Went early for dinner so really not crowded at all. Lots of folks coming in as we left though. Food was average. Breading on the walleye was soggy. Fries were standard pre frozen stuff. Really good soup. Attentive service.

Food was very good (actually best we had on vacation). We went on a busy night and were seated on time with our reservation. Had an issue with a nacho order. Kitchen was running behind and the appetizer came out after our meal. Our waitress was apologetic and took it off our bill. Do yourself a favor and try the peanut butter. You won’t regret it!

We've eaten there a few times for brunch and breakfast but never for dinner. We were disappointed by the dinner. We also came on a day the Vikings came so it took forever for our food and most of the desserts were out. The food was not that good. It was really basic and I guess we just expected more since the breakfast/brunch is much better.

Food and service was fantastic! There was a light right above our table that kept going off and on, but I understand you can’t really change the light in the middle of the brunch rush. We ordered the Bloody Mary bar and I feel as though it was a tad misleading with the garnishes to choose from, but it was an awesome experience. Huevos rancheros were top notch!

The food was cold and had to be sent back. The atmosphere was not bad and the service was also OK given the number of tables she was handling.

Given the quality of food 46 dollars for 2 breakfast entrees was excessive. Will not be returning.

Great experience here for a Sunday brunch. We made a reservation which I would highly recommend since there was a lot of people there to pre-game the Viking's game at the Bloody Bar. 4 out of the 6 of us ordered the Juevos Rancheros which did not disappoint! They were able to modify mine to be GF and there was plenty of other GF options called out throughout the menu.

The place was busy but our server came over exactly as we needed here and was always quick to refill water and coffee. She also easily split our check 6 ways which is always appreciated.

Service was okay until we told our waiter that the food wasn’t good. After telling him he said he’d talk to the manager to get a discount or get it taken care of. We didn’t get it resolved and our waiter disappeared. Until he dropped off our large bill and expected a decent tip. All I can say is don’t order the prime rib because It is awful.

Food was excellent, really enjoyed the environment and live music, service was sub par as our waiter was very inattentive in fact we had to wait almost 15 minutes after our dishes were bused before our waiter even checked if we wanted our check or to order dessert, he never got us refills, and he checked if food was correct but never checked back to see if it was cooked properly or tasted good. I was going to order some food to go for the morning but he was so inattentive I didn't bother after it took so long to notice we were sitting at an empty table.

Cool decor. Menu is very simple,but described to match the theme. Service was good, but our server didn’t remember is was a birthday dinner for one of our party. Food was just ok, and prices were a little high for the quality. Had the Juicy Lucifer. Cheese was barely melted in center. Flavor was pretty bland.

Hadn't been here for years. Thought we'd give brunch a try after seeing all the great reviews on-line. The decor looked tired and the food was average at best.
