Visited here a number of times and found the service to be excellent. No complaints about the food. The crab cake appetizer and burgers are excellent. A little pricey, but not out of line for a downtown Minneapolis hotel. Quiet - not overly busy when...More

After reading some of the reviews here and other sites, I was skeptical when my wife and I walked in at 7:30 on a Thursday night. When the first thing I noticed was the fact that there wasn't a single person seated in the restaurant,...More

Went to lunch here today, worst $16 hamburger ever. Bun was dry and over toasted, the burger was overcooked , dry and flavorless. Save $13 and go to Burger King and have a better meal.More
