We come here whenever we are in town just to order the walleye fish. It is served in many different ways but never fails to disappoint. Of course, they have a full menu so one does not have to get fish. Servers are very friendly and provide great service.

I went to Tavern on Grand about 20 years ago and stubbornly ordered the fried walleye and, after taking a bite of my friend's grilled walleye, realized I had made a mistake. This time, I did not make the same mistake. I ordered two filets and it was some of the best fish I have ever tasted! Great service at... More

We love bringing visitors because we know the food will always be good, the staff very friendly and, the walleye selection outstanding!

We sampled walleye prepared 3 different ways from the menu, all were excellent as well as side dishes! Portions are generous and we had great service also.

Visited with friends two weeks ago. I glad two gift cards at 50.00 each, total bill was 66.00 and I gave her both cards. She said she used the one card and balance on the other. Tried to use the other today and it was zero. She either made an honest mistake or cheated me out of $44.00.

Tavern on Grand is still the best place for a nice lunch. Their food is the best from walleye to hot dish. We had two of our grand kids ages 12 and 10 today. Service is great they're when you need them but will leave you alone to talk. When in St. Paul try the walleye at the Tavern on... More

We were in town for a wedding, was looking for fresh walleye and decided on Tavern on Grand. There were 5 of us and we all got a different walleye plates and everything was great. Would most definitely return.

Have eaten here previously with better results. This time had walleye sampler, samples of deep fried, grilled, blackened, and a walleye 'cake.' All disappointingly greasy. Husband had meatloaf that he said he wouldn't order again. Service was good, prices reasonable food was just poorly prepared.

Thank tuck205
