“Fresh food prepared on site!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

High quality food. But it's a little on the bland side. Nice atmosphere in a small establishment. Great lunch buffets. Nothing from frozen here! Desserts are excellent!

“These guys know how to drive a stove!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Interesting menu--good execution, nice decor. The service was prompt. The bar is well-stocked and friendly. It's quiet.

It's NOT "fine dining"--with associated inflated costs--just food well-prepared. They do their best to provide different and interesting dishes. A good value for the dining dollar.

“Consistently good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My only complaint about Toreys is that it always seems a little dark in there. No windows. However, the staff is friendly, attentive and the food is always good. Torey's also has a private room that seats about 50 and is perfect for Family Events, small receptions and again, his buffets are very tasty. Torey will also cater and has some awesome options for wedding receptions. Try his artichoke, spinach and cheese dip with garlic rounds. Out of this world.

“Great Lunch spot with small town service appeal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I found Torrey's here on TA and have to say I was not disappointed. The presentation of the food wasn't fancy but it tasted great! It is need of a renovation, but nothing a fresh coat of paint couldn't fix. The booths were comfortable and my friend and Ihad a nice relaxing lunch. The staff was friendly, cheerful and about as happy as we were to have Dt. Dew "on tap." I tried an almond chicken salad suggested by the waitress and I was not disappointed with the reco. If you are looking for "fine dining" we may want to look elsewhere - not sure of the availability in Owatonna, but it is great for lunch and a casual setting. The service is not speedy, but we were not in a hurry, so it was a non-issue! Give it a try!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Torreys was recommended by our hotel (they even provided a 10% off coupon.) The food was pretty good, but it really wasn't the place I would consider taking a twelve your old kid. It was more like a bar that served food.
