Great Northern

Inspired by the Great Northern Railway, the menu encompasses the arduous journey through the northern expanses of the United States as well as the influences of all of those that built it. As the Great Northern Railway winds itself through the landscape, it crosses many diverse areas. From the coast of Washington to the Twin Cities, our menu embraces this heritage, and serves it in the comfort of the old railways. From fresh seafood and salads to fine steaks, we have something to offer everyone. View our menus online at www.gntavern.com to view both lunch and dinner selections.

"Love this place, it's a favorite if not the favorite. My steak was cooked perfect and the wood fire flavor is like no other. Cheese curds are delicious. Can't wait to come back."

"The noise level was so bad, it was difficult to hold a conversation. I specifically called on our reservation and told them we had to have a table. When we got there, they gave us a booth which our very pregnant dinner companion could not fit in. We then had to wait 15 minutes while they got us a table. Then our sever gave me the wrong order and she was unable to hear what I had ordered."

"Stopped in the bar for happy hour. Couldn't find a table, but the deals were great. Dinner service was great. Our waitress was very attentive. Dining area is definitely family friendly. The manager went over and above to help us out when our car battery died and we needed a jump. Already impressed with the service in the restaurant, but this extra effort made me want to write up a positive review!"

"This was a very unusual night for us at great northern. From the hostess to the wait staff it was poor. Usually service is great and that perfect blend of attentive. This night however service was so slow and the orders didn't come out correctly. A pulled chicken Cesar salad with everything on the side shouldn't be difficult. We will be back to try again but hopefully this isn't a new trend"

"We went to Northern Tavern as a last minute idea for New Year's Eve and everything went great. Food was great and we're glad we went."

"What a New Years Eve disappointment. Having made a reservations weeks in advance I expected a table in the dining room but instead was seated in the bar with no table cloth, no set-up and virtually no service. At 7:20pm we ordered and with a short menu of entrees they were already out of halibut. Bad kitchen management to be out of an entree so early in the evening. Manager passed us several times with no comments and our server was so busy with the back room tables we felt like we were always a second thought. Have spent many New Years and Mothers Day at the Great Northern, but never again."

"I love Great Northern. My friend and I always come on Saturday mid-morning and dine off of the "happy hour," brunch and regular menu. We have really enjoyed about everything we've tasted. We have also been on a double date and we all loved it. Both the patio and indoors are great to dine, nice bar seatng as well."

"Our family of four had our Christmas Eve dinner at Great Northern. We hadn't been there in quite some time and were happy they offered reservations. My daughter had a salad and the rest of us had steaks. Everything was great - the food, service and ambiance. It was a very nice evening and it reminded us that we should visit Great Northern more often."
