Huevos Rancheros "of the Gods"
Gluten-free upon request. A crisp flour tortilla layered with buttery hashbrowns, spicy black beans, soft-scrambled eggs, and a 3-cheese blend baked to a golden brown. Called "Huevos Rancheros of the Gods" by roadfood.com. Topped with hand-chopped salsa and sour cream.
These are the award-winners that put us on the map. Three melt-in-your-mouth hotcakes made with fresh lemon zest and ricotta cheese. You can get them with fresh berries and pure maple syrup, but try your first bite without the syrup!
Mac & Cheese
One of our favorite comfort foods on the planet: Cavatappi noodles with a special blend of cheeses including a hint of pepper jack
Amazing food, staff and experience. Our family’s favorite pre-pandemic brunch spot and so happy to see that nothing has changed.
A must stop every time I return to MN.
Service was awesome, which is hard to find lately! Food was phenomenal as usual!
They were out of many dishes and their appetizer was beyond underwhelming. I could get better bar food from other restaurants. We went for the name, reputation and ended up leaving to wait almost 2 hours at another place to eat.
It was my birthday dinner, they barely had any sides available i wanted. Pan seared walleye was decent could use some seasoning. Also never got a birthday cupcake, seen another table did. Restaurant wasn’t what I expected.
Salisbury steak gravy was salty. And the size of piece of cheesecake was underwhelming for 8$. Though it was incredible.
Went for the Bloody Mary's and really enjoyed them! The food was amazing and I would definitely make a trip back for those Huevos Racheros! Make reservations!
Delicious as always but they were out of a number of menu items so that was a bit frustrating.
Staff is great! Have always loved the atmosphere. Food and wine were good but not great. But, I would return - try something else - and I am sure I will! (Also, I do not want to be "scared away" from downtown restaurants!
Thank you for your kind words and continued support of not just us, but all Downtown MPLS restaurants as we work through a difficult time! We're so happy to hear that you enjoy our staff and our atmosphere, but if you have any thoughts on how we could improve our food or drinks, we're always open to constructive feedback. Regardless, we can't wait to serve you again!
Always a quality option with a fun twist on foods
Thanks for your kind words; we hope to see you again soon!
Southwest chicken wrap was great! Nice kick but still great flavor!
Thank you! The sauce our chefs came up with really does add a little kick with a lot of flavor, and we're thrilled you enjoyed it. We hope to serve you again soon!
Brunch was amazing, as always. The new lemon ricotta waffle is somehow even better than the hit cakes. Service was great! And the Covid protocols show how much they care!
Thanks so much for your kind words about our food and service, and especially about our covid protocols--we know it's not time to get lax and we're serious about ensuring everyone who enters our restaurant is not just well-fed, but safe as well. We hope to serve you again soon!
Hell's Kitchen is still one of the best restaurants in town. Good is awesome and the staff are amazing! So glad they've made it through and can't wait to go back again!
We love seeing your kind words and recommendation; thank you so much! Our team of employee-owners has worked incredibly hard (and smart) to navigate us through the past year and a half, and we couldn't ask for better people at the help. We can't wait to serve you again!
Incredible service with plenty of original takes on standards. Well worth the visit and the experience.
Thank you for your kind words and recommendation; we're so glad we could show you great service and that you appreciated the type of food we serve. We hope we get the chance to serve you again soon!
Father and son boys baseball trip.
Thanks so much for choosing us for your baseball trip; we're so glad you had a good time and we hope to serve you again!
Great place - go find out for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
Thank you for your kind words and your recommendation; it means the world to us and we can't wait to serve you again next time you find yourself in our neck of the woods!
The food and service is unparalleled, we were seated exactly at my reservation time, the server was knowledgeable and quick with suggestions but I opted for my standby sausage bread and homemade peanut butter as an appetizer and Lemon Ricotta hot cakes as the main course accompanied by the masterpiece Bloody Mary served with a dill pickle slice and sausage link stirrer and a lager sidecar. The cinnamon roll, Eggs Benedict and the French Toast should not be overlooked. Don’t forget to bring a jar of peanut butter home.
Thank you for the kind words and continued support--we really appreciate your dish recommendations and we can't wait for the chance to serve you again in the future!
Amazing as always!
Thank you for your kind words and continued support; we hope we can show you another amazing experience next time you're in the area!
Waiter was awesome! Knowledgeable, funny, friendly! Amazing food, great variety. Neat setup of restaurant.
Thanks so much for visiting and for sharing your kind words about our menu, our restaurant, and our employee-owners. We hope to serve you again in the future!
Mediocre place. Went there for dinner but they only have 4 items on the menu for dinner unless you want a burger or waffle. Not the place to go for a special occasion. Had an appetizer of cheese curds which were good. Overall I would go somewhere else which we did. Went to the steakhouse across the street. Way better!! They require a credit card to make a reservation which was stupid IMO as there was only a couple others there. Not worth it. Go elsewhere.
Thank you for visiting, although we're dismayed that you didn't stay for your whole meal! While it's true that we're not looking to offer a high-end steakhouse experience (we made our name on the back of our breakfast and brunch), we're thankful that we do have many guests who return to us for their special occasion dinners. We're happy that you found a dinner that worked for your special occasion, even if it wasn't with us, and we hope you'll give us another shot during our famous brunch!
The staff at Hells Kitchen are top notch. The food is pretty amazing too! Our server was kind and attentive. The bartender was amazing!
Thank you so much for your kind words and compliments, especially about our staff--whether they're cooking your food, mixing your drinks, or bringing it all to your table, our employee-owners are what make Hell's Kitchen great. We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
Great experience. Food was delicious and Nate was a great server. We enjoyed our experience and highly recommend. We were there on a Friday for brunch.
Thank you for visiting and for sharing your kind words! We're so glad you enjoyed the food and received great service from Nate (we actually have a few servers named Nate, and they're all wonderful members of our team). We hope you'll consider returning next time you're in the area!
Great food. Great service. Great ambiance. Best Bloody Mary's! A must to go to when in Minneapolis!
Thank you so much for your kind words about our food, service, ambiance, and more! We're thrilled to have your recommendation and we hope we get the chance to serve you again next time you're in the area!
We went for breakfast and it was delicious. I can’t wait for the Bloody Mary bar to open back up.
Thank you for visiting and thank you for your kind words! We can't wait to be able to safely open the Bloody Mary Bar again, but we're glad to hear you had a great breakfast regardless. Hopefully we'll see you again soon!
We sat right beside the door to the kitchen, so that was pretty annoying. We made a reservation the day before going and when we got there, they said they couldn’t find our reservation. They said they found it after we had already eaten and told us they would’ve put us at a better table if they knew it was our anniversary, which we stated on our reservation. The food was okay but wasn’t as good as we imagined.
Delicious and unique porridge. Great caramel pecan roll.
Thanks for your kind words and for visiting our restaurant. Our porridge and caramel pecan roll have been guest favorites for nearly two decades, and we love hearing that they're still pleasing diners. We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
It was a nice experience. I would come again and recommend to others.
Thank you for visiting and for giving us your recommendation; we're thrilled to hear you had a nice experience and hope we get the chance to serve you again!
Got exactly what we expected. The best food. Unique menu. Amazing cocktails. And fantastic service. It’s a must anytime we come to Minneapolis.
Thank you for your very kind words and your continued support--those that return time after time and help spread the "gospel" of Hell really are the key to staying afloat in a tough industry like ours, and we can't begin to show our support. We can't wait to serve you again next time you're in Minneapolis!
2nd visit to Hell's Kithen and I'll be back for a third w next trip to Minneapolis. Food and service were great as I've come to expect.
Thank you for visiting us (again) and for sharing your kind words; we look forward to serving you again next time you end up here in MPLS!
Unbelievably great food. Everyone in our party was beyond pleased. Also had live music which was fantastic. Bloody Mary's were outstanding. The staff was great, responsive and fun!
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your review; we're thrilled to hear you had such a great brunch. Between the energy in the room, the live music, and the food we're serving, Brunch is one of our absolute favorite times to be open, and we hope to see you again in the future!
Food was good, not sure if service was slow due to lack of staff.
Thanks for visiting and sharing your experience--we're glad you liked the food, although we're sorry that service was slower than anticipated. Almost all restaurants are experiencing staffing shortages right now, but we do try our best to structure our staffing so that service never suffers. If you have any more info you'd like to share with us, we always appreciate constructive feedback, and we hope you'll consider giving us another shot in the future!
We went for brunch and had the Bloody Mary, Bison Waffle and Country Friend Steak Waffle. The bloodies were awesome. The bison waffle was ok but over priced. Ultimately it didn’t seem like there was much bison. The Country Fried Steak had an unappetizing texture and was disappointing. Also, they included a 15% service charge that they said was not the tip and was not stated until after the meal, on the bill. That seems misleading and I would have preferred they were upfront with that.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts, both about what you enjoyed as well as what you felt could have been improved. Our waffles are still relatively new menu items and honest feedback helps us make sure that every single one comes out just right. As for the service charge, we do our best to inform diners of the service charge up-front, which is why it's clearly labeled on our website, our online ordering platforms, our online menus, and our physical menus.
We were seated in the dining area to the left if the host stand. It was a very comfortable and quiet space. The brunch offerings were many and delicious! Charlie was an excellent server and made sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful dining experience.
Thanks so much for coming in and for sharing your experience; we're so glad to hear that you had a great brunch experience and we hope you'll consider returning in the future!
