The service was equally as good as the delicious Charred Corn Salad with Chicken I had for lunch.

We are regular customers and have been coming since Coalition opened. We dined last night and we're not disappointed. There are not many places that have maintained such exceptional food and service for that many years. I want to call out Sally in particular. She creates such a welcoming environment, making customers feel like loved ... read more

Walleye eggs Benedict and the Prosciutto breakfast sandwich are delicious. They make a yummy spicy Bloody Mary. We also recommend trying the Mimosa flight.

Great food, great service. Often full with every seat taken. It’s very loud in there when that is the case.

Love the atmosphere in this place as the exposed red brickwork reminds me of home. Good food & drinks, friendly staff, all set in a historic town. Been many times and will continue to do so.

Amazing experience, service, ambience, bartender, manager. I will be back again, to steal all of their employees! Just. Amazing. Hours later, I'm still not sure what was, service or drinks. Thank you, Shannon!

We had Brunch here after Easter. The staff was tremendous. Kind and helpful from start to finish. I went with the Enchillads and Eggs with a side of breakfast potatoes. Absolutely delicious. The side was big enough for three! The French toast was a hit with my kids. The walleye tacos were a big hit for a few members of our group!

Great food and great service. Good thing we made a reservation because this place is very popular, especially on a Friday evening. The ribeye steak was excellent and my wife's chicken sandwich was delicious. The waitress was very friendly and attentive despite the crowd. Overall a very good dining experience. Will definitely go again ... read more

Best crispy chicken sandwich I've ever had! The breading was crispy but thin and the chicken was so moist and delicious. Everyone I was with loved what they ordered. Service was great and our server was very friendly and helpful.

My girlfriends and I visited Coalition Restaurant for the first time. We only ordered drinks at the bar. Initially the restaurant appeared very fancy and I was unsure if we would "fit in".

Calm and Quaint
A perfect spot for a date or business meeting. The food is tasty and never boring, with their wine list you can't go wrong no matter the time of day you visit.

Appetizers and drinks were great. Entrees had something left to be desired. Great ambience.
Scott Darling via - Jan 30, 2022
Besides having the best food around, the people of Coalition treat me like family. Good food is really important to me, but when you are made to feel welcome and greeted by people that have become friends it really makes it a different experience. Dinner is always great, but check out the social hour or come in for brunch and try t ... read more

Fabulous food in a sweet space
Lunch at coalition was delicious! The shrimp bruschetta is amazing- huge, juicy shrimp in sumptuous pesto. And the walleye tacos are fabulous. We are returning next week - it is that awesome!

I was introduced to this place fir lunch by my friend that lives in the Twin Cities. It was the first time for the both of us. Because we’ve never been there before, we didn’t want to just try two dishes. Instead, we ordered 6 appetizers, some of which our server had recommended. They were all amazing but the cauliflower is a MUST tr ... read more

I loved the look, feel and vibe of Coalition, and I definitely want to go back again next time I'm in Minnesota. The margarita was really good and very strong, although I do wish I'd ordered a more unique cocktail in hindsight. The steak sandwich was good, but not my favorite. I wished the steak was cut up prior to going on the sandw ... read more

Very Nice Meal!!
Friends recommended Coalition during a recent visit this the Wayzata area. The downtown Excelsior area is charming, lots of restaurants and nightlife. Coalition has a very nice ambiance as well as both indoor and outdoor seating. Our party dined inside at a comfortable four top dinette. One small complaint is that the noise level is ... read more
