“Worth the drive from the cities.”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

This place sits in a quaint & quiet little town of Marine on St. Croix. This is up the road Hwy 95 from Stillwater. The drive is through the scenic St..Croix river valley. The restraint sits next to a creek that flows into the river. The outside seating is so charming for 3 seasons of the year.(Outside bands on weekends).
Now the food... Excellent!!! Cod fish fry on Fridays, Tatertot casserole & the best buyers in the St. Croix valley.
A must if you're in the area.

“YUM!!!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

I had a burger and loved it! The atmosphere has an old town bar look to it, and the service was fantastic. If you are ever in this cute little town, you have to try this place!

“cozy spot”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Good menu selections. Good bar selections. It can be crowded at times, but that makes it fun. The wait usually isn't long and the bar is always willing to help you during your wait. Pizzas are really good. Last time we were there, the burgers got a little over done. But, not a big enough deal to prevent us from going back again.

“Charming”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We've stopped here several times for food, beverage, and the music while traveling along the St. Croix River. The seating is comfortable with a closed in porch area that views the outdoor stage. Bar seating and the outdoor picnic tables and outdoor fire pit are very nice also. The pizza and sandwiches are great. I'd like to see more salad selections with lo-cal dressings because there's not much for anyone watching their weight. Nice beer and wine selection. Great sweet potato fries. The live music outdoors is a nice surprise. We've heard The Barley Jacks sometimes play there and it's worth the drive to hear them. Prices are midrange.
