“Wasn't Disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We have eaten here three times. We visited Mayo Clinic in August and had our first meal, then visited Mayo again in October and had the second two. We were never disappointed. Their Parmesean Crusted Walleye is excellent, and a very generous portion. I switched the rice pilaf for more vegetables, and the green beans were crisp and fresh. We shared the banana cream pie one night for dessert; I know it one of Chester's specialties, but it was not my favorite. It basically is some graham cracker crumbs on the bottom of the plate, with A LOT of banana cream pudding and whipped cream on top. It was very rich and needed a proper crust to cut the sweetness to qualify in my book as a "pie" The bread pudding, however, was excellent. Service all three times was attentive, quick and very friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in the Mayo Clinic area.

“Very busy - so service was so so”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

But the food was quite good, and the menu is quite interesting. This is a hopping place - we were there at 5 :45 pm and had a bit of a wait to get served once we were seated, even though we indicated that we were in a hurry.

“Noisy but Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Eat here often. Good Food. Good Service, but loud! It's a "meat market" for young people trying to find a mate or date!

Stopped in for an excellent lunch and hubby ended up getting a bannana cream pie slice for dessert. Oh wait! It was more like a whole pie. Was huge!
