It was a joy eating delicious meals in the company of waiters who were professional, yet unpretentious, helpful in their suggestions, witty and so very pleasant. Truly remarkable experience for dinner that we found repeated for breakfast with different waiter entirely.

Our family of six enjoyed a wonderful lunch here on a Friday afternoon. We ate fairly late and there was hardly anyone there so we had the place largely to ourselves. The lunch prices are better than dinner and the food is just as good....More

Wonderful romantic place to stay. Staff is friendly and helpful. Restaurant has very high quality food with a great menu and great view of the river. Hotel is within walking distance of many bars and restaurants. Will definitely stay again for other special occasions.

Friends brought us to the Nicollet Island Inn Restaurant for a Sunday brunch that really brightened a gray, rainy day. The Inn itself is charming. We had a window table so we could watch people from the neighborhood enjoying their Sunday morning-- walking their dogs,...More
