This place about blows me out of the water, no pun intended. Its overlooked on a beautiful lake, one worthy attending on a sunset that you dream about. I felt as I was on a dream vessel of the beautiful Titanic, where all employees took...beauty and professionalism to the next level. First off, a brew house, with flavors that quenched thirst beyond any beer that is so carefully handcrafted with talent. The live music, the beautiful ice bar, and the gorgeous atmosphere, made this place a unique and endearing experience that I will never forget. Oysters, perfectly paired with each side ingredient one looks for, to the perfection of scallops that built up recognizable flavors, dancing from table to pallet, was entrancing and nonetheless like a fairytale world that captures the beautiful supperclub. One of which I have never had privilege of capturing in real life. Lindzee, my server, is beyond what one could expect in providing the steps of service, upselling with passion and character that profiles a crave that you only dream about. She Upsold the perfect Bottle of Pinot Noir(prisoner) that paired amazing with the first plate to the very last, having a chocolate stout cake perfecting what I call a homerun for the whole family. Oysters, Crab legs, cuisine, transcendent that depicts what everyone rants and raves about. I'm making this my go to spot, for live music, any growler that needs filled and above all, the only spot to brag about here in the United states, especially Twin Cities. This ambiance completes what Minnesota is all about; breweries, culinary and entertainment with the best entrepreneurial leadership where I can tell, makes this place worthy of every dollar. I would love to work at such a dream boat of supperclubs. Will be back!!More

As a local-foodie, I was happy to see some dishes with local ingredients during the winter. I ordered the "Walleye Wild Rice Cakes" which was quite delicious (and a little spicy)! In the future, I hope to see this restaurant using even more local ingredients....There is something for everyone on Birches' menu (salads, pasta, steak, chicken, fish, etc.) Their cocktail menu was disappointing. I would like to see them using more local spirits (like J Carver and Tattersall), using the local region as inspiration for drink creation, and providing options with less or no sugar.More

Birches completely impressed. The service was fantastic along with the ambiance there was a live crooner setting the mode. I really enjoyed their freshly brewed beer the blood orange/ipa mixture was great. Started with some oysters make sure to go west coast as we got...both and the west coast were way better. The Brussel sprouts are honestly some of the best I have ever had going back soon specially for them. The fried chicken sandwich was also very good. The lobster roll is another must order. Overall everything was clicking at Birch’s and excited to try it again.More

Lovely dinner and great service! A little live music was also playing for a fun atmosphere. I was a little nervous about reading the reviews that we would be disappointed- glad they were wrong. First why is no one talking about the Brussels sprout appetizer?!?...Like nothing I’ve had before- so good. Their brewed beer and drinks also good. For dinner we chose the fried chicken sandwich and lobster roll to split. Both were also delicious. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!More

We got the NY Strip and the Shrimp & Spinach Risotto. Both were absolutely excellent. The NY Strip came with a garlic butter but you can ask for the chimichurri that comes with the filet mignon. We got a side of the hash browns at...the server's suggestion and it was worth it. It's pretty large but makes for a great breakfast the next day. We got the Stout cake for dessert which comes with a scoop of ice cream and chocolate sauce. It's very large for 2 people and we had enough dessert for another 2 days! Service was great, waters and beverages were constantly full, food came out fast. You can make reservations in the dining room but the patio is first come first serve. If you get a window table inside though, you still get a great view of Long Lake.More

Our friends took us to Birch's for a late lunch and the patio is perfect. Great view. Accommodated social distancing showing a care for the community. Not everything was perfect. Unfortunately, they forgot our ceviche, but removed it from the bill and did not serve...it as we already received our main courses. I had the Ukrainian sausage with fries. The bun was super buttery which matched well with the sausage. A subtle flavored sausage amped up by the stone ground mustard and sauerkraut. Their steak fries were well above average. I honestly don't even like steak fries, but if I am going to have them, I'd eat them here. Nice and crispy with a light center. There beers are well made and diverse. I had the blood orange Berliner Weiss and it lived up to the style. Service was a bit slow, but in theses uncertain times I hold nothing against them for it. It was one of the most normal feeling days I've had during the pandemic. I hear take out is easy and good too!More

Went for Sunday brunch. It was outstanding! We enjoyed both of our breakfasts. My wife’s bacon and eggs were done to her specs. The bacon was thick and plentiful. My Walleye Benedict was unique and served with greens, which I prefer to potatoes. My Bloody...Mary was very good, with a surprise beer “chaser.” Service from Jesse was friendly and helpful. The lake view was gorgeous. We WILL go backMore

Now that everything must be pick up- we order our favorite salads to keep them in business. However we noticed they charge $3.00 for disposable fee- really, if we were in the sit-down restaurant they give us to go containers if we can't eat it...all!! AND THEY DO NOT offer or give you napkins or silverware (they said i thought you would just go home and eat it?? Now they threw in a FREE cookie(REALLY I am gluten-free)I would rather NOT have the FEE and the cookie. JUST GIVE ME silverware!!More

We met some family there for a dinner after being out of town for 2 months. We were seated by the windows do got to watch the sun set. We spared no expense on this dinner. My wife had the crab legs and I had...the filet oscar style along with a side of wild mushrooms. Every thing was awesome. I especially recommend the filet oscar style. I highly recommend the wild mushrooms - they are fantastic! We had 2 of the most expensive dishes on the menu so our bill was in the high 3 figures...it was worth it!More

Anniversary dinner. Nice table as requested, window by the lake. Fire place was lit. Ambiance was pleasant. Took a little while for our server to acknowledge us, although she did have a couple of tables of 6-8. Appetizer was fabulous, sautéed calamari with a side...of a GF bun just for me! MmmMmmm My dinner was fabulous too. New item on the menu, Seared Patagonia Salmon. It was perfectly prepared. My husband ordered Herb Crusted Walleye, but was disappointed with the sweet corn and wild rice mash. Sounds good but was bland. I also enjoyed the Spicy Coconut Margarita. Our server brought us an ice cream sunday with a candle on it for our Anniversary. Very sweet.More
