A group met for breakfast and we were seated at large booth and mutliple servers helped get table leaf in so we could be situated. Very attentive and friendly staff and food was very good, but a tad expensive for what it is: eggs, sausage links, hashbrowns and toast. You are looking at $15 if you want coffee too. Great place and great location.

Wow. How is it that there are so many positive reviews on this place? My wife and I decided to give it a try and were we underwhelmed? Completely. Poor quality food coupled with high prices (even at happy hour) makes this a forgettable experience. And the service was internally and show to boot. There are FAR better restaurants nearby so don't waste your money here. We tried the walleye entree, the calamari and the cheese curds. The curds were not curds at all. Instead, they were cubes of cheese, battered and fried. Fake! The walleye was such a disappointment. There were a few tiny bits of overly fried fish along with undercooked, cold fries. Totally flavorless save for the slight taste of calamari. Probably fried in the same fryer. The calamari was typical frozen fare that you can get at Sam's Club. Even the tartar sauce was icky. I guess there's a place for bland, fried, monochromatic food since chains and places like this seem to do well financially but as a local place in a quaint downtown setting, this can only rate as awful. Sure felt like they were just going through the motions. Never again.

This is our "go to" restaurant in White Bear Lake. Great food, prompt service, great staff. Often with live music. The fireplaces and patios are great!

Have stopped for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Both during the summer on the outdoor patio and inside during fall and winter next to the wood fireplace. Consistently good food and service. Highly recommend.
