Excellent seafood in Bloomington. We just had a great lunch here. A very deluxe modern space with great service and very fresh well prepared food. There is more than just seafood on the menu (they even have a Juicy Lucy). But we could not resist going fishing. The 30 or so P.E.I. mussels at $10 were fantastic and filling - so plump and fresh tasting in a savory broth. The large bowl of gumbo ($9) was very respectable and the fresh fish tacos ($10) were very good. We finished with a wonderful delicately flavored Key Lime pie. Came with tasty bread and butter which kept getting refilled. They also serve a very good bottomless cup of robust coffee. People next to our booth had huge sandwiches that Paul Bunyan would be happy with. Lunch was very reasonable, especially when you see the prices for dinner. The happy hour menu is a bargain. Our server Jason was very polished, attentive and knowledgable. This is a fairly new branch of the venerable Wayzata place which serves only dinner and which we have enjoyed eating at. Because lunch at the Bloomington place is so reasonable and so good it is now our go to place for seafood.
Highlights so far: Mussels; Gumbo; Fish Tacos; Key Lime Pie; Walleye sandwich; Oysters; Calamari; Blackened Fish Sandwich
"...From the Land of Sky Blue Waters. From the land of pines' lofty balsams, Comes the beer refreshing, Hamm's the beer refreshing. Brewed where nature works her wonders, Aged for many moons, gently mellowed, Hamm's the beer refreshing, Hamm's the beer refreshing. From across the rippling water, Through the whisp'ring pines and birches, Comes the beer refreshing, Hamm's the beer refreshing. Comes a call to cool enchantment, Comes a call to cool refreshment, Hamm's the beer refreshing, Hamm's the beer refreshing. Hints of lakes and sunset breezes, Dance and sparkle in each glassful, Hamm's the beer refreshing, Hamm's the beer refreshing..." Dylan probably wished he'd written this while flying high on Hamms.
