Anderson House, Wabasha Style

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

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.

Anderson House

Sunday Brunch was a nice step back in time when restaurants served food like mom served at home if you were
Pennsylvania Dutch or anything remotely close. Great slices of real ham, lovely strips of bacon, maple flavored sausage, lightly cooked sliced potatoes, three bean salad, green bean with peas, quiche, scrambled eggs, baking soda biscuits, toaster French toast and waffles, mixed seasonal fruit, endless juice, tea, coffee, then desserts; pumpkin bread, lemon cake, double chocolate cake, and brownie bites. All for $11.50 each.

The staff is very friendly, and although the front door has a couple of small steps, due to having to build up a little as it is one block off the Mississippi River, and therefore not handicap accessible, there might be a back way, call first.

The restaurant is only open on Sunday from 10am to 2pm. And the hotel is opened Thursday thru Sunday. Call first.

We very much enjoyed the atmosphere of lovely pieces of furniture and lighting, plus the good food and great staff. We’ll do that again.

Historic Anderson House is opened with antique styled rooms and a lovely Dutch restaurant in Wabasha, MN.
