The breakfast/brunch platters... absolutely incredible! MUST HAVE a sweet roll to start, and the cookies after-words are magnificent! The staff is always experienced--to the point where they offer a witty and borderline sarcastic jokes that make the atmosphere absolutely terrific! It's a unique joint, and nothing like their airport location-which is also a must stop when traveling through MSP. Hat's... More

Ike's serves the best burgers on Nicolette Avenue. The restaurant has an upscale feel with white table cloths and the servers wearing white aprons. The bar runs the length of the restaurant with tables and booths snuggled on both sides. Although the decor is classy, we've worn jeans here several times and never felt out of place. The best thing... More

Menu looked fun, wanted to try someplace new... No wonder they are at the airport too... Service was uneven, most things on the menu were fried. My colleagues ordered burgers which they enjoyed. We were there during happy hour, which was great.

Great place to get some food that's close to the hotels. The staff is friendly. Seems almost like a locals bar as the people there are so kind. I had the steak and potatoes. I wasn't to fond of the mushrooms that they put on the steak at all but the rest of my mean was very good.

Took the family to my favorite spot in Minny!! My 12 and 14 yr old boys raved about the Burgers and Shakes! We all shared a the Guacamole to start with, which was fantastic. Service was a bit slow outside, never had an issue inside though.

This popular bar/restaurant never disappoints us on the quality of food & overall service either. The menu is expansive with usual bar fare & beverages; the table side prepared guacamole is A+ and a reason that we will actually go to their airport restaurant early enough to enjoy it prior to departure.

I went to this "restaurant" on my last trip out of MSP. I ordered the bbq pork sandwich which took forever to get. When it came the fries were cold and the sandwich was the worst bbq pork sandwich I had. It tasted like they may have put floor scrapings on a bun. It had a very bad flavor. I... More
