In no particular order, my wife and I have found ourselves frequently going back to these great places to eat after living in this area for a year now...

Anejos Mexican Restaurant
We love authentic mexican food, and Anejos has just that. They've got a great decor inside and out, and we especially enjoy the patio at their Sartell location. We order take-out more often than not, and the food is always fast and ready.

Coyote Moon Grille (at Territory Golf Course)
We just discovered Coyote Moon a month ago, and have been there a couple times since. For us personally, the deck seating with the amazing views of the beautiful golf course is priceless. It makes for a great date night out.

Blue Line Bar & Grill in Sartell
We've been to Blue Line the most, likely because it's close to our home in Sartell. It's a great bar, as well as a fun place for the family. Great for watching local sports, and of course great food whether we take it to go or eat there. Rick and his staff are excellent and keep you happy.

Urban Moose Brewing Company
They just opened a month ago and even if you're not a big 'beer' drinker, they have a full bar. The food? Very upscale looking and tasting. You'll likely find something on their menu you've never seen before. The upstairs rooftop dining is awesome, as long as you can wait for a seat to open up as they tend to get very busy.

Anton's in Waite Park
If you're looking for a very interesting surrounding with a big story behind it, Anton's is a great place to dine. That location used to be a speakeasy back in the prohibition days, and they've kept that feel to their decor. They are known for their steaks and seafood, as well as a great selection of wines. We've gone there for our last 2 anniversary dinners. Oh, I can't forget their famous popovers...I'll take 2 please!
