1st time going to The Whistling Bird and wow what a great place. All four of the people in my party had different dishes and all of them were excellent. Great food and good service. Highly recommend this restaurant for a great dining experience.
Sean/ Yelp Review
Thanks again Yelp. Found this excellent restaurant hidden away in Gilbert MN. For the Iron Range, the shift away from deep-fried-American "fare" is definitely noticeable. Numerous tropical rum drinks on the menu - some with cool tiki head glasses. The food is authentic and awesome; Jamaican jerk pork/chicken, shrimp dishes, curry, and lamb. I had a terrific Caesar salad followed by a curry dish w/ sweet potato & shrimp. The ice tea seemed homemade and very tasty. Give it a shot.

The Whistling Bird is truly a hidden gem in Gilbert MN. The food is certainly not what one would expect on the range, but it is absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is great - feels Caribbean, clean, and comfortable. I am so pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, I will definitely be back. I had the Ahi Tuna - not something that you can find on any menus in northern MN, and it was great - light sear, sesame, a mustard wasabi sauce.... wow. If you are ever within reach of The Whistling Bird, make sure to check it out.
