My daughter insisted we make the trip from our Wisconsin home an hour away for the excellent fish fry. I was disappointed. The dinner came with two small tempura breaded filets along with a child's portion of coleslaw and wedge french fries. Their was far more tempura than fish which, once you found it, tasted ok. The coleslaw was below... More

I wish they had different wines offered as their house wines (chardonnay and merlot, yuck). But they had a nice sparkling rose for $7 and their french fries with cheese fondue was very good.

We had a two to three-hour wait for service to my daughter's car while I was visiting her in Minneapolis. Not far from our service location we found this delight!

I think this spot is best for a small group. They are not a very large restaurant. Food is very tasty, but restaurant can get loud.

We tried this cafe about 2 yrs ago and weren't impressed. I wanted to feel good about this spot because it is locally owned, in a great SW Mpls location. Decided to give it a 2nd try, but we are disappointed again. The noise is excessive. period. There are acoustical remedies for this, don't know why mgmt hasn't addressed the... More

I've been to this place many many times, as it's close to family members' home. I'd travel just about any distance to eat here, however. The truffle fries are my favorite, closely followed by the lamb sliders. The size on the truffle size is enough for three to share quite nicely, as my sister-in-law and I have shared one and...

I went here tonight with a girlfriend for dinner to catch up and it was the perfect place! It's quaint with the sense of laid back sophistication. The food was great- it was taco Tuesday and I had the chicken gyro special on fry-bread which was reminiscent of a hard shell taco- delicious! I would definitely recommend this place for... More

The food was great, especially the huge onions rings. Unfortunately there was a really long wait. The other downside was that the restaurant was really noisy. We felt we had to shout at each other in order to communicate.

For many years in Minneapolis there was a Tom Thumb convenience store located here and when it went out of business, the restaurateurs bought this neighborhood location and made it a quaint small restaurant. It is named after Maude who was a member of the Minneapolis Park Board and the restaurant has this written history on its menus and other... More
