The food was good but the friendly service and great atmosphere are certainly the highlight. We were there for a few meals because of the proximity to St. Mary's Hospital and each one was good. When our time was limited we let them know and they got our food and check out so quickly and with a smile. Would recommend... More

The Canadian Honker has consistently good food, a casual atmosphere, and is very convenient to St. Mary's Hospital. They also have a bar, if you want a drink or a glass of wine. Their catering service is awesome, as well.

Ate 4 meals here in a week and all were great. Everything tasted homemade (and great!) and it was so affordable.

When you see Canadian Honker Restaurant from the street, it's hard to figure out just what "level" of restaurant this is. When you walk in, it's still a bit hard. Has a very casual feel; restaurant seating on one side, bar seating on the other. The difference seems to be the lighting level...Anyway, we thought the food was excellent. My... More

What a nice place! The all of the staff was friendly and efficient. The restaurant is a very nice place. Comfortable and clean. The menu selection is very good, with quite a bit of variety but not overwhelmingly large like some. We were there for supper, around 8:00 p.m. on a Thursday evening. It was fairly busy but we were... More

My son and his girlfriend who have lived here for 6 months recommended this place. TripAdvisor reviews called it one of the best. There was no wait for a 6 p.m. walk-in on a Tuesday in January. The server was prompt friendly and attentive. My wife and I both thought the walleye sandwiches were very good.

Breakfast: Eggs Benedict and hash browns. Very good. Ordered the hash browns well done and they were perfect. Eggs, muffinc, canadian bacon and hollandaise were very good. Service was really attentive. Would recommend!

We were in Rochester for a Mayo Clinic visit. We stayed near this restaurant. We had lunch and a dinner. They have a great kids menu at a reasonable cost. Adult meals were very good as well. They had daily specials and In the winter offered seasonal lattes.
