Met with Kin for Light Supper. The choices of sauces for the Chicken Wings were beyond compare. Do Visit this dining Site.

Ferns has been a cathedral hill staple restaurant for years. Comfortable atmosphere, good drinks, warmed patio, Sunday brunch, full bar and great food.

Great food, bar and atmosphere. Try the pecan crusted Waleye with mashed potatoes! Moderate prices and very broad selection of entrées.

The atmosphere is laid back and the food is very good, especially the fish and chips which can stand up to any Friday evening fish fry in the upper Midwest.

Met for lunch with a group of ten people. There were specials of the day including soups and salads as well as pasta dishes. There are many choices under sandwiches and appetizers as well. Service was excellent. Everyone received individual bills. Water and non alcoholic drinks were refilled. Very attentive staff. Excellent experience.

We had dinner twice, and the waitress remembered us. Nice friendly restaurant, with very good food at reasonable prices. they were very helpful with finding us good food compatible with my wife's food allergies. The bar section was busy with a football game, but the restaurant is separated enough that this was not a disturbance.

Just stopped in for desserts after dinner at a different establishment. One had ice cream fudge tort, and I had the pineapple upside down cake. They were both very tasty. The cake was a disappointment, as it was small and expensive. Waitress was very good.

Dinner choices were endless, lots of home-cooked nostalgic choices. Food was good, big portions and came quickly which was good because we were going to the symphony. I would eat here again. We didn't have a reservation, but got a table right away because it was early in the evening.
