Always one of my favorite restaurants. It didn’t disappoint for Sunday brunch. Complimentary blueberry muffins were scrumptious.

I was greeted by Karen Battaglia Ganini and she welcomed me warmly and we stared a conversation in Italian - what a treat -totally unexpected, and greatly appreciated. Our server was LJ - she was the quintessential "MINNESOTA NICE". She took such good care of us. I only ever want to go back when these two are working! Great place, great food!

The lunch combo's were awesome! The 1/2 crab sandwich was a little small though but the wedge salad was terrific. The wild rice soup was very tasty!

My girlfriend had never been to Kincaid's. It was her birthday and she wasn't disappointed. The meal was delicious. The sun was streaming in on a very frigid day and she got a lovely birthday dessert, complete with a candle and birthday card.

Overall, we enjoyed our time at Kincaid’s. Upon arrival we were greeted by a hostess that seemed unhappy to have us there and then had a weird interaction with the lady who seated us. After that, the experience was great. Our server was fun, gave great recommendations and was attentive to our needs. She definitely made our experience great that night. Thanks!

We took advantage of the buy one lunch combo and get another one fee. The food was delicious, and Jay was a great waiter as usual. Great deal, great food and great service!
Thank you.

Pork Chop with plum reduction sauce outstanding. Pasta Entrée also very good. Sarah H. our server was very personable and efficient. One of the better experiences we have had at Kincaid's in some time. Unsure if new General Manager should get the credit. Have already book a return visit.

We love the steaks (but no ribeye), fish, fresh pasta, colorful side dishes, and don’t forget the crab dip. The bread was yummy too and with butter melting across the top crust. We finished with dessert (Sebastian Joe ice cream and creme brûlée) and were full until noon the next day. The device is consistently outstanding. I love the way they arrange the tables so you feel like nobody is next door.

Been there two times for lunch. Good service the first time; poor service the second.
The burger is your best bet, if you don't mind paying $15.00 for an unremarkable one, ditto the fries.
The clams are best avoided: quarter sized shells containing fingernail sized clams, you get about twelve. Broth is so salty as to be inedible and accompanying toast is large chunks that are hard.
No plate for your empty shells and you are expected to eat these tiny things with a regular sized fork. I have clams and or mussels often when dining out and this was a poor showing.

My husband and I decided, last minute, to go out for dinner on Christmas night. We were able to get a reservation at Kincaid’s, one of about five restaurants open. Both of us has been to Kincaid’s in the past, but several years ago. What a wonderful, cozy Christmas dinner! The food was excellent. Why is this restaurant not a “hot spot” anymore? It’s a shame that other, more trendy restaurants get top billing, when Kincaid’s is just as it should be, and everything we remembered that we loved about it - great food and perfect service. Kincaid’s will definitely be on our short list for special occasions in the future. Thank you for making our Christmas memorable!

We celebrated birthdays for three of our family members at Kincaid’s on Christmas day, and we’re not a bit disappointed. The food was excellent, the service unmatched, and the location was perfect for us. It was a very cold night, so it was nice that we could access the restaurant easily through the parking ramp. It had been years since I had been to Kincaid’s because we have moved out of Minneapolis, but it had been a favorite family place that we have revisited. We most enthusiastically would recommend Kincaid’s and will return again as soon as we can!

We have been coming here for Christmas dinner for years. Sadly this is our last. After standing at the hostess stand without being greeted by the 4 women for 5 minutes, we were finally told they were behind on our reservation time. I also got to witness one of the hostesses OPEN PALM wipe her nose several time. Not back hand but open palm!

After being seated around 7:20, we were told they were out of Prime Rib and one of their filet cuts. This left us with 3 other entrees that were all fish. How does a restaurant run out of their special mid dinner on Christmas???

The manager did come over and told us they would fix a New York strip for us. Sadly it came out well done instead of medium.

Our server was very nice and don’t blame her for any of this misfortune. Way way over priced and food was mediocre for what we received.
