Cast & Cru
We also have a small plates menu for more casual dining and our own Pastry Chef Melinda prepares our amazing deserts.
Our bar serves meticulously selected wines from the top distributors and producers from around the world, as well as fine scotches, whiskey, and craft beer.
Located in the historic Old Log Theatre on 11 1/2 acres, we host theatre patrons, destination diners, and our neighbors in the Lake Minnetonka area.
After a disappointing dinner with friends two months ago, this was a good improvement (even though the price as been increased).
There were 4 of us dining at the Cast and Cru, and all 4 of us were thrilled with the food/drinks and overall our experience. I think I have said this every time I have eaten here previously, as well. The food was delicious and menu choices are different than the standard options you find locally. We had quite a variety in our group from Salmon, steak, spagetti and meatballs, and pork tacos. We highly recommend if you haven't tried Cast and Cru before.
Mother’s Day brunch, so special, delightful and delicious. We were 2 parents, 2 grandparents and a sweet 18 month old granddaughter. We had such a fun time, and had delicious food. Our server Dave, was helpful and so enjoyable. Loved every minute. Thank you for such a fun Mother’s Day experience. We will be back to dine again. P.s.....loved the Rosemary Clooney cocktail. 😊
This has become our go to tradition for Mothers Day Brunch. Great selection and great service and great Bloody Mary Bar. Mimosas could have been bigger.
The food was amazing. Service was excellent. I did feel like our table was in the middle of the walk way. I know it was a busy day but a better location for the tiny table would have been appreciated. My one complaint is that the water tasted like iron. I could not drink it and as person who drinks water with every meal this was dissapointing.
We were there for Mothers' Day Brunch: great selection and great taste!
Overall it was really great. However, one omelet didn’t arrive until long after everyone else had finished eating. We also got our mimosas in plastic cups, which seemed odd on a special occasion (Mother’s Day).
A fantastic dining experience, highly recommended!!
Service was great! The food and drinks were amazing definitely recommend!
Sat at lovely outside table, attentive service and absolutely delicious meals for both diners. Highly recommend!
Main dinner menu prices way too expensive
Small plates great pricing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Cast & Cru and Old Log Theater. Everyone was very welcoming and kind. Our waiter, Drew, was terrific and a fun addition to our lunch.
My friend and I enjoyed delicious meals and great service.
Marc was our server. He has an excellent personality combined with providing outstanding service made our dinner experience outstanding!!
Wednesday night is date night at Cast & Cru and the chef always comes up with some very nice food. Really enjoy.
Easter brunch was amazing! We had a last minute change to our reservation and they did everything to accommodate us. We will be back again and again!! Lovely atmosphere too!
We had a group of 8, 2 kids 6 adults eat Easter Brunch at Cast and Cru. There were a few picky eaters in the group and everyone found something they liked at the stations. Plenty of good food. Nice location
Food was very good as was the cocktails
We’re seated promptly on arrival. We were given all the time we needed to order a drink and explore the menu.
Our waiter Drew (I believe) was the best! He anticipated every need. Will definitely be back!
Thank you for a very nice dining experience before the show.
Lovely surroundings and great food. Dessert was the best - chocolate banana coconut torte . YUM
We were there for Sunday Brunch and were very pleased with the ambience which was quiet and large windows surrounding an outdoor pond. The menu is not large, but what we had was very good. Wait staff(David) very attentive.
Great atmosphere, awesome service! Drew was an amazing waiter!
Great "hidden treasure" always love to do Cast & Cru when we take in the theater but food is so good we find ourselves putting Cast & Cru as regular venue we work into our date night
Great place to eat before seeing play.
One of my favorite meals in Minnesota, and probably the country! It was amazing. The staff is knowledgable and we ordered some items they recommended and we were blown away. I could eat the Mac and cheese ten times over again! We tried the duck poppers and had to order more because they were such a table favorite. The Earth Cake is a must if you love desserts- don’t forget to save room. The portions are perfect and allows for you to order apps and salads without feeling like you’ve had too much. Such a great place to dine!!
The food was delicious, the server was very courteous and attentive. We had a wonderful time.
Our party of four loved the food and the room. Our server Sean was outstanding.
I would recommend for a high-quality meal; portion sizes were too small though.
I ordered Walleye which was represented as fresh walleye Never frozen..other restaurants in the area have fresh walleye which means never frozen.
Desserts ordered were not worth the $12 per desert. They both had the same base with something different for a topping...over priced and not good!
We truly enjoyed our lunch; our service person was quite amicable and we enjoyed conversation with him. After the matinee' we came back to our table for coffee and dessert. WOW! Beautiful and a treat! All was good and we were very pleased with our experience. Thank you! We will be back the next time we go to a show! (P.S. Our husbands weren't overly pleased with the 'beef wellington' lunch/brunch item. They both would've preferred more 'beef'. They commented they would not order it again.)
One of the best, if not THE BEST dining experiences I've had in Minnesota. Our server Marc was incredibly knowledgeable, attentive and helped guide us through our courses with wine and drinks. The food was cooked perfectly and everything in each dish complimented itself.
Nice looking restaurant, very friendly staff, but both my husband and I found the food disappointing. This was an "occasion" and we didn't want to spoil the evening so we didn't say anything to each other. But after we left, we commented that the food was tasteless and not well prepared. Different entrees, and we both thought our meat was under cooked and flat My salmon was flavorless and the vegetable was so tough I couldn't eat it. The wild rice was OK, but to me it needed more flavor. Everything was edible, but certainly nothing special. We won't go back.
The food was great and the service was better. We loved the ambiance and the view of the marsh.
it has been a long time since we have gone to Old Log Theater and the Rosemary Clooney performance peaked our interest. The first thing that impressed me was before I even arrived. When I called for reservations, I was asked if we were attending the show; the reservation time was then recommended so that we would be able to enjoy our dinner and have time to enter the theater. The bartender even created a cocktail in honor of Rosemary which was delicious. The wait staff also asked if we were going to the show and stayed attentive so that our food came out timely. Food was well prepared and temperature was perfect.
This is the Cast N Cru I have come to know and love. Thank you!
The food was good; great server. Will be back for lunch for next production
The braised boneless spare ribs were so good. I want to return to eat it again. The short rib tacos need more flavor.
Food was cold. We had to rush because the show started 20 mins after we received our food. Server was inexperienced. Should have asked if were were seeing the show when we sat down. We really rushed at the end. Entrees expensive.
Our server, Sean, was extraordinary! He offered descriptive explanations of the dishes that interested us, and then provided exactly the right amount of service - he was there when we needed something, but was never interruptive. A real pro! He made it a memorable evening, capped off by a wonderful performance in the theater!
Nice pre-play experience (food quality, hospitality, ambiance, value).
