Be prepared to wait but the food is worth it!

Don't go here if you are in a hurry. It takes awhile to be seated, get service and to get your food BUT the food is so good! Huge portions. Yummy home cooking. I had the Loon Omelet which had MN wild rice in it. The menu selection is huge, from breakfast served all day to sandwiches, salads and... read more

My husband and I stopped at Keys last night on our way home from an out of town trip. Neither of us wanted to cook so this seemed like an easy choice. I have not been to any of the Keys locations in several years and the last visit was with friends to the Roseville location. The decor is upbeat... More

We had lunch here on our way to the Cities. We loved their food and service was terrific. We had a breakfast, burgers and grilled cheese sandwich. The serving sizes were very generous and super hot. We'll go back again.

The service was really terrible and the waitress seemed annoyed to be working. The food was boring and they use log cabin syrup instead of real maple syrup.

I love the food at Keys however the service is horrible. We gave the host our name and waited only a short time for our table. It was a nice day so we asked to sit outside, we were told that people who had come in after us had already asked to sit outside so we would have to sit... More

If you're looking for good food and lots of it, you need to go to Key's Cafe in Forest Lake. I've had plenty of good meals here, you really can't miss with whatever you pick. The only issues I've run up against is that the service can be slow and the noise level when the place is full can be... More

I went to Key's Cafe in Roseville when I was in college & loved it. So when I and two of my friends went up to visit a friend, we decided to have brunch at Key's in Forest Lake. Perfection takes time, so we had to wait a little longer than "normal," but my traditional Eggs Benedict definitely made up... More

Large menu which seems a bit pricey at first but a careful perusal will reveal some interesting and tasty bargains. 8 of us ordered dinner here and everyone had something different. No matter what the dish was everything was fresh, tasty, well prepared, and the portions were ample. The service was fast and first rate. I was rather astonished at... More

I was driving from Minneapolis to Duluth and stopped here. Wanted a local chain or Mom and Pop and not a Perkins or Denny's etc. Obviously a choice of the locals. Sat at the counter since the dining room was nearly full. Was not impressed with the wait staff that helped me. When I asked if I could substitute a... More
