Ate there recently. We were a party of three. Two of us ordered soup & one ordered a sandwich. Waitress came over right away & took our order & brought our drinks. We sat for at least 30 minutes & no food. Thought is strange since soup shouldn't take to long to get out. Owner came over & asked if... More

Had lunch here a few times this summer. Awesome service every single time. Most of the food is homemade and very very good. Atmostphere is a just a nice small town bar but the food is incredible.

Nice little bar/restaurant on Main Avenue. We sat inside but you could also enjoy great MN weather. Fries were soggy, sandwich wrap was good. Service was top notch.

This is the second year in a row that we stopped in on a weekday afternoon during our vacation. This place is clean and the bar food is good. The drinks are cold. The best part is that the bathroom is very clean and modern!

Heard a few songs that we hadn't heard for years! Stopped by after viewing Niagara Cave around 1:30 on a Saturday. There were a few tables filled and the staff was having fun with the guests and each other. Food was alright - the buns are freshly made, but a little soft for the burger. Appetizer of homemade croutons, dips... More

This was our second trip to Crunchie's and enjoyed the panini's again. Small town atmosphere but welcoming to people traveling through! Loved the fact that they even had a Green Bay Packer sign in the middle of Viking country! We will be back!

Everything we ordered had a wonderful depth to the flavor. I had what I thought would be a simple taco salad. To my surprise it had barbacoa style beef and a fantastic salsa. My husband had the shrimp wrap special that was amazing as well. Clean restaurant, friendly staff. Fresh handmade french fries.. so good!

We had the best experience here! Were rudely bumped from the restaurant a couple doors down, so came here, and it was such great fun, and the food was stupendous! Our waitress was wonderful (so was the bartender!), and we had so much fun with her. Then to tempt us with dessert, the bartender came sauntering down the aisle whistling,... More

Whenever we get to the Lanesboro area we make it to OTCS. Great food, super friendly staff, and a superb tap beer selection. Make sure you catch a movie at the little theater across the street, then stop back for a drink or snack afterward.
