Terrible Bakery! Beware of bottoms

Stopped at Keys to pick up an alleged treat for my Great Grandma and relatives as she is in hospice and used to rave about them. We were there early on a Saturday morning so you would think they would have been nice and fresh. Turns out they were so hard and over done or dry and old that you... read more

The Café is the usual family style restaurant. The meals are HUGE and you usually have to take some home. I love their turkey and hot beef sandwich. They are usually very busy, but the wait is worth it....

Keys serves consistently good food. Quality breakfast and lunch place, and fine for comfort dinner. We have some favorites, and often order without need for a menu.

Food is good but service is terribly SLOW! It took wait staff 10 minutes to get our drink order. We've watched 2 tables get their food in the mean time! Waitress spent no time at our table and was is such a rush! Service is not a priority! Food was great and hot!

I've heard great things about this place so we decided to stop on our way to the Twin Cities on January 15th, 2015. We were seated right away but it took over 15 minutes for a waitress to finally stop at our table. It seemed like we were seated in an area with no waitress assigned. Our food came at... More

Great location and the wait staff is super friendly, colorful and well dressed. However the hostess' are often terribly slow, distracted or uninterested. The food is GENEROUS in portions, fresh ingredients and well plated! There is a small breakfast bar/bar and they serve some alcohol, but no mixed drinks..so this is not for your Sunday Bloody Mary's! It also has... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and the food is away done to perfection. Good old comfort food at a reasonable price. The place is bright and the booths are very comfortable. They have some very large booths along one wall and 4 person booths along the other with tables in the center. A fireplace at one end... More

I eat here about twice a month. The portions are big. The food is good. Always good service. Their wild rice soup is great and do is their Potatoes Etc. under the breakfast menu. Another of favorite of mine for breakfast is the corned beef hash with eggs. Breakfast is available throughout the day.

They have very good breakfast with lots to choose from. It does get very busy later in the morning so be prepared to wait if it mid morning on weekend.
