Harbor View Cafe, Pepin WI

This is such a good restaurant, it is worth the 1.5 hour drive from the Cities, just to eat here – every dish I’ve had here has been really well made. Las time we had a delicious pork tenderloin and their haddock is famous!!

Worth a stop. Get there early to avoid crowds.

Usually swimming when you get there, unless you call ahead and they will have it ready to go.
Smoked fish to die for, and sometimes sturgeon is on the menu.

Old Bakery Beer

Old Bakery Beer in Alton, IL offers a great variety of ales, stouts, porters & beers! Their Octoberfest bier which should be available soon is one of the best beers in StL metro area during the Fall! Their fare is also very good! Their Ruben, Cuban, & Burgers are flavorful & filling. The staff are very helpful & know their products very well! I recommend ordering a couple of flights.
