So. I took a bridges walking tour of the city particularly noting the history and topographical significance of Saint Anthony’s Falls. It figures into why MPLS is where it is and why it is. As I crossed the Hennepin bridge, I found this oasis! Can...More

I hosted a party of 12 coming from three different countries. The restaurant was in a convenient, scenic location, the staff were attentive (both outdoors prior to the dinner, and when seated indoors). The food was delicious and we appreciated having a condensed menu with...More

We have done the "Inn" for several special holidays and have never been disappointed. We have asked specifically for Erin, who is a wonderful server, but everyone has been great. If there is a gap (not likely) Corey, the manager fills in seamlessly. The special...More

Very pretty, romantic place with terrific views of the Mississippi River, which is just outside the windows. Food is pretty good but not great. And it's pricey. You are paying for the experience. If you are looking for terrific food, this is not the place....More
