This restaurant is off the interstate and slightly out of town for St. Cloud. It would have been a fine place to eat on site, but staying in a St. Cloud hotel and wanted my own glass of wine and no driving.

Just passing through on a long trip home. Recommended by the motel we stayed at, and we are so grateful. Nice ambiance, great food from scratch. Amazing salad with wonderful dressing. Incredible burger, with unique and flavourful toppings. Varied menu. Great service. Close to I-94. We will come again our next time through.

The waitress recommended the burgers and we both got different ones... DELICIOUS! I'd recommend the bourbon burger. Price wise , the were high average, but you get what you... More

The location is a little off putting. Essentially a truck stop parking lot, but don't let that deter you. The food and service was top notch. Excellent steak, cooked to perfection. Hot wing app was just average, but everything else was very good.
