We're an urban diner. Real people serving real food. Smartly comfortable. The perfect place to grab a drink after work, have a great breakfast or invite friends out for lunch.
At the Longfellow Grill, we serve fresh, always made from scratch fare. We've always got something savory, slightly unexpected and addictive to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Always at affordable prices. (We're a grill, after all.)
From Fish Tacos to Sweet Potato Fries to our award-winning Turkey Burger, Banana Waffle and hashbrowns, you're bound to become one of our regulars.
Sit in the bar for a quick bite, grab a booth or lounge on our patio. Longfellow Grill is a comfortable joint... the kind of place that feels like a second home. Only with better French fries and a better view.
Two servers working together at The Nicollet Island Inn during the 1990s honed their skills at one of the Twin Cities premier restaurant/hotels. After work hours, David Burley and Stephanie Shimp dreamed up the idea for what became the Highland Grill.
With each year becoming busier than the last, David and Stephanie expanded their collection of neighborhood restaurants to become the Blue Plate Restaurant Company, which includes Highland Grill, Groveland Tap, Longfellow Grill, Edina Grill, 3 Squares, The Lowry, The Blue Barn (Minnesota State Fair), The Freehouse, Mercury Dining Room and Rail, and Shindig Event Center.
