Sad Day for Skyline Restaurant, Lake City, MN

Thu, 08/28/2014 - 12:06pm

I learned today that Skyline Restaurant, where the of Skyline Hotel Condos are on Hwy 61 in Lake City, MN has gone down and out.
It was one of my favorite places, located at the end of Lake Pepin, right there next to the water, where the Pearl boat harbors. The food, though sometimes missed a beat, was more often good and plentiful with very fair pricing.
A little word of advice on the side; never order a steak unless you are in a place that calls themselves a Steak House. It’s a special sort of situation that a restaurant that offers some of everything usually cannot cope with.
Anyway, I am so sad about them going down. A couple of new restaurants came to town and that may have pushed the sack over the bridge. I have been to one, called The Rail House, and it’s good, it has some original recipies, like pizza, and such, but it’s not that much different in its offerings, i think that its just that people like something new. We may get “5 senses blind” to a restaurant, it’s food, it’s ambiance and even it’s staff after a few dozen trips. So we go where everyone else is going to hit the latest trend in dining out.
Good luck to the new owners, if there will be new owners and if so, I hope to write about you, too.
