T-bones Grill and Bar

T-bones Grill and Bar
260 Main Street West
Wabasha, MN 55981
11 am – 10 pm daily

We floated into T-bones yesterday for the first time ever around noon time and were happy to see a familiar face. Darryl, a waiter we had met in another establishment was now working here for the same owner of both places. Anyway, he was glad to show us the menus and explained that we might be able to get some of the dinner menu items at lunchtime.

The atmosphere was really neat. Very high ceilings with dual floor seating and outdoor terrace seating as well. We are just a stone’s throw away from that mighty river, the ol Mississippi, and she is very high, but not that high yet. Whheew!

There are wine racks on one wall and long paper rectangle light fixtures drifting up by the ceiling. There is lots of natural lighting and there is a small sit down bar where you can watch tv and the top half of the kitchen goings on. Modern tile floor and all steel bathrooms, to boot! Very well done.

For lunch I had the Ceasar’s salad with chicken because I am watching my weight as I gained a few pounds over this dreary winter. But then, I asked for hash browns and they only have hash browns with delicious creamy gooey flavorful cheese. So, I got that, but then, feeling enourmously guilty, I traded half of it to dh for some of what he had to offer, which was beef au jus from his Italian style beef sandwich that I dipped my hot dog shaped dinner roll into. Good. Really good. I went a little crazy I guess…never go to a good restaurant hungry when you are watching your weight. Haha.

The food was all good. And at the end, dh had to order a seven layer chocolate cake which I tasted twice and have nothing whatsoever bad to say about it. Oh, yeah, dh ordered iced tea which I stole a sip from and it gets my vote for the strongest, yet not bitter unsweetened tea we have ever had. So, good job, T-bones. We’ll be back!

Stacy’s Kitchen, Wabasha, MN

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Stacy’s Kitchen is only opened until 2PM every day except Tuesdays so if you sleep til noon, you might miss out. So, Get Up, You Lazy Fool! Drag your self over there cuz the food is really good.

I and dh have been there twice already. I had the special lasagna and side salad with the bleu cheese dressing which is my secret way of telling what is to come after the salad, and dh had French toast and thick smoked apple bacon the first time which all was good enough to try a second time before we stamped our big important judgment on it. So, today, I had the special of the month Greek omelette with mushrooms, artichoke,tomato, feta cheese and black olives, and dh had his fav bacon dbl cheeseburger with kettle chips…and my personal favorite, a cold crisp garlic pickle spear. A real and rare treat these days. We also had two strong iced teas. Very nice.

Stacy serves the different flavored kettle chips in a tray, still in their individual sized bags. I brought the Maui Onion flavor one home to try…at $2.25 per bag along with their famous melt in your mouth cinnamon buns at only $2.50 each.

Stacy’s is just across the street from the U.S. Post Office and you can see the National Eagle Center from there, too.

Stacy’s is small, but laid out well so that there are quite a few table tops, very creatively decorated with very nice restrooms and, although it’s handicap accessible, I wouldn’t say it’s 100% easy due to a tight entryway and small step.
