We had a wonderful experience, from the moment we walked in we were greeted by the hostess, and seated immediately. Service was great, and not intrusive. Wine selection as good, and we managed to pick a delicious Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet. Food was plentiful, and we managed to get in and out in an hour and a half so we could make it to the game on time. More

Our first time since the Renovations. It was sooooo amazing. I always try the Eggs Benedict when ever I visit a new place to eat. They were probably the best I have ever had... and I have tried then at many different places! Oh, and the crispy potatoes are incredibly tasty! We will for sure be back again, for sure!!! More

We went before a wild game. One of the first things they asked was if we were going anywhere and had time constraints. I’m paraphrasing but it was great to be asked so they knew as well if we had to get somewhere. The food was good, one of the pizzas was ok but the other was very good. The carpaccio was ok not great. The service was excellent she did a great job if checking in but not overbearing. I would definitely go back. More

Minnesota sushi was not to my liking but others may enjoy it. I thought the pickle was too big and the prosciutto was tough. Scallops smelled really fishy even the people next to us we didn't know commented on it. Prime rib sliders were good and the cheese curds were fabulous. Only 1 bartender on after the game and it got quite busy. More

When we first opened our doors at 1983, the Sawatdee mission was simple: to take our community on an adventure full of Thai flavors and good times.

We love our Valentine's Day tradition of going to White Castle every year! It's just silly and fun, and we love that everyone there-- patrons and staff-- really gets into it! The decorations and menus and low lights made it romantically cheesy and festive. But what really makes it fun the last two years is the manager, Marvin! He hosted games and handed out prizes, and did it with such enthusiasm, joy, and playfulness! Everyone there was having a great time!!!!! More

Discover Saint Paul

Trendy and hip with a down-home friendliness, Minneapolis-St. Paul is a delicious destination. From excellent diner food served at Kerouac-worthy greasy spoon diners to the dishes served at gastropubs across the metropolitan area, the Twin Cities offer some of the best in regional and world cuisine. St. Paul also boasts many specialized cheese shops, butchers, bakers and delis in a beautiful Midwestern setting. Lowertown is a popular area with foodies. Try some fresh walleye in the land of 10,000 lakes. A cold drink on the terrace of one of the area’s many pubs is a welcome way to watch the sun go down in the summertime. The warmth and neighborliness of Minnesotans provide the perfect backdrop for an excellent meal in this city.
