The Great Blue Heron is much above average in everything they offer. The environment is bright and welcoming and the interior is decorated beautifully, making the dining experience even more unique. The small town hospitality is combined with the fine dining an urban restaurant has to offer, causing guests to eat the highest quality food while being wined and dined. One of the most outstanding things about The Great Blue Heron is that they only allow the top 8% of all Black Angus beef to enter the doors of their restaurant. The restaurant is certified in serving Black Angus beef. It was interesting to learn that for a restaurant to serve certified black angus beef, they need to go through a special type of program. The Great Blue Heron is the only restaurant at the current time in the central Minnesota area to be certified in serving black angus beef. The other restaurant that was certified was the Ground Round which now is closed. So if you want to be treated right while eatting the greatest food in Central Minnesota stop at The Great Blue Heron. You won't regret it.
