It has a nice view of the river and farmers market on Saturday. It is also a great place to have breakfast while waiting for the train to go to Chicago. Excellent breakfast.

This restaurant is located in the historic St. James hotel. The food is consistently delicious and presented beautifully. From the veranda one can sometimes hear the train whistle and the soft rumble of the train. Depending upon where you're seated- you may even see the river. My favorite thing to eat is the salad with banana dressing. Take time to... More

I rated the hotel 5 stars so I would certainly stay there again but the drinks were terrible at this roof top restaurant. Have you ever seen a clear Margarita served in a tall slender glass? Maybe it was an inexperienced bartender.

This restaurant is inside the St. James Hotel on the main road in Red Wing. They have both indoor and outdoor seating with a view of the river. No one in our party of 6 was impressed with the food. I had the nachos which I knew would be different than what would be served in Texas. However, these had... More

We were planning to have breakfast elsewhere thinking this restaurant only serve outdoors. But to our pleasant surprise it has indoor setting and we are staying at St. James Hotel, so it is convenience to us, having a baby, it is less a hassle to drag our baby at 90s F heat outside. The food was good, I had egg... More

We found the food at the Veranda to be great. The hotel is very historical but we found that eating outside on the patio was heavenly, especially with temps in the 70's as you can find in May and with great views of the Mississippi.

The whole St. James Hotel event is over rated. It is historic, but the food is bland and common. I am not sure what is the big deal, except RW has limited options with character.

We found the staff Veranda to be friendly and courteous. The restaurant has lots of large windows that face northeast toward the sunrise and the river with plenty of light and seating along the windows. The food was very good. My daughter had a honey bran muffin (bran muffins are hard to find) and I had an omelet. I also... More

Had breakfast two mornings in a row during a weekend at the St James. Nice selection. Great views overlooking the classic depot and the Mississippi River. They serve Sturdiwheat pancakes or hot cereal--a Red Wing institution. Great attention to detail, right down to the mini-jars of jams and preserves for the tasty toast. Of course there are other breakfast options... More
