We thought the Lobster Mac & Cheese was to be good. Well, our hungry nephew could not eat all of it, he actually left some of the Lobster chunks. It did not impress him. The other 3 meals werre just average. Too much bun, not much meat. Price was a little high for the amount served. The Loop is more of a high priced bar, that serves food, as a side line.

Quinoa appetizer was great and the salad with dried cherries was average. Lobster macaroni and cheese was horrible. Imagine fishy tasty lobster lathered with cheese whiz over pasta that was inferior in quality to Noodles and Company. Swanky environment with multiple televisions was nice but I won't be thrown for a loop again.

The Loop Bar and Restaurant in Rochester, Minnesota is similar to Chesters Kitchen and Bar except it is much larger and cavernous. The wait for a table on the Friday night we ate there was about 45 minutes to 1 hour, I believe we also arrived there during the peak time. It seemed during the peak time that even those who were already seated - their food took some time to arrive. Nonetheless good place - seems like the whole town congregates here. Decently priced food, and beers on tap. We had the Grilled Salmon and the Jerk Chicken. The grilled salmon got a good rating while the Jerk Chicken, even though it was nothing near to what I associated with Jerk Chicken in terms of the level of spice and jerk seasoning, was also highly edible. Because of the cavernous feel it was at times a little loud but all in all a fairly good experience. Once we sat down the food came quickly since the number of people had decreased. No good place to wait for a seat - even the bar area was completely full when we came in.
