    What a find! More character than you can shake a stick at. Several great bars and restaurants overlooking the lake. Favorite room is the replica of an old english pub. Food was fantastic and the staff couldn't be nicer. We will be coming back many times!

    Our dinner, October 13, 2014, was in celebration of our wedding anniversary. It also was our first meal at Lord Fletcher's. We were both pleasantly surprised. We both had the walleye dinner and the wine recommendation by our waiter was an excellent one. The atmosphere was wonderful and although it was somewhat busy with all dinner guests in the bay view room that evening the room remained remarkable quiet. We joked about the fact that we think that everyone in the dining room ordered the walleye dinner that evening. We will return on future dates for additional dining and the next time will probably be for the Sunday brunch or with friends who have dined at Lord Fletcher's several times.

    Our party had dinner at Lord Fletcher's on October 10th, 2014. The atmosphere was superb. We had spent too many evenings just trying to hear what our tablemates were saying. The dining area was quiet and very enjoyable. Our server promply took care of all our needs. We didn't feel rushed and were able to enjoy a relaxing evening. I ordered the chicken marsala and couldn't have been more pleased. Two members of our party ordered the walleye and said it was excellent. We will definitely be back.

    While celebrating our daughter's engagement we chose Lord Fletcher's a our long time favorite. In fact we had our rehearsal dinner there 31 years ago! We found it as good as it was in the past. Tasty walleye, scallops and sea bass, good service and festive atmosphere on the screen porch overlooking the bay.

    We had a wonderful dinner Thursday evening. We were on the porch, in beautiful weather. The only negative was an obnoxious patron on the patio. Her cackling and shrieking could be heard for miles. The flip side is that she was clearly having a good time. Fortunately, for us, she left during our salad course.

    We took my parents to eat out to celebrate my dad's last night before heading home to the Philippines. We were seated near the window overlooking the bay and the outside seating area. We would have loved to eat outside but there were no room. Where we were placed by the window was an excellent substitute. My dad was in awe having a nice view while we dined. We all loved the food we ordered and the kids had a great time! The service was excellent and the atmosphere was so relaxing that the kids were so comfortable and did well. I would go back to eat there again. Excellent food and service for sure!

    For the second time recently we were terribly disappointed with Lord Fletcher's. The walleye dinner was as great as it consistently has been for years, but the rest of our food was very mediocre. The service was much too fast and pushy for a relaxed Saturday evening dinner, also quite indifferent to our needs/tastes. When I spoke with the manager, she was incredibly defensive and unhelpful...indicating that all of my complaints were MY fault. Customer service??

    I took my husband on a surprised sailing trip to Lake Minnetonka for his 40th birthday. We had dinner at Lord Fletcher's and my husband got the lobster tail and filet mignon. His meal was fabulous!! He graciously shared his meal with me b/c my walleye dish' which is a "Guest Favorite" according to the menu, was awful. I have had way better walleye at Usher's in Moorhead, MN and at DooLittle's in Fargo, ND. I was very disappointed and couldn't even eat it. It was mushy, not flaky. The waiter recommended ordering the pan seared walleye....I wish he recommended an entirely different entree. Our appetizer, ahi tuna was delicious as well so we only wasted $25 for my meal which is ok. I'm just glad the birthday boy was happy.

    The food tasted great, but it seemed overpriced for what it was. Annoying that you have to pay $2 for each side you want. Most notably, we had a pretty inattentive server, so we had to keep asking for what we needed. Meanwhile, the atmosphere was more casual than I expected, which was neither a good nor bad thing.

    All the other reviews are right: the walleye is perfection. Cocktails well made. Extraordinary mud pie. Preparations are not fussy but they are perfectly prepared. We ate in the quieter more formal dining room overlooking the lake. Classy, quiet. This place offers numerous kinds of places to eat, all kinds of private dining rooms, different kinds of bars. Dining on the deck is much more casual (burgers, etc) but raucous and fun.

    We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Lord Fletchers. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. We did not have to ask for anything, it was like she magically appeared, when needed. She explained the specials clearly. We tried the early catch dinners, they were perfect. She gave wonderful recommendations for wines with dinner. It was a great way to gear up for the weekend and recover after a stressful week. We'll be back.

    Food was great, my wife and I both had the Waleye dinner. A little expensive, but you pay for the view and ambience. The drinks were extremely disappointing - I ordered a mojito and it didn't have any fresh limes, sugar or mint in it, I even thought that perhaps the wrong drink was made. (The waiter was too young to know anything about drinks). If it was a mojito, it was made with a store bought mix. My wife ordered a martini. This was served in a tall skinny glass (not a martini glass) and tasted like a store bought mix as well. For the price they were charging them, I was a rip off - stick with the beer.

    We have visited Lord Fletcher's before for a special occasion brunch and had a great time. This time we met with close friends for Father's day. The service was very nice, the place is warm and comfortable. They had a variety of food but the main dishes tasted mostly acceptable. Both my husband and I thought it was better last time. We have a 1.5 year-old and I could not really find anything suitable for him. The chef undercooked his scrambled eggs, the pre-made eggs were over spiced with pepper and the fish did not taste good. We ended up giving him mostly fruits. I liked the chocolate fountain and the desserts were delicious. Overall we had a good time but we might try something else next year for Mother's day.

    Our choice to celebrate our 44th Wedding Anniversary on Lake Minnetonka in the "Up North" feel: Lord Fletchers! We both enjoy the window view of the docks and boats and the relaxed dining atmosphere. The best martini on the rocks in the Twin Cities area and the walleye is always great. We love the Early Catch menu and the well trained staff that are so friendly and efficient. We like the fact that Lord Fletcher's is always striving to provide the best experience for their diners from valet service to the servers!
