Humble Beginnings

Two servers working together at The Nicollet Island Inn during the 1990s honed their skills at one of the Twin Cities premier restaurant/hotels. After work hours, David Burley and Stephanie Shimp dreamed up the idea for what became the Highland Grill.

3 Squares restaurant was the 5th restaurant in the Blue Plate Restaurant Company family. 3 Squares has proudly served the Maple Grove and surrounding area since 2008, and was the first restaurant in the Northwest Suburbs for Blue Plate.
