“Great Ribs for a place that is NOT a "Rib Joint"”
Review of Pickwick Inn

Pickwick Inn
Ranked #58 of 90 Restaurants in Winona
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 November 2015

There was an article in a local newspaper about the Pickwick Inn reopening. This place has been around a long time, and has gone through a few owners. The new owner took out the carpet and took it down to the concrete floor --- which he refinished. He has really cleaned up this place ..... in the past it was some place that appeared to always need a good cleaning. It was Thursday night, and they had ribs on special .... very tender and well done. It is not often that you can find decent ribs in a place that is not a "rib joint". Several friends have also gone to this restaurnt and they also enjoyed their meals. The present menu is not real extensive ..... they have chicken, steaks, fish and burgers ..... I chatted with the new owner. He is trying different items and if they go over well, he is keeping them on the menu .... a sound business decision. Why offer something, if no one orders it. Try this "new" restaurant in a very beautiful location ..... you won't be disapointed.

My husband and I ate here and it was no prize. The food is well below average. I had the fish and it was like falling out of a jacket. The batter was too thick and the fish was raw inside. My husband had a burger that was overcooked and dry. His bun was slightly burned on the edges. The food was better to eat in the dark than in the light if you ask me. The only redeeming quality is it was a nice place with a view and that is all it had going sans the local company.

Beautiful space, no menu, no food. The bartenders stood around and talked to regulars while waited to be served. Not much parking either.

Stopped in for a drink with a local and he said the place just reopened not that long ago. It's a sweet little bar in the middle of nowhere with a spectacular view of the river with a cool waterfall. They just started serving food again. We did not eat so I can't tell you how the food was. I wish I had a cool bar like this by my house as I would visit quite frequently.
