A Good Choice

If nothing else, the name is intriguing - Canadian Honker. The food is good, the prices are fair and the service is also good. It was on our "shuttle route" while staying in Rochester, so we gave it a try. My spousal unit and I were both pleased with the restaurant and ate there twice. Good basic... read more

Don't waste your time. Ordered a Rubin sandwich. No cheese and no spread. Ordered a warm dessert served refrigerator cold. Other places to dine. Don't choose this one!

We felt it was like every other average restaurant, nothing special. Wait staff was friendly and it was a comfortable place.

4 of us ordered the All you Can eat Fish and it took awhile for her to check on us for more food. Got tired of sitting there. She was super pleasant but was a little slow to check on us after our food arrived. Very busy place.

My daughter and I stopped here for an early dinner after a long day at the Mayo. It was recommended by a local friend. The menu was not lacking in choice but we didn't find the food anything other than average. We took a piece of bunny cake to go. The cake was extra tasty but the frosting was the... More

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 institution in Rochester, MN, to eat at... 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.
