Excellent Place For Any of your meals

This down to earth restaurant has a rather extensive menu, especially for breakfast and dinner. The food is very good and the staff very friendly. It can be busy, however, because many of the staff and employees of St. Mary's Hospital across the street choose to eat their meals there. It is an... read more

We are here at lunch while visiting Mayo Clinic. The food was good but the service was lacking. It was a busy time of day so maybe that was it.

Just not the type of food that we are used to. Staff was nice and very close to Aspen Suite and St. Mary's. Just different food than we are used to......I guess the bunnie cake is what you need to get for dessert.

One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. A variety of food with great wait staff. They actually have a sign in the back that says try not to say no to customers.

Stopped in one evening for dinner. Atmosphere was fun with a live band. Server was helpful and prompt. I ordered the chicken salad and homemade vegetable soup. Salad was good and satisfying, but not great. Vegetable Soup was excellent! I also enjoyed the coconut cake to go. Serving size was large. Overall, very good dinner.

We had dinner here while visiting the Mayo Clinic. The restaurant is practically across the street from St. Mary's Hospital. We thought the food was good. Service was good but nothing special. With a name like Canadian Honker we thought the place would be near a park or river where all the Canadian honkers are. The restaurant is on the... More

We ate here for a family birthday and loved it.The atmosphere is suitable for all types of visits. Quality dining and semi-formal to informal attire abounded. Some in suits as well, but not many. Has a bar and one could easily enjoy drinks and appetizers after work. Parking lot across street on east is easily accessible. We were greeted warmly... More

great location if you're visiting St. Mary's Hospital/Mayo Clinic. Very nice, casual atmosphere with a very wide variety of salads, fish (great walleye!) and with having choices OTHER than "deep fried".

Wasn't our favorite place for breakfast, food was decent and a little pricey for what it was. May need to try something for lunch or dinner here sometime?

This restaurant is right across the street from Mayo St. Mary's hospital. The nights I returned to my hotel exhausted from a day with my husband at the hospital, it was nice to be able to get a good meal and a drink close by. Food here is good (not great), but the quality is consistent. I can say this... More
