Crooners Lounge and Supper Club
The food was great and we are coming back to eat and enjoy a show.
Crooners were out of mint for wife’s Mojito, so she couldn’t have one. The bottle of water was room temperature tap water. Wife’s French fries were cold, my pot roast good, but the vegetables were in the gravey and the gravey was only warm.
Nice atmosphere, service was slow at first but picked up quickly after our wine and salads came, really a fun place!!!!
Amazing experience! Loved the show!!
Very good; we’ll be back.
It's great to have a non-chain restaurant in the area and it even offers entertainment.
My primary reason for going to Crooners was Bruce A. Henry vocalist extarordinaire he is a master of blues and jazz. Wonderful cozy atmosphere, tasty food!
What a perfect place for a special family celebration. Not too noisy, great food, a lovely check-in by the owner and great care taken by all staff. We’re looking forward to our next visit!
Server was a bit too snarky for my liking but other staff was friendly and food was very good.
The meal was delicious and service good for a busy evening.
My only other comment was the wine pour was very minimal.
I had the salmon and it was fantastic! My partner had the prime rib - he said it was good, not great.
Had dinner in the dining room (there were shows going on in the other 2 rooms). Great food - their pot roast, bacon burger, and pomodoro were awesome. If you come around 530/6 on a show night the bar is backlogged and drinks take 15minutes even for dining fyi.
We had A wonderful time!!
The food was fantastic!!
The service was also very good, and with A smile!!
The entertainment was a great way to end a lovely evening!!
We started with the host not being able to find our reservation for 3 and when she did, she seated us at a table for 2 so we were moved to another table. We ordered a bread basket to start with. It came with 6 pieces of burned toast for $6. We ordered chicken pot pie, walleye and stroganoff. The wild rice side for the pot pie was cold, the meat in the stroganoff was very tough but the walleye was good. It took a long time to get our dinners and when I asked for a refill on my pop the waitress also brought another iced tea for my mom. We were done with dinner and my mom didn't want another iced tea but the waitress told her she had to drink it. At that point we just wanted to get our check and leave. That took another long amount of time. I'm writing Crooners off my go to restaurant list. The entertainment in the bar is great however.
Sad that server never told us there was a special. Didn't even see it until we exited the dining room. Would have preferred it for dinner. The beef stroganoff was good and the beet salad was excellent.
We are there for a birthday dinner.
The food was very good, the waitstaff was attentive and the entertainment is a great bargain.
What a treasure of an entertainment venue. A mashup of supper club and nightclub. We heard a venerable musical group perform after having dined here. Will we go back? Absolutely! Not a doubt. And, we will take friends.
I was unimpressed with the quality of the food and the prices are high. There is an up-charge for almost everything, including bread. If you want any gratin potatoes, it’s an additional charge. I like the music there, but the food and prices are disappointing.
Our reservation was at 5pm on a Friday, so you can imagine it was not busy at that point. It took 45 minutes for our server to take our drink order, she had been truly walking back and forth complaining about things, loudly telling the manager that her area was too large and that she was not going to take the table that had been seated (before we got there), when she did come to our table she struggled telling us the specials and laughed loudly when she messed up. She didn’t help us to feel welcomed nor did she check on us very often...even when we tried to get her attention. We asked for our check at 6:45pm even though we were not done because we had tickets to the theater for 7:30 pm. The food was amazing, the ambiance fantastic, the performer for the evening was sitting next to us , same server same issues, but he overheard it was my birthday and sang to our table which was super awesome. My suggestion, have more servers on a Friday night. We will definitely be back.... hoping for a different server next time or at least for her to be less stressed next time.
I usually love this place, but last night we were seated in the boring dining room instead of the lovely bar area. The food was cool, must have sat in the kitchen. The fish had way too much sauce, drowned it. And the server was snippy and incompetent. Hopefully just a bad night.
The staff left a lot to desired, the wait staff messed up our order, then tried to make us feel like we ordered the wrong thing. We ordered white wine not red. We went for a show that we had a reservation for only to be told that it was for a Dining only reservation, lucky that the show was not sold out. Only to be put at a table for six in the back off to the side. Got to our table and it was either over sold or people were sitting there who d I’d not have a reservation, we were made stand in the middle of the room while they found us a table and it was pointed out rather rudely that this table was a upgraded table from what we had. While we had to wait around I almost got knocked around and pushed out of the way by at least 3 staff members who apparently had somewhere to be and did not bother to say excuse me or apologize for actually pushing me out of the way. I also nearly got hit by a cart that some staff was pushing somewhere, if I didn’t turn and see her just in time the cart would of smashed my kneecap as we were sitting at a high top table in the bar area. Overall while the show was outstanding and very enjoyable the place itself was far from it and I will not be back anytime soon.
Prime rib is delicious and reasonably priced! Service is excellent the as well.
I have eaten here multiple times and the service and food is exceptional.
We visit frequently. The food is good, the music great and the staff is helpful and friendly.
Thanksgiving buffet was excellent well spaced out so not to crowed. That said preferred last years table service for elderly parent as it was difficult for her to walk and carry a plate as she made her selections. Host owner Margarita was gracious as ever. Love Crooners the food is always fabulous service great music fantastic best place in Twin Cities.
While the Thanksgiving Buffet food and service was ok, our experience was not.
We were ushered through the room past several empty tables with the host person stopping at tables, moving chairs and leading us to a bar style table with high type chairs against the windows and was told that they would be seating other people with us at the smallish table. I objected gently and asked for a regular table. The host person said she would see what she could do and quickly came back and said that there was nothing she could do and offered a manager. The distracted manager approached and gruffly asked what the problem was. I complained about the uncomfortable bar type table and that they panned on seating others with us. Her reply was “well then, I won’t seat anyone else with you and abruptly left.
We were not aware that we would be seated with others when we made the reservation and there was no mention of the ridiculous bar type seating. Transparency would have made this all moot as we would not have made the reservation.
We eat out frequently and are always looking for a supper club type place and thought that we may have found it here but this experience left us disgusted and we will not be returning.
Our server was wonderful she was knowledable friendly and always had a smile. She made the birthday night even more enjoyable
An enjoyable meal. We did not stay for the performance although the scheduled guest would have been an added treat. Another time perhaps.
This was my first time at Crooners, which I found on Open Table, and I was wonderfully surprised by the elegance, the decor, the cleanliness, and the service by the staff. Food could be stepped up, but it was fine... just not over-the-top like the rest of Crooners. Please start a new Crooners in Minnetonka or Eden Prairie. With the live music, the wonderful atmosphere, and the old-world (Frank Sinatra era) charm, you'd do great!
I met there with some friends from high school. I hadn't seen two of them in 40 years. This was a great spot to meet. The food was delicious and the service was great. I recommend Crooners.
Asked for certain seating and I understand they have events but I did not receive a call until 3 hours before our reservations that they could not be met. And had no time to change accordingly to our evening.
The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly and attentive. It’s my 2nd time there and I wasn’t disappointed. We didn’t get tickets to the show. It was a last minute dinner option but the music sounded great.
If you want to sit in the main dinning room with the band, you will have to make reservations on the Crooners website. This was a little disappointing as I thought we would be able to see the band and we were in a separate dining room.
The prime rib special jumped ten dollars in price and was really fat.
To get a decent table we had to pay $10.00/person for four people even though the place was half empty. We were there Friday evening at 8:45PM Oct 12th
Food was delicious, and the band was sensational. Hope you get them back again!! Thanks!
We have been here 4-5 times over the past year only because of the convenience of the location and who we were meeting. We are done. I must say, the pricing is quite high for the value. The prime rib "special" was $36 a la carte. This is not downtown Minneapolis, and yes, we have been to Seven Steakhouse and paid much higher pricing. Would do that all day long compared to the ambiance and service at Crooners.
Service was mediocre. Food was good overall, but the bearnaise sauce that came with my steak was cold and tasted like it was from a mix and not homemade. At a supper club they only offered one steak, which was a NY Strip. It was ordered medium rare and came out medium well. The blue cheese stuffed olives were from a jar and not fresh and the server didn't pour the wine after the corking and tasting. That's fine at a chain restaurant, but if you're not there for the music then it's a huge failure.
The food was good, not great. Could have had a broader steak selection - it was limited to a NY strip and steak frites. We shared a chop salad that was quite good. Ambiance would have been better were we not next to the kitchen door. Probably not worth the $115 for two people. I would like to go again and sit in the lounge where the music is.
The main dining room had a retirement party, the bar room and lakeside room had live music and I was not aware of the need to make reservations for one of the shows (was not an option on Opentable) We were sat pretty quickly even though. Lots of gluten free options, which was great. My friend had the Steak and Frites, which she really liked. I had the Broiled Walleye but it seemed as though it was steamed, not broiled? It was lacking seasoning which is not uncommon when ordering Gluten Free (I'll never figure this one out, butter, salt & pepper can do wonders). I appreciate the concern over making sure the meal was gluten free, just wish there was a little more thought to the seasoning.
I would give Crooner's another shot though because of the plentiful options for GF meals.
