Great presentation and good food. I enjoyed my meal of salmon and mashed potatoes, though the potatoes oddly reminded me of instant potatoes. The flavor was just...off. Still, the ambiance and views were great, they had a nice drink menu, and plenty of gluten free...More

Yes, they take reservations for inside. When nice weather comes to Minnesota(tee hee) you may wish to dine on the patio and that is first come, first seated. In the mean time, call for a reservation and ask for a window seat!
