We love shrimp, and this is the first place we have encountered spiralized shrimp. This dish is on the appetizer menu. Very tasty and somewhat like popcorn shrimp. The wild rice soup is also excellent! Quick service.

Nice local spot to stop during our drive to the Cities. Service was great! We loved the chipotle chicken nachos--great flavor. And my husband enjoyed the Jammy burger. Definitely would stop here again next time.

Met childhood friends for lunch. Had the spicy poblano white cheddar soup and ceasar salad and both were very good. The cobb salad looked good as well as the rueben. We were all pleased with our food.

From homemade wing sauces, pasta, steaks & burgers, they have a little bit of everything to offer. Hand cut boneless wings are so tender & perfect. The adult mac & cheese is to die for. Moms chocolate cake was the best finish to our visit....More
