Succulent broiled shrimp

We had a great meal; popovers, excellent house salad, & both broiled & coconut shrimp. We've had steak there too & it's been tender & delicious. We love Jensen's!

An excellent spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Outstanding food with lots of choices. There is a down side to this place, however, and that's the parking. Although there is a parking ramp close by, it involves lots of walking and stairs. There are very few parking spots right by the restaurant. There is usually a wait for a table,... More

Their Swedish Pancakes with Maple Butter Syrup are the greatest. Saturday is busy, yet Sundays get very busy. Midweek there is little if any waiting to go try these pancakes...then you will know why people come back on Sundays and wait to get in!

We were looking for a "midway location" to meet some friends for a late breaksfast and chose this spot. Upon arriving we were told there would be a 10 to 15 minute wait (our friends had already been waiting over 15 mintes). When we finally got seated we were greeted by our very pleasant server who didn't press us to... More

This is one of my favorite breakfast restaurants in the Twin Cities area. They aren't cheap, but the prices are close enough to a Perkins-style restaurant and the food is so much better that it is a great value. The coffee has always been to my liking, and I haven't had a bad experience with the wait-staff. Be aware that... More

This business chooses to turn away customers rather than provide a positive customer service experience. In addition to the last reviewer's comments that the food is overpriced and underwhelming, they will not serve to-go on Sunday morning. Even when there's nobody in the restaurant, many hours before the church crowd.

I'd wanted to visit Jensen's for quite a while. Was able to go with my mother early this afternoon. She'd always raved about the breakfast, so I was excited to see it was served at anytime. Fun to see all the different benedict options! The one I chose had smoked salmon - fantastic. I'd definitely return

We live in Burnsville and Jensen's is our regular go to place for a good meal. Breakfast is always good. They have great daily specials and their homemade salad dressings are awesome especially the French.
