My wife and stopped by today looking for the best prime rib buffet at the Hinkley Casino. We always love to stop by on the way from Duluth. We were disappointed to find that they are no longer offering the buffet at Hinckley Casino. But we saw a really cool looking restaurant, The Winds Steakhouse. The ambiance was great. Beautiful...

They offer a monthly special, at a fair price. Menu is pretty average, mid priced. Nothing memorable. Atmosphere is very so, so. Unless your into wore out, and well used. Service is spotty, because they refuse to hire enough people to give quality service. Avoid the rush, eat early or late....................or prepare to WAIT! A very long wait!

I should have known better than to try an asian type dish at a steakhouse. The other people I was with seemed to enjoy their stuff so probably just a bad choice on my end. Stick with the burgers and steaks and don't order the thing that doesn't look like it belongs.

An up scale restaurant in all ways. Wine selection is good with full bar service. Servers are attentive. Menu is excellent. Subdued atmosphere. A truly enjoyable experience

What a wonderful surprise! and with no chef of record on staff at the time! Is the best between Twin Cities and Duluth and puts many 'fine dining' locations of those metro areas to shame. Could not find one miscue during the dinner...and for us that is next to impossible. Even the bread basket was delectable. Outstanding Service and attention... More

We stopped in since we were staying at the hotel prior to Thanksgiving. The ambiance was comfortable and the food was delicious. I had the pork chops and a Chardonnay and it was delicious; my wife had the filet and a Cabernet and it was quality. They got busy so service could have been better, but that wasn't a big... More

Was impressed by the atmosphere. The server was really attentive and helpful. I ordered the halibut. The best part of the meal was our app which were crab cakes. Really good. The salad was great as well. However the halibut was over done and really dry. Pretty expensive for dry fish.

We love this steakhouse! We always request "Heidi" as a waitress, we adore her. Service is top notch and so is the food! I have never had a bad meal or service here! From the appetizers (asparagus), salad, bread basket (unique breads and butters), to the meals this restaurant is 1st Class! We've eaten at all the restaurants on site... More

Excellent food and wait staff. The surroundings are also quite nice. The place is a bit on the spendy side.
