Description: The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team.Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and we're the best place to watch the game. No matter what part of the country you're in, you are sure to find a neighborhood Champps nearby

We ate at the breakfast buffet since we stayed at the adjoining hotel. It had so many wonderful options and everything was delicious!

For the price of food and drinks its not the greatest. 15 dollars for a burger is was expecting a little more than a burger you could get at Dennis and i have had 200$ steaks before and I understand at this kind of place the steak won’t be a 200$ steak but i was expecting better then a steak...

Had pre-concert drinks and dinner. We had great service and a great dinner. Mandarin Orange Margaritas - enough said!

The service was good, but not great. The food was OK, but not great. The ambience was good but not great, at least they had a game on. This place is just another Ho Hum chain sports bar and grill to me.

Traveling for the holidays can be stressful but finding a restaurant that I was familiar with (in Minnetonka MN) and knowing that they always had great food and service I convinced my friend it was the place to stop. It wasn't busy yet and most wait staff were just standing around - but our food was cold - the grease... More

Read some good reviews which is why we chose to go here and was very disappointed, the place was packed, one big room and the noise was deafening, way to many tables jammed together server couldn't get around, food was OK, maybe if they shrunk the menu a little it would be better.

We have eaten at this location many times. The menu has something for everyone in the family. Unlike, many chain restaurants, we found out that Champps makes everything fresh, from scratch. No pouches of food here! That explains why we have always been impressed with our selections. We would highly recommend it. Atmosphere is loud and bustling. Service is top... More

A nice atmosphere for watching sports games or casual lunch. I've had every item on the menu and have been pleased with the size of the portions and price. Service is always friendly. Lots of TVs and great sound for the premiere game. Awesome specialty drinks too!

Some restaurants seem to think that everyone wants tons of pepper & hot sauce with everything they eat. Some people will enjoy Champps for that reason. The menu is about like an Applebee's, but more expensive. Quality of the food is passable (my salmon was burned black in one area, but it flaked off and the rest was fine), again... More
