Food is good, especially if you aren't looking for anything terribly 'gourmet'. Well prepared, basic food. Not a huge menu, but good steak and walleye. I just think it's a little overpriced for the type of food offered. I would go back, but only for specials or with a coupon

We are repeat customers and are never disappointed. Try different food items each time and always leave satisfied. Waitresses always so friendly and polite. Was surprised when our waitress this time remembered us from our last visit about 6 weeks ago.

We came to Jensen's to celebrate my 60th birthday and everything was excellent! We don't live near by so generally only get there for special occasions but every time we come we have a fantastic meal and exceptional service. Definitely a place I'd recommend to anyone wanting a wonderful evening out!

It's been a while since I could say this but I've paid less to fill my gas tank than I did for my own plate. The food here is well made and thoughtful but so very expensive. I could recommend any of the dishes on the menu but I recommend taking out a second mortgage before doing so.

We enjoyed our nite! Food was great and the ambiance too. Our server was not good. We had to go find her finally. She just was not attentive at all. However I would return for the food and the ambiance and a different server.

As a long time customer I have always enjoyed the experience. The one thing I miss is the veggie tray. The prices aren't any lower and it was the one thing that you didn't add on the bill. Food and service was excellant

We enjoy Jensens and their food. What we DONT enjoy at all is getting stuck in their back room. It feels like your in a banquet room and it was cold. We've been seated in this section a few times and we will no longer let them seat us there. If they don't have another table we will leave and go some place else.

I always enjoy Jensen's. The early bird menu is especially good but you really have to go early.

It is a gem in Eagan and quite close to the Twin Cities Outlet stores.

The walleye is very good.

Jensen's is extremely expensive and the quality of the food is not very good. The steak was adequate, caesar salad was awful, au gratin potatoes were good and the popovers are good. Overall it was not worth half the price we paid. The service was very slow due to the food not being ready. Won't be visiting again anytime soon!

Been to Jensen's multiple times over the years and have always enjoyed the visit. The food quality has remained consistent with some of the best entree's around. However success here has not been without impact as prices continue to rise and portions continue to get smaller here. Case in point the Parmesan Walleye is the best in town, but went a couple years back from two fillet's to one. Side dishes are all now served in presentations are 2/3rd's the size of the original. Cocktails however remain consistent with some of the best bartenders around. Servers here are all very knowledgeable.

My wife ordered a prime cut of beef and she asked for a hot pink center. Her meat arrived and looked great but was barely warm.
I had the prime rib and although it looked good, it was rubbery. The mushrooms, salads, baked potato, drinks, everything else was as you'd expect. Patty was our server and she did a very good job....I love the comfort of the place but its rather expensive for what you receive. I'll be back, just won't rush to get there.

Great restaurant, great staff and a very pleasant atmosphere go a long way. They offer great american foods minus the special sauces and avocado slices that all other restaurants seem to be pushing at this time. Thanks for keeping up a great tradition in the selections you offer!!!

Classic old school spot in Eagan. A quite and romantic place. We have basically ordered everything on the menu at this point and have yet to walk away disappointed. The popovers with sweet butter are to die for! We also had the creme brulee and ate every bite. Martini menu offers a wide variety to choose from. The Razzatini and the JB Tini are my two favorites.
If you're in the South metro, this is a great place to try out and bonus - the new outlet mall is just across the street!

There were numerous flubs and fluffs throughout the night. Ranging from a poor selection for steak as well as screwed up beverage orders. To their credit, the management made it right.
Jensen's had been a tradition for New Years Eve but we might be looking elsewhere for next year.

Crowded, noisey (both expected) but service was below par, our seating of six was crowed into table for four. Food service was hurried and delivered before first cocktail was finished. Food, for the most part up to Jensen's standards but my ribs were undercooked, tough and flavorless. Overall a place to avoid for New Years Eve.
