Diner Reviews
  • "Lord Fletcher's is a great place to eat while enjoying a wonderful view of Lake Minnetonka. Food is good."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We visited Lord Fletcher's more than once for our Anniversary celebration and we came back again this year. We love the atmosphere, especially the screened porch. The view of the lake was marvelous, especially at sunset. The food and service were also wonderful. We will definitely return again to Lord Fletcher's."

  • "The walleye is ALWAYS EXCELLENT! It's the only place I will order walleye! Love the screened in porch!"

  • "As usual, competent unobtrusive service complementing the consistently prepared food."

  • "Took my wife here for her birthday. The food was great and it was fun watching the boats come in. Will definitely be back soon!"

  • "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!"

  • "I'm glad we celebrated our wedding anniversary at Lord Fletcher."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I love the outdoor dining atmosphere at Lord Fletchers. It's a great neighborhood spot and so well known in the Twin Cities that everyone knows where it is. The food is very good, but not fantastic. But overall, a very positive experience."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I was in from Chicago on business and friends took me here for a local experience... Had a wonderful evening watching the boats come and go & food was delish!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Lord Fletcher's is rapidly becoming my go to Sunday Brunch treat. We took our two adult kids there, and they enjoyed it immensely. Though it is hard to get into in the summer because of the high demand, we will return again."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Food was good, not great. Great view, looking over the lake. Boat friendly."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Best place to be in the summer with it's patio and picturesque views. We sat in the screened in porch and loved watching the sun set. The pan fried walleye was delicious, cooked perfectly. The Mud Pie dessert was scrumptious! Can't wait to go back. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "While some restaurants around Lake Minnetonka rest on their views and docks, Lord Fletcher's does a bit better. For years I've been going to Maynard's for lake view lunches and brunches, but recently have been going to Lord Fletcher's. While Maynards seems to becoming more mediocre, Lord Fletcher's has been getting better. In particular the brunch is quite good. Excellent selection, and well prepared with very good service and a quieter more relaxed ambiance than Maynards. The desert pastries are well beyond anything at any other around the Lake Sunday brunch. "
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "But, we do miss the older staff that has been their for 20 years or so. Oh well, hopefully we all get to retire!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We are Fletcher's regulars, especially in the summer when we can sit in the screened porch area. Over the past two years they have changed the menu a bit. This season's menu provides for two sides with the walleye entree; however seemed odd to us that both were carbohydrates-au gratin potatoes and rice. To get a vegetable, one has to pay extra. While not a big deal, we were surprised that we weren't offered the pre-6pm special menu even though we were seated prior to six and placed our order at 6:04pm. While the restaurant had no obligation to provide it, it seemed odd they wouldn't given we are regulars and were just minutes late. One more thing...yes, the walleye was great as usual!"

  • "Arrived a little early. The restaurant was very busy with Mother's Day the next day. However, the staff was superb and our server was terrific. She is one of those servers who is always there but never in the way. Our party of four lacked for nothing. The food was beyond spectacular, we guys had the striploin and wives had walleye. The walleye there is the best on the planet. However, if you go for nothing else, go for the bread. Desert was out of this world but, if you go for nothing else, go for the bread. crusty, tasty and warm. Dining at Lord Fletcher's is always a special experience. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Great food as always. The only thing that always lacks is the service. It would be nice if the waitress or waiter would come around more and observe if anyone at the table needed anything. Also subing a starch for a veg will cost you. Weird"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Staff is very professional, food is excellent, particularly the pan fried walleye which is the best in Minnesota, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Their steaks are also delicious."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "By far Fletcher's has the best brunch in the Twin Cities. There is a huge and varied amount of food to choose from--cold (half dozen salads, cheese tray, assorted veggies, cold shrimp and cocktail sauce , salmon, olives, fruits, etc), warm (eggs Benedict, walleye, hash browns, sausage, bacon, French toast, stir fry, pasta, carved prime rib, omelet station, 2 soups, waffle station), breads and cookies and bars and cakes and pies and a chocolate fountain with food to dip. Service is friendly and prompt. My only complaint is that while OJ and a mimosa are included in the (expensive) price, coffee isn't. Come on! How cheap is coffee and you know, many people want it!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Excellent food selections and quality with great service. We will be back again."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "It's great eating inside in the cool days. Fireplace, nice "porch" atmosphere. The summer brings out all the boats. The casual food served outside in the summer could be a little more imaginative. But it's great overall."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I love to go to the Sunday Brunch. I find the food choices interesting, tasteful and divergent. My husband thinks it odd that Brunch offers only Eggs Benedict or an omelet, but I so enjoy the other offerings that I don't care about that. The prime rib is delicious, and paired with the mashed potatoes and veggies, well, let's just say it's hard to not go back for more. Beyond the food, I love the views from the porch. While we dine, have watched an eagle and fishermen, as well as a pond hockey game."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Great brunch and good value for money. Can really recommend it."

  • "We celebrated my 69th birthday on 3/9, and the brunch was great. Our server was very friendly and efficient, making stops for coffee, water, etc."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We came for brunch and were there a little over one hour. Hash browns were out both times we went up, as well as, smoked salmon. Staff said they'd put more out but we did not see any smoke salmon in that hour we were there; hash browns came and went once. Bacon was rubbery and sausage was very greasy and tasteless. Wild Rice soup tasted like biscuits and gravy versus wild rice. Eggs benedict were dry (needed more sauce). The fish cakes tasted like a microwaved item. Desserts were good but only one of us ate them. It's very dark where food is displayed. Waitress did not let us know if drinks were included in cost of brunch or if seniors and kids were less expensive. Disappointed in the food. Not worth the money. Wouldn't come bak for brunch."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We had an early dinner here (5:30) on a Saturday night and were able to sit by the fire. The bread and butter came right away -- crispy outside crust, warm inside, salted butter, great flavor -- and we ordered a glass of wine. The waitress understood that we wanted to sip on our wine for a while before ordering dinner and left us alone. The menu was somewhat limited - steak or fish with a few pasta dishes - but enough to choose from. I had had the Walleye on a previous visit, and found it not very flavorful and somewhat fishy. So, I chose the New York strip and my husband had the fillet - both delicious. For sides we had the fresh veggie medley and split an order of au gratin potatoes, which I would highly recommend."

  • "Nice setting with great variety of food for brunch. All delicious!"

  • "Loved celebrating my birthday at a Lake Minnetonka treasure. Many were kept away on the icy night . . . but instead, we braved the weather and went anyway. We had lovely seating and watched broomball in the crisp winter night. Lovely evening, delicious food, great service, warm atmosphere."

  • "Brought family for brunch and we had a good time. Can recommend it."

  • "I recommend ordering the filet. It was prepared perfectly! The atmosphere is very warm and friendly . The service was good but a little slow. A great place to go for a romantic dinner."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Ambiance and service were great, but the walleye and salmon left something to be desired. For $30/plate I would expect something a little more flavorful."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Valentine's day also happens to be our anniversary. We really like Lord Fletcher's because they don't over burden their special occasion menu with menu items that need to justify their high prices with overly creative entrees. My wife had their famous walleye and I had a great NY Strip. The menu was ala carte but sides were only $2.00. Seating was timely, our server was super and the bus help was attentive. Would highly recommend for special occasions but dining room, deck, dock and bar are all worth the trip."

  • "A reliable classy restaurant with dependable fare, great wine list, and a nice ambience."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We always reserve a table next to the windows for the beauty of Lake Minnetonka . From the friendly hostesses to the professional servers we always feel welcomed and appreciated. We like the Early Bird Catch because of its good value. My Martini was perfect! My husband enjoyed his Walleye, but the salads were tired this evening. My steak was a little tough and tasteless, not like the delicious ones in the past. The usually tasty Au gratin potatoes seemed a little runny but the vegetable medley was crisp and good. A complimentary slice of the Mud Pie( with a lighted candle) for the birthday boy was a pleasant surprise and we enjoyed sharing it. Thank you so much! We will return but hope that the food is up to its normal standards."

  • "Very disappointed in out dinner. Was recommended to try Lord Fletcher's to take my parent's out for their birthday. Started out with both my mom and I getting the wrong drinks, salad considerably overpriced, and then got charged to share it with my husband, really? 2 out of 4 steaks were not cooked to order, potato was obviously reheated and the server was average. When a person spends $300 I expect they should know when to come back and take your order(not when you're still looking at your menu) and they had better know who's food is who's...they had know idea what went where when bringing our food out. I'm sick that we spent that much money and had such a horrible experience/food. We should have just went to the Wharf!"

  • "Food is always really good. It is a gem. Romantic, or fun! Love the room by the lake with the windows upstairs. Quiet, calm and great service. Nice to be by the lake!"
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Beautiful restaurant with traditional decor. Most tables have some view of fireplace and/or lake. Waitress was attentive. Ala carte, so cost can add up fast. They do, however, have well-priced early bird specials. My son was completely happy with his meal, 14 oz sirloin steak and broccoli, well seasoned. My walleye fillet was nice but the side dishes were disappointing. Creamed spinach was leaf spinach cooked in cream, soupy. If seasoned, the seasoning was too subtle for me. I am used to a thicker consistency with a hint of nutmeg. Parmesan, dill mashers were over mashed (that smooth, gluey texture) and dill too light. Beer choice was lacking, no dark beer among selections. Odd for winter in Minnesota."
