Good lunch menu

Went for lunch and had taco salad which was good in that it was served with chips and not in a shell (my preference). Staff was being trained so had bonus of two but were so/so in that they kept walking by without asking how it was going. Overall, decent experience and would go back.

Nothing has changed since I was a kid and ate here. The food is standard but you cannot eat here but once a year. Atmosphere feels like a hospital with bright lights and white walls.

There's a nice variety on the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Couldn't ask for better convenience if you're visiting someone at St. Mary's. It can get busy sometimes, depending on the time and day. There's a full service bar, and ocassionally, there's live music provided. They have custom coffees and awesome homemade desserts. Been there several times and have... More

Everything we ordered was delicious, we'll definitely be eating their food again...but probably to go. I thought the inside was pretty blah. Tables, chairs, bar, cheesy decorations; standard hotel restaurant look with no personality. They should have a look that matches their food...desiring!

Went here for dinner. Waited for a table close to an hour on a Friday night. Didn't mind at the time as the reviews said it was a great place. Yeah, about that. I've had better on a good night at Denny's. And why are they known for this coconut cake? MEH! While edible, and not a horrible eating experience,... More

My wife and I had dinner here while in Rochester MN for an appointment at the Mayo Clinic. We avoid chains and traditional American cuisine when possible. This restaurant had a very nice menu, food was very good, service was great, plenty of free parking, and conveniently located on the main street near St Mary's Hospital. My wife did have... More

I have been to this restaurant twice, both times for breakfast. The first time was about 4 years ago when my mother was in the hospital. I had breakfast there. I ordered American fries and they tasted like they'd been cooked and then held for hours. The main problem though, was the food came cold. I told them when I... More

This place has been a mainstay for anyone visiting the Rochester hospitals or doing tests at the Mayo Clinic. They have kept up with the times with remodels and refreshing their menu. We went there for lunch and were not disappointed. Service was very good and the menu was extensive. Both of us were very happy with our meals.

I was here two years ago when my wife was at St. Mary's Hospital. It was awesome then and it's awesome now. I highly recommend as it seems everything is really good. I had the Hot Turkey sandwich, all home made ingredients. I was very full and I am a huge eater of comfort food. Wife had the Chicken Strips.... 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!
