People were friendly and the food was great, Walleye sandwich was very good. The view of the St Crioix was awsome and was a very nice day.

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice meal there on a sunny afternoon. She had a mushroom and chicken dinner and I had a shrimp and scallops linguine. We both enjoyed the food and our waiter, Cortland, was great. Will try to go again.

Beautiful river view, service was really good. I recommend the outdoor seating if it's warm enough. Decor inside the restaurant is a little dated. Appetizers we're really good. My steak was so-so. Pretty good beer selection.

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!
