By day, lots of older people, okay food. By night very scary. gun totting, street pharmacists . VERY unsafe environment. Sad to have gone so low, fear of being attacked, just a bad idea all around. Beware of Fearful Ferns.

Good place for a large group and it is nice that they are local, but the brunch is not worth the money. Food is mediocre. Fish was dry - overcooked. Bacon cold, tough, sausages lacked flavor and were cold. Salads? - I don't like sugary

Had the Szechuan Chicken Salad. The underlying chicken pieces have a nice grilled taste, but are coated with something that looks like a combination of jelly & barbeque sauce, and tastes nothing like szechuan. Request that they don't put

Fabulous Ferns is a great place to grab a bite to eat and take in a little St Paul culture and history. They have a great menu and a lot of drinks to choose from. The staff is all very friendly.

Ferns has a great atmosphere and a very friendly staff. Their specials change weekly, their walleye is great and their pot-roast is something so delicious, one hears about it in legends. As far as prices go, I cannot understand how people can think this kind of food is expensive, they must be use to fine dinning at Perkins or a lovely night out at Taco Bell with some desert at Denny's. If you want cheap hog fodder, head down to Missouri and pay a visit to Jack in The Box. Ferns is a St. Paul staple, a must see for anyone visiting the cities!

Cons: Parking lot can get crowded during peak times

Ferns is a great neighborhood bar and restaurant. The staff is friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is fun and welcoming. They also have the best wine prices in the area, especially during happy hour. I have been frequenting Ferns for many years and I will continue to do so. To people who've had one not so great experience a few years ago, I'd say give it another try.

Jayna is terrific one off the best waitsaff in the cities. The prices are very reasonable and the food is great. Fern's offers "Early Bird " specials at reduced prices has a good happy hour and a great bar crowd. The restaurant is seperated from the bar for a comfortable dinner experience yet funtions as part of the overall scene.
Anyone that doesn't like Fern's has to have a hidden agenda or a sever personality
disorder.

We found Fabulous Ferns not so fabulous. We took our 4 grandparents there for a post theater Christmas get together at 4:30 pm on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was not busy but we had several very long waits for our waitress to check in on us. My son-in-law ordered a hamburger and fries which came out with rice pilaf instead. Pilaf and hamburger? Interesting. After bringing out all but one dinner the waitress asked if there was anything else we needed and then realized one salmon dinner was missing. She went to check on it and said it had burned in the oven and would take 5 mins to cook and that she'd bring me a bowl of soup if I liked. Several people at our table had fries with their meals which were cold. The salmon dinner never came and 25 mins later everyone had finished eating so I told the waitress to cancel the meal. She said there was nothing she could have done about it but she never came back to our table during that 25 mins to check on us or to explain what was going on. I talked to the manager and he said we wouldn't be charged for the meal that I never got.....thanks.

An unfinished portrait of "Fern" greets you upon entering this casual bistro. The only problem is, that picture also has appeared in a brothel/museum claiming to represent a madame from the area's history. So who is she? Debate this while scarfing down a tasty open-faced sandwich - what Fern makes best.

Maybe I am too used to the prices at Minneapolis restaurants, but the value here seems really good to me. Food we had on a recent Saturday night was great. My group of four was seated right away with no reservation. Mussels and Bruchetts for apps did the job and my pasta was above average. Heard no complaints from anyone at my table. Restaurant and bar split in half by automatic doors. Must have something to so with smoking ban. Only downside is ou waitress had no personality.

Pros: Free parking, seated w/ no res, prices

I dont return to Ferns too often, but every time I do Ive had a great experience. The Tuscan pizza is unbelievably good, and the Chocolate Obsession cannot be missed. The ambiance is great for pretty much any occasion you can imagine; from casual to near-formal. The service is spotty at times, but its generally worth it for the food.

I will not return here. The seating arrangement in the bar is odd, with reserved tables (I have never seen that before) and no one checking to see if the reservers showed. My wife and I were relegated to the most uncomfortable bar stool positions. The room is smoky, odd because it is very large. Our bar-type food was average or worse. Fried squid was tough (overcooked), and the wings were the tiniest I have ever seen, in fact I did not know such chickens existed! My wife's mojito was incorrectly made (with creme de menthe rather than mint) and tasted bad as a result. Everything was pricey: happy hour deals were poor and we paid 23 dollars/person for two appetizers, three beers, the mojito, and dessert.

Pros: Variety, Late Night Food, Great Wines & Drinks

Great place to have a casual dinner and drink with friends. The food is always good and it's always fun to play a game of darts or video trivia after dinner. They've also got some fun summer drink specials and outdoor seating. However, I did see a horrible band there the night of Grand Old Days. Fern's normally doesn't have live music and I think they should generally stay away from it. A bar can't be everything to everyone. I prefer to go somewhere else for live music. Fern's, stick to what you are good at. Great atmosphere, plus good drinks and good food.
