I read other reviews and thought why not? The staff was nice but seemed a bit confused over who was serving who. Overlookig that, the food was good and it was nice to sit outside of the deck.

We took our exchange student here after watching Grumpy Old Men. We had excellent service. It was such a beautiful view watching the sun set down behind the Mississippi. The walleye was so good! I think I would recommend for lunch or dinner.
