfect range. Try the Club, it is fantastic. The salads are also really good. You can't go wrong anywhere you choose to sit. Sai the bartender Monday through Thursday will crack you up. All of the waitresses are very good. Also, they will make to order almost... More

It was late and I had no transportation so I took a chance and had dinner here. The staff was excellent and the food was good. I would eat here again if the opportunity presented itself.

Sunday night stay, one bartender who also has to serve all the tables and keep bar guests happy. Tons of kids here for a sporting event making it busy. It also seems he's running all his own food. A bit much to ask especially to be able to give good, if any service. Only got a smile and a few... More

This restaurant has a breakfast buffet much like you would find today in many other hotels. The food for lunch, dinner and room service is average and better value would be found for dinner by taking the hotel shuttle to the Mall of America and eating there.

Had both lunch and dinner in this restaurant and was happy with both. Lunch was soup and 1/2 sandwich, the sandwich was ample and the soup (wild rice) was very tasty. Service at dinner was a bit slow but we also had quite a big party. Had the walleye for dinner and it was delicious.

Wonderful experience with Vicky B, Valorie, Minta, Ashlea, Nu Sarra over the last few days. We were in town for a family funeral and they took excellent care of us. Kind, friendly, and attentive service and good food. We appreciated that they let us hang out which gave us a place to be together.

Comfortable setting, nice menu. Waitress's suggestion of the daily special and the MN Wild Rice soup was definitely the way to go. Service was efficient and friendly. Really nice to find such a nice place right in our hotel.

After a long day, I ordered room service from North, as I was staying in the Crown Plaza in Bloomington. I ordered a large pizza with sundried tomato, mushrooms, and onions. The person taking the order spoke extremely quickly and with an accent but repeated my order. About a half an hour later, right on time, the server arrived. First,... More
