Some of the best service and food we have had in the Minneapolis area. The food is always wonderful and the bloody Mary's are the best in town.

Party of 4 for breakfast. Servers had a hard time keeping up and a couple of errors were made in the order. Beautiful setting but a bit pricey for what we received.

Go early on a Sunday for a great breakfast in downtown Minneapolis. A twin cities restaurant chain. The food menu has many good choices. I recommend trying a variety (blueberry, granola and banana) of pancakes.

They offer a free delivery if you are staying downtown. We ordered food and got it delivered to our hotel. The prices are reasonable. Once the order got delivered we got the wrong order on Sunday morning. We called back to let them know and were on hold for almost 15 minutes. We hung up after 12 minutes because we... More

Met friends for a Sunday morning brunch here. The wait can get long, and they will not seat until all in the party have shown up. Other than that, which I fully understand, the food is good. I've also eaten at the location on University and in Roseville. The portions are large and value is excellent. Final note: The service... More

We have been to this restaurant many times, and have always enjoyed it. It is one of a few places to go for a sitdown breakfast in downtown Minneapolis.

I loved that you can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner at any time in this place!! We ducked into this place on our walk in below zero temps to have a quick beer and ended up staying for soup and pot stickers. The happy hour is amazing!! Great deals!

Our extended family, ranging from groups of 6 to 10, ate breakfast at Keys at the Foshay three mornings in a row during a recent visit to Minneapolis. Each time, we were seated quickly, we were treated very well by our servers, and we enjoyed good food. The fresh orange juice is definitely recommended. Our group ordered everything from eggs...
