After exploring the sites of Minnehaha Park and the great Mississippi River, this place really delivered an amazing meal. Very hipster, the wait for my food was lengthy, but worth the wait. I enjoyed fish tacos.

There is a long line for food at this place for a reason - the food is superb and moderately priced. Go with a friend and it will be worth the wait. This is a casual outdoor cafe. You order at the counter and then servers do bring the food to your table. Beer and wine is available. Nearly everything... More

disclaimer: I do not like seafood. I got the basic fried fish, which was actually very good. Prices are decent. Went with 5 other friends, who like seafood, and they all thought it was amazing. It is fresh, with lots of choices. If you don't like seafood, there aren't many options. I think there were 3 vegetarian/non-fish options. All seating... More

This mostly seafood casual dining restaurant in Minnehaha Falls park in Minneapolis is delicious and reasonable. Specializing in fish, shrimp, calamari and scallop tacos and sandwiches they also have some good vegan items (Veggie curry, grilled veggie tacos and walnut burger) and their crab cakes are all crab with seasonings. You sometimes have to wait in a long line to... More

The prices are reasonable and the food is good, eating out in the park is a great experience. A great place to get some drinks and food and chill out while in minnehaha. The fries and the shrimps are very recommended. You can also find some musicians and artists performing. To what i know its open only during the summers.

Can't beat sitting outside near Minnihaha Falls for lunch. Having excellent seafood at good prices makes it even better. I recently had the Mahi Mahi taco and was amazed at all the fish that was stuffed in there! Others in my group had scallops, shrimp, and fried fish. Everyone enjoyed and we hope to return again when in the area.

I am a bit of a seafood snob from living on the California coast for a couple of years. Most seafood I get in the Midwest I can tell that it has been frozen. This was not the case here. We ordered the Coconut Shrimp Ceviche, Crab Avocado appetizer, and the Strawberry Walnut salad. The first two came with pita... More

Being from New Orleans originally, I was quite impressed with seafood selection and the quality of the dishes. The seafood is fresh and the seasoning makes it feel like cajun/creole eatery. Just be prepared for long lines and many fried options... but not many healthy ones!

Great seafood. It was busy and took a very long time for us to get our food and then they forgot our silverware and napkin. Felt it was a little pricey for what we got. Great to see all food and containers and silverware is recycled.

Thank DonnaleeAnn
