Have eaten here multiple times. Typical cafe food with a Minnesota twist. Expansive menu, lots of choices. Last two times we ate there, service was slow, and the waitress seemed to be not interested in being polite. She may of been over worked, but we came after lunch rush so it was quieter, and she seemed at her wits end.... More

I had the freshwater Canadian walleye fish entrée. You can have it cooked five different ways. For dessert I had their hot fudge sundae. The food was delicious and it was a great experience. My friend went the next night and had the same thing I had but for dessert ordered the coconut cake. She also thought it was absolutely... More

Ate here during a trip to the Mayo Clinic. The food was excellent and our server was very attentive. Definitely get a piece of Bunny's famous coconut cake for dessert -- it was INCREDIBLY good!

We went for the Friday evening special All You Can Eat Walleye and Shrimp. Arrived between 430-500p and got right in. Both of us had the Au-Gratin potatoes as the side. Dinner also came with soup or salad. I love Clam Chowder, and unless my memory has failed me somewhere along the way...THIS was the BEST Clam Chowder I have... More

I have had both breakfast and lunch at the Canadian Honker. Wow! Portions are huge and the food is delicious. The service was excellent! The location is directly across from St. Mary's Hospital- couldn't be more convenient for patients and family spending time at the Mayo Clinic.

At the Mayo Clinic for the week of Oct. 17. Have been trying different restaurants while in town. This is a top notch place to have dinner. Was seated quickly and the place filled up quickly for the early evening dinner crowd. Fast service. Great food and plenty of it. Try a dessert but, as a couple, you may want... More

While spending a week at the Mayo Clinic for my tween daughter's appointments, we decided to visit Canadian Honker. Actually, we ended up eating there on three different occasions! Hands down, the beef tips (in wine demi glace and served with green beans + potatoes) was my favorite dish. It was a perfect portion size, the beef was flavorful and... More

We had great service, friendly and assertive. The atmosphere was somewhat average. The appetizer was cheese curds. They were hot and tasty. For dinner we ordered the Smoked Gouda Burger and Blue Cheese Burger. Both of them were cooked to perfection and full of the flavors we ordered. We left Canadian Honker Restaurant satisfied.

I had the rib eye steak sandwich. The steak was tender and delicious! My friend had the stir fry lunch special. Also good. Friendly and fast service.
