“Good Food”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Ate here twice during our stay in Rochester. Food is good and service is fast and friendly. Located across from St. Mary's Hospital and next to the Fiksdahl hotel. Convenient for a quick bite to eat.

“Good food selection, moderate price and fast, attentive service”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is a popular restaurant for the St. Mary's hospital visitors, but we just stopped there for the 2nd time on a vacation trip. It was busy already at 11:45, but we were seated right away. The two men both had The Canadian Honker melt which came with a choice of sides. The sandwich and the wild rice soup (a 50 cent substitution charge) side that I had were both large and delicious. The ladies split a turkey wrap that came with a pile of fries and said it was great and also just the right amount for the two of them. The bill for all four with 2 beverages was under $40. I believe that our waitresses name was Barb. Experienced, efficient and very personable. This is a casual restaurant, not upscale, but really nice atmosphere. We most definitely would recommend and return if we have an opportunity.

“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

The first time we went to Rochester in the early 1990's we tried the Honker because of its name. We've been going back ever since because of the food. We hadn't been to Rochester in several years, but when we did go we made sure we ate here. It's usually crowded, especially on Friday nights (fish fry night!). Hubby had the liver and onions and loved that (no comment from me!). One friend was very happy with her chicken strips. Another friend and I had the fried walleye sandwich. It was huge and very tasty. Service was great. Parking is available in nearby lots. It's located across the street from St. Mary's Hospital and is within walking distance of the rest of the Mayo complex. Prices are reasonable and breakfast is very good as well.

“Really Good”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Ate their twice during stay in Rochester. Walleye was good and Chicken Alfredo was good. The best was the second time we ate at the bar and had nachos. They were really good. Would definitely order those again. Very conveniently located across from St. Mary's Hospital. I noticed they did a lot of take-out business also.
