We had never been to Prescott’s and had received a gift card so decided to give it a try. What a treat! Everything about our evening out was great, our server, her wine recommendation, dinner (we enjoyed seafood stuffed prawns and cordon blue) and the raspberry cheesecake. We will definitely return!

Consistently good food. Nice atmosphere. Had the Cajun walleye sandwich which was a very tasty piece of fish but the bread to fish ratio is WAY off. Big bread. Very little fish. Others had the fish and chips and it looked delicious. Nice place for a business lunch with a lot of great menu options. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Rochester, Minnesota, is a welcoming community and home of the Plummer House, which features a quarry, water tower, gardens and a large event facility. To start your day, visit one of the many coffee shops or bakeries in Rochester and try a cafe au lait or bold-roasted coffee and pair it with a biscotti, apple fritter or Berliner doughnut filled with fruit preserves. Swedish food is a popular type of cuisine in Rochester, reflecting many city residents' historic Scandinavian roots. Swedish meatballs paired with mashed potatoes, gravy, pickles and lingonberry jam is a traditional meal to enjoy at one of the family-owned and operated restaurants. Herring is also a favorite local specialty. You could try it pickled, which is the traditional Swedish way, or have it fermented with boiled potatoes and cabbage.
