My wife had the cod and I had the Harvest Chicken "selection" (not on the regular menu). Food was excellent and large portions. Reasonable prices. Full bar. Everyone enjoys Bunnie's coconut cake, and the size is huge. Good service. Overall, liked by locals and visitors alike (across from the Clinic Hospital.

Had an early dinner here and ordered the senior dinners of Walleye - mine almond encrusted and my wife's was grilled with butter. She paid $1 extra to get asparagus instead of potatoes. Good service. Excellent food.

We had seen this restaurant on tv and gave it a try. Very glad we did. Food was very tasty at a decent price. Our service was excellent. There was a singer in the bar that night that was very enjoyable to listen to. Highly recommend this place.

Great restaurant Had a soup and sandwich which was excellent, Corn beef grilled on Rye bread with Clam Chowder Soup. THe service was great. They do sell cocktails but there is no bar. The restaurant is also family friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We were in Rochester to go to Mayo Clinic at St. Mary's. We ate lunch and dinner each day we were in Rochester at the Honker. Chicken salad and wraps are great. Deserts must be tried. Salmon dinner great taste and at a fair price. Service staff were all excellent

We have family and friends that we get together with at the Canadian Honker 3 Sundays out of every month. The food is great, the wait staff are friendly and professional, the cooks are fantastic, and the Manager/Assistant Manger are really great people.

We ate here while visiting the Mayo Clinic. I had the fish sandwich which was excellent. My husband selected the chicken strips which are freshly breaded and exceptional. Because the coconut cake got such great reviews, we tried it but were disappointed. It was good but not our favorite thing. The staff was very friendly and it was a great... More
