Thumbs up! Great breakfast and humongous portions! I swear my cinnamon bun was almost as long as my forearm!! And specialty coffee; white mochas at breakfast, can't beat that! Dinner here is excellent too. I hear the bunny cakes are the best. We'll be back for sure!!

The Blue Cheese Burger was one of the best I've had. My wife had a Stir Fry that she said was great, but too much for her to eat all of it. Parking was easy. The restaurant was very clean, bright, and the staff was great.

Walleye sandwich was delicious! Restaurant was very busy on a Tuesday night. We sat outside on the patio, which was nice, but service was slow.

If you like sandwiches, I recommend their Club. My wife recommends the Pot Roast Wrap. We'll be back again to try other things on the menu the next time our travels take us to Rochester. Definitely a place you need to check out when you're in town.

Had to keep chasing down the waitress when we wanted something because she wasn't around much. Ended up eating lunch. Food came quickly, steak cooked as... More

We had heard about the Honker so made a point of eating there our first night here. We weren't disappointed. We had the shaved strip sandwich - lots of tender and tasty meat. The French fries were done just right. We didn't have room for dessert but plan to try one of the tasty looking choices next time - which... More

This is about the same as eating at a chain restaurant. Outback Perkins chili's etc. won't go back. Will explore other options because there are many in the area.
