It was a year ago that Sea Salt Eatery opened for the season at Minnehaha Park only to close 2 days later because of the unwelcome arrival of some April snow.

The seafood restaurant next to Minnehaha Falls is hoping for better luck this time around, announcing that it will be opening for the season on Friday, Apr. 12.

The re-opening of the various eateries around Twin Cities lakes is one of the signs that the worst is over and summer is on its way.

It's probably not a good time then to direct you to our Weather MN blog, the latest post in which hints that there's a chance we could see some snow next week.

Another prominent lakeside restaurant, Sandcastle at Lake Nokomis, hasn't set on a definitive date yet, but has confirmed that it will be opening for the season by the end of April.

Lola on the Lake at Bde Maka Ska meanwhile has said it plans to open by mid-April.

There's no word yet on when Bread & Pickle at Lake Harriet will be opening its kiosk,
