Nicollet Island Inn Bar Restaurant and Hotel

If the limestone walls of the Nicollet Island Inn Restaurant could talk, they would have riveting things to say. They would relate recent memories of romantic weddings and elegant special occasions, filled with the popping of champagne corks, laughter bouncing off the water from an outdoor patio and garden, and soft music wafting from the piano lounge. But the inn's more distant past is what distinguishes its true character; the building is one of the few that survived an island-wide fire soon after its construction in 1893. The site was rehabilitated in the early 80's. Double-hung windows have transformed the industrial exterior with welcoming turquoise awnings, and the old loading dock was glassed in to create a dining room with scenic views of the Mississippi River.

Though steeped in historical charm—including hand-carved woodwork and stained-glass windows—the inn appeals to the modern traveler with world-class amenities such as Pharmacopia organic bath products and plasma TVs.

Would come back again for the grand tour tasting menu!

We had a seven course meal. Every course was superb on its own. There was a depth of flavor present in everything we had. We haven't been so thoroughly pleased in quite a while! The service was perfect.
