A word from Macy's - The Oak Grill
A Minneapolis tradition was born on October 2, 1947, when the Oak Grill opened for business. Architect Bob Hansen used characteristics from the Jacobean period in the design of the rooms. The ornate fireplace, originally from Salisbury, England, was over 300 years old when it was transported in sections and reassembled in the Oak Grill. With its solid oak columns and vast frame, it soon became the room's focal point. Its distinctive appearance, along with dark paneling, red chairs and dim lighting, help give the Oak Grill its cozy ambiance.

    Oh my word, was even better than what I expected. My parents, first visit and they continue to tell everyone how wonderful, relaxing special they felt. Went for his birthday and they also surprised him with a dessert that was truely unexpexted and really put it over the top for them both. Thank you so much for making it a special time for all of us

    Service was fine and lunch items were good. Reservation was during busy Macy's Flower show. Many elderly guests standing in the hall waiting for a table- overheard more than an hour wait. Many tables were open on inside. Seemed to be maybe short-staffed.

    11 of us went for lunch. Nice to see a menu with numerous healthy selections. Very little fried food if any. Everyone ordered something different and all were excellant. Would go back in a heartbeat. The tab was $175.00 which included a few drinks excluding tip. Excellant waiter.

  • Had the daily Irish special
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/17/2011
    Had the daily Irish special and the meat was cold and tough. Popovers are a great start at Oak Grill, but the waitress was inattentive until she served them. May seeem that since we were older women that lunch "hour" timing was not essential as not everyone seemed to have deferred service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/14/2011
    I had a coupon from a Christmas visit to the Oak Grill, which was my first time there. I decided that it would be perfect for a Valentine's dinner with my husband--and it was. The food was excellent. My entree was the salmon, which was top-notch, and my husband loved the walleye as well. The ambience was lovely--old-fashioned in the best sense of the word. Our waitperson was friendly, helpful and brought the food in good time. I'll be recommending the Oak Grill to my friends.

    I hadn't been there for years and years since my Grandma worked there. It was quiet elegance in the middle of a shopping day. What a great break, and I will be Back! (ps, everyone told me it was really expensive, but if you aren't drinking at lunch, it's right in there with anywhere downtown.

    Dined on 1/14/2011
    I have loved this place since I was a child and Dayton's was in it's heyday. My sister and I, now in our late 50's went to the Oak Grill for my birthday and it was still the nostalgically lovely place it has always been - heavy dark wood, classy atmosphere, and yummy food. I had the almond crusted walleye which was superb and of course the popovers are yummy!

    The softball size popover was out of this world. The butternut squash ravioli was good but the chocolate cake was fair.
