Once a year they offer a all Norwegian night food. Almost everything was very good. I only say almost because some people prefer not to eat a certain Norwegian delicacy. Come early the line gets really long.

Great buffets, that many locals flock to...which says a lot about the food! It is family owed and operated and has been a successful 70's-esque diner ever since I can remember!! Recommend if you are traveling between Elrosa or Sauk Centre & Grove Lake!! North of Brooten!

Average small town diner with below average food. Service is very friendly but the place is not well maintained with torn upholstery in the booths. It's just very old. They'd do good to give it a little make over.

Special dinners...The all you can eat pork chop feast. About twice a year, served with excellent side dishes and sweet corn. And then deserts.

A local place out the middle of nowhere, so maybe that's its charm. Prices are OK and the specials (prime rib on Saturday) might also be the draw. Decor is 50s-60s signs and such so there is some character. And the service is friendly. But, considering a half hour drive (for me, anyway), and the fact that the food is... More
