Nice time. Good bartender. Accommodating. We didn’t eat but managed to drink a few beers and relax.

My lunchmate just had a cheeseburger (medium rare) and she said it is the best burger she has ever had except for the ones she makes at home. I had a club sandwich - would have preferred it on white bread not toasted (guess I didn't check the menu close enough) but it was okay. It did get a bit loud with a bunch of guys sitting up at the bar so it was hard to hear each other.

I was so very pleased with the lunch that I had at Joe Senser's. The service was great- very efficient and friendly. Food was outstanding. Enjoyed the Walleye Poor Boy sandwich. My date had the chicken sandwich and she was very pleased . Margaritas were very good. The entire process went so well that she agreed to go out with me on a second date. Again, completely satisfied.

Server was very nice. Food needs some improvement. The wood fired pizza needs to be cooked longer. It was very doughy. Wood fired pizzas should have a crispy crust. I asked for my French fries to be extra crispy because they had been soggy in the past. They were probably soggier than any fries I've ever had there. All American Burger and Senser fries are very good.

So fun to be back at one of our fave local spots. Christina was our server and she was wonderful. The Senser teas are delish and the MVP burger was a crowd pleaser

Made reservation on OpenTable; hostess had no idea that we had a reservation. Male manager or assistant manager (tall, slender....dressed in a black shirt and khaki pants) did acknowledge us or speak to us when we walked in....he appeared annoyed that we were we there and by the fact that he had to set up the table for my party.

we went to watch the World Series as my son learned how to score a baseball game. I made reservations letting them know this and they sat us right in front of the screen where the game was playing. Our server, Melissa, was friendly, attentive and great at her job!

Joe Sensers contacted open table and accused me of a no show. Wrong ya the reservation was for 3 people and two showed. Way to drop the ball ...
probably the last time I will eat at your place because of it.

If you aren’t going to prepare burgers the way they are ordered, then don’t bother asking how we want them cooked. The only thing that made the experience better was our server. She was very nice and polite, but she didn’t notice several issues we had while dining there. We won’t be back.

Great waitress friendly, helpful seemed to like her job which was refreshing. She was noticeably professional so much so that we commemted to her about it. Well she sat down for just a minute and we had a delightful and personal conversation that literally made our night. She made a good evening even better.

This is the first time we’ve visited since the remodel and we loved it. The drinks were fantastic but the best part was our server. She was so polite and attentive and I loved how much she cared about our experience and to those around us. She is so good at her craft!

A few friends and myself flew to the Bloomington area to work for Super Bowl and was looking for a place to eat. After looking around for some local flavor we decided on Senser's. The place is a very nice size, awesome layout for seating and Tv's, food was great, and overall a very pleasant atmosphere. Our waiter Eli was very knowledgeable about the food, energetic & positive attitude, and very observant to our needs such as if we needed a refill on our water or soda. Overall it was an awesome experience, an awesome layout & concept for a restaurant/bar/sports grill combination area. We will stop by at least once more before we leave town.

The restaurant was not very busy. The server took an inordinate amount of time to come to the table for the first time and then continued to forget what we had ordered and bring it accordingly. Additionally, the food lacked taste, at best.

Weekends in the summer may be the ticket as many go away to cabins. Nachos were outstanding. Kids loved the ribs. The wedge salad was also outstanding.
