Great food, somewhat socially distanced at bar. Would have preferred to see a little more room between groups sitting at reserved spots at the bar top. But otherwise a good dining experience.

One of the best servers I have ever had....my husband and I were having a very difficult conversation and the server knew exactly when to approach, ask questions, etc. I don't remember his name but I hope you can figure it out and tell him "thanks for being so respectful and insightful". I have been in the service industry my entire life and this guy is a gem. ps- fried chicken was great and ice cream cone a fun surprise

My wife and I love this place. We always have a great meal. This is our "go to" solid option. Recc: fried chicken, cauliflower, hanger steak, lamb hummus. Cocktails are great, many local craft beer options.

My husband and I went for dinner and sat on the patio. Staff were wearing masks as were patrons who were coming in and out of the restaurant. This was our first time at Lyn 65 and were very pleased with the food, service and the whole experience. We'll be back!

Food was great! Steak with duck fat French fries?! Sensational. Outdoors on the patio - nice to be able to reserve outdoors, versus first come first served. Much appreciated. Complimentary soft serve chocolate cone was a nice touch at the end of the meal.

Everything about this experience at Lyn 65 was excellent. Great Old Fashioned with the burger. The burger is my favorite, and every bite is delicious. The fries are hot and crispy. The duck fat makes a huge difference compared to convention oil frying. Simply delicious. Keep up the good work!

I reserved a table on open door, it was confirmed and when I arrived it was unfortunately closed and a note read they are only doing takeout.

I’m not sure if this miss is on open door or Lyn 65, but it was certainly a let down.

This was our first time at this particular restaurant. I had made reservations, as it was a Saturday night, and I was glad I did. The service was excellent. Very friendly waitress, gave us plenty of time to look over the menu and decide. We both ordered the walleye sandwich. It was OK. Nothing extraordinary. However, the french fries are excellent. The small ice cream cone at the end of dinner was a pleasant surprise. I would go again, but try something different.

It’s a very nice place to meet up for cocktails or a burger. The burger is one of the best around. I ordered the chicken dinner and it was ok. I know they say their chicken is really good, but for me it was just ok. It is gluten free fried chicken, so that’s a plus for those who want to avoid that. Overall it was a nice time. I’m not a fan of their booths, but that’s my own issue with having back issues. This is a fun place to hit up every now and then, and I highly recommend the burgers.

Amazing cocktails, delicious mussels with green chorizo (YUM!!) and killer burger. My only issue is that they do not have many gluten-free options on the menu, so I couldn't order what I really wanted to get. Hence the 4 stars.
