Another fabulous meal and drinks at Lyn65! It was a busy Saturday evening at the restaurant but our server, food, and drinks were fabulous. You will love this hidden gem in Richfield. Lots of fun craft beers and cocktails to try along with amazing food ~ we all had the burgers and they were done to perfection. And of course, the little sweet treat at the end of the meal is fun :) Thanks Lyn65!

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always fantastic. They change their menu often but keep favorites on there. The servers are all amazing.

My kids loved the steamed buns, though I thought it was high priced for one bun. I got the fried chicken because I saw a review how good it was. The meat was tender, but not as flavorful as I thought it would be
The mushroom pizza was good, as well as the burger.

Menu is smaller yet stellar! I wanted a burger and the regular burger is a double. The double burger is a triple!!! It was super delicious and a great value. My friend ordered a vegetarian rice bowl. Turns out the rice was cauliflower and what appeared to be...and tasted exactly like Orange Chicken was...CAULIFLOWER!! You NEVER would have known the difference. Super healthy meal but with guilty taste buds. The perfect dining experience. The atmosphere was a bit noisy but what restaurants in Minneapolis aren't??? It had a beautiful, low lighting ambiance and a fully stocked bar and a view of the kitchen in progress at the far end of the restaurant. Everything was just right. How tired I am of overblown chain restaurants with menus that look like an addendum to the encyclopedia britannica. This small, wonderful place has a concise specialty menu that is simply delicious and service that will make you feel right at home. This is my third time visiting and it won't be my last. Bon Appetit!

We went to Lyn 65 for brunch and had a wonderful experience. Food was great and the kids loved the waffle with lemon curd and blueberries. Topped the meal off with little sprinkles ice cream cones. How cool was that?!

Our party of 6 had a wonderful dinner on Saturday and our server was so good with giving us time to talk but also got our drinks and food served in a timely manner. Our group has very diverse taste and we all found something on the menu that we chose to eat. Thank you to the chef staff for their great food choices. We will be back again soon!

The food is always very good. I have to try to not let the poor ambiance color this.
It sometimes feels like a sports bar, which is appealing to many, but to try to have dinner and have a conversation is often made very difficult by the noise level.
I continue to come here never-the-less.

What a Great night at Lyn 65! Our Hostess Kim was very sweet and accommodating. Thank you for allowing our party of 8.5 to sit together Kim, we really appreciate it! Caroline our server was Awesome! She's friendly, knowledgeable, and always available for the questions we had. I was impressed as she remembered our order without writing it down, and it was accurate! Way to go girl! Your mind is working very well. Caroline's suggestions were spot on. Every meal was perfect, so perfect we ordered more of several items. We must have behaved well because Caroline brought us all an ice cream cone after our meal. Thank you for a great night. We'll see you again and maybe we'll bring the rest of the family...

Server not very warm upon the mention of a dietary restriction... that was disappointing! She did not seem overly friendly, and not very sincere... too bad.
The guy was awesome! Reddish hair? Came up from the kitchen to clarify dietary need. Nice.

The Thai noodle dish was hot in a way that the dish was somewhat tasteless! We did not finish it, but the server was not engaged enough so we decided to let it go (whereas I would normally let her know.)

Oh that’s all. Thanks

From when we walked in the door until we left the service was "Top Notch". Our party got to the restaurant before our reservation time and they were able to seat us early. We added a person to our group and they were able to accommodate us right away. Our server gave us great suggestions since this was our first time at Lyn 65. It was a WONDERFUL experience!!

Before I tell you about my brunch experience at Lyn 65, let me first say that I am a big fan of this place. I've been there 3 times for dinner and it has always exceeded my expectations. But brunch was another story. It began with being seated at a deuce next to the restrooms and facing the open kitchen, clearly one of those unwanted tables. My wife ordered coffee which came to the table quickly, hut my Wicklow coffee, a variation on an Irish coffee, took 10 minutes, which is how long it took for our server to take our food order.
The menu is very limited, with no vegetarian options or anything other than heavy, comfort food options. Not even an omelet. We placed our order and waited. And waited. I got to watch the two cooks struggle to keep up with the volume of tickets for an hour before our food arrived. A few minutes later, food began arriving at the 8 top next to us, a group that was already there when we arrived and which included two little kids and a couple of seniors.
The food, sadly, was not worth the wait. The bacon was burnt. The croque madame was made with so little ham and gruyere that it was like a bread sandwich. Nothing was hot. The breakfast potatoes are just fried diced potatoes. It is definitely not the same experience we've had there in the evening.

It’s the second time out of the 3 times I’ve been to this bar when the bartender has added extra drinks on the check that I never ordered. I highly recommend looking at your check carefully and making sure your bill is accurate.

We were seated right away using Open Table, even though there were people waiting due to how busy the restaurant was that night. The food was excellent and our server was exceptional. It's a bit pricey, but don't mind paying for great service and food.

One of my top 5 faves. Best for smaller groups as many of the tables are 2 tops. We had 3 ppl, and the table for our 6:30 reservation lingered and we ended up not being seated until closer to 7:30. But the restaurant paid for our round of drinks while we waited, apologized for the wait profusely and we were not in a hurry. GREAT service from the front desk to the table service. Food came out FAST, and our second round of drinks was waiting for us at our table when we sat down. Hands down my pick for best burger in the Minneapolis area. Love the cones for dessert. I recommend this restaurant to everyone!
