“Good food downtown”
Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Keys always has good food and this was my first time at the downtown location at the Fochey tower. The burger was very tasty and the order of mushrooms on it was plentiful. I would recommend the seasoned wedge fries since they had very good flavor.

The cost of $17 was a bit high but not by "downtown" standards. My only wish was to have more room so I could have tried the delicious looking banana cream pie for desert.

With love from MN

“Fun and busy, Good food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My kids and I ate here on a busy Saturday morning. We got a table right away, and thought we were lucky.

The place had a happy buzz and business about it. The wait staff took it all in stride, and were happy to help with any special requests.

The food was plentiful, but a bit pricey. I think you pay a bit more for an historic and convenient location.

“The best way to start a day”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

114 So. 9th Street | Minneapolis, MN 55402

You go in empty and come out full, sometimes too full. But that isn't the restaurants fault. I didn't have to eat all of it. Whatever I have ordered was great and I have been eating there at least once a year for quite a long time. Get there early or expect a very long line and wait.

“Great service and awesome comfort food”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Walk in the door and you are greeted right away. The food is great, but portions are huge, so come prepared to share or be very hungry. It has a great atmosphere so get there early on Friday nights.
