Description: A Minneapolis tradition was born on October 2, 1947, when the Oak Grill opened for business. Architect Bob Hansen used characteristics from the Jacobean period in the design of the rooms. The ornate fireplace, originally from Salisbury, England, was over 300 years old when it was transported in sections and reassembled in the Oak Grill. With its solid oak columns and vast frame, it soon became the room's focal point. Its distinctive appearance, along with dark paneling, red chairs and dim lighting, help give the Oak Grill its cozy ambiance.

“Wonderful salad bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

This upscale but very reasonable deli style at Macy's is a super place for a quick lunch while on a power shopping trip. Fast service and fresh fruit, vegetables, cheeses, breads, soups and everything. Nice to be able to eat and run.

“Good shopping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Macy's is right next to the Marriott Hotel. The deals that we found were great. I think it was a sale weekend. Good deals

“Always the best salad bar in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

I have been eating here for many years. Their selection of food options has changed in this food court area, but the options are always very good. The salad bar is one I look forward to. Everything is fresh and very good. The atmosphere is beautiful as well, overlooking the city with a piano player. One of my favorites in Minneapolis.

“Stopped here for lunch at the food court”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

We were trying to find a easy lunch for all four of us and this was recommended by one of the downtown information officers. We stopped at the foodcourt and since it was Sunday not alot of choices and what they had were so so. The kids had Chinese and Pizza that were just OK. My husband and I skipped lunch, I actually had Starbucks iced coffee instead. We wished we had remembered they also said they had a sit down restaurant the store that may have been a better choice. I would not bother eating here again.

“Great lunch and service on the top floor of Macy's in Downtown Minneapolis.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Our hotel staff recommended this for lunch on a Friday afternoon. We had wonderful salads and split a dessert (berry crumble- yum!) in an elegant surrounding. Our waitress was super-attentive.
