About the Brookside Bar & Grill

Brookside Bar & Grill has been an integral part of the Marine on St. Croix community for close to 80 years! Built as a creamery, the building has a brook that actually runs through the basement which was originally used in the production process. We believe the milk cans were set in the brook to keep the milk cold. The brook runs through the bar and under the street where it then cascades into the St. Croix River.

Brookside is situated directly across the street from the Historic Mill Site, which commemorates the location of the first lumber mill in the state of Minnesota.

Converted to a bar and restaurant in the mid-1930s, Brookside has provided residents and travelers with a place to gather and enjoy good food and great company in a truly charming environment for generations.

The Future of the Brookside

In the spring of 2010, the current owners purchased the property and provided the building and grounds with a much-needed renovation. The kitchen, dining area, rest rooms, grounds, exterior and back-of-the house operations were completely redone, while maintaining the property’s historic charm.

A new menu was also incorporated into the operations with what we believe to be an excellent selection of very high quality offerings. The next time you choose to dine out we hope you choose to visit us at the Brookside Bar & Grill for our comfortable atmosphere and great food.
