I'm local and come here every month or two. The Ole Store is a traditional "fine dining" restaurant and is easily, overall, the best in Northfield. That said, it does not compare favorably to restaurants in Minneapolis or St. Paul. The menu covers a broad price range with some inexpensive burgers on up to daily specials usually in the high...

This is a great restaurant, modestly priced with good service. The restaurant is located right off the main drag and easy to find.

We stopped for lunch at the Ole Store Restaurant yesterday. We had not been there for years. It is obviously under different management and has been remodeled since we were last there. The decor is lovely, the food is wonderful, I can't wait togoback for dinner or a weekend breakfast, which we will do soon. Had the bison burger and... More

My wife and I had a great meal at The Ole Store restaurant. Tuna ceviche for starters, followed by nicely prepared Red Snapper and Scallops. Our server answered all our questions quickly (food allergies) and was attentive. She didn't stop by every few minutes and interrupt our conversation either! In addition to good food and service, we really enjoyed the... More

Nothing easier than making breakfast, right? But they can't get it right at the Ole Store. Don't count on fresh food. The breakfast meat is made in the wee hours of the morning and by the time diners show up to eat, the bacon is old, hard, and cold - as is the ham. As are the potatoes, old and... More

I have lived in the Northfield area for over 30 years. During that time the Ole Store has a couple incarnations--none better than the current one. Excellent service--excellent food--nuff said!

Nice attmosphere and cosy booths or if you prefer tables that's an option. I should have asked question about the flat bread chicken parmesan. Why not call it a flat bread pizza with Itatian ham on it to be clear. When it came to the table, it was covered with ham like meat that tasted like Canadian bacon that had... More

Was just here for some super food. The staff had us quickly seated and had glasses of wine in our hands moments later. Their new specialty is the ribs. If you are hungry, try them. They are good enough to drive the 30 minutes from the Twin Cities. I will definitely return.
