The Tavern Grill

Reviewed By FridleyFoodie

We stopped in for a late lunch at the start of happy hour. It was nice, sunny, Minnesota Spring day so we opted for the patio near the little water fall. It was like being in Southern California. I had the Ruben sandwich with a side salad. Excellent! Most restaurant side salads are uninspired. Mine was nicely constructed with a variety of veggies/lettuce, and lots of everything. The Ruben I had was nicely done, with more corned beef than you'd get at a Chicago deli. It came with waffle fries that were also very good. My wife had a "Make your own salad" that she said was very good. Our server, Samantha, was very professional. She knew the menu like she wrote it. She was attentive without being too much so. Great place for lunch on the patio,,, we'll be back!Thanks for taking a moment to review us! We are glad you could join us for late lunch and kudos to Samantha! We appreciate your business and look forward to that future visit!

R J Riches Family Restaurant

Reviewed By Cris R

This place is amazing, mostly for their hash browns and their ridiculous sized portions. For maybe a buck more than you would pay at some chain, you receive wonderful fresh omelets and amounts of potatoes not to be believed. All wonderfully prepared and seasoned. The waitresses are both kind and funny and I have yet to see anyone (including myself...220lbs and six feet tall) leave without a leftover container. Their breakfast will feed you for the day. Have never seen breakfasts as good anywhere else.

I've eaten here several times for lunch and have ordered a variety of sandwiches. Each time I have eaten here it has been quite good. I can think of a particular Reuben I ordered here that I enjoyed a lot. The curly fries always seem fresh and the staff always friendly, if only missing a few teeth. You can eat here and be happy doing it.

I visited Blue Village Grill for lunch with my daughters. It was tasty and refreshing. American food with a Mediterranean twist! Everything was made fresh and tasted delicious. My picky eaters ate voraciously!

And didn’t think we were going to be able to order off the full menu. But with 10 minutes to spare, we ordered a lot of food! Flaming queso, bacon wrapped/cream cheese jalapeños, burgers, rotisserie chicken sandwich and then a skillet cookie for dessert. Nice atmosphere, great service, and food was a delicious surprise.

Reviewed By Jagi55025

Understaffed, uninterested staff, and service and food shows. It's not that is was bad, but it was sub-par given the competition that's out there. Happy hour menu was pretty good value-wise. We tried 3 apps and they were all pretty bland. Server was pretty clueless as was the extra staff who I'm not sure what they were supposed to be doing - mostly aimlessly wandering. And we weren't even in a hurry. Sad. Very poor management.Hi - Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear about the outcome of your visit.

Trappers Bar and Grill

Reviewed By Aimee C

Had breakfast at Trappers for the first time and it was very disappointing. I ordered the skillet and the portion only took up half the skillet. It also took a long time and was cold by the time it made it to our table. I'm eating them a three because I've had other non-breakfast meals that were fine.

Blue Collar Barbeque

Reviewed By rockminnesota

Absolutely delicious BBQ, this is the real deal not the fake/mass produced stuff. The head guy comes in early every morning to smoke the meat and you can tell the love he has for his food. Mac N Cheese is amazing as well! Highly suggest it! PLUS we used the catering for our wedding... SO MUCH MORE than just BBQ, just talk to Mark. Less expensive and much higher quality than the several other places we went to!

We stopped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff were welcoming. Service was speedy and attentive. Coffee cups were kept well filled; the (homemade?) strawberry jam served with toast was a tasty addition. We will definitely return.

Chef owned and food made to order. Chef Tim from Louisiana serving up authentic Louisiana cuisine and bringing the New Orleans experience to Minnesota. Live Jazz and Blues on Friday and Saturday, no cover. Great selection of craft beer and wine.

This place blew me away. Fantastic food, great beer selection and great free live music Fridays and Saturdays. Even the chef played harmonica with them. Pros: shrimp and Grits, jambalaya, live music, service is greatCons: decorations are dull but music makes up for it
