I had the salmon, which was delicious. My husband had the meatloaf, which he thought was average. We both had a pumpkin martini which we thought were average as well. Good service.

We stopped by last week for Halloween ladies night out and had their special, pumpkin spice martini, which was to die for. Just a dallop of cream on the top. Along with a spinich artichoke dip with lavosh crackers. It totally made our night an unexpectied delight.

Wonderful place to have dinner with friends and family. Right on Main St, so has street parking. You will want to get there a bit early to ensure being able to find a place to park.

Across the street from the Historical Mabel Tainter Theater this is a fun eatery with one of the nicest bars in town. From the atmosphere to the Zanzibar spices, you can take home to your own kitchen, you will step off of Main Street into a place where you expect to see a giant poster of Marilyn Monroe in the...

Went here because of all the great reviews. Overpriced for the meal. We had 2 beers, fish Wonton taco appetizer and 2 red snapper specials. Cost us $75 with a 15% tip. The problem was we had an average filet with no starch. All we got with the $20 special was an iceberg salad with tomatoes and feta. Seriously?! The... More

Our family enjoys coming here for tasty drinks and delicious food. The service is excellent with friendly, knowledgable servers. The food is unique but not so different that you can't find something to eat is you are not too adventurous. They are able to seat two large groups. the rest of the tables/booths seat 4 - 6. There are many... More

This is a fun little place in downtown Menomonie. It's not exactly cheap, but the food seems extremely high quality and it's tasty! Fun atmosphere too. Will go again when passing through. The veggie dishes with international spices are surprisingly good.
