Probably one of the best if not the best weekly brunch buffets in the metro. We especially like the ample assortment of fresh fruit, vegetables, and salad in addition to the usual breakfast offerings (French toast, waffles, scrambled eggs, made-to-order omelets). Complimentary mimosa, champagne, or OJ is a plus.

We sat by one of the fireplaces. It was cozy. We had a wonderful server named Casey. She was attentive but not overly so. Casey smiled and had good eye contact and checked on our menu questions right away. She kept a close eye on us and maintained our beverages and had great timing overall. The food was delicious and the wine was excellent.

We have been going to lord Fletcher’s for over 20 years and it is always on our to do list when in Palm Springs. Great food and service. I do miss the table side Caesar salad preparation. But the prime rib is great.

We plan at least one family outing a year at Lord Fletcher’s around the Holiday. Love the augratin potatoes!! Pork chops are okay, good flavor, but not as tender as I would expect. My son did not care for his pasta, it did not have much flavor or seasoning. My husband enjoyed his steak and my other son liked his hamburger.

We had not been to this restaurant for several years and decided it was time to go! It is right on Lake Minnetonka and the ice was frozen enough that they had 2 rinks out on the lake where folks were playing broomball. Made for fun viewing during dinner. My husband and I both had the walleye dinner, his beer battered and mine pan fried with almonds. Both were excellent. The fish was done nicely and was very tasty. The side dish was an gratin potatoes which were also good. The salad was fresh and crispy with a nice light dressing. Will definitely go back.

Overall an enjoyable experience, but after having they're pan fried walleye I don't understand the hype because I didn't think it was anything special. It was prepared well, but lacked flavor. I loved the au gratin potatoes. My mom's steak and rice bowl were very good. Our server never offered cracked black pepper(I saw other servers offering it) which I was a little bummed about because it would have been delicious on our salads.

We are regulars and this visit did not disappoint. I had the walleye dinner, always a hit. My wife had the lamb loin with fig risotto and it was outstanding. I wanted to go back the next night and have what she had. We love lamb and this was perfectly cooked. In the past, we loved the lamb shank as well and would love to see that back on the menu. Excellent comfort/winter food.

My husband and I dined at lord fletcher’s for my birthday dinner. Unfortunately, I ordered the filet mignot and my husband ordered the steak sandwich. I ended up sending it back because it did not taste good and potatao was cold and in a packed square. I was disappointed in the price and expecting a nice entree and the quality/taste wasn’t there. My husband didn’t care for his sandwich either but we felt bad having to send back more food. I did enjoy the bread basket because I was so hungry. The server was sweet and did a pretty good job. Overall,
the staff was friendly and the atmosphere was nice but very disappointed in the food quality and the prices seemed high, it did not match up.

A good friend was starting a new job. Our waiter was fantastic!! We has a problem with one of the steaks bring too well done, he quickly brought out a new one. He went 110 percent to make our evening great!!! He went into detail regarding different wines that you offer and the one he suggested was perfect with our meal. He gave a complimentary dessert to the person we were celebrating. It was a wonderful evening, we will be back.

This particular visit was not our best. We usually have the pan fried Walleye but this time we wanted to try the beer battered Walleye. Big mistake. It was under cooked and the inside of the batter was very soggy and disgusting. My wife and I dug the Walleye out of the batter and ate just the Walleye instead of complaining. Our fries were also soggy. We have seen on TV what cooks do to peoples food when you send it back so that's why we chose not to send it back. In all it was very disappointing. We drive all the way from Ramsey to eat here on a regular basis and this is by far the worst experience we have had here. We both got the Lava cake for desert and it was so rich and over bearing that we could not finish that as well. Which was recommended by the server. Who was very slow that night. In all it took nearly 90 minutes from start to finish before we were done. If we have an experience like this again we will no longer make that trip all the way from Ramsey.
