This spot never fails to deliver. They serve awesome food for fair pricing, there no long wait even when the spot is packed.
We held our monthly TCWEP event here in November and we were constantly surprised and delighted by The Afton House. Georgenne is amazing!
We had great service and a very nice setting. The food was delicious.
Good Comedy show!
We went to the Thanksgiving brunch today and it was absolutely delicious! They were very busy but the wait staff was great! I can’t wait to go back!

Staff was very efficient, friendly, great coffee & food supply was almost endless with a good variety &Nice ambiance.With great service costs run a little higher.Photos attached.
The Thanksgiving buffet experience was excellent as always. Four kinds of meat, two dressings, salad, green beans, squash, potatoes & gravy plus dessert. Delicious and reasonably priced too. Thanks Afton House Inn I will be back. More...
Delicious Thanksgiving buffet, everything tasted homemade. (Had the memorable sight of the woman in front of me taking half a smoked salmon. ). Loved the ambience and our table waitress Peggy was a delight. Highly recommend. More...
We have taken many enjoyable brunches at the Afton House over the past 15 years but Thursday was our first Thanksgiving dinner at your fine restaurant and Inn. We had a delightful time in the Wheel Room dining on very good food in a very pleasant atmosphere. We hope to be able to return next year. More...
I just stayed at the Inn as part of A Mother's Rest. This organization pairs up with Inns to offer accommodations to caregivers of special needs children. This was my first visit to the Afton House Inn and it won't be my last. I was greeted warmly, got to stay in a beautiful room, and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate me. I have bad food allergies so they let me bring my own food and store it there so I didn't have to worry about what there was to eat. My car died the morning I checked out and the front desk staff was out there jumping it for me. Everyone was so kind. And I slept for hours. I have two kids with special needs and one is hospice level care. This was just the break I needed to relax, soak in a giant Jacuzzi bathtub, and not have to worry about anything. I am so grateful. I hope to come back again soon! More...
Lovely room, greatbed, fireplace was nice. Hot tub was great for one person, staff was tremendously helpful and pleasant. We had a wonderful anniversary dinner . Would like to come back for a cruise/hotel package. More...
Nice inn. Friendly staff
I would truly recommend "A luxury suite" at The Afton House Inn. This beautifully renovated bed and breakfast was a delight to stay in. Has every modern luxury with the old fashioned spirit. Plus 2 restaurants, a salon and more. More...
We came out for dinner! Wow the Salmon was off the charts!!!great food! AWESOME SERVICE HATS OFF
This was a birthday present from my fiancee. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone had an outstanding trip. While boarding the boat...One of the customers accidentally drop her phone in the water and without hesitation..a crew member jumped in and retrieved it for her. Everyone gave a big applaud in this incredible act of kindness and customer service!! If you are thinking about taking the cruise.. I highly recommend it!The food was good... The drinks reasonable.. and the service was excellent! Outstanding crew!! More...
Food and service. Reasonable prices, excellent food an terrific service
Was disappointed with the prime rib. It was over cooked and way too much fat. Rest of meal was fine. Had a wonderful wait person.
Great service and beautiful view
we had a lovely evening at the restaurant. It's a nice atmosphere, white tablecloths, very elegant.
We stumbled upon the restaurant at Afton House Inn and a routine date night turned into an amazing experience! We had table side Caesar Salad and my husband had the table side steak. I had the walleye and it was exceptional! The team that took care of us was excellent and we will be back! More...

Great place to stop for brunch or dinner! Very nice atmosphere and the food is great!
Going to be there next weekend went to Kid Rock this weekend going t Reba
It’s a great place to spend with a romantic atmosphere. We enjoyed it quite rooms are different from one another. Spent two weekends in a row. Close to treasure island casino.
Charming and elegant rooms, wonderful hospitality and family owned. Cannot wait to come back!
Great party room. We had a bridal shower there and it was great! A lot of compliments about the location, space and food. Would definitely recommend to others!
Terrific hospitality, sever was attentive and very friendly. Caesar Salad made right at our table. The steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection. This is the second time we have eaten there and will go back for more! It is a great dining experience! More...
Very nice place to stay. Two weekends in a row.
We enjoyed our stay at the Inn; nice room, great breakfast buffet, and had a relaxing dinner outside the Current Restaurant.
My husband and I came upon the Current, the restaurant which is associated with the attached Afton House Inn. The food was good and the staff was very friendly, happy to greet their customers.
It has been a while since we have dined at the Afton House. It was a beautiful Saturday evening. The Inn was busy as they had a wedding party in the big dining room. We were escorted to a small intimate dining room. We were warmly greeted by the front desk as well as by our server. Our server who has been at the Afton House for eight years was very knowledgeable about the menu. They have a lovely selection of wines both by the glass and bottle. We decided to indulge ourselves and ordered the tableside Caesar Salad - the presentation and resulting salad were well worth the price. I thoroughly enjoyed the short rib which was fork tender. My husband had the Chicken Saltimbocca which was also delicious. Unfortunately the generous portions (which we finished) did not leave us room for dessert. We will definitely return to try other items we were tempted by on the menu. More...

We came by boat, and it was easy to access. They have transient docking. The rooms where clean and average size. They have a deck that all have access to. It has two restaurants connected to the Inn. The wine bar is also part of the complex. They do ot have an elevator, so you need to carry your luggage upstairs. More...

Many thanks to-GeorgJean one of our awesome helper if that helps coordinate everything for our wedding. We also like to think that awesome uplifting staff that were very encouraging and helpful. We enjoyed every moment. There were some things that we wish we could've tweaked a little bit but we have learned that there is no perfect wedding out there. We had wonderful customer service and everything was prompt and on time. Staff were very laid-back and very conservative. The food was awesome and amazing. The rooms were very comfortable and accommodating for the large amount of gas that we had from out of state. We were very fortunate and blessed to of had an awesome sunny day. The boat was wonderful the staff were wonderful, our reception went wonderful as well. We find to take our honeymoon some time together, the afternoon has now became part of our family. The interesting piece about it all is it is in memory of Elmore Erickson, potential related to our family on the Erickson side.This is very meaningful to us because we do miss our loved ones that have passed away three years ago , In memory of them too , it made us feel strongly connected by coming here. Thank you again to everyone for making our wedding and awesome event full day. More...

What a great place to spend your weekend.
I love the semi private deck with private entrance. The room was super cute and jacuzzi was amazing. Next time tho, I will request some things and advise you to do the same. This was end of May, beginning of June. Weather is not too predictable and it was hotter than I anticipated. There was no air conditioning, which would have been fine because it got very cool overnight. But when we opened the window, there was no screen, and I didn’t want bugs flying in. No screen door on the deck either. And there was no fan. I was miserably hot unfortunately. I’m sure they had fans available, next time we will just ask. My experience wouldn’t stop me from coming back. This was just my kind of hotel :) More...

awesome place to stay! personal was very nice and made you feel welcome. beautiful area too! 100% recommend
We went to Afton House for my birthday. We had the curry duck and the chicken Milanese. The food was excellent, the service great and the ambience quiet and perfect to enjoy our dinner. Our server Peggy was helpful, funny and knowledgeable. We would recommend the experience and will return again. More...
Enjoyed a beautiful Father’s Day, with exceptional service by Peggy.
This is small restaurant - great food with almost great service! Linguini with mushrooms is off the charts!
Kim took me here fir my 70th birthday celebration. We made reservations and ate in the fine dinning room. Justin Glover is the Manager of the inn and when we made reservations I requested they let him know we were coming in. He met us when we got there and was gracious and outstanding. Our server was perfect she described the food perfectly. I had the Pear Gorgonzola Cheese salad, it was sensational, Kim had the chicken and rice soup he said it was really good, my entree was the duck it has a smooth spicy hint to it. Kim had the salmon he said it was done to perfection. I recommend this place with our highest ratings. I ordered the special dessert our server recommended. I got it to go and am still far to full to eat it. We give it 10 stars for service, food and Justin making us feel so Special. Thank you Justin and Staff for a Job Well Done!! More...
Nice outdoor seating with shade for nice weather days, good choice of a range of foods on the menu including gluten free if you have issues with that (I'll eat your gluten). Downtown restaurant but quiet. Great place after a hike in the nearby parks. More...
The staff are the most hospitable of anywhere I’ve ever been; I was the definition of a “weary traveler” by the time I arrived, and their kindness made all the difference! :) I couldn’t believe how above and beyond they went. They were so accommodating and personable. I will definitely be back. More...
Location was pretty but it was also spendy. There wasn't anything spectacular on the buffet menu, in my opinion.
Such a sweet and charming little inn perfectly located near the St Croix! Plenty to do and explore nearby! Plus, Georgene is just the absolute best!
We had the prime rib and it was delicious. The service was fast and our server was friendly. This was our first time there and will definitely return.
We took my Mother-In-Law out for Mother's Day. We were looking for something a bit upscale at a moderate price with great food and where we could enjoy conversation (some had hearing aids). Afton House Inn fit all perfectly! We had reservations and our table was ready when we arrived a bit early. More...
Great location for us. Nice get-away for one night, otherwise "too expensive". Room was very spacious with jacuzzi-in-room. Breakfast had many choices and we also liked the fresh-cut fruit and yogurt. More...

We’ve attended two of the monthly wine dinners here in December and January and spent the night in the Inn. The dinners are fun with very good food and wine pairings. This is a historic inn..you have to remember that. It is old but it’s still pretty nice. We prefer the rooms on the addition side to the original rooms. The swirl wine bar is a nice place to have a drink and we’ve eaten in Currants also. Good food. The wine dinners take place in the dining room. We like this place because it’s relaxing. You can eat there, drink there, sleep there. Most rooms have a jacuzzi. It’s a nice get away for a night or two. I understand the mixed reviews. Check out the website and look at the pictures. Remember it’s not new and modern. A lot of the rooms are very nice though. We’ve stayed several times and have enjoyed it as a relaxing getaway. And try a wine dinner, they are enjoyable. More...
It was our 46th anniversary and we live in Maplewood MN, and I decided to make a "non monumental anniversary, something special for just us two. It was WONDERFUL!

Quaint! Veteran supported. Thank you.

The place is very well/up kept, considering it is THE oldest hotel in Minnesota! What a lovely title and the history of the establishment is fascinating. The staff, especially Sarah (front desk/assistant manager), are extremely accommodating, attentive, and very hospitable. I felt my needs and concerns were attended to immediately. I did not have a shadow of a doubt in my mind about the received 5-star customer service here. My family and I stayed for an evening, and we loved our stay and our experience. Some travelers or visitors come for the charm, others come for the ambiance... My family came for both, and then some (with historical and/or paranormal/haunted features!). The Afton House Inn certainly exceeded and surpassed our expectations. We enjoyed the Current experience (food and service were excellent), morning breakfast experience (beautiful selections), and we can't wait to come back to try the fine dining experience. My family and I will be back!! Here to stay. More...
The fine dining experience was fantastic! The cooked table side steak Diane was delicious, as was every bite of the appetizers and other entree's.

Great place food was okay
Enjoyed their Easter Buffet! Food was excellent with plenty to eat!
We had our first visit to Current tonight. The food was really good and for a nice price. We ordered the Thursday dinner special- a large steak, mashed potatoes, asparagus, and a mushroom gravy; salmon salad, crab cakes, and the kid's chicken tenders meal. Everyone really enjoyed the food; the mushroom gravy was a great consistency and flavor, really complimented the steak and mashed potatoes. The salmon salad has a very generous portion of salmon, served with a perfectly spiced Thai peanut sauce. Even the kid's chicken tender was better than the typical chicken strip you'd expect to find on a children's menu. Our waitress, Andy, went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our dining experience. Her quick, friendly service made us feel like we were her only table/priority (though we were not). Overall, this was a very pleasant dining experience, even with young kids. This restaurant has a cozy patio, but also a lovely dining room inside (perfect for date night). We can't wait to go again!

Jess was super organized, professional, and responsive. Overall I appreciated how flexible & accommodating everyone was. Food was good. I would definitely recommend for couples looking to have a unique reception! More...

We liked the Salmon Salad and the Chicken Salads very much! A generous portion of Salmon and Chicken was impressive. "Continental Plus Breakfast" served in the Afton House dining room satisfied our breakfast needs and tasted very good. We would have liked to have chosen our own table to sit at as opposed to having had that decision made for us with a small "reserved" table card since the dining room was almost empty of people for a Tuesday morning. Sitting within inches away of strangers in an otherwise empty room felt awkward and we'd have enjoyed private conversation amongst ourselves. Thanks to Sara for her hospitality and dedication in making sure that our stay was enjoyable! More...

This was our first visit to Afton House - a Saturday night dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious and the servers were friendly/fun. We had the walleye, the prime rib, and the (authentic!) bananas foster. It's fine dining without the pretence. The historic charm at Afton House can't be beat - a hidden gem on the river. More...
My boyfriend and I went on a dinner cruise last october out of Afton. The food was great and the service was impeccable. Would highly reccomend! Perfect for date night More...
Boyfriend and I went on the Fajita & Margarita cruise last Fall. The staff was super friendly. Didn't expect the food to be the best (being on a boat) - but I was mistaken; it was fantastic! Would highly recommend. Thinking about going on another boat tour this summer. More...
Service great food mediocre.. would not return here.
We had a very nice Mother's day brunch in the fine dining area of the home. We did not experience anything but great food great service.
We had a very nice meal while viewing a double rainbow over the river.
The inn is located right of highway 95 down in Afton. They have a nice brick front and have attached a restaurant wine bar and salon. The room was nicely furnished with a 4 poster bed, and jacuzi hot tub. Attached bathroom with a regular shower as well. Service was good they were helpful in answering questions and anything else we had. Breakfast was incldued a nice poached pear, coffee/juice, omlet and bacon. Overall a good experience. More...
Very pleased with our dining experience and also our visit to Swirls before dinner. Friendly staff in both main restaurant and wine bar, plus good wine options as well as small plates.
Went with family for Easter brunch. Really good food. Definitely try the lemon cake! Lynn did a great job and made sure everyone was happy. Would love to go again some time.
Love this place. Cool atmosphere right by the St Croix River, great service. Really love the sandwiches, burgers and truffle fries. Extra points for the Bloody Marys.

The bed is very comfortable and the staff is very helpful and friendly! Also the fireplace makes it very cozy!
Went there on Valentine's Day - the last time we'd been there was probably 25 years ago. The steak Diane is still the specialty of the house - and well worth it. The dining room can be a little chilly in the winter, so bring a sweater! More...
This place is simply magical! Everything about Afton House Inn shines, from the wonderful, welcoming and kind staff, to the amazing rooms in such a beautiful and historic property. The food is also incredible! 5 stars is not enough to describe the epic service we received at the Afton House Restaurant, Swirl wine bar, and the Current. Afton house Inn is a top notch perfect gem! Thank you for creating such a memorable and extraordinary experience for us! More...

Was there last weekend with a good friend to visit my good friend Dawn the Manager. First I found it to be a very quaint place a little rustic which I love, Bartender was very friendly nice to talk to. Busy place. Had some food which was DELISH!! looking forward to going back soon. And also looking forward to booking a room in the summer with my fiance so we can enjoy staying there a night or two and having some food and walking around enjoying the view. Thank you Dawn for your great hospitality even tho you were busy and ran your butt off lol. So awesome seeing you. Can't wait to see you again so glad you found a job you love! Your smile looks good on you� Donna More...
We haven't been to the Afton House in a while, and with some of the mixed reviews on this site, I was a little nervous. I am happy to report that the Afton House is still a great dining experience in every way! The food was excellent, service was top notch, and the cozy ambience and holiday décor really helped make it a special evening for our family. For menu selections, we had the 'baseball' steak, with mashed and asparagus; braised short ribs, also with mashed and asparagus; house Caesar and seafood chowder, crab cakes and seafood pasta. All was done to perfection, with the exception of the pasta, which had a flavor my son wasn't familiar with. So they comped his whole meal. Afton House also has a very good wine selection, and the crème brulee and coffee topped everything off nicely. I highly recommend this fine dining establishment for any special occasion. Thank you Afton House! More...
We really enjoyed our room and the staff was friendly. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Bedding was comfortable and room were warm/cool enough. The restaurant had plenty of choices as well as GF. More...
What a cozy place to have dinner and drinks during the wintertime. The Fondue is wonderful! Specials during the week. Favorite place to stop when we are in the area.
This was our first stop of our motorcycle ride. There was road contruction on the main road in front, that made things difficult and dusty. After we checked in 7 rooms we all went down to the bar, service was great and the bar tender was most pleasant. Then we made our way to one of the restaurants "Swirl" a wine and tappas room. Very nice great service and fantastic food! Our rooms were quaint and dated. The only thin I would change would be the shower. Terrible water preasure and the faucet did not work. Nice spot, we would go back! More...

The room was clean. Everyone was helpful. The breakfast was superb. My only complaint is that it was a little noisy at night due to the bar attached to the Hotel.
Staff was super and the room was cozy and warm. The Jacuzzi was big, but spit out something that looked like dirt. That could be due to when it was used last. Breakfast was great and we loved the Swirl! A bit over priced, but overall a great experience. More...
Been coming here many years for Valentines dinner with my wife. ALWAYS a great atmosphere, dinner and service!! Can't talk high enough about this restaurant! ! I ask for a dozen roses, chocolates and a particular bottle of wine table side, and again a PERFECT show! Bravo Dan and crew! Food is 5 +1 Star. A must if ever in the area. More...
We had a great experience here. A great atmosphere, amazing food and a great hotel. Old world charm with new world amenities. It was a great bang for the buck. Great location, great service and great hosts. More...
It was a short visit! Very friendly and welcoming staff.
Living in Florida for 25 years I needed a snowy weekend. My husband and I stayed here, having never been to MN before. I chose Room 7 after reading reviews and what was available for our long weekend. This room has a comfy king bed, very spacious double hot tub, semi-private walk-out deck (I won't call it a balcony because there were steps leading down to the back yard). It is also one of the few (2?) rooms with a mini fridge).||||This is a 2nd floor room in the new section of the complex. One side of the room looks down onto St. Croix Trail (the main street in Afton) and the back has a view of the large back grounds and the marina. The boats were all out of the water and covered with tarps when we were there in late Feb. but it was still a nice view. I loved all the dormant trees around the area, it looked very wintery. :)||||The staff is wonderful, very friendly and casual. We had a huge problem connecting to the internet while here, and they worked closely with us trying to solve the problem, even placing a service call to the local cable company.||||The on-site restaurant, Current, was great and we ate there all 3 nights. The wine bar, Swirl, was very nice and has a double sided fireplace and cozy couches with nice views of the front street and people walking by. The dining room is where they serve breakfast and we enjoyed a 2-course served breakfast the first day (Friday) of poached pears and breakfast burritos, and a full buffet both weekend mornings.||||I would absolutely stay here again if ever in the area. More...
My husband and I stayed at the Afton Inn to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. An added benefit to our stay in Afton was the Strawberry Festival which was a nice event where we sat in the park and listened to a nice guitar duo, called Prairie Anthem. We did have a delightful weekend. We took the Sunday Champagne Brunch Cruise which was excellent and will recommend it to our family and friends. Our room was very nice, clean and well kept. I really enjoyed access to the outdoor patio as it overlooked the river. It was nice to spend some quiet time at night and in the early am enjoying the MInnesota summer weather. The Monday breakfast was unique with poached pears, and Mexican inspired eggs. I liked the wait staff left us alone to enjoy our breakfast and not feel rushed or interrupted; our food was brought out warm and tasty and we could enjoy at our own pace. ||||Thanks to the Afton staff for the good service. We truly enjoyed our stay at the Inn, and in the town of Afton. More...
The room we had, #9, was magnificent. The bed was nice and large and very comfortable. The Jacuzzi melted your body into bliss. ||||I would highly recommend the Seafood Chowder in one of the restaurants. The chef uses his own recipe and it was probably the best seafood chowder I have had in years.||||All in all, I would recommend the Afton House to any and all. More...
An historic inn on the St. Croix river. Nice place to just hang out and relax. The restaurants on site make it possible to not have to leave if you don't want to. Nice wine bar with great food where you can sit in or out, same with the bar & grill type restaurant which also had really good food. There is a more upscale restaurant also where we didn't eat but the prices were reasonable and I'd like to try it next time. Our room was large with a king bed, large whirlpool and small outdoor deck. We drove to see a couple waterfalls and to Stillwater. Not too much to do right near the inn. We would return...nice people and delicious breakfasts included with your stay. More...
This is a really old place that has been well maintained! We live just 15 minutes away across the river in Hudson, WI, but when we are here we feel as if we are in another world. We usually stay in the older rooms that face the river, and this time we had room 30. It was very clean, had a king bed, jacuzzi, and its own deck. We enjoyed our rooms very much here. The girl checking us in was super nice, and she was the one who served us our little breakfast in the morning. I would give this place a five, but I just can't due to the fact that the breakfast isn't very good, and they don't have any decaf coffee. We were a bit disappointed since my husband does not drink regular. It's a little weird that every time we come it feels like a ghost town, and maybe March and April are the off-season. We don't mind it empty though- it's rather peaceful to us. We will continue our yearly tradition, and think it's worth it to others to check this wonderfully old place out! More...
My husband and I, have visited the Afton House Inn on two occasions now. We stayed in room #2 both times. The room was clean and very comfortable. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic evening.||||The first time we stayed, our whirlpool sounded a bit off; it was making some odd noises. Clearly the Afton House must stay on top of their maintenance; when we came back two months later, the whirlpool sounded just fine.||||The Inn has a great bar and grill; the food was excellent. They also have a quaint little wine bar. If you want to take advantage of the wine bar, it is best to stay on any night but Sunday, since it is not open Sunday nights. When we visited the first time, it was girls night out. The wine bar had a tasting going on and the Lumberyard, a bar just down the street, was doing Coach purse bingo (They do this every third Thursday of the month). We had a blast playing bingo and drinking wine.||||The second time we visited, we stayed on a Sunday. You will be hard-pressed to find anything open past 8 or 9pm. We ended up driving into Hudson at 9pm to get a pizza because everything around us was closed, including the Lumberyard.||||The Afton House Inn has a lot of great things going for it, the breakfast, however, is not one of those things. I may be totally wrong, but I thought poached pears were supposed to be cooked. They serve theirs ice cold with oats and yogurt, and the pear is hard still. To me they seem like they have not been poached.. They also serve some sort of egg dish. The first time it was an omelet, which was more egg than anything else, and the second time it was a frittata, which did taste better than the omelet. The food was okay, but not really what makes me want to come back. I have had much better breakfast at other inns, so this aspect was a bit disappointing.||||I would definitely go back to the Afton Inn, but with the understanding that I am not going because of a great breakfast. I see it more as a fun night out with my husband, where we can have some drinks and then come back and relax in the whirlpool, or by the fireplace. More...
It was an anniversary night for my bf and I. We stayed in room #1. Beautiful room with Jacuzzi. The room was big as well as bathroom and very clean. We had dinner and desert in their dining room as well and was very good. Plated breakfast in the morning was awesome. We will be back this summer when all the boats are out on the river. More...
Absolutely amazing place! I fell in love with it! They treated us like family! I only wish that I had it for 2 nights instead of just one. I will be back this summer for a whole weekend! More...
We were guests of the wedding party and so enjoyed the Afton House Inn. We were a small group of thirty five or so and we fit perfectly. The ambiance for the wedding potion was wonderful as was the reception. We pretty much had the whole first floor. Plenty of room for the dance floor, dinner and dessert table . And the bar had everything including the dancing bartender and servers. Not only did they take excellent care of each and everyone of us, but also treated us like long lost friends. They really made the night. |The food was excellent as well. We had a buffet style dinner and can often be dry but not here. Plenty to eat and perfectly done. The desserts were Devine, especially the cupcakes and chocolate eclairs. Mmm!|We had a truly wonderful time and were sad the evening had to come to an end. More...
Cute old bed and breakfast. Not super fancy but enjoyable. Not bad breakfast.
Great place to have a wonderful dinner, you can choose for a very formal dinner, a casual dinner or not so formal due to the fact that they have 3 restaurants. The formal one has great big window and you can see the nature around the area. The server was very professional and very friendly and very helpful. The food is great, they use local and organic. The prices are okay for the plate size and the flavors. The Amish Chicken is superb, the bread pudding one of the best that I tried. More...
We had the Thanksgiving Buffet. The buffet line was very nicely setup and lots of options. Fresh Vegetables, stuffing, Harvest Squash Salad and Smoked Salmon were especially good. Ham was very moist but the turkey we had was dry.Had the pumpkin pie for dessert and was not happy with it. Only ate a few bites and left the rest. By then we were full anyway so did not get a different dessert. More...
Very nice early dinner on a Saturday at the Afton House Inn. Haven’t been here for years. Good food. I had the Goldie’s Walleye, which was perfect; my companion had a very nice filet mignon. Both entrees done very well. My only complaint, which is minor, is the price was a bit steep for the value. The entrees came only with a side of gluey rice and “market vegetables”, which was a few sprigs of asparagus. Service was outstanding, and this is one of the few places left offering tableside Caesar salad prep as well as Cherries Jubilee and Bananas Foster. We both had other (fantastic) desserts, but very much enjoyed watching the show as other diners ordered these items. Recommend! More...
The Inn is so cute. The staff very attentive, clean and neat.

Staff were great. Hotel is a nice historic building in good condition and in a nice location
We were comfortable, the only downside was the bed squeaked terribly. Could use a little updating of the decor, but all in all our stay was very pleasant. The staff was friendly.
Food is fantastic! Try what I call the tableside trifecta: Cesar salad, steak Diane, and dessert (bananas Foster), all prepared tableside, with fire on the latter two.
very nice stay
My husband and I have been coming here on and off since our 1st date (a long time ago). We live across the metro so we can't come as often as in the past so we miss it. Food: excellent. Romantic: yes!
The Steak Diane was wonderful. The service was great. I highly recommend the Afton House Inn
I'm not a big fan of their website, it's clunky and not intuitive to use although they tell me that it is getting an update soon so that is good to hear.
I must comment that their customer service is admirable. I had a scheduling conflict the day before our cruise the day before so I called in and they rescheduled it no problem. There was a small fee but it was last minute and understandable. They were very nice to talk to at any interaction.
The cruise itself was good too. Food was good, drinks were pretty cheap and the whole thing lasted about 2 hours. It is definitely an older crowd but nothing wrong with that either. Might bring a date here. More...
Makes for a nice outing on the water. Food is mediocre and there often is not enough seats for you to be able to sit above and below.
It was a very nice Easter Brunch, large variety of entrees and side dishes. The roast beef and cons salmon were exceptionally well done, melt in your mouth beef. A little confusion at the start as to which buffet we were suppose to use, overall a nice dink g experience in a quiet enough atmosphere to have good conversation. More...
Came with my mom for Easter brunch buffet and loved it. Out waitress was great and the food was very good!
Cute inn with fun rooms and many eating/drinking options. The main, fancy restaurant was a little slow and disorganized. The Current restaurant was great. The food was good and Todd's sangria needs to be on the menu! More...
The ambiance, menu, and prices say formal, but the service and clientele disagree. You won't feel the least bit out of place here in jeans, and you shouldn't go into it expecting a truly "formal" dining experience from a service standpoint. That said, if you feel like dressing up, go for it. Don't be surprised if you're the only ones though!Don't get me wrong. Formal dining is generally too stuffy for me anyways. This was a very nice balance. We had a good time. The food was good as well, with some unique options too. An error on the staffs part was remedied quickly and compensated with a free dessert without our asking for it, so that was nice too. More...
We stayed at The Afton House Inn & dined at the attached restaurant. The food is moderately priced and pretty good just not exceptional. I ordered an old fashioned and it was made wrong. Everyone was very friendly and our server was wonderful. More...
Bring back steak Diane! Love the prime rib though
Our dinner was delicious and we had an awesome server. We had an entire private dining room to ourselves. So awesome!
The appetizers were great.The staff were very good too.Try the chicken drop appetizer was the best I've ever had.
The Afton House is a stand out dining spot on the St. Croix River. The restaurant specializes in table side food preparation from Caesar salad to Steak Diane to Bananas Foster. It is a good show paired with good, tasty food. More...
From the food to the service along the atmosphere it was outstanding. Highly recommend them for a special night out.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note and let someone know what an enjoyable time we had on your Oktoberfest Cruise from Hudson on Saturday, October 22nd.
The food was excellent and the German band was a real crowd pleaser. I will go again next year! More...
The food was excellent and the ambiance was great. If you are prepared for slower than normal service you will enjoy your evening.
I attended the Sunday champagne brunch cruise this fall. As you board the boat they hand you a very small sampler glass of champagne. You can purchase larger glasses of champagne at the bar. The food quality was very good, worth $33 per person. I especially liked the pecan crusted tilapia and roasted potatoes. The staff were very friendly and the boat appeared to be in good shape. More...
Always exceptional customer service received from the staff. I had ordered the Shrimp Scampi and, they were low on some ingredients had to swap a few things out of the meal. I am usually here for the special occasions when they have their Cold Fresh Water Lobster in. There was no banana foster! That's usually worth the drive up! :( The Steak Diane is the way to go. We will be back again. More...
Wow. What a treat! The chef belongs at a big city up scale restaurant. Beautiful innovative dishes. And the apple dumpling was pure light flakey pastry with a whole cored apple. I had avacado cream cheese wantons with a raspberry glaze. Perfect. Soup of the day was excellent. More...
We've been to Afton numerous times and finally decided to try the Afton Inn, knowing it is a higher priced fine dining. The value was good. We were surprised to find they offer table-side Caesars and Steak Diane, nicely-paced food service, and a quiet atmosphere (desperately lacking these days). More...
First time staying at the inn and loved the idea of just being able to eat outside right on the property. We sat at the little fire table and enjoyed a glass of wine while we waited for our food. The sea bass was incredible and we had great service. We will be back. More...
Our waiter was Todd this afternoon. He couldn't have been more attentive. I asked for some recommendations. He was spot on with the salmon salad! It was beautiful and delicious. Thanks, Todd! More...
Very nice and wiatress, although according to hostesswe should receive a free glass of wine since it was our1st anniversary. She made a note on computer, but nothing happened. My filet was raw. I ordered it medium rare. Had to send it back twice. Third it was part medium and part well done. It was also tough and grissley. Vegetables were not kept warm and were served cold. Bread basket and chowder were great. Pasta too salty. Charming room and people, but food poor and over priced. More...
We were entertaining a couple of long time friends from out of town. They're vegetarians. We thought it would be good to show them the Saint Croix River and grab a bite to eat at the same time. The Afton House Inn fits the bill. It offered several excellent vegetarian options. I had the short ribs, and my husband had the pasta Bolognese. Our guests had mushroom pasta, polenta cakes, and a nice cheese plate. They thoroughly enjoyed their food. My husband and I were surprised at the quality of the food, the nice plating, and the value. Our server was excellent. Her timing was perfect, and she allowed us to converse and do some catching up. It was altogether a very enjoyable experience. More...
We come here a few times each year. Food is always excellent, and the service is always fantastic.
Located about 25 minutes east of downtown St. Paul, the Afton House Inn is well worth the drive! Classic American fare is served in a dining room overlooking the St. Croix River. Service is friendly, the food is excellent, and the table side preparations - Caesar Salad, Steak Diane, and Cherries Jubilee - make this a great place for a special occasion. More...
The service and food was very good. The staff was very friendly.
On August 17, we enjoyed a company picnic cruise with our company's 47 employees. Captain Gordie and First Mate, Lynn were incredible hosts throughout the evening. The Afton Princess brought us aboard right on time and had us back at our requested time for departing for home.Aside from the great service and wonderful food, the trip on the St. Croix held some incredible views. We selected Afton Cruise Lines after a review of several other Twin Cities area dinner cruises...and Afton Cruise Lines had the most agreeable rates and a generous range of options to choose from.From our first conversations with Melissa Winther to arrange the cruise, to our last minutes heading to the dock and departing for home, we had an enjoyable, first rate experience. We will use Afton Cruise Lines again, and would highly recommend them to others consider this type of event. More...
Great food, outstanding wine list, quiet ambience and impeccable service.
The lake trout was fantastic, we always enjoy the quiet elegance
It was awesome. The food was amazing and so was the service. I would definitely suggest the Afton house for anyone wanting a wonderful meal and it is a great place to celebrate a special occasion.
I had the grilled thai chicken flatbread and it was awesome! not too spicy since I don't do spicy well. The waitress was great to talk to and always available as we were the only ones in the place as we went at 9:00 on a Thursday night. My husband had the bacon and cheddar burger and loved it as well. I will definitely go back for the food. I ordered the flip flop and it had tomato juice in it. While I like tomato juice, it did not work in this drink. I'll stick to a local craft beer next time. More...
Once again, our stay at the Afton House Inn exceeded our expectations. I believe we had a living social coupon for an overnight stay and breakfast. Room #8 came with a jacuzzi, a chase lounge, and fireplace. It is a spacious room and will ask for it always. There was lots of room to maneuver around the room. The breakfast the next morning was two courses. FABULOUS! absolutely loved our breakfast! The first course was a pear and honey something and I had to hold myself back from licking the plate! The second course would've seemed your typical breakfast with bacon, eggs, toast, but the taste was out of this world. I'm looking forward to going back again! Was a great way to spend a night out with my husband. More...
We celebrated a family birthday. The dining room is casual with interesting local decoration. The menu was varied and the food good with selections that accommodated some dietary restrictions. Service was attentive. A good place for a quiet talk. More...
I would defiantly recommend this place to all. The service was outstanding waiters and waitresses were always there when we needed them and they had an amazing attitude! The scenery was just right!
Nice offerings. Price was typical for a holiday brunch. Food was plentiful and refilled regularly. Wait and lines moved quickly. Decor could be 'cleansed' - classic spot so keep it clean and classy! Will visit again and will save room for a visit down the block to Selmas! More...
The short ribs meal was delicious, very lean. Lovely location
Lovely restaurant. Wonderful service. Greatly enjoyed the table side Caesar and the excellently prepared salmon.
We had blocked off 2/28 overnight at the Afton House Inn to work into our plans for a Leap Day vacation and our meal at the Afton House restaurant was very tasty. Since it was a Sunday night in February, the main dining room was closed in favor of a smaller dining area and it was still pleasant. Ordered the table side Caesar salad and Steak Diane and we were quite pleased with the flavors of the fresh-made salad and the presentation of the dinners. We also had the mustard sauce salmon which had really excellent flavor and was well-prepared. We topped the meal off by splitting a Tiramisu and that was a fantastic finale. Overall, a very positive experience here. More...
We celebrated my Dad's 73rd birthday. It was wonderful.
Three of us went to the Afton House on Feb 14. We had the spicy chicken appetizer, two different beef entrees and the walleye entree. We had creme brûlée for desert. All the food was excellent. We intend to return for dinner on another date. More...
We went there for a Valentine's Day dinner. Service was amazing, they really go out of their way for you. Food was great and served promptly. I can't wait to go back!
The quality of the food was good. However, there was not the tableside dining options available due to the holiday (valentine's weekend). Given that even when we left there were still quite a few empty tables available I think they could have done the tableside options. This was our first time trying here and given the menu listed, we thought having caesar salad and steak prepared tableside would be a neat change. When we reserved the table there was no indication that the regular menu would not be available, or special features might be added.It wasn't until we were seated that we realized that the menu was different from standard. Lobster, as well as surf and turf, was added for the holiday. But the tableside options were prepped in the kitchen and brought to the table. I understand things can be busy for any holiday, but let us know ahead of time that changes are happening. We overheard other tables asking for the tableside options only to be told that the food was available but would not be prepared tableside. (Some of these were from older couples that were looking for what they had in the past and were unaware that things were different tonight.) There was still 1/4 to 1/3 of the tables empty so they could have just had fewer tables with the tableside options.Overall what we got was good food, but we were hoping for that special something different. Use your strengths that make you different from the rest (tableside dining done well), even if at the end of the day you have to turn someone away. That is better than disappointing those that do come for those differences. More...
My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Afton House Inn for the first time last Saturday night. We arrived early and enjoyed some wine and an appetizer in their wine bar called Swirl. The service was great and the wine bar was decorated for Valentine's Day and felt very warm and cozy. The excellent food and service continued when we went to the dining room for dinner.
