Our group of four have eaten at Lakeshore Grill a number of times and have always enjoyed the food.

Unfortunately, that changed when we recently went to dinner on 3/14. There were issues with four of the four dinners (three of which were from the Celebrate Seafood menu):
- Popovers: The first batch was way overdone. The second batch was somewhat better.
- Clam chowder: Watery, not creamy, not a lot of flavor
- Crab and Shrimp Louie Salad: Okay tasting but only one shrimp on the plate
- Beer Battered Wild Alaskan Cod:(2)
- Coleslaw: Very bitter
- Fish tasted like it was fried too long in old oil
- Also had a problem with the batter. Had to pick the fish out from it.
- Found pea pods in broccoli
- Lakeshore Rotisserie Chicken Platter: Chicken good. Side of green beans - greasy.
- Our server was efficient and knowledgeable.

Quite honestly, we didn't complain about the food during dinner as going down the list would have been overwhelming.

Due to this dinner, we would need to truly think twice about going back to Lakeshore Grill.

It was quite a surprise as to how good it was. I had the Fried Cod and french fries and my husband had the Turkey dinner. The waiter was very helpful and service was great. They have a small but good wine selection for a casual restaurant. We will
definitely go back.

Usually it is 5 stars across the board, but the food was very slow to come out and then one meal was wrong so we had to wait several minutes for the 4th person's food to arrive.

Macy’s grill is a hidden gem. Not only do they offer great vegetarian options, but in addition they offer a high class feel at a low price. Typically not super busy, so making a reservation at the last minute is always an option.

The only 2 things I could say could be improved is the 2 top tables we were sat in were very close together so we could hear everything from the table next to us and they could certainly hear us too so privacy on Valentine's day could have been a little better. Then the salmon special I got was on the small side for sure for a $25 piece of fish but it was cooked well and tasted great so overall it was a very good experience for a last minute reservation.

The Grill is a delightful place to dine and the waitress Dana made our visit enjoyable. We tried the grain bowl with added protein selection, delicious. The popovers, of course, are a hit and the petite size makes them delicious and manageable. We can always depend on the food and service at the Lakeshore Grill.

We come here a lot. Must have been an off day for the kitchen. The pot pie wasn’t very flavorful and the stir fry was so spicy and had way too much sauce. Will try again another time. Service was good.

We eat there on a fairly regular basis and love the walleye. Unfortunately that evening the fish was so overcooked that there was no flavor left at all...very disappointing. Fortunately we have had it there so many times we know how good it normally is and would still recommend your establishment. And the service was very nice.

I was there with a group of women (6) for a meeting/birthday dinner. It worked out perfectly! They have a cute bar with very well made drinks (Big Ginger is great!) and can accommodate many different size groups. It was busy but easy to talk, and the food was very good. Evereyone loved the meatloaf and the chicken pot pie, plus they had a separate gluten free menu. The prices were certainly much lower than anywhere else (like Redstone or the other chains at the mall). Its a bit hard to find (men's department area on 2nd floor) but well worth trying - and not just for lunch! Our server was very attentive and brought us a birthday dessert without asking - super nice! Would definitely recommend.

Very upset. Made reservations for NYE at 4:45. Had others meeting us there. Received an updated confirmation asking if I was still coming the day before. Got there and they were closed. Note on door saying it closed on NYE at 3:00. How awful is that? Why bother to go through opentable if they don’t know the times the restaurant is open? From now on will call restaurant and not bother with opentable. So 😠 mad! Half hour drive spoiled our evening.

The restaurant has a nice menu with pretty average prices. The noise level was such that we could have a conversation. We did have a difficult time understanding the waitress however.

I have gone to Lakeshore Grill at Southdale many times but this was my first time at Ridgedale which was closer to person we were picking up for dinner. I chose Lakeshore Grill because thought it would be quiet for conversation. However, I was disappointed with the ambiance in particular - much noisier as to hard-surface floors, open kitchen etc. - very noisy. Food was very good although popovers were very small and soggy compared to Grill at Southdale.

The last renovations to the restaurant ruined the warm, welcoming, comfortable atmosphere that made the restaurant so appealing.

You must make it very clear that you want a booth away from the noisy, exposed kitchen.
