Our experience here was less than pleasing. Food not good, service just ok, over priced. Definetly not going back anytime soon.

I have eaten at the fine dinning area of this restaurant 3 or 4 times now with the same result. The food is horrible. They will tell you how they have this great chef that is so creative. The food has no flavor and it is just your usual foofy food with bad preparation. This time they out did themselves... More

Took 90 minutes and it wasn't good. The pasta is extra salty and just not good. Couldn't finish it. I don't recommend eating here. There are much better choices.

It had been years since we visited the Afton House and thought we would try it again. They put us in the old dinning room which had very little ambiance. The food was okay but for the price should have been much better. The waitress was obvious new and not very well trained. She asked to take our order when... More

Great service, Lynn was a wonderful waitress. We were with another couple and three of the group had prime rib...which I obviously should have had. I had the shrimp scampi, and it was about 5 shrimp in a whole lot of pinko bread crumbs. It was tasteless and not good. The rice was awful and the vegetables were cold. Certainly... More

Three of us went to the Afton House for dinner. We had the spicy chicken drops and tomato bisque soup. For entrees we had the almond walleye, dejon-style beef, and the beef with blue cheese sauce topping. For desert we shared the creme brûlée. All courses were excellent.

Good old fashioned "fancy" restaurant, in a bit of a time warp. Nearly empty in January (a little sad). We had prime rib and salmon - both good value and quality. I suspect it is much busier in the summer with boat traffic. Great service.

We have not stayed there - the overall look of the place put us off! It is in dire need of updating before it falls down. Had lunch on the patio (Current Restaurant) on a beautiful fall day, but the service was awful. It is quite a drive from downtown Mpls. or St. Paul. If we had paid a high... More

We were visiting the area from out of state over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We found this place online. We had a couple of people in our hometown say it was a nice place. We made reservations for their Thanksgiving dinner. Arrived a little early and were seated timely. They put us at a table against a wall at the... More
