We decided to enjoy a nice supper out in Rochester MN. We had been traveling for a student VIP day at Univ of MN Rochester. We tried the sampler appetizer platter and the coconut shrimp was amazing.

It is rather hard to find on the menu, my friend actually pointed it out. The waiter rather hovered over us all night,... More

Stopped in for a visit during a recent trip to the Mayo Clinic. Seated quickly and great service from the wait staff. Food came fast, tasted great, and follow up service was good too. Manager stopped by to make sure we were happy and content. All around a very nice experience.
