That about says it all. In this little enclave on the St. Croix river sit this wonderful little bar/grill where everybody seems to know each other's name. It seems like the place is always packed ... we actually have eaten and that too is wonderful!

We got the real Minnesota experience- cheese curds and pot pie! A creek runs under the building; super cute!

The heart of Marine On St. Croix features a wonderful, quaint dining experience. Plan to visit Brookside. Warm atmosphere, ample comfortable seating, great sound system and off the beaten path just outside of Stillwater. Generous portions, and outstanding staff will make you feel very welcome. There is a nice bar area in case you are visiting for cocktails and appetizers.... More

Good food and even offer a gluten free pizza! Place is cozy and nice although the lower room tables for four are ridiculously small. Service and drink are also good. Would recommend!

Always a great place to spend a cold January afternoon! Enjoying a good Bloody Mary made out of their pepper vodka.

We recently attended an evening Christmas Concert at the Marine Town Hall. The seating wasn't reserved, so we got there an hour early to save our seats. Sans winter coats, we perused the small but well-curated public library downstairs before hopping across the street to the Brookside, which really does sit next to a brook. On a Friday night at...

We went to St. Croix Chocolate's Carmelpalooza. Stopped here for lunch. The front area has high tops and tvs. The second area has tvs and tables. The back area has large windows over looking the outside back area. The outside back area has a little creek and tables. The restaurant was very busy on a Saturday a beautiful fall afternoon....

We've been going to Brookside for several years now...since we moved back to the area. They make some of the best pizza we have eaten, have a voluminous selection of tap beers and their menu is full of goodness. Outside there is a large eating area, gazebo bar and a relaxing firepit. The staff is always friendly and we have... More

We ate here on a Tuesday night...it was busy, but no wait. We had great service and I would call it a "hidden gem" for food. Our food was SUPER good!
