Axel's Restaurants "Where traditions and memories are made"
We always enjoy coming to Axels for the good food and service. Atmosphere adds to our experience. Cobb salad is the best. Shrimp risotto was fair. Steak was very good.
We enjoyed Shari as our server.. she was prompt and fun to chat with. Hopefully we will get her at our table again
It was our son’s birthday and our server made him feel very special!
Crabby Tuesday! This is the best spot for all you can eat Snow crab legs. Greta is the most amazing server and always has the best friendly attitude.
Everything was fine- I felt it was too dark in the restaurant for a Monday at noon.
My daughter and I were stuck in Minneapolis due to a snowstorm so asked the hotel for restaurants in the area they would recommend. We chose Axels because they serve lobster and we were celebrating an event. All the food was excellent, the service was wonderful, and we made it safely back to the hotel.
Loved everything especially waitress, Terri! Food service and ambiance.
Everything was great.
Roxanne took excellent care of us! The atmosphere is so amazing. I cannot wait to go back and try more items. We had the all you can eat crab which was delicious. Bloody mary was super good too... very spicy and great flavor : ) . The french onion soup was not very hot, but my husband enjoyed it anyways. All in all GREAT EXPERIENCE
Never a bad experience!
Ok, so the draft in the corner table was atrocious. The food came and it was outstanding, the wine was perfect, which the waiter suggested. Then the gigantic bill of $270 came for three adult meals with a child's steak. yeah, tapping out Axel's River grille crazy for a Sunday early evening dinner. crazy over priced.
The food was just average, not as good as our last visit 9 months ago. The surroundings are still excellent however.
We had a great experience at Axel's last Friday. My wife and I went with our two daughters. I like their "supper club" menu option on certain items like steaks which gives you two sides, plus salad, for a nominal upcharge. Or, you can order the steak al la carte. My wife and I both went with supper club option and girls did al la carte and we split our sides. The server was terrific and generous in splitting these items, and service overall was excellent.
Food was good but service a bit slow. Nice place for a special occasion.
My first time at Axel's River Grille, all of our seating requests were honored, our wait staff was very efficient & accommodating and the food was delicious!
We went to Axel's for a birthday celebration. It was a wonderful time and the all you can eat crab legs were perfect!
Great service & food really liked the atmosphere. Looking forward to going back.
Great atmosphere in this place. The walleye was delicious, as was the filet. The bar pours a pretty good Old Fashioned. Have to come back on a Tuesday for the all you can eat Snow Crab legs.
My wife and I went to Axel’s for my birthday on Feb 25th. The food was mediocre at best and cold and flavorless at worst. The bartender couldn’t make an Old Fashion properly. I would not recommend this place for dinner.
Fantastic in every aspect!! Will definitely be back. Parking was a bit tricky. But, oh so worth it:-)
We love Axel’s! The food was amazing & great service. A friend in my party has celiac and disappointed that they didn’t do more to accommodate her. Service was a bit slow but our server did give us a heads up that she had a big party she was helping in addition to us.
Delicious prime rib. Get there early because it sells out quick!
Our waitress Sam was the perfect combination of attentive and discreet. We both ordered the Supper Club versions of our meals (scallops and filet), and enjoyed them immensely.
All I can say is "Wow!". Once again, a delightful experience, wonderful food and service that can't be beaten. Our server, Kim, was great and very attentive, while giving us time to ourselves and to enjoy the food and dining experience. We had visited in the fall and also were lucky to have Kim serve us then. Will go back in a heartbeat.....wish there were more places like this without having to drive to one of the downtown areas. Axel's is a gem!! Thanks again for a wonderful meal and experience!!
Food and service was excellent. Level of noise and being able to hear next table's conversation was annoying.
Service and food were great!
Crowded and hard to find a parking spot. Too many tables so that you felt you were dining with your neighbor. Food was good, but over priced for the ambiance and experience you receive.
Usually we have excellent service at Axels. However, on this occasion service was extremely slow. It took nearly 3 hours. Also, our bill was incorrect. They charged for a drink that my father - in - law did not order. Unfortunately he is elderly and did not notice this mistake on his bill until the next day but the waitress should have caught that.
Love this restaurant. Service and ambiance are old school elegant.. Walleye is best in the area....
All around decent. Food was good, service was pretty good, ambience was good. Nothing to complain about, typical Axel’s experience.
A little spendy but absolutely delicious. Took my hubby out for his birthday and they even brought a complimentary dessert. All around great place to go for good food and great service. We plan to come back for my birthday!!
Never seen Axel’s so busy. Service was still friendly and efficient. Popovers were cold and a bit dry. Steak was wonderful.
Great place to have a business meeting. Good service and good food!
Good food good service
They were completely overbooked. At least 45 minutes after our reservations. Food completely overpriced for the quality. It is sad to see.
We had 7:45 reservations on Valentine's Day. We showed up at 7:25 expecting it to be busy, which it was. We weren't seated until 8:20. That being said, Tiffany was a great waitress. Even with how busy it was, she had a calm demeanor and provided great service. The food was excellent. I had the lobster tails and my wife had the steak. We both enjoyed our meals and even though we had to wait, we had a nice evening.
A little backed up on Valentine's despite reservation. Got a drink at the bar and waited for the table. No complaints.
Valentines menu had great selections, the food was excellent and Terry’s service was outstanding.
Maria was a great server, very attentive and entertaining. As a bonus we were seated next to a very fun group who invited us to join them next year. #Valentines2020
