A Minneapolis tradition was born on October 2, 1947, when the Oak Grill opened for business. Architect Bob Hansen used characteristics from the Jacobean period in the design of the rooms. The ornate fireplace, originally from Salisbury, England, was over 300 years old when it was transported in sections and reassembled in the Oak Grill. With its solid oak columns and vast frame, it soon became the room's focal point. Its distinctive appearance, along with dark paneling, red chairs and dim lighting, help give the Oak Grill its cozy ambiance.

very good, but.....

We hadn't been in this dining room since it was "Dayton's". The restaurant was not prepared for the large crowd that came to see the flower show. Why not? 45 minute wait for a table. The waitress clearly had more tables than she could handle. Long wait for food. The good news was that the... read more

We have been going to The Oak Grill at Macy's in Minneapolis for about 32 years on Christmas Eve. It is decorated beautifully in the Christmas spirit. They are famous for their popovers as a starter. They have a pointsetta cocktail that is light and festive. The white chocolate bread pudding was also delicious. It is a family tradition that... More

We went with family and our 14 month old to have breakfast at Macy's at 9 AM, and then meet Santa. This is done on the top floor, with a wonderful buffet set out. You can even have Mimosas! The food was great with scrambled eggs, bacon, French toast, fruit, home fries, juices, breads, buns, etc. and the Santa looked... More

Try the pizza... it's delicious. Affordable and fast! Macy's basement dining is worth a try for sure.

We discovered the salad bar on the top floor of the Macy's in downtown Minneapolis last summer. $8.95 for all you can eat salad, soup, and bread. All the veggies are fresh, there are a dozen kinds of dressing to choose from. There are four kinds of yummy breads to choose from and six different kinds of soup (on both... More

This upscale but very reasonable deli style at Macy's is a super place for a quick lunch while on a power shopping trip. Fast service and fresh fruit, vegetables, cheeses, breads, soups and everything. Nice to be able to eat and run.

Description

A Minneapolis tradition was born on October 2, 1947, when the Oak Grill opened for business. Architect Bob Hansen used characteristics from the Jacobean period in the design of the rooms. The ornate fireplace, originally from Salisbury, England, was over 300 years old when it was transported in sections and reassembled in the Oak Grill. With its solid oak columns and vast frame, it soon became the room's focal point. Its distinctive appearance, along with dark paneling, red chairs and dim lighting, help give the Oak Grill its cozy ambiance.
