“Not Like It Used to Be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Having dined at this restaurant many years ago, we decided to give it a try when a family member came to town. Unfortunately, it's changed greatly. The popovers that used to come with dinner, now cost $3 each, and are soggy rather than crispy. Two of us tried the turkey pot pie - crust was also soggy, and vegetables appeared to be canned. The other diner was also disappointed in his non-crusty walleye (advertised with a horseradish crust). The only bright spot was attentive service. However, when we pointed out that the popover didn't come with maple butter as advertised, the waiter had no response.

“Expensive for breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We ate breakfast here on our first morning in Minneapolis but did not think it was worth the $64 for what we got: 4 x weak but very over sweet hot chocolates, two poached eggs on toast, two poached eggs on muffins, french toast with baked apples, pancakes with egg and bacon. It was okay apart from the poached eggs being served in little bowls sitting in water residue instead of the slotted spoon being placed on kitchen roll to absorb the water thus preventing wet eggs on the toast! We did not return for the remainder of our stay as it was not worth the money.

“Hungrey!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

They need to look at the hours they are open.
After long days in meeting to return to the hotel with nothing open at 10.00pm is rather disappointing.
