I live in this area & this is my favorite restaurant in Mankato. Whatever I order here has always been wonderful. Usually I tend to order the seafood, but my husband sometimes chooses other options, always good food.
This being said, the service here has taken a decline in the past year or so unfortunately. We eat here maybe every couple months. The last time we ate here we waited over an hour for our appetizer (which was some type of nachos)! My friend finally got her salad served with her entree (1 1/2 hours after it was ordered). They did end up giving us the nachos for free, but really the service was downright terrible! The manager did come over & appologize at the end of our meal, but it was very disappointing.
My advice would be if you have some time & are a patient person go ahead & try the place. The atmosphere is great & so is the food. Hopefully they will get the service issue figured out again soon.
Oh, one other thing. They have "terrific" bloody mary's. It's like a meal in itself, but they are great! Probably the best bloody mary I've had.
