Diner Reviews
  • "Our family has been to Current several times and have always had a good experience, however, on our last visit it was Valentine's Day. Luckily we had a reservation, as the place was packed. Service was especially slow. Our appetizer (crabcakes) came quickly, and were delicious, but it took over 45 minutes for our entrees (seafood pasta, salmon & a kid's sandwich meal) to come out! And no explanation was offered by our waitress. While this experience was not our best, we'll prbably go back to Current, but will definitely stay away when it's a "holiday"."

  • "What a nice surprise find a new dining option in the St. Croix River Valley. We stopped in for a birthday dinner after an afternoon of outdoor activities and found it very warm and inviting. While the menu might be smaller than other destinations, there is something for everyone. We had the Norwegian roasted salmon (excellent!) and the steak (a nice treat for my husband). We shared the crème brulee for dessert -- worth saving room for."

  • "We went to the restaurant on Valentine's Day and we all (4 of us) raved about the meals and their presentation. The appetizer (spicy chicken drops) was amazing as was our dessert (vanilla bean creme brulee). Look forward to returning!"

  • "We did not eat at the Current due to they were an hour behind on seating guests with reservations. We arrived at 7:45pm, for our 8pm reservations, and were told they were running behind because the kitchen was serving 3 restaurants. Guest who had 7pm reservations were still waiting to be seated. We did not want to wait that long and were worried about the food quality by time we would have been served."

  • "When we arrived we were told that the wait would be 45 minutes to an hour despite having a reservation. We waited nearly an hour for our food once we were served and we never got our salads. When we reminded the expeditor and then our waitress about our salads, we still did not receive them for nearly 15 minutes and then we were told that they "took caesar off the menu" and that our waitress forgot. Therefore, we were given one salad instead of two well after our meals were finished. Despite implying that they support local farms, there was not one reference on the menu to the source of the food. Finally, our bill had 2 items on it that we did not order or receive."

  • "We were pleasantly surprised. Excellent food and ambience. My only complaint concerns the waiter we had. I had ordered 2 martinis with dinner and he took it upon himself to bring me a third even though I neither ordered it nor wanted it. I thought maybe it was a mistake at the bar and he was being nice so as not to waste it. However it did show up on our bill. I was not very happy and should have said something but we had had such a nice evening otherwise I let it slide. Watch out for the waiter with the ponytail. He's sneaky."

  • "We went to Current for the first time Friday Night (1/24/14). The restaurant is quaint with some beautiful creativity in the ambience. The noise level was high and the restaurant was not full. Perhaps that is why I got a Chardonnay instead of a Cabernet? However after drinking the Chardonnay and asking for another, I got a Cabernet added to my white wine. Our family could not hear each other at our table. The edamame was excellent! The Norwegian Salmon Entree was fabulous! My husband enjoyed the flatbread but the winner winner chicken dinner was not a winner."

  • "I recently got a gift card from my work and my dad and me decided to go for new years eve. The atmosphere was different, their was very dimmed lighting, were weren't sure what to order than seen steaks on the menu. We had a couple of appetizers first and were blown away at the quality of the food, even though it was expensive."

  • "This was our first time dining at the Current and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Service and food was great and the ambiance is nice; it's a come as you are place with great decor. We were seated at a high top near the fireplace which was perfect on a nice when the snow was falling. Chicken drop app was amazing and I would have licked the plate clean if my wife would have let me. All four of us had amazing main courses as well. All in all I give this place 5 stars and I will definitely make the drive from Hastings again. To top off a great meal, I was also pleased to see a "Veteran Owned Business" sticker in the window because we like supporting vet owned business."

  • "Weeks in advance, I made reservations for lunch after my wedding. I made note of the occasion in my Open Table reservation and also when I spoke to them by phone. When the wedding party of ten arrived for our 1:15 PM reservation, the restaurant was quite empty and there was no hostess at the station. Instead, she was still putting our tables together. At no time did she stop and come up to us to let us know that she was still arranging the tables; just asked a server if we were the party. Our server was kind enough to replace a dish that one of the youngsters didn't like. Kudos for that. We asked for a bottle of champagne but were not given a choice, just brought a SCREW CAP bottle to the table in an ice bucket and left to pour ourselves."

  • "Current looks to be an extension of the old Afton House restaurant. However Current is more modern in both the atmosphere and food. I love the fact that the food is locally grown and high quality organic. I could definitely tell that it wasn't your regular "processed" restaurant food. We were there for the Thanksgiving brunch and it seemed to have a Norwegian theme with Lefsa, Smoked Salmon, Whole Cranberries, plus great meat, salad and fruit choices. I think it's a good value for the money. Love the atmosphere as it's small and has a homey feel with the fireplace, dark wood, big open bar area and nice windows. Outside patio overlooks the marina (from ground level). This is such a cute quaint town that it's a nice experience."

  • "I called ahead of time and specifically asked if the restaurant was on the river. I was told if I sit on the patio I would see the marina and then the river beyond it. I reiterated "so it has a river view?" and said if it didn't, I would come on another night. That night I needed a river view. The answer was yes, it has a river view. I asked how it compared to the view from the Freight House in Stillwater and was told it was very similar. When I arrived I discovered the patio did NOT have a river view. Needless to say, I was a very dissatisfied customer. We had driven 45 minutes through rush hour traffic to enjoy a dinner with a view of the river. We left without dining."
