General Store of Minnetonka

Reviewed By Donna K - Minnetonka, Minnesota

I always love visiting the General Store of Minnetonka. It's a good place to shop for unique gifts, kitchen gadgets, nostalgic games, jewelry, and lots of other goodies. Adding the bistro was brilliant--the food offerings are good, but priced a little high. I usually forego the expensive desserts for one of their giant popovers with a bowl of soup. Allow at least an hour to cover the first and second floor and add additional time for a bite to eat. Parking is easy and free.

We met a professional photographer here and had a wonderful assortment of places to have our family photos taken. The kids enjoyed running up and down and over the bridges, which seemed to be a popular thing to do. Although busy, we were still able to get pictures of without others in the background because of the way things are laid out. It appeared to be a lovely place to destress, paddle boat, play golf,

Rarely do you get a free museum with so much to see. Only noticed one exhibit which was not free. If I had to compare I would call it the Met of Minneapolis. Three floors of culture and you could easily spend three hours getting lost there. Highly recommend!!

Reviewed By Susan T

This is a great neighborhood place. Free popcorn, a nice big outdoor seating area and you can bring your own food! (Chipotle right around the corner!) I like wheat beer, which they don't always have, but I can usually find something. They also brew their own root beer and have root beer floats.

My teenagers and I (three of us) completed the Ruin Raiders escape room with time to spare, and had a blast doing it. The puzzles were well-constructed -- just difficult enough that you had to work at them a little bit, but not so difficult...MoreThank you so much for the wonderful review! I'm glad the three of you enjoyed Ruin Raiders, it was great chatting with you about your experience afterwards! We hope to see you again soon!

Bunny's Bar and Grill

Bunny’s opened at 4730 Excelsior Boulevard in St. Louis Park in 1933. One of the most often asked questions over the years has been, “Where did that name come from?” The story goes like this… The original owner, Henry Aretz, was in need of a sign for his new bar, Aretz’s Place. However, the sign maker had a different idea. He had made a mistake on a sign that read “Bunny’s” and, not wanting to scrap the job, asked Henry Aretz if he wanted to buy a sign “real cheap.” Henry, knowing a bargain when he saw one, bought the sign, and Bunny’s was started. The Aretz family owned Bunny’s until Gary and Sherman Rackner bought the bar in 1988. Bunny’s became a Bar & Grill, with the addition of a kitchen in the fall of 1988, and continued its tradition of a place where local patrons could relax with friends, catch a game, and also have a great meal. Unfortunately, Sherman passed away in 1997 and, due to the proposed redevelopment of Excelsior Boulevard, Bunny’s had to find a new location by the end of 1998. In January of 1999, Gary brought in a new business partner, Steve Koch, and they reopened Bunny’s in its current location. We are happy to be in St. Louis Park and look forward to being a fixture in the community for many years to come. In memory of Sherman Rackner, Gary’s father and business partner, we have named the back bar “Sherm’s.” Sherm, we hope you are proud!

Met another couple for lunch. Got crowded from 11:30 to 1:30. Ample parking and seating in three rooms make this one of the more spacious bars I have been to in a while. Service was fine. Wait staff friendly. Menu was large with lots of comfort food, sandwiches and soups. We ordered walleye tacos, a tavern burger and Hawaiian chicken and tomato basil soup. All food was prepared well and came out hot. Drinks were reasonably priced. Place has outdoor seating. The downside was it is noisy and not sure if kid friendly. Lots of TVs to watch your favorite sports.

Very pretty area to walk around with a lot of antique shops and other cool "mom and pop" shops. Lots of interesting architecture as well.
