This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - A Minneapolis tradition was born on October 2, 1947, when the Oak Grill opened for business. Architect Bob Hansen used characteristics from the Jacobean period in the design of the rooms. The ornate fireplace, originally from Salisbury, England, was over 300 years old when it was transported in sections and reassembled in the Oak Grill. With its solid oak columns and vast frame, it soon became the room's focal point. Its distinctive appearance, along with dark paneling, red chairs and dim lighting, help give the Oak Grill its cozy ambiance.

This was a way to say goodbye to a restaurant I had enjoyed for many, many years. I will miss the comfortable atmosphere, the warm popovers, and the memories.

What a pleasure to be there one last time. Our server told us I had received their very last pot pie ever. And it was delicious.

Sad to see this icon go after years of enjoyment, we had been going here for 35 years and enjoy it every time the staff was always warm and enjoyable. The food was always great and made us come back

The Oak Grill was fabulous today, as it always is. Today, I took my nephew to lunch at this great downtown Minneapolis restaurant (his first time). We enjoyed everything about the event - the food, the service, the atmosphere ... and the history. Oak Grill, your servers and cooks are the very best - professional, polite, respectful, knowledgeable and, quite simply, really good people. So long, dear friend. Godspeed to all Oak Grill employees!

By the time anyone reads this The Oak Grill will be closed permanently. Along with the original Dayton's department store, it is the end of an era.

This was a wonderful restaurant in a grand store, but no one shopped the store... so the store and restaurant are now gone. We can't change this reality, but if there is a favorite store or restaurant on your list you haven't been to lately, you should go.

We can't lament when things go away if we personally did nothing to support them with our time and money.

Macys oak grill brought back many fond memories.. Meat loaf always our favorite and we can still enjoy it at maces in Ridgedale with our coupons that were given to us at our Oak Grill last meal. We will miss it.
