Looking for a place on the water to treat your mother to a Mother’s Day meal? Explore Minnesota Tourism writer James Norton featured waterfront dining establishments in Minnesota and included the Boat House, Winona’s only riverfront restaurant. The Boat House opened in 2013 and was “formed out of a love for the Mississippi River, food, drink and everything that goes with that…and serves traditional river inspired seafood dishes, steak, craft cocktails, and beers on our seasonally rotating menu. ” It overlooks the Mississippi River and the natural light and river- inspired decor and artwork create an ambience that is warm and hospitable. A daily menu is written on chalkboard that features their specials. Their outdoor patio is also an option for dining on an especially lovely day.
It is currently open Thursday – Saturday from 4:00 pm. – 8:00 p.m. (so you will have to take your mother out a day before her special day!)
