If you want the freshest walleye without catching it yourself, try Tavern on Grand. From the outside, it appears your walking into a neighborhood bar. The setting inside is casual, and that's fine, because their effort is in the food. They have an interesting assortment of appetizers, but that's not why you go their. It's the walleye. Broiled, blackened, deep fried. It's all good. And don't forget the homemade coleslaw.

We visited the Tavern on Grand for a nice Minnesota meal. Most of us enjoyed one of the Tavern's recipes for walleye. I really enjoyed their bearnese sauce which was homemade. The wild rice soup was okay too. Overall, the restaurant felt a little overpriced for the quality/atmosphere, though I'm not sure what other restaurant in the area offers this type of menu. The Tavern does a good job and is worth the visit if you're hankering for Minnesota's State fish!

The food we had at the tavern was good, but the feel of the restaurant is more casual n fine dining and the price for the meal was the most expensive we had on our trip. The service was ok, and décor is plain.

Went with 4 people, and only one dish came out wrong. Waitress took our order, and we never saw our waitress (Margaret) again, (another server brought our food). After looking for her for 10 mins, I eventually asked another waitress to find her, since we were out of beverages and my wife's grilled walleye (not "blackened") came out loaded with pepper and some other spice, and she could not eat it. I would never judge a restaurant on making a mistake, rather how they recover. We went on a Monday night (Aug 12th), and I don't know who the woman manager was, but she jumped all over the situation, questioning the server and the cook. She came to our table, explained everything that happened, and In literally minutes she had everything resolved. Not sure what her name was, but she handled the situation magnificently, which is why I can not give Tavern on Grand a bad review... not to mention that the fried Walleye & Walleye tacos came out great!
