- Patio/Sidewalk Dining
City Pages' Description
Birch's roadside supper club on Highway 12 in Long Lake serves younger diners in baseball caps and tank tops who look like they just hopped off their Harleys, alongside older patrons in khakis and sweaters who look like they just docked their yachts. Burt Joseph, a Minneapolis caterer, took over the former home of Ravello, made the cuisine more casual, and put in a big bar. Among the list of pizzas, sandwiches, walleye, and fried chicken, the zucchini fries were the standout. They tasted like a hybrid of French fries and eggplant Parmesan and were good enough that a kid actually set down his portable video game to sample a few.
Tips from foursquare
Try the Buckhorn Chicken. This generous half-chicken is moist on the inside with just the right amount of crispy spice on the skin.—Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, February 2011
Cute cozy restaurant... The steak & blue cheese salad is yummy! Their flat bread pizzas are also really good. They have great weekly specials! Service is good and friendly!
Cute restaurant, definitely try the buckhorn chicken! And the Caesar salad is amazing.
Wow. Slow service. Been sitting about 30 minutes. No server. Go to applebees instead. Booooo! And and awfully dirty deck! Yuck!
If waiting twenty minutes for your waiter is the experience your yearning for, than this is the restaurant for you!
