Work nearby and I have enjoyed Axel's for both work lunches and for date nights out. My favorite is the walleye and bull bites!

“Popovers!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

If you like popovers, golden brown and fresh from the oven, served with whipped maple butter, this is the place to be. We celebrated a friend's birthday on Saturday night and had a fantastic experience. All of our food was excellent, large portions, reasonably priced, and enjoyed by all. All four of us took home leftovers. My favorite is the coconut shrimp. I forgot to mention when making the reservation that we would be celebrating a birthday. I told our server at the end of our meal when I finally remembered. She was great, brought back a piece of wonderful chocolate cake with a candle and we finished our evening in style. She was excellent from the moment we arrived. It is a half our drive for us, but well worth it and we will visit again.

“Great food & attentive staff”

In MN for business so I asked a local where to eat and was not disappointed. Good scotch selection. I recommend the Bull Bites (ap) and Crab/Avocado/Cobb Salad.

“The Sunday/Monday dinner for two is great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

We first went the night before we got married, and now we go on any special occasions and anniversaries, mostly on Sunday and Monday nights. Their special dinner for two (those nights only) has been great each time. It includes an appetizer to share, salad, entree, a desert to share, and a bottle of wine - all for $56. We typically get the "beef bites" for an appetizer - very good. The salads come with a hot pop-over with maple butter. Entrees selections are reduced from full menu, but there's always something great for both of us - a small steak, etc. Always been very good and more than enough to eat. The deserts have been great, or by then you might want to take it home.
We've mostly gone in the summer so we can sit outside on the patio, although inside was nice. All of MN is smoke free which has really helped the dining experience inside.

We'll keep going for this special night as long as they'll have it! Recommend it completely.
