“The Best Local Chain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is by far the best local chain restaurant in MN. The food is homecooked goodness. The portions are huge. The hot turkey dinner is exceptional. The Wild Rice omelet is also a winner. It doesn't matter which restaurant you dine at, they are all awesome. Don't get me started on the bakery!!!

Just like mom used to make. Great hot beef sandwich with lots of gravy and mashed potatoes. Service was also great.

“Feast for the eyes and the palate!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

My son and I met here for dinner and were very happy with our experience. The wait staff was very friendly and gave great service. My son ordered the Roast Beef Dinner and was unable to eat it all due to the large portion. I ordered the Strawberry and Spinach Salad with grilled chicken. It came so artfully arranged I had to take a picture. The candied pecans gave it an extra special touch. Afterwards we ordered some of their cupcakes to bring to my niece's house. The cake was moist and the chocolate butter cream frosting was scrumptious! Whether you come here from breakfast, lunch or dinner you won't be disappointed!

“One of our long-time favorites! Good homestyle cooking & large portions.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

We love Keys! They make everything fresh. Their baked goods are great, we especially love the scones and the homemade multi-grain bread with their own jam. The portions are big and the prices are fair. We haven't been there since the remodel, but look forward to seeing the changes soon!

“great place. esp breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

great atmosphere, local, service, prices. best breakfast around and bakery items. Each Keys is different so you should try more than one. I like the Roseville one and also the one downtown Mpls.
