Reviewed September 17, 2013

A hometown place for a quick bite or a few drinks. Nothing fancy, just bar food but good quality and friendly service. Package sales too.

“Stumpy's in Rushford MN”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is my first "not good" review.
Our flying group ate at Stumpy"s Restaurant in early August of this year. we actually ate there for dinner on Friday night and then tried again on Saturday morning. on Friday night we were a group of 12. We ordered our meals and they came out very slowly one or two meals at a time. it was all you can eat fish night, and most of us had the fish. So the fish should have been all ready to go we thought. Groups that obviously were locals were served and left the restaurant before our table was completely served. ( the fish was horrible and was very dried out also) One of our members ordered a burger, his order never arrived by the time every one else had finally finished their meals.
Saturday morning was the same thing. There were only eight of us this time, and the orders were sent out one at a time. This time my husband and my meal never came by the time every one else was finished. They "lost our order"
Our group has eaten at Stumpy's every year for the past maybe 4-5 years a couple times a year and the service and quality of food has gone down hill each time. Unfortunately we will not return to Stumpy's again. We feel that we have truly given them a chance. The Rushford area is such a great place to visit it is really sad that a restaurant can be so, horrible to its visitors.
