    To stay warm on cold MN nights, stand in the stairwell between the rooftop patio and top floor patio. The fans will keep you warm. BONUS! You have a special view of the hostesses and other ladies

    Just like a beach vacation: plenty of icy cold beverages, lots of hot fried fish (the fish and chips and catfish po'boy are particularly recommended). Read more

    Oysters on the half shell in special during happy hour make a great accompaniment to your main course. The stuffed salmon and grilled tuna were absolutely amazing!

    Ended up waiting 40 minutes with at least ten open tables in site, because the hostesses forgot about us. It's amazing how inefficient you can be with four clucking hostesses.

    Oysters in a half shell, 'nuff said. Drinks are a wee on the pricey side, but the view of Minneapolis from the rooftops is well worth it.

    People need to stop worrying about how many "douchebags" are around. Earth to everyone, they are everywhere. Just enjoy the rooftop, some sesame crusted ahi tuna, perhaps some crab and maybe an oyst
