OK, this is really the one and only upscale restaurant in Lanesboro. Having said that, it is good that this is as good as it is. The food was exceptional, especially the lamb chops with a reduction sauce. The sauce on the penne pasta with asparagus was also phenomenal. The service was a little clunky; it took a while for...

Cozy second level dining room or a delightful deck in good weather--have a special meal here. By Lanesboro standards, perhaps a bit expensive, but if you came from the Twin Cities you will be pleased at what you get for your money. We had a perfectly prepared filet, a fresh and simple salad, a delightful dessert and an excellent bottle... More

We didn't have a huge range to choose from as it is still the off season but a number of people recommended the Old Village Hall. Only two other groups, so no trouble getting in. Service was attentive and pleasant. As we are from Australia we had a few questions about things and the waitress was more than happy to... More

Oh my!!! Delicious food. You have to partake in the feast. My wife has beef tips and I had tenderloin. The soup was cream of sweet potato. The wait staff (Jesse) was perfect. A wonderful meal in a wonderful destination.

Our B &B recommended this restaurant to us. I was a little unsure when we walked in, as the place looked a little tired, and the menu is small, but as soon as our food came. ..wow! And the place filled up, so we were lucky to get in without a reservation. I had the beef tenderloin, it was AMAZING,... More

I took my wife to dinner and we were able to get in without reservation, pure luck. The food was pretty good. Craft brews on tap a plus. However, our waiter seemed to have his own agenda. Saw him twice the whole time, seemed more intent on conversing with friends in his section. Even over heard he neglected another table... More

We stopped in without a reservation and the wait was about 15 minutes, so we sat in the bar and had a drink while we waited. Everyone was very friendly. We were seated upstairs and were presented with a menu with fabulous choices! Duck, Lamb Chops, Pasta, Beef Tenderloin....what to choose!?! I started with a bowl of butternut squash soup... More

Normally I might give this 4 stars but because of Jesse, our waiter, I'm giving this 5 stars. Food was very good and they offer a nice selection. Jesse added to our experience by his knowledge of food and drink, his recommendations, and his being very attentive to providing some very excellent service. We were in Lanesboro riding the bike...

This is a favorite every time we visit Lanesboro. The food prepared with many locally sourced ingredients is excellent, creatively prepared with wonderful parings and flavors. This visit was no exception as we dined on Duck Breast medallions served with garden fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes flavored with horse radish; we also ordered the special: Lake Superior wild caught Walleye...
