4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Sandie is a great waitress. The food is just good ole' home cooking. The senior menu is ample. Liver and onions is a favorite.

“Best onion rings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I definitely recommend The Kernel. The coffee is delicious and the onion rings too. They are known for great pies. I had what was supposed to be a shaved deli turkey sandwich and it was a bit disappointing. But I still recommend it! They have a lot of variety on the menu--they serve breakfast all day which is always a plus to me!

Great prices, family freindly menu and great service, we visit Owatonna A LOT and this is one of our go-to's for a place to eat. Bonus that it is locally owned and operated.
