“Excellent Mother's Day Buffet, good selection of food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

Had reservations for 1:30 for Mother's Day Buffet and had a party of 8 people. Arrived a little early and we were seated at a nice table and were not rushed while we waited for other guests to arrive. Buffet had several salad items, hot entrees, fresh made waffles, omelets and hand carved roast beef and turkey. Nice selection of desserts including chocolate dipped strawberries. Busy atmosphere but very laid back and had acceptable service. Nice area outside for walking around gazebo, flower gardens and small pond and nice place for family pictures.

“Very unsatisfied”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

We made reservations for Mother's Day, for 1 pm. We ate there last year on Mother's Day and were satisfied, so we decided to try it again this year. We arrived 20 minutes early. There were 3 to 4 tables open, but we were told that our table wasn't ready. Ok, we figured we were early and would wait. At 1, we still hadn't been seated and we checked on how long it was going to be. They said the table still wasn't ready, but they would tell the people they needed to hurry up. Finally, at 1:20 we were seated......at one of the tables that had been open from the time we had first arrived. The buffet was badly picked over, the selection was poor, and the food that was supposed to be hot, was cold. For the price we paid, we certainly expected more than what we received. I realize that the Mother's Day buffet is a huge undertaking, with a lot of people attending, but this was not handled well at all.

“Nice place, friendly servers, good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

We had to pull off the freeway due to snow and icy roads. Friends mentioned this place to us in the past, so decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. They were not busy, probably due to the weather. Food selection was good, wife had soup, I had pasta; both tasted good and were expected proportions. Beer was cold! We will go back, but Baldwin is not a place we stop often.

“Excellant Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

Made a last minute Valentine's Day reservation. Got there early to enjoy some time at the bar. Bartender was very friendly and helpful. When we got our table, we had the lobster ravoli appetizer, I had the steak, my wife the prime rib. All was exceptional. Our watress, Mallory, was very friendly and efficient. The Decor of the restaurant is very inviting, the food and service wonderful. Made a really great evening.

“Great ambience, food pretty good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We thought we would be stuck with fast food on our journey back to MPLS, but ran into this place. From the outside, it looked very nice - and was already starting to get busy at 5pm on a Sunday. Everyone was very nice and welcoming... Our food was alright. I and a pretty good blue cheese burger (I would get it again). Our appetizer (onion rings) were a bit over fried, but still tasted ok. We found something for our daughter (spaghetti) the was dairy free to accommodate her needs. Overall we were pleasantly surprised and would come back.
