One good thing about a day like today – cool, cloudy – is that you can probably have lunch or dinner at Tin Fish on Lake Calhoun without waiting in a line that snakes around the building. We stopped by yesterday around 1 p.m., when the skies were overcast, and there was no line at all.

We ordered a Mini Tin (two pieces of breaded fried cod on a hot dog bun, still a bargain at $2.75), a grilled shrimp taco ($4.95), and a small side order of waffle fries ($2.95), and enjoyed the million dollar view of the lake. Shorter lines mean shorter waits, too – everything is cooked to order, but our order was ready in less than 10 minutes. Prices have crept up a bit, but are still not bad: the Tin Fish Combo of four pieces of cod, three shrimp, two scallops, and six pieces of calamari has gone up a dollar to $15.95.
Tin Fish, 3000 Calhoun Parkway East – Minneapolis, 612-823-5840. Open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. through Labor Day; shorter hours through October.
