Stayed at the hotel for a month, and had breakfast here most mornings. After a few mornings the staff knew me by name. Quality breakfast served with a smile.

My husband and I decided to eat at the Veranda for breakfast after we stayed overnight at the St. James Hotel. We were very happy we chose to eat here. My husband ordered the special omelette of the day while I chose Eggs Benedict. I am happy to report that the Hollandaise Sauce is homemade and made fresh each morning.... More

Stopped for lunch and wanted a Chardonnay. The only kind they have is the St James Reserve at $11 a glass. Not worth that but our lunch was delicious and service was excellent.

Located in the St. James hotel. The hotel is beautiful. The Veranda overlooks the river, quite a lovely spot. Our food was great and we had excellent wait staff.

We visited the Veranda for lunch in the St. James hotel in Red Wing during a recent trip. The food was very good, the service was excellent even though they were busier than expected. The hostess actually took our order when the waitresses were busy. My wife had an excellent Turkey sandwich with a brule cheese, while I opted for... More

It has a nice view of the river and farmers market on Saturday. It is also a great place to have breakfast while waiting for the train to go to Chicago. Excellent breakfast.

This restaurant is located in the historic St. James hotel. The food is consistently delicious and presented beautifully. From the veranda one can sometimes hear the train whistle and the soft rumble of the train. Depending upon where you're seated- you may even see the river. My favorite thing to eat is the salad with banana dressing. Take time to... More

I rated the hotel 5 stars so I would certainly stay there again but the drinks were terrible at this roof top restaurant. Have you ever seen a clear Margarita served in a tall slender glass? Maybe it was an inexperienced bartender.

This restaurant is inside the St. James Hotel on the main road in Red Wing. They have both indoor and outdoor seating with a view of the river. No one in our party of 6 was impressed with the food. I had the nachos which I knew would be different than what would be served in Texas. However, these had... More

We were planning to have breakfast elsewhere thinking this restaurant only serve outdoors. But to our pleasant surprise it has indoor setting and we are staying at St. James Hotel, so it is convenience to us, having a baby, it is less a hassle to drag our baby at 90s F heat outside. The food was good, I had egg... More
