Artisan Bistro is a WONDERFUL place - the food is amazing and the ambiance is terrific. It has been a great add to the Prior Lake area. I personally enjoy the display of local artwork (available for purchase) as well. Don't forget to check out the ceiling when you walk in... it's neat. THANKS BEN & NAN for sharing your dream with us!

I always enjoy Mr. Goodrich's human interest stories, but I think this is one of his best. What an inspiration Ben is to all of us getting up in years, experience and knowledge to have the rug pulled out from under. You go, Ben and Nan, your success is motivation to everyone.

It's about time this fantastic cafe got some press! My family has been in love with this restaurant from the day it opened, and they continue to impress. It's obvious that Ben and Nan care deeply about the food they prepare and serve-that's something that can't be faked. Can't wait to see the next stage of their journey!
