If you come at the regular eating times you will wait. With alumni from D'Amico Cucina, Campiello and Masa in the kitchen and management and a menu that now includes pastas, meatloaf and seafood - there is no doubt that a new era has begun. Big windows. Wide open space. Impressive bar. High tin stamped ceiling. Dark woods. Historic pictures. Sports on the TVs in the bar.
The service is friendly and attentive. Happy hour menu is only in the bar - tap beers are $1 off. Gold Nugget burger with fries is $6.95 instead of $8.95. We really like the burgers, sweet potato fries and cole slaw. They have the annoying practice of up selling you on the extensive toppings for the burgers and the fries which they neglect to mention are $.50 - 1.75 each. The tap beers come in either 12, 16 or 22 oz as well as pitchers. The food (like about 95% of Minnesotans) is above average. Highlights: The GN burger, sweet potato fries, cole slaw and one of their tap beers from a pretty good selection is highly recommended - especially during happy hours.
