With a notable reputation for supporting local growers and foods, each item on the menu has been carefully selected from a local source by Chef Jensen.

The social hour features Minnesota-produced cheeses and hors d'oeuvres, paired with locally-acclaimed Minnesota wines. Social hour is sponsored in part by the Morris Dental Clinic, Morris Auto Plaza, and Willie's SuperValu.
