My daughter and I enjoyed supper at this restaurant. The service was great and the food delicious. She had Parmesan Fish and I asked what they were known for and was told breakfast so I had wonderful French toast, cheesy hash browns, bacon and eggs. The place wasn’t anything fancy but Great value! Wonderful server.

Waitress was slow and inattentive despite it being a slow night. She wasn’t friendly at all. The coffee tasted like dirty dishwater. The pancakes were great as usual but I was disappointed in the overall experience.

We ate there on Saturday 1/20/18 because it was close to Ames Center. I really enjoyed the restautant and its atmosphere overall. I had the "Kitchen Sink Omelette" and it was good.

First time here. We were looking for something close to Ames Center and reviews looked good. I had the prime rib special and it was delicious. They had a good variety to choose from as well as breakfast all day long. Parking was a little tough but would not keep me from going again. Also cute little store called Ficus and Fig in the same building.

We dined prior to an event at the Ames Center nearby. Jensen's is like a small town cafe with very good food. Good value too. Wine pricing good value. Burger was great!

Three strikes, I'm out. Not going back.
I made a reservation about a month in advance for my husband, mother and I, pre-show.
We were sat in the middle of a service hallway between the cafe and empty bar.
It was right under a speaker, playing terrible music...bad 90s and "today's hits". Know your customers! My husband, at 32, was the youngest, besides a handful of teenagers with their families, by 20 years easily.
Service was adequate, food was okay.
The table was very disappointing.

Classic Supper Club menu and ambiance. Food and service were excellent. Our family occasions had been celebrated at a better known restaurant for several years, but the service and experience seemed to be on a long decline. Jensen's will be our new choice for birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

This is a great "go-to" spot. Always guaranteed a great meal with great service. I love their breakfast no matter the time of day, and the syrup is the best! Love this place!

Our server was not attentive. Food was mediocre. We had to ask for hot water for our tea, received the wrong sandwich.
Not even close to what was ordered. Salads had the wrong dressing.
Never going back.

Had a nice dinner before a show at the nearby Ames Center. Having a reservation was fortunate--there was a 30 minute wait for a table otherwise. Great food and service. We will be back!

Wine is no longer available. Reuben sandwich was bland. Chicken enchilada was without flavor despite lots of sauce. Requested salsa but what we got was not really salsa.

We enjoyed our meals very much. I've had the tuna melt and I've had the walleye dinner - both very good. We have gone for dinner more than breakfast or lunch and have had good service each time.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice, quiet Friday night dinner. Both of our meals were very good and our service was excellent. It was refreshing to be able to have a conversation without loud background noise interfering.

We took our 13 year old granddaughter out for dinner before a show at Ames Center.
She had her tonsils out 8 days prior and only had jello, applesauce and icecream since the surgery. She ordered the Swedish pancakes and was so happy that she could eat something solid and that they tasted so wonderful. She even googled the recipe and wants to make them at home. Waitress was friendly and nice. Great food. We live in Plymouth but we will definitely be back.
