From 1999 - Mpls-St. Paul Magazine... "Hans Skalle, Chonhassen. I was the manager of the Interlachen Country Club when I got the idea to open my own restaurant. I thought Bloomington needed something with a continental menu. When my wife, Mavis, and I were in Hawaii for a conference, we saw a restaurant made of stone and we conceived the idea of a restaurant that would look like a castle. My son, Hans II, had been playing with toy knights and said, "Dad, call it `Camelot.'

Gerald Rauenhorst built the building, and I managed the restaurant. It cost $800,000 to build and was 20,000 square feet. We used Minnesota split field rock and had gas turrets coming out of each side of the moat around the building. Towers too. Paul Albitz designed the interior, using stone and oak paneling. We had a gold carpet custom-made for us. Paul found a suit of armor for the main hallway, and we had the giant chandelier handmade by someone in Winona. We were published in many national magazines because of our interior. Unfortunately, people started to take things--the spears that were on the walls and a beautiful bench from downstairs. Original paintings also disappeared. This happened early, just after we opened, and we had to put big screws in everything to protect it.

I was amazed when we opened. Everybody came. People waited an hour or two to get in. We had to shut the lights off at the entrance, so people wouldn't keep coming..."
