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.

Ordered the eggs Benedict with Spinach. Curiously, they added a slice of tomato. Unfortunately it was unripe and inedible. The hollandaise sauce was cold and tasted synthetic. Hoping I won't be sick. The hash browns were starchy, greasy and unseasoned. There are better options for a great breakfast elsewhere.

Another one of one of our semi-regular places to lunch. The food is always well prepared and served by a happy wait staff and all at a very reasonable price.
