Tria Restaurant, Bar & Event Center

Warm. Fresh. Real. Everything at Tria... from the seasonal, made-from-scratch, fresh food, friendly service to the warm and inviting ambience was designed to deliver these three simple qualities. From the moment you enter, it is apparent that Tria is not your ordinary restaurant. The natural woods and stone, wood-burning fireplaces, art and accessories all depict Tria's commitment to creating a delightful dining experience for their guests, offering something for everyone. The menu is fresh regional American and the extensive wine list was created to provide both selection and value (finally a restaurant that provides both!). Recognized as one of the "Twin Cities Best New Restaurants" by Mpls/St.Paul Magazine, the list of accolades continues to grow. You might say that Tria, like their wine, gets better with age. So if you're looking for a night out with someone special, dinner with the family, entertaining clients, or simply enjoying a quick bite with friends, come visit Tria!

Hajime Sushi Restaurant

Reviewed By Danniogirl12 - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Not normally what I would look for sushi in a small town, but it is really really good. Highly recommend the Devil Roll. Yum! As well, they have a happy hour menu from 2-5 pm I believe. Great pricing.

This Starbucks is located inside Target. Every time we stop, the staff is friendly and the product delivery consistent. Sometimes in stores like this, you get average drinks but not this one. Whenever we are in town, this is our place to go.

Reviewed By John T - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Well if you like to have annoying teens serve you well this is your place. I sat for over five minutes in front of the intercom waiting for service. I said hello five times before someone answered. There was five teenage workers doing nothing and got annoyed when I put my order in. Avoid...

Bistro la Roux

Chef owned and food made to order. Chef Tim from Louisiana serving up authentic Louisiana cuisine and bringing the New Orleans experience to Minnesota. Live Jazz and Blues on Friday and Saturday, no cover. Great selection of craft beer and wine.

I live near this restaurant and had never been there. I met a friend there for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The place was packed but the service was good and so was the food. It's a smaller place, even though they just expanded in the last year but it's worth a try.

Fiesta Cancun Grill & Bar

Reviewed By Todd P - Bloomington, United States

Absolutely loved it. Food was flavorful, fresh and portions were very fair for the price. Guacamole fresh made at your table was a treat. I felt like i was back on vacation in Cabo. We really enjoyed the Cancun Dip. Packed with shrimp, scallops and crab it is a meal in it's self.

I have tried other Mexican restaurants in the area but will continue going back to Fiesta Cancun.

The location is in a strip center at a busy intersection. The service was friendly and efficient. The food is fresh and tasty. The hash browns were cooked just right.

Family went there tonight for dinner. Third time there and had good experiences both times. Unfortunately my wife’s fish and chips were cold and my brother in laws corned beef did not have any cheese on it. Seems like they were overwhelmed or short staffed.

I have tried this locations many many times and swear I will never return again but keep getting pulled in by the demon caffeine. The service here is awful. Slow service with bad attitude, uninformed about their product, boiling their green tea, dirty bathrooms. Once after being handed an open top boiling tea another person bumped into me spilling it all over my hand and arm, I raced to the bathroom for cold water, no one even took the time or effort to check on me. Recently on a Saturday morning spent 17 minutes waiting at the drive thru for 4 cars. I am done with this location for good. Oh but the coffee is good.

The Tavern on Main

Reviewed By Susan A

My husband and I ate dinner here and each ordered a hamburger basket. Waitress (very nice lady) asked if we wanted anything on the burger in which we both asked for lettuce, tomato and extra pickles. Food was tasty until the check arrived... We were each charged $1.50 for lettuce and tomato...yes $ 0.75 for a single piece of lettuce and $ 0.75 for a slice of the stem end of the tomato! As for the pickles no extra charge and no extra pickles either. Just glad I didn't want cheese!
