Lots of choices from simple sandwiches and soups to full course meals. I had the broiled shrimp and it was excellent. The portions weren't very large but it was still way more than I could eat. Give it a try!

Nice menu, good beer and wine selection. Menu is very well balanced and quality of food is very high. Service is very friendly. We absolutely enjoyed beef and vegetables soup followed by Fresh Water Canadian Walleye. Highly recommended.

We ate here 5 times in one week as we knew we would consistently get great food and good service. The salmon was wonderful! Breakfasts are very creative.

We had breakfast last Friday morning with a rather large group. The staff was accommodating to our group and pleasant! Food was hot when it arrived and was delicious! I would recommend to anyone in the area to stop in!

While visiting the mayo clinic, we ate at this well recommended restaurant. It always seems to be busy and our food was OK, but not spectacular. Prices are on the low side and that may drive their popularity. Wait staff was very friendly but service...More
