Always Perfect - and Popovers!!!

Love Popovers? I do, and here you will find the best! They bring them when you get there, and they are always fresh, warm and delicious! The restaurant is cozy but elegant, yet we feel totally at ease in very casual clothes at lunch. A great place for a special event, too, but nice for a lunch... read more

Macy's Oak Grill in downtown Minneapolis has retained it ambience and elegance over the years. Popovers are great. The service and food very good as well.

The Oak Grill in Macy's is the definition of class. Great food and attentive service. Book ahead to get a table near the fire place to really feel the charm.

The atmosphere is so nice with cloth tablecloths. And the food is delicious. We ordered almond-crusted walleye which came with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetable. The dinner also comes with popovers! Yum! For dessert we shared the cheesecake with brandied blueberries. The two of us couldn't finish it. The service was fantastic! I can't wait to eat here again when... More

The restaurant was a surprise. This is the first time I have stayed in the Nicollet shopping area and when looking at restaurant.com we saw that they had certificates for the Oak Grill. The restaurant is cozy with a fireplace. The food was decent price, quality and quantity was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and knew how to do her... More

This is a nice place to eat for a shopping break. The atmosphere is super nice, dark paneling with a fireplace. They take reservations and has great food. They are know for their popovers which is served before your meal, coming out hot with butter...YUMO! It's worth it just for the popovers. We both had the mandarin chicken salad and... More

Great holiday tradition. Oak paneled room dates back to 1947. Nice ambience with roaring fireplace and great menu. Wild rice soup and most menu items are outstanding including the pot pie.

They don't take reservations, it's way up on the 12th floor of Macy's, it's downtown so parking is a challenge, but that doesn't deter anyone. Is there an old-school restaurant where everyone can take mom or grandma or both during the holidays? This is it. Good food, they serve beer, wine, and cocktails, and the food is great.
