Went to this place last weekend. Pizza was amazing and the view on the river on way back to St.Paul was worth the trip!
We went to the Northfield one- it was a great place but the night we went it took two hours to get our pizza. There were soooo many people there. Not sure if we went on an unusual night?? So next time we will bring activities to do to keep my kids entertained.
The Red Barn Pizza Farm was wiped out in a cluster of tornadoes that hit the area from Mankato to our town, Cannon Falls on Sept. 20, 2018!!
