Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, or, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of burgers, steaks, seafood, drinks, and more at Vic's, downtown on Main Street.
At Vic's, diners gaze at the Minneapolis riverfront through floor-to-ceiling windows while the dining room's furnishings—a Venetian-plaster sculptural bar, a fireplace, exposed wood-beam ceilings—surround them with lavishness. The menu offers equally lavish spreads for plates. Vic's signature lump crab cakes ($12) preheat appetites for the hearty "V" burger ($12), basted in rich demi-glace, or the shore dinner ($20), a platter of breaded Walleye fillet with shore potatoes. Vic's also boasts a wide-ranging list of wines that, combined with its upscale fare and elegant atmosphere, make it the ideal spot for a romantic meal or a gigantic meal. Complimentary parking is available in the attached St. Anthony Falls Parking Ramp. Vic's is located on the east side of the river in downtown Minneapolis.

- Vic’s is located on the Minneapolis riverfront, making it a perfect combo of city skyline meets nature. Right next door, Tuggs Tavern nearly shares this patio space and offers a bit more relaxed atmosphere, making the two in a tight race for who’s better. – Sara Boyd, CBS Minnesota
- The view of the river was fantastic – Jason K., Yelp, Pracna on Main
As night falls, the lights of downtown Minneapolis jump to life and ripple across the river. The view sprawls out beneath the floor-to-ceiling windows at Vic's Dining, St. Anthony Falls and Stone Arch Bridge extending naturally out before the dining room. There, silverware clatters steady arpeggios on plates laden with lump crab cakes and short ribs. Chefs prepare the eatery's signature fresh Kobe beef burgers and marinate ribeye steaks in Cajun spices overnight. Glasses click together above these dishes, hinting at a lengthy wine list, which fuels romance more effectively than doves released in small-claims court.
