Satisfy cravings for the sea with the fish 'n' chips ($12.99) and haul palates back onto dry land with a sizzling fajita ($12.49) bathed in a mélange of peppers and monterey jack cheese.

The stoli doli ($8.95), a house-infused smooth pineapple vodka, shares rank with a tangy top-shelf margarita ($8.95) and a wide array of beers.

Diners at this locally owned eatery can taste its eponymous Amber Ale--crafted by Schell's Brewery in New Ulm--in a tall, cool glass at the laid-back bar or as a beer batter that's slathered on a tender chunk of walleye ($16) in the capacious dining room. To keep your gullet in shape, gobble filet mignon dripping with meat moisture ($22) or grab a freshly made omelet or sandwich from the extensive lunch and breakfast menus.

Since 1956, Dick's Bar & Grill's welcoming waitstaff and suds-wielding barkeeps have filled bellies with classic American fare and frosty on-tap brews while its patrons socialize over bingo and other activities.

Wild Turkey bourbon buffalo wings ($7.50) strum twangy tones accompanied by a percussion section of cool blue cheese. Chefs sizzle half-pound beef patties, melt monterey jack and cheddar, and stack crisp bacon slices for the Real Billy burger, sweetened with smoky barbecue sauce ($9.25). Reminisce about the days of barrel-transportation and 30-piece-choir telegrams with a cold draft beer such as local brewer Schell's dark beer ($4.50), Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss ($3.95), or Killian's Irish Red ale ($3.95).
At Lemon Grass Thai and Sushi, Chef Ann Sengmavong draws from her travels across Asia, Europe and the United States to cultivate a menu of colorful, fragrant curries, entrees of delicate fish and savory roast duck, and fresh sushi. Thai dishes seamlessly blend complementary flavors, such as the Nuea-Sawan's savory dried beef mixed with spicy ginger and garlic, or the Black Out's earthy mix of shiitake mushrooms accented by a zesty black bean sauce. Diners at the sushi bar witness the craftsmanship and knife juggling skills that goes into each spicy salmon maki or seabass nigiri. Autumnal orange walls and blonde wood furnishing creates an earthy, inviting atmosphere in the dining area. When not whipping up curries or pan-frying noodles in the kitchen, Chef Ann teaches curious patrons in the art of Thai cooking with group lessons at Crocus Hill or private classes in clients' homes.
The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001.
Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.
