Ambience was incredible. We order steaks which was served in a maple juice with vegetables. Look more like a pot roast rather than grilled steaks. Steaks were good not won’t order again.

Great place for dinner. The view of the dam is an unusual backdrop for a fancy dinner. I had the steak and scallops and they were awesome. Very friendly staff that was happy to help with our special requests

Very small portions and bland food. My wife had one of their brunch skillets and she had to coat it with salt and sauce to taste anything. I had the walleye and recieved 1 piece of walleye, 2 small red potatoes, and 8 green beans. The potatoes and beans had no seasoning, but the fish was alright. We had ordered a cheese curd that was greasy and undercooked, not worth the 12 bucks we paid for those dozen or so curds. The dessert selection looked store-bought, we had the lemon cake and it was alright. Overall, we paid 70 dollars for lunch and a few drinks, and went and ate at perkins afterwards. The service was par, though the atmosphere was comfortable and impressive. We won't be returning to Fratellos, not even for the overpriced drinks. Steer clear of this date disaster, you'll pay way to much and wonder if you ate anything at all.

We arrived early and allowed time for a drink and appetizer both of which were delicious! Our waiter was fantastic, very kind and always greeted us with a smile every time he came to our table. Our meals were very good and my husband and I both commented on how flavorful everything was! We would definitely Eat here again

I would try it again. We ordered a $130 bottle of wine and our entire meal was brought out within 5 minutes of ordering. We didn’t have time to enjoy salads or a glass of wine before dinner was served. The sirloin was Corey and chewy, the mashed potatoes were cold. The asparagus was very good and the potatoes had a good flavor, just cold. Didn’t understand that since the meals were served so quickly. Scallops were delicious. Server was polite.

Would like to try again, everyone has a bad night. Hoping next time is better.

The food was good, but not great. Steaks were prepared a bit overdone. (ordered medium and received medium well). the steaks were also not as tender as I would have expected.
my wife was very cold the entire evening - granted they sat us by the huge window and it was 15 degrees out, but she wore her coat and scarf the entire time and staff didn't notice.
Wait staff was very pleasant and did a great job getting orders taken and keeping beverages filled, etc.

NYE dinner. Food was very good. Very few complaints. The only things I would change are - the tables were oddly low, especially compared to the chair height, it was uncomfortable, especially for two tall people. Also, the plate sizes were small for what was being served. My boyfriend ordered filet and it was on a rectangular plate that didn’t provide much space for cutting a steak and not knocking something into the table.
Neither of these would prevent us from eating there in the future, we will just ask to eat at the bar.

We wanted to sit by the windows to look out at the river but it was freezing and there was cold air blowing right on us. The ambiance is very nice and is a great place to bring guests. Normally, we enjoy our food but this last visit the food was not good. There were 5 of us and I don't think anyone would have ordered food there again due to the price and food not being very tasty.

My first experience with booking an RSVP through Open Table. Was most pleased with the ease of it all. Have been to Fratellos many times in all seasons. In reading the reviews from October, was a bit surprised at some of the negatives. Fortunately, I scrolled down and they were more favorable back in September and further back. Our food was delicious: three of the four dining chose different menu items and we all loved our meals, presentation was appealing and loved our view of the rushing white water through the dam. Our waitress, Lexi, was most helpful and courteous, and checked back on us. Great atmosphere, well kept, and clean lavatories. We'll be back:)
