Sad Day for Skyline Restaurant, Lake City, MN

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

I learned today that Skyline Restaurant, where the of Skyline Hotel Condos are on Hwy 61 in Lake City, MN has gone down and out.
It was one of my favorite places, located at the end of Lake Pepin, right there next to the water, where the Pearl boat harbors. The food, though sometimes missed a beat, was more often good and plentiful with very fair pricing.
A little word of advice on the side; never order a steak unless you are in a place that calls themselves a Steak House. It’s a special sort of situation that a restaurant that offers some of everything usually cannot cope with.
Anyway, I am so sad about them going down. A couple of new restaurants came to town and that may have pushed the sack over the bridge. I have been to one, called The Rail House, and it’s good, it has some original recipies, like pizza, and such, but it’s not that much different in its offerings, i think that its just that people like something new. We may get “5 senses blind” to a restaurant, it’s food, it’s ambiance and even it’s staff after a few dozen trips. So we go where everyone else is going to hit the latest trend in dining out.
Good luck to the new owners, if there will be new owners and if so, I hope to write about you, too.

What’s New in Wabasha

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

It’s been such a busy week here, like everyone is realizing hey, it might be the last of summer over the next few weeks. Here in Wabasha, we have had it all. The best of the summer festivities, music, and food!

Our farmer’s market grows each week as more food becomes available from mother earth and I have to say, the last batch of radishes and zuchinni we got was superb. Sweet and delicious.
We got duck eggs and they were great. I made a fast omelet with tomatoes, zuchinni, oregano and vinegar, a dash to lighten up the eggs for me. It was great. I’ll have another tomorrow! The farmer’s market also has three ways to pay. Credit card, ESB card, and another one you have to ask Sara about. Liam played guitar and sang for us and we were happy to give him a gift of money for his efforts.
We have had a few good meals at the Bluff View. Last night, a half a dozen scallops with pineapple salsa on a bed of baby greens was superb at 11 bucks, and the scallop were decent size. My husband had a steak which I thought looked delicious and he said it was indeed. We have also had a very nice Sunday buffet there a couple of times and relished in the fact that everything was so much better than the usual fare. Also about 11 dollars.
