There is an historic Anderson House in Wabasha, MN where we had Thanksgiving Dinner this year. I have to say how pleased I am to have eaten there. The turkey was divine. I didn’t even need to gravy it up, which was good for me because I swore off potatoes, rolls, and anything white or carbohydrationized, except stuffing, or dressing, as some call it.
I had ham that was lean and juicy. I had a slice of acorn squash, baked and just really good. The green beans were fresh and in a fresh mushroom sauce, no cans here. I fell in love with the creamy cheesy onion dish which I have never before had. There was homemade cranberry sauce, apple pie and a nice side salad. I like to start with the pie. haha! We had iced tea and met some lovely people and had some great conversations.
The atmosphere is so sweet and historically correct, with some of the staff dressed as early settlers.
I do recommend for people to check this place out, to stay, to visit, to eat on special holidays and Sunday brunch.
There is a handicap access in the rear and the prices are reasonable. The food is really good home made style.
Call ahead for reservations 800-482-8188, or try stopping in as you drive through historic downtown Wabasha.
