Stopped in after a tour of Afton Alps. Would love to be here in the summer on the deck. Fondue terrific. Server couldn't light flame and fumbled a bit on that. Risotto very good and same with salmon. Chocolate crime du brûlée lovely. Server tried hard but needed more training and background on dishes. Had to go and get answers... More

We went for the Friday Fish Fry, the fish was Ok, but the fries were cold. Beer from the taps was skunky. The price was good, $10.95 for three pieces of fish and fries. The ambience was good, but it was cold in the restaurant, and service was not very good.

Let me just say, my opinion of the place is not a diss. The service was excellent, the food was good, the ambiance was great, but it was just to fancy-smancy food wise. I like simple food, simple ingredients, presented simple that tastes excellent. Loved that fries were presented in little fry baskets. I would recommend, but leave the kids... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday after skiing at Afton Alps. It was dark from the outside/parking lot so we were not sure it was open. There were plenty of tables - we sat at a high top by the window. Service was quick. While we were waiting for our food the waitress brought out 'extra' caramel rolls... More

To say this food is good is an understatement! We medically are gf and can't believe how accommodating it was. Special fryer for gf haven't had French fries out in years! And the truffle fries are the best. Maybe found our new hangout. One downside...extremely cold and although decor trying to be more upscale...needs some sprucing up...

We came into town for the Afton Christmas tree decorating evening. The town opened up with many cute shops, wine tastings and a horse carriage ride which were all lovely. Sadly this visit for dinner did not match the lovely atmosphere. They were busy due to the evening which meant they had to move us into a side room. We... More

Walleye sandwich was so burnt you couldn't tell what it was. By the time they remade it, everyone else was done eating. Never should have been sent to our table that way. Also, never should have had to pay for it.

We have been stopping here for a late lunch annually following our traditional apple-picking event with family and grandchildren since it use to be the Catfish Saloon. We called ahead for a table for 7 and were immediately seated. That's where my positive comments end. Service was extremely slow, there was standing water on the floor near the end of... More

My husband and I stopped for dinner last weekend and were both genuinely disappointed in our selections. I have never had such poorly prepared, tasteless walleye. Definitely won't make a return trip.
