I had six people at Keys for lunch. The short summary of our visit was: mediocre to poor for food and very poor for service. I had the Farmer's omelet and the onions were large and very raw. My wife had Eggs Benedict Florentine and was not impressed. The rest said their food was ok. Large quantities of food did... More

Stopped for lunch today. Looked over the specials on the board while waiting to be seated. Didn't take long to get seated. Hostess was sweet and kept a big smile throughout my visit. Ordered the California burger/fries. Bus person brought me water. Waved down the server as I was sort of hidden in a booth. She was very sweet. Told... More

I have been working in MSP for over a year. I liked Keys so I took some out of town associates to the one on University North. The service was HORRIBLE. It took us over an hour to get soup, salad and sandwiches. Waitress kept disappearing. Only 4 other active tables in the whole place at that time. Our waitress... More

Keys in Roseville is known for it's large portions and the home cooking it offers. Many, many choices and breakfast is their pride and job. Give the waffles a try. You won't be disappointed.

Way overpriced, slow service and way too much food. No one asked how our food was and our seats were not clean!

We ate at Keys after the Turkey Trot Thanksgiving Day. 4 different breakfast meals were ordered and enjoyed. Food was excellent, service was way above average, all staff members were super friendly, we bought a scone to try later and loved that too. Reasonable prices, large portions. Will return when we are in the area.

Have know the Keys family restaurants for over 30 years. Barb & family have served home style, good quality for a long time. The carrot cake is to die for. Its generally busy and not the fastest but the wait is worthwhile.

Always good food, but they need some help solving seating problems. Came with a group of ten and proceeded to wait 40 minutes, watching everyone else get seated, including two groups of six. Ended up getting two tables on opposite sides of the restaurant. Quite an inconvenience because five in our party were children.
