I love this restaurant. It's very romantic. The food is presented beautifully. I had the duck, which was good, down to the carrots and asparagus. Nothing was ordinary. My husband ordered the salmon. We shared our meals. It was fantastic. I cook, but I would not be able to make something like this salmon dish. The meal was more expensive than we usual. Totally worth it
Delicious wine, salad, and entrees. I had the salmon, and my husband had the beef wellington. We loved them both! Also really appreciated the great service.
Tangled up in blue is out of this world. They've been extremely accommodating and nice about including my vegetarian sister. We liked it when Ross was the owner/operator. It is just as good now. Highly recommend it.

Stopped by for dessert. Quaint old fashioned building with hardwood floors and stamped tin ceilings. Not a lot of seating, but they do have a nice outdoor patio to enjoy. They have dozens of ice cream flavors. I ordered the brownie hot fudge sundae. Pretty sure it had fresh whipped cream on top and was big enough for me to share with the kids. The prices are pretty high, 4-5 dollars for a cone, my sundae was $6.25. But I guess it's a cultural necessity to stroll the summertime streets of Taylors Falls hand in hand with your family while enjoying a sweet treat, so I don't regret it.

We stopped in for lunch today because we were craving a burger and this place fit the bill. It's a very small place with a few tables and about 8 bar stools. There are video games, a pool table and a couple of tvs above the bar. It's a pretty standard bar, but clean. The cook/bartender was very fun. She was attentive and seemed to enjoy her job as she put a lot of love into making our burgers. The burgers were very fresh made to order and came on soft buns topped with your choice of fixins. They tasted great and were complimented by some of the best crinkle cut fries I've had in a long time. Top that off with a beer and it was a very good lunch! Order the supreme burger with a half order of fries. You won't be sorry.
Outside the Twin Cities, up Hwy 8, past little towns where the Masonic lodge is still the community cornerstone and some signs are still in Swedish; past Hazelden where the Boy suggested I stop in and stay for awhile; not quite as far as the casino where I waited in the car in protest; is a little dive that serves the best bar food in America. On a little grill behind the bar, the lanky guy in the hockey jersey will cook up a French Dip for $6.50 that will bring tears of joy to your eyes. The Boy orders this happy sandwich every time we stop in here. Since I know I will finish half his meal in addition to 3/4 of mine, I try to change it up with the burger menu (it's still the best representation of bar food: let's not complain about my lack of imagination). The mushroom burger is my nirvana. On Friday, the bartender made the best Bloody Mary I've ever tasted. On Sunday (yes, twice in one weekend), we tried out the Bloody bar where I doused my white shorts in Clamato after the Boy warned me that the cap was loose. I don't listen well...and apparently I felt the need to shake things. Perhaps Hazelden *might* be the best place to write my next Yelp review. Since we are now regulars, we casually discussed the Deadliest Catch muted on the tv with the hockey-jerseyed bartender and he vented about how hard it was to get his friend to stop leaving his tobacco spit bottles everywhere. Welcome to hometown America.
A greasy burger sounded about right after skiing away the afternoon at Wild Mountain. As my two friends and I entered Border Bar and grabbed a high-top table near the window, we got a whiff of greasy air and knew we'd come to the right place. There were no other patrons inside the small bar when we arrived, and thank goodness we got our food order in to the kitchen before a huge family of 12 (along with 3-4 other groups) poured into the joint. It got a lil' crazy. The one employee totally took care of us and seemed to be managing everybody else rather well too (considering everyone arrived at once). A multi-talented lady, she did the waiting, the bartending AND the cooking. Though there wasn't much to the waiting aspect, as she just hollered at us (in a friendly way) and asked us what we wanted to drink. I think it's best to order food and drinks at the bar and then go back to your table---there's a sign that says so. They call your food order when it's ready and you go grab it at the counter. After we had already ordered drinks, we noticed a build-your-own Bloody Mary Bar that they have on weekends. Looked like they had some good stuff on it. We played this board game called Rack-o while we waited for our food. It was in a basket with a cribbage board on the window sill. My patty melt ($6) hit the spot. Juicy burger + melty cheese + grilled onions + marble rye = yum. I wish it had real swiss cheese instead of that American-style swiss cheese that melts like a Kraft single. It didn't ruin the sandwich by any means, but real cheese would improve it. We split a big order of crinkle cut fries ($5) between the three of us. She portioned them out in our burger baskets too, which I thought was nice. My only real criticism is that the bar's surfaces have a bit of a grimy film on them, so I do think it could use a very good cleaning. Despite the dust, this is a totally solid spot for burgers and beer in Taylor's Falls!

My family and I visited here this past fall during our campout @ Interstate State Park stay. Schoony's is a very nice place with lots of flavors to choose from. It is one of the few places where you can get coconut ice cream (one of my all time favorites and hard to find). I thought their hot food was mediocre @ best - you can get much better food/service next door @ Borders and head over here for the ice cream.
Schoony's is a nice malt shop/pizza joint right off of Hwy 8 as you enter Taylor's Falls. It makes for a fun stop especially if you are hiking the glacial potholes area or taking a riverboat ride along the St. Croix. Schoony's seems to have a variety of ice cream flavors which is always impressive. Not as many as a place like the Grand Ole Creamery in St. Paul, but still a wide selection. They also offer shakes and malts in the majority of ice cream flavors--being shake enthusiasts, my brothers and I had to try a couple. I sampled the hot fudge shake and what I believe was strawberry banana malt. They are made with real ice cream and topped with whipped cream, a cherry, and a cookie. You can always taste the difference at places that make authentic shakes/malts. This place does that well. I didnt try anything else, but Ive heard the pizza is good there. The interior is cleary very old--it's given away by the ornamental tin ceilings. They have an old school looking soda bar area in the back with a few old games and a vintage looking Coke machine. They have outdoor seating as well. I am not aware of how the parking situation is, but I know that it can be tricky at times to park in these popular little river towns if you are there during peak times. I parked in the State Park parking lot just down the street for $5 (it seemed worth it). Pros: Nice stop for a snack if you are in Taylor's Falls on a hot day, wide variety of real ice cream shakes/malts, located right by the river in Taylor's Falls Cons: Shakes/malts are pricey ($5.50), they charge a fee for using a credit card, not worth driving out of the way to go to
Visited for the first time last weekend with friends. We were served our ice cream cones quickly even though there was quite a long line. All in all, a good experience, great ice cream. Will return again next summer. This ice cream is every bit as good as Nelson's in Stillwater!

Chisago House

Stopped here after completing the "Rugged Maniac" at Wild Mountain this past weekend. (We stopped here because it literally seemed like one of the only options in Taylor Falls.) My friends and I pulled up a stool (the seating/atmosphere is almost cafeteria-like) and were greeted promptly by the waitress. She was attentive, friendly, and personable. The food at the Chisago House is extremely reasonable in price and descent in quality. (I would suggest their short stacks because they are as addictive as crack/cigarettes/alcohol/whatever comparison works for this review). By no means would I say you will be "blown away" by this place but I think it definitely deserves more than one star. Count on this place for cheap food, descent service, and an overall quaint dining experience.
The burger is just normal. I dont feel it was special or different to other places serving burgers. The ambience is actually nice.
This place has good food, good service and an all around great place to grab a bite to eat. On Sunday they have all you can eat breakfast buffet for under 10 bucks! Super yummy corned beef hash and delicious hashbrowns. It isn't fine dining but an all around solid place!
