The food is good. I have only had one bad experience and I have eaten there several times. The price is average and fits the food.

Next to our hotel so convenient. Service ok and food ok. Usually busy place because across from St. Marys Hospital but they can serve many different diet options and are willing to do so.

Ate one meal here on our last night of visiting St Mary's Hospital, but wished we would have eaten here more meals here. Had the shrimp and seafood bisque--far better than the chowder we had at Red Lobster the night before! And the Chilean Salmon was perfect, with no fishy taste. A tall beer made the meal a real treat--and... More

This place is definitely a local gem. The walleye was a large piece and the elegance lies in its simplicity of preparation. Friendly Service and reasonably priced too.

My first impression when my 16 year old daughter wished to celebrate her 1st new job. Her choice for the celebration would be at the Honker...REALLY? Located adjacent (across the street) to St. Mary's (one of Mayo Clinics hospitals) amounts to a very convenient location for a lunch or dinner that can be done without serious time constraints. Again, I'm... More

Canadian Honker is small town flavor (as in everything appears and tastes homemade)! Recent trip to Rochester had us dine at the restaurant multiple times. Most importantly, the staff didn't even flinch when I asked if they could accommdate special dietary restrictions necessary for tests at the hospital. In fact, waitress Robyn went above and beyond. The gesture was much... More

Very easy walk from Mayo Hospital. Pleasant environment. Clean restaurant and rest rooms. Polite, friendly, informed wait staff. Pork chop, chopped sirloin, chicken riche, and cod dinners were very nice. Fair price. A good experience. Would return if in the area.

I had an enjoyable meal at the Canadian Honker, today. I had their special, which was a Walleye Platter for lunch. The Walleye came with four fair sizes of fried fish, which were a light delight to eat. The special came with fries and coleslaw. Fries were pretty much typical when coming to fries. The coleslaw was almost sweet and... More

I've been to this restaurant several times over several years, and the food is always good. It's above average for what you'd expect from the outside. It looks like a diner kind of a place but it's nicer than that. I've often had the Walleye. You can get that grilled, Parmesan-crusted, or regularly crusted. The waitstaff always recommends the Parmesan... More
