Husband ordered a Grilled Cheese and it was 2 slices of processed cheese on Texas Toast and the cheese was not even melted. Tomato basil soup he ordered was very watery and not much flavor. I ordered a burger and a root beer float and she asked me if I wanted the float right away and I said 'Sure'. Sat... More

I had the buttermilk pancakes and a side of bacon, and my husband had the Mess, a sort of hash which was MUCH better than it sounds. A lot of good food for significantly less than what we'd pay in the Cities.

Bev's is our go to for breakfast when we are in Red Wing. Steadiwheat pancakes are delicious! As are the skillets! Service is quick. This place is small so their may be a wait. It's well worth it!

Had to stop here as my Mom's name is Bev (and she is a great cook). The place was packed and stayed that way. The wait staff were wonderful, very friendly, upbeat, and stayed on top of things. The food got mixed reviews from the four of us - good basic breakfasts, not fancy. Our only real complaint was about... More

The place is small and cramped, but the breakfast was great. Try the country skillet. Word of warning ... they take only cash.

This is the classic small town cafe experience. I had the chicken fried steak with sourdough toast and it was excellent. My wife had scrambled eggs with bacon and wasn't as impressed. The locals probably hate that out of town folks have discovered this place, but that's the way it goes. This is a cash only cafe so come prepared... More

As out-of-town visitors we were unsure of a selection and this location is a short drive from the steamboat landing. We found the place busy for lunch, a bit cramped. There was a good variety of selections on the menu. Our meal was hearty. Service was a bit slow with the crowd but we made it in time to be... More

We went there for breakfast. The omelette contained all canned ingredients and I think it had processed cheese, possibly like a velveeta. The bacon was super fatty and I had to discard most of it. Granted, the price was reasonable. But still, not worth the visit.

Stopped in Bev's for breakfast while visiting Red Wing. The folks were all so welcoming and friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. All homemade with large portions we felt we really got our moneys worth here. We were hiking all day, and with this large breakfast we did not need lunch.
