We ate breakfast here, and it was delicious...however, the service was really slow. Good thing we weren't in a hurry because I believe we were there for close to an hour and a half!

This restaurant was about a block away from the hotel and was recommended by the front desk. It was a great choice. A menu with something for everyone from liver to salmon to pork chops, etc. My wife had a chicken sandwich with bacon and home made chips. The chips were great, perfectly crispy and not at all greasy. I... More

The goose décor didn't do it for me. The food is good but certainly on the pricier end of Rochester restaurants. Great desserts, full bar, and specialty coffees.

The food is good at Honker, and the service was good. This was my second visit to the restaurant and it just seems to need to take the food up a notch.

The Canadian Honker is a very good restaurant right across the street from Mayo Clinic. Theres usually a very long line to get a table but its worth it when you get your food. Ive gone there 3 times in the past and the majority of the service is very good. Always make sure you get a piece of Bunny's... More

My brother had the crispy chicken Penn and said it was delicious, my Cajun shrimp was also. We'll be back in a few weeks. Also, we tried the coconut cake,not to my... More

Their liver and onions are particularly good. They have homemade soups and their walleye is very good. Reasonable pricing too.

We went to the Canadian Honker yesterday for breakfast with a group of 11. They seated us at a comfortable table and brought coloring pages and crayons for the two kids in our group. The service was excellent and food outstanding. Everything was fresh and made with real, not processed ingredients. The homemade cinnamon roll and freshly squeezed orange juice... More

Candaian Honker is conveniently located directly across from St. Mary's Hospital with less than a minute walk. Ample parking is available one street over and the restaurant is decorated nicely. They have a good variety of food options and they also have live music and jazz once in a while. I had the Wild Rice Stuffed Walleye and it was... More

Canadian Honker is excellent of its type. But it's not a five star restaurant and shouldn't be compared with one. Hence three stars.
