The notice in the local Lake City newspaper October 29 announced the Going Out Of Business Sale. Even after the Food Network Restaurant Impossible makeover, the food and service did not improve enough in this small town with many places to eat, to save it.

We had cheese curds, bacon cheeseburger and fresh cut fries. The food is average. Nothing bad to say about this place. The service was fine and there weren't a ton of people there, so the wait was short.

Third time trying Bronks , horribly disappointed in the lack of service, and waiting 49 minutes for burgers and fish sandwiches when there were only 10 customers in the bar is inexcusable. Sorry to say, there are 15 other places to grab a bite and Bronks will not be one we choose again.

The Bronk's Bar & Grill has an exciting new menu. The staff are friendly and are willing to work with special diets for the patrons. The restaurant was also on "Restaurant Impossible" last Fall.

We stopped here and enjoyed some wonderful nachos and cheese curds. The food came hot and was tasty. Also i tried their chocolate molten cake and it was good. I would eat here again and I thought the price for the items were fair. The server was pleasant. I loved the decorating.

The drive from Hwy. 61 south of Minneapolis is a great way to see the scenic upper Mississippi River valley, but the choices for a decent dinner along the way aren't many. Bronk's, located in sailboat-addicted Lake City, is the best meal I've found between St. Paul and La Crosse. Now don't get too excited -- it's just a bar... More

I have visited Lake City once a year for the last 15 years. I have eaten at Bronks prior to the Robert Irvine remodel as well as after. The decor is nice, but the restaurant food that I and my guests had was lousy. The service was ok, but it seemed that the employees were more interested in the bar... More

We were going to Lake City for the day and decided to try out Bronk's Bar & Grill after having seen it on Restaurant Impossible. It was fun actually seeing something that had been transformed so beautifully. We were initially wowed by the beer menu which included almost all micro brewery beers which I've never seen in a bar &... More

We stopped in on a Friday evening for an early dinner. My husband always wants to visit places that have been on tv. It looked closed from the outside, so we almost skipped it. However once inside it was bright and open. There were not a lot of people at 5 pm, and the service was fast and very friendly.... More

Food was excellent, all FRESH veggies in the Nacho's, fresh cut fries like mom made, almost impossible to find for this price range and a delicious wrap. Staff was very professional and the decor for some reason reminded me of the "art deco" in Miami Beach. Fun place to go, very clean and a bonus is the incredible walking trail... More
