    We enjoys simple lunch. The flatbreads were outstanding, we had the Mediterranean and the Shrimp boom boom. Both were equally amazing. Angelo’s service was great. He really made my friend’s birthday special.

    We ate at the Afton House Inn fine dining restaurant. The food is excellent here, although they no longer prepare the Caesar salad or Steak Diane table-side. There was almost no one at the restaurant. If you want a quiet place to go where you can talk while you enjoy your meal, this is for you.

    Our first visit with another couple was not as we expected. It wasn't very busy, maybe 4 tables but our food took really long to make. We ordered 3 burgers and a flat bread. Our friends said the burger was good but the fries were wilty and under cooked. My husband said his bacon cheeseburger was so so. Not worth the money and his fries were the same as our friends. My flatbread pizza was soso, nothing i would ever order again. We were out of our drinks without refills and I was not able to get a hot coco because they were out. All in all not impressive and not anyplace I will rushback to.

    Current Restaurant is a casual, comfortable and friendly spot along the St. Croix river. Good selection of tap beers, wine and cocktails. The upscale pub food is very tasty and competitively priced. Also has many gluten-free options well.

    Menu in room was so out of date the waitress and cook had never heard of Saturday’s being prime rib night. Half of the items on the menu in restaurant were gone and it was only 6:30 at night. There were boxelder bugs crawling on the walls of the room. The sheets were so cheap and old they were “pilled”, Do not recommend.

    We enjoyed our cocktails and dinners for the three of us. The restaurant was pretty quiet and we were comfortable at a high top. Our server was also tending bar, service was ok. The food was average. Disappointed that there was nothing for a birthday celebration, not even a scoop of ice cream.

    The Afton House “Current” bar & restaurant is a comfortable place to have a drink or to have an exceptionally good meal. My favorite is the braised short rib dinner and ice cold Martini prepared perfectly by their lady mixologist. The short rib is fork tender…knife not necessary. The service has always been exemplary. One of my top 5 preferred restaurants.

    Dining experience excellent as always. Great service. This is our favorite restaurant because of consistent great service and top notch food. You can stop in for a burger or enjoy fine dining such as walleye. Cute little town where you can walk off your dinner and explore the sights. Beautiful surroundings. It’s a neighborhood gem for sure!

    The food was very good, and the timeliness of the service was good. It was prom night for at least one local school, but the extra volume was handled well. To be in the country and near the river, for the service and price it was a great choice.

    I had the top sirloin steak and it was delicious! I ordered it medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. My boyfriend and I didn't think the portion of the mashed potatoes and green beans was large enough for the price we paid. The waitresses were very nice and very personable.
