Diner Reviews
  • "We went for Saturday brunch with a group of 4 adults plus a toddler. We chose this place because of the menus and the food was delicious. Service could have been more attentive (drink refills) but was overall very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is very laid back and the outdoor patio is very big. Would go back again."

  • "The ambience and decor are fantastic. Our server was awesome. The food fell flat, however. My mom and grandma make way better food at home. The waffles were cold, the ribs were dry, the greens were barely seasoned. Only the brisket was worth eating. Had a fun night out with my girls, but not the place to go if you're hungry."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Had to pay $6 for parking. I realize you need to control unauthorized parkers, but the least you could do is give a credit back on the meal cost. Not enough menus for the table. Even got one for lunch when it was dinner time. I was told they ran out of menus yet it wasn't that busy. Is it poor management/poor planning? Inexperienced wait staff. Pleasant but immature in his service skills. Overall a rather discouraging first-time visit. Won't bother trying again."

  • "The food was good except the banana desserts were horrible. The banana pudding lacked flavor and the pie crust was rubbery and I only had four pieces of banana in the pie. The presentation of the banana foster pudding was beautiful until you looked at the bottom where the banana were grey. The server said was due to the bourbon. However, the peach cobbler was amazing. The chicken fried ribs were amazing as well as the fried green tomatoes.The rib platter was a good blue for the money and the ribs were huge as well as meaty. The chicken and waffles were good too. The duck meatloaf was good and the mashed potatoes were amazing. The best thing o. The menu were the chicken fried ribs with the sauce that accompanied it. We will go back soon!"

  • "Food was an epic fail. The dishes we ordered had ingredients that weren't listed on the menu and some of my group were allergic to the added ingredients. Anther dish was too damn spicy and not listed as a spicy dish on the menu. The server was super friendly and nice but the food wasn't worth the price we paid for. There were 10 of us and one third of the group had the right food. The rest of us struggled with added ingredients and allergic reactions. We spoke to the manager and he apologized and assured us he will update the menu. I would never recommend this restuarant as i have had terrible terrible experience."

  • "My friend and I went there for a Thursday Happy Hour (4-7pm). She had been there a week after it had opened and said the service was terrible and food was just "ok. This trip she was happy to see the service had greatly improved. We had an attentive and engaged server. The food was better (limited options) but good drink options. Sitting in the patio for happy hour was nice although the atmosphere at Boneyard is a bit bare-bones for me. They have valet parking, but not sure why, as on this Thursday there were several spots in the lot open (we left at 8:50pm). Seems like it might be a good late weekend place for the bar crowd....what do I know as I am watching Netflix on Saturday nights. Peace-out....oh ya that was so 2000 too. Sorry."

  • "Pulled pork was good, Brussels sprouts over cooked, biscuits great. Overall the plate presentation needs to be rethought. Biscuits should be served to all in some type of basket with different spreads. Small cast iron pot for beans and other small servings would be better. There is a lot if potential for this restuarant. Music on patio needs to be better, lights, plants or ambiance needs to be better."

  • "Sweet patio option for a larger group. Sat in comfy chairs that were placed in a circle so that we were able to socialize with everyone!"

  • "A great place! Went for lunch and food was terrific - salad fresh, duck meatloaf flavorful, the tomato jam a breath of fresh air, and the potatoes inspired. We will be back for brunch!"

  • "We went with friends from North Carolina and they thought the food was excellent!! They were able to make a true south comparison. Great drink menu too."

  • "I had the pleasure of dining at the Boneyard last Saturday morning for brunch. I had the fried chicken and waffles along with a side of the creamy grits! Everything was well prepared and flavorful. My daughter had the biscuit and gravy which was also excellent. All in all we had a great experience and enjoyed the energy of the establishment. They handled the Uptown Art Fair crowd with ease and even had their manager walking around to the different tables to check on their guests!"

  • "Unlike any other restaurant in the Twin Cities, Boneyard is like a breath of fresh air. Featuring interesting food, great drinks (try the Pink Cadillac margarita) and a vibrant outdoor patio, the restaurant is a great addition to the Uptown scene."

  • "We went for dinner, but ended up eating off the happy hour menu. The alcohol portion of the happy hour menu saved maybe one or two dollars but the food was a fun surprise."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "The meat was exceptionally great, we tried the pulled pork, brisket and ribs. The sides were good although nothing extremely fantastic. The cole slaw is spicy which I like but my husband did not. Beans were fantastic. We say outside which was a great area except for the couple chain smoking right behind us. The tables are a little too close together for that. Went for dinner (6:30) and there were many open tables although they were getting full by the time we left. Would love to go back to try their brunch menu. The servers were great and everyone else eating seemed to really be enjoying themselves."

  • "I went for a ladies lunch. Our drinks were very good, but the food was only so-so. I had the brisket sandwich. There was not much meat and the bun was too hard. I did not eat the bun but enjoyed what was not very much of the brisket."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Fun atmosphere, amazing menu selection, great drinks menu! Boneyard is a much less scary Hell's Kitchen, they love good food but don't take themselves too seriously. Reservation recommended."

  • "What a delightful menu--Southern Gothic, perfect for my friends with roots in Alabama and Tennessee."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great location, private free parking and I love the patio! I had the peach punch cocktail. It was a little sweet so I added soda water to it, then it was perfect. My husband had a watermelon cocktail which I thought was a little strong but he liked it. I had a watermelon salad which is HUGE, but delicious. I had also ordered an appetizer of fried mac and cheese bites. I did not need those. They also have a kids menu. We'll definitely return here."

  • "We are from Chicago, and wanted to grab a bite to eat become before we made the drive back. All I can say...best decision ever. Everything about the place was great. Great environment, great staff, amazing food. Hands down chicken and waffles with the siracha maple syrup. If we make it back to Minneapolis, we are coming back for sure."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The southern specialities are outstanding! I highly recommend the Pastor's Plate, with out-of-this-world pimento cheese! The ham biscuits are just perfect and the sweet tea is a must. Seriously - you can't go wrong here, ya'll."

  • "We had such a fabulous time at Boneyard. Our niece was in town from SF and we thought we'd try a new restaurant. So pleasantly surprised. The attention by the wait staff and special attention by the chef Jason. I'm so glad he recommended the bacon wrapped duck meatloaf.....wonderful. The green fried tomatoes were awesome as well as the special vegetarian dish Jason made up for my niece who's a vegetarian. Try the waffles and fried chicken great plus the greens were so good. Does remind of dishes I've had in the south. We will be back for sure. And eat outside so nic."

  • "Tried it for the first time and liked the atmosphere. We sat outside, but the inside looked inviting, too. We shared the three-meat platter which was plenty for two people (unless you're a really big eater!). Tasty."

  • "Held a group happy hour there. 'Though not as many people showed up as had pledged (weather outside was delightful and distractions were aplenty), we were still seated and served and attended to with enthusiasm. The inside of the place is different than you might expect from the outside, but in a good way; the name and graffiti-like exterior led me to expect a bit more edge, and the interior and personality is a lot more comfortable. The food is delicious, the service very friendly and prompt. Everything's got a little kick to it, or a little twist. We ended up not trying the chicken and waffles, but that just gives another reason to return."

  • "Moving to Minnesota from the south, I was excited to try Boneyard - southern cuisine seems to be lacking in the area. Unfortunately I was very disappointed with the food I had during their brunch. It seemed like they were trying very hard to come up with unique and interesting twists on some traditional southern dishes, but they didn't have the original dishes well-tuned yet. The fried chicken and waffles were not good, and the chicken was more like simple chicken strips from any old chain, rather than good quality fried chicken. The steak and eggs were also pretty disappointing...the steak had a bitter after taste I don't think it should have. Fried green tomatoes, which I normally love, soggy and a disappointment."

  • "The service was excellent and I felt that I was well attended to; and my needs met. The southern flavor to the menu was excellent and right on. Plan to go back and try the grits. Hard to find good grits in the twin cities. Food was excellent and great portions."

  • "After recently returning from GA, where our son attends college, and being from the south myself, our group knows the style of food offered on the Boneyard menu, so expectations were high. Unfortunately, out of five diners in our party, no one left completely happy. There were two orders of chicken and waffles, which were good, but there was no syrup, the staff brought one person gravy, but the second order had no gravy. As for the other orders, there was a rock hard poached egg on one of the benedicts; the biscuits for another diner were inedible; and creamy grits were topped with a gross curry oil. A final negative was the inconsistent wait service. On the upside, the killer cornbread was YUM. The chicken was incredible."

  • "Excellent food and service. The ribs, side (coleslaw, beans) bbq sauces were great! We had the layered cake for dessert - it was excellent. They have valet parking which is an added benefit. Our server did a great job too. Can't wait to go back again!"
