Helpful staff, great options

You can order half-orders of appetizers! And the hot beef sandwich was perfect on a rainy day. Love the Honker.

We ate here several times while at the Mayo clinic with our mom. The staff was very friendly, asking about our mom each time we were there. The breakfast food is excellent with perfectly fried hash browns. I had soup and a hot sandwich on a rainy day for lunch and it was the perfect comfort food.

After 5 days in Rochester, (and after having to fast for over 24 hours) we were looking for a good supper. Didn't want a supper "club." Didn't want a high brow seafood place downtown. Didn't want Oriental OR Mexican. Didn't want Italian. We wanted normal, good food and a beer. Sure glad we came to the Canadian Honker! I had... More

Love this place, soups are incredible and always have at least one 'Blue cheese burger' every trip! Outdoor seating and friendly staff. Across from St Marys hospital.

My husband had the beef sandwich.. it was overcooked and dry the au jus was something strange and tomato-y. He left the second half. I had the roast beef and gravy the last time and was disappointed so this time I ordered the turkey and gravy... over weird mashed potatoes that had something in it like bread dough. The gravy...

Now I understand why this great restaurant has won so many awards. If you are expecting a five star very upscale experience, you will be disappointed. If you looking for a welcoming, great food, great service casual atmosphere, then you found it. The menu has something for everyone from steak to wraps. We loved dinner so much that we came... More

Our late lunch / early dinner was very good. Not crowded, good service, good menu selection, good taste, quantity was ideal ( we did not need to eat more and we did not want leftovers) and good value etc. Dinner salad was good and tuna facacia (spelling = ? ) was good as well. The desserts looked wonderful and would... More

When you think of food in Minnesota this is the restaurant to try. Excellent menu, friendly efficient service, family oriented.. Good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sandwiches are big and tasty. Try the marble rye bread. The ribs are an excellent choice for dinner. And OMG you have to try the coconut cake for dessert. Comfortable, pleasant bar. Just across... More
