Rushford’s charm

I’ve been to Lynndyn-Bridge Restaurant in Rushford a number of times since they first opened, and I am always impressed.

They provide a professional, classy dining establishment perfect for the daily lunch crowd or a night in which mom and dad feel like getting a babysitter to enjoy a night out on the town.

Lynndyn-Bridge has an extensive menu, which means I have lots of choices.

On Wednesday, March 20 (the official first day of Spring!), our sales team for the Fillmore County Journal met at Lynndyn-Bridge to celebrate the completion of the Visit Bluff Country Magazine.

Every year, we go through the process of preparing the most widely distributed tourism publication in Southeast Minnesota, Northeast Iowa, and Southwest Wisconsin. This is one of the most challenging and yet rewarding projects we coordinate every year. But, when the magazines arrive at our office in Preston, and we begin the distribution process, it’s all worth it. People love the magazine, and we appreciate the opportunity to make that happen.

So, after Sherry Hines, Sarah Wangen, Peggi Redalen, and myself ordered our meals, I asked how our team how the business climate was in each of the towns we serve for the Fillmore County Journal.

With the late breaking spring this year, the majority of our communities are clamoring at the chance to host crowds of tourists. But, beyond the anticipated tourism season, it sounds like many of our towns in Fillmore County are seeing signs of growth. Housing construction is on the rise thus far in 2013. News about business growth and development is funneling through the Journal office on a weekly basis, which is always a good sign.

When our food arrived, I was anxious to sink my appetite into the Turkey Bacon Wrap, and I was happily welcomed by a hearty and healthy meal. Actually, I was leaning toward another item on the menu, and then I heard Sherry Hines order the Turkey Bacon Wrap. I was on board to order the same thing. I have had steak, sandwiches and hamburgers at Lynndyn-Bridge, and they have all been fantastic!

While the owners, Gary and Bridgette Kampa, are always modest about the great restaurant they have brought to the greater Rushford area, they have something to brag about. The ambiance of their restaurant is truly unique -- the authenticity and the charm.

And, as our Journal lunch .....
