Caribbean BBQ in Stillwater, MN

Just yesterday a new spot opened in Stillwater that needs to be on your list should your travels take you east. It's called Smalley's Barbeque and PIRATE BAR! I am all over the bar as they have the largest RUM selection I have seen besides my own. Available by the pour, or 'walk the plank' and select three. Topping the list at $50 is the 25-year old English Harbour from Antigua. I recommend Zaya, neat with a side of rocks. Mount Gay Extra Old and Ron Maltusalem Gran Reserva are also winners and the price points on these are perfect for exploration. Arrrrrrgh!

Food...I was told that the jerk is a recipe direct from the jerk-masters in Jamaica. I did the half chicken, It was very solid, allbeit a bit sweeter than I like. They also roast and smoke using imported pimenton wood. Kewl! Sides included a spicy slaw and perhaps the most satisfying mac and cheese I have ever had.


Not wanting or have the time to make the trek north? Betty's is opening up here in Mahtomedi/Dellwood/WBL just east of Hwy 120 and Co. Rd. E, not sure when however.

The Mexican spot in Stillwater that you refer I think is Acapulco. Another out that way that rocks is Pequeno Cocinar..."Little Kitchen" It's in Bayport right next to the lovely Bayport Cookery. Great spot for a spring drive!

Chicago style pizza in MSP?

What about Fat Lorenzos? Cedar Ave I believe in SoMpls

Bed & breakfasts/inns with great food! MN

Gourmet's Garden in Harmony is AWESOME! Or at least it was a few years ago. Gourmet breakfast is either enjoyed in the downstairs dining room or brought up to your room at your appointed time! They also have multi-course dinners and wine pairings on the weekends. Very affordable and delish. It's also not your frilly B&B which I like. Old farmhouse, but completely renovated on the inside. Great escape.

Head east a bit and stop in at Marx in Stillwater, right on Main Street.
