Christmas Point Wild Rice Company

This place is retail therapy pure and simple. I loved just walking through. Clothing, shoes, household and kitchen items and so many gift ideas. My husband got coffee and happily read the paper out on the front enclosed porch area, giving me a half hour to look around. I left with shoes, socks with a message and a beautiful black sweater that I can't wait to wear. I'll be back!

The kids really like it but the service wasn't real good. It was busy when we where there and there was only one person out front and she seemed crabby, when your asking that much for frozen yogurt it should be good product and good service.

The pizza was fresh and hot out of the wood fired oven
The flavor was OK but based upon the online reviews I expected better
The atmosphere was not up to my expectsations and it could have been cleaner
Overall I would give it 3.5 stars

Stopped here Saturday evening for our ice cream craving. Tried the mini Peanut Buster Parfait and it was just the perfect size. Mini menu is a great idea!

It's Caribou. Nice staff, fairly efficient as well. Cooked food is horrible. I don't go there for food though. Good drinks. So what's up with the huge table in the middle? Is this what millennials want, a community table? Makes it tough to meet for coffee and business. Get rid of it.

Prairie Bay Grill

Reviewed By timp2124 - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Chose this restaurant as an adventure. Went at 3 in the afternoon, so very few people in the restaurant. Waitress was very friendly and punctual. The two dishes we ordered were excellent and served nice and hot. The portions were great, both were able to take home an amble portion for lunch the next day. Some confusion at the end with waiting to get our bill. Seems our waitresses shift was over and another took over. Could have been some communication - would have been helpful. The young man that did attend to us was very polite and took care of us nicely.

The Barn

Reviewed By mhans4 - Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Barn has been popping up on my restaurant list for years. Today my husband and I arrived just in tim for the lunch rush. I ordered the loose meat sandwich with pickles, mustard, onions and a cheese slice on top. This is their specialty. It is insteresting, browned crumbled ground beef with raw onions and mustard mixed in with the meat
Pickles and cheese slice on top. Messy with okay flavors, that loose meat goes all over the table as you try to eat every bite. Many other cafe items looked good, I will give one of them my next visit.
Now let's talk about the pie selection, homemade, delicious, sour cherry pie like my grandmother made, lemon meringue with meringue three inches high, just the right tart to the lemon. Too many flavors to list, I can tell many return trips will be required.

Stoped in with extended family when in town for Christmas. I ordered the ghost burger, since I like spicy. Ghost pepper cheese, jalapeños and avocado. I was told that “it would make me sweat”. Here I sit, 100% dry but it did have a pleasant taste!

Grizzly's Grill and Saloon

Reviewed By Mandy S

My husband and I just came in for dinner. Pasta was great. My husband raved about his steak. Hostess was really nice. Waitress wasn't very friendly. Carded my husband as they discussed their ages. He was born in 77. She says "I'm 81." Thinking I'm being funny, I tell her oh she looks good! (For 81 y/o). Well, I'm thinking she took it the wrong way because she was quite short with us and unfriendly after that. I hope you didn't take it the wrong way Regardless, great meal. Just don't tell (bad) jokes to the waitresses.
