We had breakfast before the Gopher Women’s Basketball game. Service was excellent and efficient. Food was good but not exceptional. Bloody Mary is very spicy, but u was forewarned! The air hockey tables in the lounge area were a little noisy. But no real complaints. Great pre-game spot.
Good stop prior to a Gopher game. Higher quality than most other restaurants in the immediate area around the sports facilities.
Greatly updated from the days when I went to the U. Great atmosphere and beer selection.
We discovered this place when we were looking for somewhere to eat before a Gopher basketball game. It fit the bill. Not overrun by students (probably a touch too expensive for them), but still gets busy so get there early or make a reservation. The food is very good--I've had the turkey burger and we went for brunch once when I had the breakfast tostada--also very good. The service is efficient. I highly recommend it.
Stopped for a quick dinner before gopher hockey game. Restaurant was very cold due to outside temp and revolving door not working at hotel entrance. It was not busy when we first arrived. Had to wait for beer and remind server after other items arrived but overall server was attentive. Chips and salsa claim to be homemade but t chips seemed stale and salsa tasted like pace picante. Pecan crusted walleye had slight fishy taste and veggie pilaf was a minute portion. ( Very disappointing for a high ticket item). Fish and chips just so-so. House burger was the best of three items ordered. Apple tartlets for dessert had only a tiny piece of apple (total waste of money) bread pudding was just ok. 3 people, 2 beers each , ok service and less than ok food for price (avg of $40 per person) , I felt overall the experience was pretty spendy and really disappointing.
My friend and I wanted to grab a quick dinner before the Gophers’ game. We made a reservation and had prompt service, very good food, and overall an enjoyable experience.
I had the beet salad with chicken and it was fantastic.
We eat here three or four times during each volleyball season. The location is the biggest reason but the food and the value keeps us coming back. The salmon entree is as good as any restaurant in the twin cities. The side dish of winter vegetables is great. The Bearnaise sauce is as good as any.
Leaving a special instruction on the Open Table instruction is useless.
A Great Surprise. Interesting diverse menu. Well prepared. Loved our meals. Very friendly and engaging staff. Atmosphere is nice ... a good vibe when many people are there.
Wonderful Thanksgiving meal. My son, grandson, husband and I had a hearty Thanksgiving meal. The squash soup was delicious! Thanks to the chef. The wait staff was right there whenever we needed them. Thanks to the app Open Table, for connecting us.
Great service, but mediocre food. Went for Thanksgiving and got the traditional-style dinner. Turkey was moderately dry, cranberries nice but uninspired, mashed potatoes seemed unseasoned in any way. Gravy and stuffing were tasty. Candy corn ice cream was a better novelty than I expected it to be, but the apple crisp was lacking in both flavor and crisp.
Given, this was a one-off holiday menu. The service was excellent and I really enjoyed the privacy of the high-backed semi-circle booths, and I wouldn't be surprised if they execute their regular menu with more success.
Eight of us went for Sunday brunch, and everything was great. Friendly, responsive staff. Excellent food quality with a unique selection of options. Definitely recommend!
I was disappointed that the express lunch had less vegetarian options on it this time then times past. I got the flatbread but it wasn't my favorite. Service was outstanding, as always.
The salmon and root vegetables taste good and are a great value. Easy walk to the Pavilion is main reason to eat here. A great conversation with the waitress -
W. How would you like your salmon prepared?
Diner 1 I would like it pink in the center.
W. It will come that way. And you sir?
Diner 2 I would like it red in the center.
W. They all come pink in the center.
Diner 2 Why did you ask us how we want it prepared if they all come the same way?
W. I have to take your order.
Love the ambience and the food. Not equipped for dinner before a game at Williams Arena.
WONDERFUL service! Our server was outgoing, extremely helpful, and really made for a great dining experience.
