Enjoy These Restaurants in Minneapolis With Great Views

Did you know that Minneapolis is home to an array of restaurants that offer delicious meals as well as picturesque views? Restaurants in Minneapolis with a view not to be missed include:


Found on the 27th floor of the Forshay Tower, Prohibition offers incredible 360-degree views of downtown. It features Art Deco architecture and was originally Wilbur Foshay’s private full-floor retreat. The tower was designed in the image of the Washington Monument, complete with Italian marble, African mahogany woodwork, and doorknobs plated in gold.

In addition, the menu includes chicken wings, grilled cheese sandwiches, and cheddar bacon burgers, and all pair well with cocktails such as the Duke of Earl.

Aster Cafe

Nestled on the prettiest street in the city, the Aster Cafe overlooks the Mississippi River. This candlelit restaurant offers friendly service and features a European patio, fabulous brunches, and live music. City Pages called the cafe the “best place to go on a first date”, and Executive Chef Drew Ledo creates meals that are both fresh and innovative.

Not to mention, choices include roasted jerk chicken, chilled sweet corn soup, and Korean barbecue banh mi sandwiches. The menu also contains eleven beers on tap such as Castle Danger Cream and Rush River Unforgiven.

Union Rooftop

Union Rooftop is home to the only year-round glass-enclosed rooftop patio in Minnesota. It features picturesque views of the downtown Minneapolis skyline, and it’s where visitors enjoy made-from-scratch American cuisine and refreshing crafted cocktails. The menu includes Atlantic salmon, half roasted chicken and dumplings, and smoked short ribs. Those looking for something sweet don’t want to miss a slice of the chocolate turtle cake or sweet potato cheesecake.
