“Stylish eatery near Lake Calhoun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Tryggs. I was able to eat at Nora’s before it was torn down and replaced by this newer and more stylish eatery close to Lake Calhoun. It has some distinctive features such as a rounded ceiling and a unique shared wash room area. Statues adorn the facilities as well and the space was well designed in terms of a outdoor patio towards the lake and then bar area with lots of windows and then the dining area towards the back near the kitchen. We have eaten dinner there a few times, but tend to stop in the bar area. Their limited desert menu was nicely priced and the 2 scoops of Sebastian Joes ice cream were super tasty. Our group enjoyed the vibe and on Saturday night they were brining in a DJ. Interesting place that we will be back again.

Enjoyed dinner on a Saturday evening. The play was lively, but not to loud to talk. I thought the menu was very good. Enjoyed a calamari appetizer, just a little more breading then I prefer, but it was tasty. Dipping sauce was excellent. Cocktails and beer were very good. Enjoyed salad entrees served with hot popovers and bread. Server was very attentive and friendly. Her recommendations were spot on. Owner/manager came around and made sure we were happy which is always a good sign of a well run restaurant. Didn't order dessert, but saw a few that looked amazing. I really enjoyed my meal and I thought the prices were very reasonable for the quality of food and nice atmosphere. Definitely recommend and will return.

“Good Food, Nice Music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Ordered a bunch of appetizers and they were all good. Variety of wings were the best and the entree selection was decent as well. Played some old school music on Friday nights and dancing was going on. Not alot of room but the night was fun!

“Can't grill steak”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Ordered a rare steak. Came with outside that felt boiled and inside was cooked. Talked to the manager and he blew us off. Oh, and the waiter service was terrible as well. Got the salad wrong as well. Ad we dint even get water to start. Nothing good to say here. Will never go back.
