Airport is very large. Thank goodness we found this restaurant to sit down in. Must try the drink "The Minnesota Bulldog". Very good. Burgers were excellent. Large and cooked just right.

We stopped for lunch here and we're surprised to find walleye on the menu in several different forms. We sampled the fried walleye sandwich & the blackened walleye salad. Both were served promptly & tasted delicious. We will return to this place where burgers are...More
