Located in the bluffs of Southeastern Minnesota, Root River 102 offers the best wine, beer and whiskey list in the region.
Rather than large entrees, come and enjoy a couple shareable plates for the table. We focus on local providers and great taste while making these shareables substantial enough that you won't leave hungry.
We pride ourselves on making some of the best craft cocktails in the Driftless Region. From our Cranberry Old Fashioned to our 102 Manhattan, we have a clear focus on bourbon, but with enough variety to satisfy everyone. We utilize Four Roses as our house bourbon and Tattersall (a Minneapolis/River Falls distillery) spirits for all our cocktails. And, for the Norwegian in us all, we have a variety of aquavit cocktails as well upon request.
With over 60 wines available by the bottle and 20 available by the glass, we have something for everyone. We feature wines from several local wineries, but the vast majority is the best of the best from around the world.
Four Roses is our house bourbon, but we also have over 50 other whiskey options from which to choose. With 10 options originating from the Midwest, we have great products with local representation, including our proprietary bourbon from Cedar Ridge Distillery in Swisher, IA.
We try to source as many products as possible from the local region - local produce, local meats, local cheeses. Additionally, we feature 11 local craft beers on tap, 3 local wineries and Minnesota produced spirits when possible.
We serve you at your table with fresh, delicious food and exquisite cocktails! We have over 60 wines by the bottle, 20+ available by the glass,12 rotating local craft beer taps and over 50 different whiskeys from which to choose. Please stop in and experience the upscale, casual atmosphere, enjoy a beverage with some wonderful food and take in the beautiful Lanesboro views from our spacious outdoor decks and patio. We look forward to your visit!
Lanesboro is such a great place to escape from the everyday pressures of the world and unwind. We want to pay homage to the area and create the exact same feel in our wine bar and restaurant, Root River 102 (located at 102 Coffee St W).
Our goal is to feature as many products from local farmers, brewers and vintners as possible, coupled with many of our favorite wines from the rest of the world. In a relaxed atmosphere, with lots of outdoor seating, come try locally created shareable plates in our upscale wine bar. And, we want to make kids feel special with their own selection of small plates and specialty drinks.
