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.
Great experience on their last day
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
So sorry they are closing...Macy's was never in the game!
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.
We are really going to miss The Oak Grill, it was our favorite spot downtown for lunch.
The Oak Grill... Ahh we'll miss you so much. We always went there for a special occasion, and also for an annual christmas dinner. We will miss it dearly...
As expected it was very busy and while we got water fairly soon, did have to wait about 15 min to have a waitress come to get our orders. A friend and I have gone to Dayton's/Fields/Macy's for years for the annual Christmas and Flower shows and lunch after in the Grill or Skyroom - always excellent food, popovers and have not been happy with Macy's since they had owernship but did like the Oak Grill. We will miss these two restaurants. Our food was very good -
Very sad it closed. Shame on Macy's If the new owners reopen it I will be there
Closing tomorrow. Just ok. Old tradition ends...has been nice...
Sad that is closing, we have been going to the oak grill for years, 1970 and up and the skyroom before that.
My friend & I enjoyed a final meal at the Oak Grill before it closed on Jan 27th. This fine restaurant will be missed.
