I could not believe the turkey club. I think the bread was homemade as well as real roasted turkey. Friendly people. There was no room for desert but cannot wait to try that soon 😊❤️‼️

Always has amazing food. I have been eating at Keys restaurant and bakery for over 20 years. I've ordered caramel rolls for many years in the downtown st. Paul location but the one in Forest Lake is equally as good. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want good solid food

We were visiting friends in forest lake and they suggest we go to Keys for supper. Its a little hard to find but they knew where it was so inside we went. It was an early supper so wasnt busy at all (5:00) They had a very simple menu but amazingly seemed to cover alot of different tastes and breakfast... More

The food was nothing special but the service was good. I had the turkey dinner and the portion was huge.

We went there for lunch as we were told this was a great place to eat. The food was mediocre; nothing spectacular as we were told. The prices were super high for lunch and since the food was only so so I was not pleased with the prices. It's priced too high and not exactly chef prepared meals. We bought... More

Ate here with my family. While our waitress was very friendly, the service was very slowly. The food was average at best. I do however LOVE keys house cake and always order one for birthdays. I would return for the cake, but will not be returning for the food.

Pancakes as big as Pizza's, omelets and breakfast sandwiches that make your mouth water, and a French Dip that I think became the favorite dish ordered. 4 of us shared a variety of meals, but 3 of the 4 picked the French Dip as the favorite.

I eat often at my local Keys. I've tried this one when I've been in the area. Same menu, same great food, friendly service. Unless you have a very hearty appetite the open face hot sandwiches will provide enough for tomorrow's lunch. All the soups I've tried have been very good. My favorite breakfast is Italian Hash, and that, too... More

We were meeting friends who live in Woodbury. Keys was an excellent choice. They had everything from gigantic rolls to many omelette choices, French toast, huge pancakes or hash browns and eggs. By the crowd waiting you could tell it was popular

Thank rideum
