The Best Rehearsal Dinner Spots Near Red Wing

Whether you’ve come to our wedding venue from near or far, rehearsal dinners are the perfect way to gather with your bridal party and family members ahead of your big day and celebrate your upcoming nuptials. Though rehearsal dinners can be catered and held onsite in the same spot as your ceremony, more often than not, couples and their bridal party choose to enjoy time at one of the restaurants and other banquet halls around Red Wing. 

From rehearsal dinners at our favorite local restaurants to those held at beautiful vineyards, we have a fantastic roundup of facilities that accommodate larger parties and events like these. 

  1. One of our favorite spots for rehearsal dinners in Red Wing is Falconer Vineyards. With great wine and food and an unbeatable view looking over the bluffs of the Mississippi River, it’s hard to beat.
  2. How about a traditional Supper Club experience for something unique to the Midwest? We recommend Wiederholts Supper Club for a more formal rehearsal dinner experience. 
  3. If you’re looking for a casual place to gather with friends and family, consider Smokin Oak, a fantastic rotisserie-style grill!
  4. If you have out-of-town guests coming to your wedding and are not staying with us at the Bed and Breakfast, the St. James Hotel is a great place to stay. This venue also has a fantastic option for rehearsal dinners. The Scarlet in the historic St.James Hotel offers a great view of the Mississippi River, cute cocktails, and a unique menu for you to try!
  5. For a fantastic local restaurant with excellent food, consider Home Plate Grill in downtown Red Wing. You won’t regret it!
