The food is uneven, but the view is always amazing. It's a private club, so find a member for a reference to enter. In the summer, it has the best deck around overlooking the summing pool with young kids swimming, playing and enjoying themselves --...More

Very comfortable atmosphere, good food, good service. Very pretty view of St. Paul at night from the dining room. I had the seared scallops and they were excellent. Prices were very reasonable.

Went on a guest pass and it was bad. The service was horrible. We didn't get appetizer plates, couldn't get water refills. And the waitress was rude. The food was terrible. I had the chicken sandwich and my husband had the pork schnitzel. Both were...More
