We visited on Friday, July 21, 2017 at noon. I last reviewed this place 6 years ago. There is free parking. Our party was three adults. We were seated promptly. My sister and I each got the walleye sandwich and my wife had a cheeseburger....More

We went here for lunch with family and had terrific meals. The menu was unique and everything we ordered was good. Lots of fish options, which we liked.

The view is outstanding, and the outdoor patio charming...but the food was not my thing. From the outset, I must admit I'm a picky eater, and I should never go to a restaurant that doesn't advertise farm-to-table. I'd been here a number of times in...More

Yes, they take reservations for inside. When nice weather comes to Minnesota(tee hee) you may wish to dine on the patio and that is first come, first seated. In the mean time, call for a reservation and ask for a window seat!
