Great burgers. Tots were really unusual and tasty. Service friendly but professional. We thought the menu was varied yet very Minnesotan, in a good way. It’s an attractive space also.

The honey harissa marinated chicken sandwich was not good. The sweet potato fries were. My husband's fish and chips were only okay. Our waiter, who was very over-worked this holiday evening was great.
