One of the most attractive restaurants in St. Paul. We had salads, a burger, steak, amazing hash potatoes (see photo below), and a chocolate sundae. The burger was very good (and $15). The steak was good but not great (at $28). Hash browns were very...More

Extensive menu with uncommon items. The escargot is AMAZING. Crab dip and Chicken Pot pie are average. Meat and fish overpriced. I recommend just sharing the great menu of appetizers.

Found this restaurant through trip advisor and read all the positive comments. I came here with some business friends and for the price of a steak, I found it to be chewy and bland. I won’t be returning next business trip.

I love the St. Paul grill. They have a professional staff that is very accommodating. A dedicated gluten free menu was appreciated by our party. Specialty drinks and fine wine are always available. One of my favorites and highly recommended.

This isn't an inexpensive place, I would say dinner for two with drinks would be approximately $140
