    I usually go here for the ice cream. But they have a lot of different drinks. Nice stop when you're out for a walk or in for one of the mini-festivals.

    The fried oyster po' boy sandwich (also known in New Orleans as an oyster loaf), at $12.95, is a delightful study of contrasts of textures and flavors. Read more

    If there is a better grilled catfish po' boy sandwich somewhere else, I haven't tasted it.

    Grab a Surly tallboy. If you have time, stick around and try the sake oyster shooters.

    The never-changing basic menu includes favorites like the fish tacos, shrimp po'boys, and the famous oil pan (18 shrimp, 12 oysters, and pickled herring on ice). [Eater 38 Member]

    Everything is good. I especially love the fried calamari, fried fish basket, crawfish po' boy, and tilapia tacos.

    Treat the kids to some fish tacos and a scoop of Sebastian Joe's ice cream. Eating great food on a patio near the rushing falls, the kids will easily remember this spot in the park.

    Etiquette when it's super crowded: place your order and THEN stake claim on a table.

    Always super busy so try to go a little before or after normal lunch hours. And be sure to check out the falls right behind the restaurant. Read more

    Fresh fish, live bluegrass (with a saw player!), and all my fellow progressive neighbors. A South Minneapolis gem! Staff is also killer.

    Nothing can beat eating outside in the park except when you're eating outside in the park with a po boy in front of you. Quality seafood, beautiful setting - bike there and you'll burn it off!

    Beware the falling acorns! :) great entertainment if you don't get bonked on the head!

    Try the shrimp po'boy! The tobasco sauce on it makes it amazingggg!

    There are 2 lines here. 1 for ice cream and beer, other for food so it helps to walk in and actually look.

    This place is perfect for a date, lunch or dinner. Get to the amazing River View theater for a 3 dollar movie after words. Read more

    The wait is super long in the summer, but the fish tacos and shrimp baskets are worth it!

    I'm glad my wife was with me, I had the fish po boy, she had the shrimp basket we shared and both were amazing. I don't think I could pick one over the other. Bring a friend to maximize tastiness

    We had an order of fish tacos and veggie tacos. It was delicious and enough food for 2 people. And the falls are gorgeous.

    This place is perfect on a beautiful summer day. I had the crab cake sandwich, and I also tried the grilled marlin tacos and the vegetable gazpacho. Yummy. Great beers as well, both Surly and Summit. Read more

    stopped there twice on Sunday during my bike rides. Beer, fresh fish, outside seating, in a park! what else could you need? GO!

    Plan to wait in line for a time, because they are not super fast at taking orders. My wife says grumpy people (me) can console themselves by drinking a beer or eating ice cream while waiting in line.

    Unless you love waiting for at least an hour, don't bother going here on a weekend night. Or a weekday night.

    Both the grilled marlin tacos and veggie tacos are fantastic! Wash them down with an ice cold Surly while watching the falls. Perfect summer evening.

    Nice outdoor atmosphere. The fish things are great along with crawfish and other seafood baskets. Good beers available. Wait can be long. Order taking process inefficient, not being able to see menu

    Best fried fish I have ever had. Really nice place to go in the summer. There are a lot of cute dogs that walk through the park.
