“Great business dinner; don't know the cost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Had a business dinner with about 20+ people at Kips. Service was outstanding, with the waitress seemingly always present to ask if we were OK. Group appetizers were ordered, which were quite tasty. Good selection of beers at this Irish pub; I went with Smithwicks. I ordered the walleye, since we don't get that back home, and it was fantastic. Served in a buttery sauce, with rice and roasted vegetables, I ate every scrap. My only regret is that the dinner ended before dessert and coffee. Don't know the cost, as it was on the company, but the food and beer were great.

“Excellent and Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I have been going to Kip's for several months now, so this review is well overdue. I have always been very impressed by the courteous, friendly, and welcoming staff at Kip's. Everyone seems to truly enjoy working there and it shows through their effort. I generally sit at the bar, so I have come to know Adam, Jessie, Chad, Kevin, and Liz very well. It is great having such a fun, relaxing neighborhood restaurant/bar to come to!

“Omelettes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I went to Kips on Saturday with my two sons for their breakfast buffet. We walked in and waited a few minutes before being greeted. Our server was very friendly and fast. The buffet was excellent, many options from a beautiful fruit platter to freshly made eggs. The made to order omelettes are amazing! Definitely worth the visit in it self. The chef making the omelettes uses two pans and makes a beautiful perfectly cooked egg. I had three different omelettes all of which were excellent! My son wanted pancakes but they only had waffles, the omelette chef overheard us and asked if we would like some pancakes and went to the back and whipped some up for us asap. I will definitely be returning to Kips in the future!

“The Best Tomato Soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

On business and staying at the Marriott. Kips was one of the better moderately priced restaurants I've found in a hotel. Staff was friendly and service was good. But the tomato soup was outstanding. And when in an Irish Pub and in MN, you have to try the walleye ruben.
