Excellent combo lunch specials. Very tasty and good value. Service was great.
The restaurant was very nice- our waitress was very nice and helpful- the rotisserie chicken and mashed potatoes were very good - however, I wish they offered a pre-dinner salad and some bread. The "meal" was good, but a little sparse with no bread/salad option to go with it.
Incredible food, great wine, excellent service
The restaurant was very good a preparing delicious food very quickly. The server was very attentive and friendly and she did a great job making the night very enjoyable. I would come back.
I hadn't been to FireLake Grill House Downtown Minneapolis since they remodeled. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice, bright and clean looking it was. Food was delicious and service was good. Very easy to get in and out in an hour for lunch.
Bloody Mary was awful and the food was subpar for the price, will not return.
Our server Carlos was fantastic and the super bowl ambience was really exciting! We sat next to Dale Earnhardt Jr! Mimosas are $3!
Super Bowl Live
Great location and great staff. The bartender makes a great Old fashion
Very slow an unattentive staff. We waited a good 20 minutes without being approached for an order. It was only after approaching the hostess that service began. We were local- but, if service like this occurs during the very busy upcoming Super Bowl festivities- this will not bode well for our city or the restaurant that is associated with a highly regarded hotel brand.
Nice lunch spot. Good food, very good service, quiet enough for conversation.
Excellent meal and service. Have been here several times and have always had a great time. You can't go wrong with any menu item, but we recommend the walleye or the steak frites. Server (Katie) was top-notch.
First time here. Had a group of five. Kevin our server was top notch. He was very upbeat and attentive. The food was average and a bit overpriced. Walleye was covered in Panko. For me that’s just a waste of fish. The continued theme of too much sugar on every
Meal is offensive. Cornbread and popovers good. Lamb ribs very good. $14.00 drink is just a bit too much. Nothing was memorable and for us left us all not disappointed but gave us no reason to want to go back. Called prior to arrival and told valet parking is $10.00. Valet parking was $17.00. I think you have other options and would probably skip this place.
The food, atmosphere and service are top notch. Try the rotissiere chicken!
It was overall just average. Would try again. The salad was super tasty.
Both our host, and our server(Libby) were lovely. We tried several cocktails and they were all very good. The Swedish mule cocktail was especially delicious. Please order the walleye frites, they are amaze-ballz:) really really great!
The chicken and the walleye were very good and a well-rounded meal. My husband, at 6'3" ordered Swedish type meatballs, which were served with mashed potatoes and no vegetable. The plate looked like it was missing something. It was not a small plate and I think we just assumed a vegetable would be served with it, as was the case with the chicken and walleye. Luckily, one of my daughters is not a big eater and gave him one of her chicken pieces and mashed potatoes. Otherwise, a lovely restaurant and service.
The service is friendly, unfortunately the menu is dated and the food was overdone. The restaurant was not full providing no excuse for the preparation skills from the kitchen. Service is not able to overcome the food.
We like the food, especially the popovers. It is easy to get in and out for a person who usesa walker.
We had a business meeting at FireLake, and it was the perfect setting. Our server was fabulous, the food was delicious, and we were able to stay long enough to discuss our business. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Amazing experience. First time there and will go back often. Very comfortable environment with an open feel but intimate at the same time. Menu was diverse and the food and drink were terrific with very nice size portions. All brought together by the wait staff who were professional and courteous to a fault. Special thanks to Wendy, our waiter, who made the night even more perfect.
Great place start the evening before the show you may see.
The venison tips and gathered green salad were a fantastic combo. My waitress was great, she was friendly and gave suggestions of what she liked most. I had a great meal and will bring friends.
We were staying at the hotel and came for breakfast which was excellent. Waitress was particularly careful with my husband's nut allergy and had the griddle cleaned from the maple pecan pancakes before our gluten-free lemon ricotta pancakes were cooked. These were served with creamy ricotta and lovely orange marmalade and strawberries. Blueberries would have been better, but strawberries just fine. Would order again. There were so many tempting things on the menu that it was hard to choose. We will return.
We had burgers that were very good. The fries were done as requested. Service was excellent.
The walleye continues to be great, the prime rib was nicely done, the popovers very good, and the soups and salads were excellent. However, we were the the Sunday after Thanksgiving, for dinner, and the service had much to be desired. Additionally, if you are going for something specific you see on the online menu call to make sure they still have it; apparently the online menu is not always up to date. Even with those issues, we will still go back.
Food okay but nothing special; service erratic; seats rather uncomfortable; very noisy.
My friend and I were both staying in town for Thanksgiving, even though our families were out of state. We found FireLake Grill House on a list of restaurants that were serving Thanksgiving. It was a great meal, the server was so friendly and after the Traditional Thanksgiving meal, the waiter brought out turkey sanwhiches for “leftovers”. Would definitely go there again for Thanksgiving and other occasions!
The meal, for mine, was so so. I was expecting more burger options as the online menu indicated so. There are 5 burgers online and only two of them were on the menu last night. Neither of which were the ones I had my mind set on. I ordered the angry bison burger and while it looked to be cooked as I asked (medium rare) there wasn't a lot of flavor and it tasted dry.
We also ordered the grazing platter... Again ingredients were different than what was listed online.
I wouldn't have selected this restaurant if the menu was listed correctly. A little too of the beaten path.
Love this place. Always a favorite. Food is excellent as well as the service!
We had a 25th anniversary party with my maid and matron of honor and their spouses. We let the waitress know we would be lingering and conversing and that we were in no hurry to rush the night. She accommodated and did a wonderful job- from an appetizer suggestion to our wonderful entrees - she also brought an assortment of tasty desserts to share and re-heated my coffee that came a bit too cool.
We had a wonderful night and we so enjoyed it, that we returned on Sunday for brunch - just my husband and me. We enjoyed our meal again and the mimosas as well!
We'd come back!
Had such a wonderful time here for lunch! The wings were amazing! Thank you!
The décor updated in last couple of years and with that update they removed the warm/comfortable and upscale feel of the dining area. The chairs were probably the most uncomfortable chairs they could have selected. Worse than the chairs was the service. After arriving and escorted by host, we sat at least 10 minutes after arrival before anyone greeted us at table. The server disappeared for long blocks of time. I used to love the Fire Lake Grill but now we will not be back.
The overall experience was horrible. The food was worse than going to McDonald's. The entire staff was sub par. Ordered the Bison burger, it was horrible. I took 2 bites and pushed it away. Our server asked how everything was, I said not good. She said sorry. The manager walked by our table at least a dozen times seeing my food almost untouched. She never came over until the very end, and said, we took that off your bill. We will never eat there again. So much for a romantic dinner out with my wife.
FireLake continues to be one of my favorite restaurants! The food is always excellent and the wait staff is courteous, patient, and best of all, usually has a sense of humor. If you are looking for great place to start a night out, look no further.
There were 3 of us and in order to try various meals we ordered 3 entree's and shared family style. Worked very well. Portions were large enough to do that and everything tasted really good. The service was timely and the wait staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
The food was good and we appreciate the local sourcing. It was a little louder than we would have liked for just the two of us.
We visited on a Friday evening and really enjoyed our experience. The food and service was excellent! I am pleased to recommend and will be back for more!
We had a terrific evening ! Love where we were seated at the long table against the wall. It was quieter for hard of hearing person in our group. The food was excellent with no surprises. Everyone was happy with their choice. Just delicious and good service. We will be back
Delicious food and cool space! Would definitely return here.
