“Great Food! Great Service!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

My wife and I visited Axel's Friday evening. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Our server, Erin,was with us almost immediately, with water and information on the evening's specials. I ordered the ribeye with bernaise sauce on the side, and my wife ordered bacon wrapped scallops with orange hoeseradish sauce. My steak was cooked perfectly to medium rare and was almost fork tender. My wife's scallops were tender and moist. Axel's serves a green bean vegatable garnish with entrees that is wonderful. They are blanched in hot oil and then tossed with a honey teriyaki sauce. Excellent! They also serve great popovers, salad & a side, included with your entree. This place has become a favorite of mine. Service is excellent, the food is great and the prices reasonable for this type of Restaurant.

“Quiet place off the beaten path”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

This location is in the heart of Chanhassen and not near the lakes. It's a nice place to go for a quick glass of wine or quiet dinner.

“Good food - good service”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Four of us had dinner before theater. I have seen some negative comments on pricing, but we were pleased that the price of entrees included salad, delicious popovers, and a side - so many restaurants are pricing all of those items ala carte. For a full complete meal, the oprice was reasonable. The scallops were delicious and cooked perfectly. My sister-in-law had the walleye sandwich (hold the bread) and it was a very large piece of grilled walleye. My husband really enjoyed the clam chowder and the chicken alfredo. We'll be back. Decent prices on good wines by the glass.
