First time I have actually eaten in a restaurant for at least a year. Food, service, experience were good. Didn't know if they wanted a mask on or not when walking through the restaurant. I wore mine, but would have been nice to have a sign to let us know.

CW’s is always great. Our reservation didn’t go through for whatever reason. But we still were seated outside even though it was a beautiful day.

The server was over the top!! He was very attentive and gracious. The food came promptly and was yummy. All was wonderful!... I just have one suggestion, ...the hostess was going to seat us in the large room on the right as you enter..it appeared very lackluster and bland...not inviting at all. I would not want to ever dine in that room....very boring., no ambiance. I looked in the bar area which was very pleasant and asked to be seated there which was really nice, The back room with the white brick was really cool! That is where I would always want to sit, but it wasn’t open.

Had a wonderful young server who was eager to help in any way he could. With a big smile he helped five older ladies with all their questions and needs. Flats were half price that day and I brought home lots of yummy leftovers to my husband. When we were first seated on your high chairs he quickly moved us to a quiet table in the back when we asked. We will be back.

Ambient noise level was pretty high, but them we're older folks. Could use some sound-absorbing surfaces. Otherwise, a good experience and we'll come again.

Service was excellent considering how busy wait staff are. Service was excellent in prior visits as well. My only complaint with this visit was that the music was too loud; my 3 table companions and I had a hard time conversing & hearing each other. However, we'll still return!

French fries were great! Meatloaf sandwich was yummy. We order a side of mashed potatoes. They were tasty but room temperature. Our waiter was very nice and brought us another serving but they were room temp too. He tried! Not his fault.

The woman who seated us was VERY VERY unpleasant (verging on rude), but fortunately, we had a waiter who redeemed the experience. He was attentive and funny. The food was good and hot. It is VERY LOUD and the rooms off the bar were all closed (one for a staff meeting). Difficult to carry on a conversation with the music and the acoustics. It is a bar, however, so I'm sure most people don't go there to have a dinner and conversation.

Overall, excellent. Your Friday night fish fry is a welcome treat that takes us back to our Wisconsin roots. We feel there's a huge void in MN and especially Twin Cities area for good Friday fish fry's. A little pricy but the cod was excellent and an "all you can eat" adds great value. We hope to be back often.
