Their food is made from a "scratch kitchen."
The Tavern is a great place for people of all ages. Their food is made from a "scratch kitchen." From homemade soups and breads to amazing desserts, including my favorite, the hot fudge brownie sundae!! Try them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Located in the basement of a historic inn on the river. You will find limestone walls, wood floors, and stain-glass windows. Service is great, but you will return for the great prices, and quality menu. A short drive from the Twin Cities...it's well worth the trip! Enjoy.
