Stopped by for dinner September 12, 2014. Signage out front is gone, a note on the door says closing for business at the end of August. I thought that they had a good business going here.

Excellent batter on onion rings and fries. The batter fried shrimp and walleye taste fresh as those on either coast and the tarter sauce is as good as it was in Winona in the 50s and 60s. Takes your taste buds for a pleasurable ride.
