    It was a fun evening out with family and we tried Mallards - a new place for us. Our waiter was attentive and kind. Our food arrived quickly - and was truly delightful overall. When one dish went beyond the understanding of "Minnesota spicy", there was a quick response to remedy the dish with an outstanding result. We will definitely return!

    We went for the Friday Fish fry and they had some nice options of Walleye versus Cod. My husband and I were sharing and the server was wonderful and split the cole slaw and overall was very personable. It was also his birthday and very much appreciated the free desert. We will be back!

    This was a surprise Valentine's Day gift for my husband as we visited the Stillwater location years ago and I wanted him to enjoy himself again. The crab cakes were delicious but felt there should be an offering of 4 for two people instead of the 3. But the rest of our meal and the location were great. We enjoyed our special evening and my husband loved the coffee martini. The only down part is I think we lost my hubby's favorite hat. Thanks again and we hope to come back soon.

    Nice Valentine's Day meal for our family. Everything was very tasty -- everyone satisfied with their order. Plus we got the bread and brussel sprouts as an appetizer and those were delicious as well. I also had an old fashioned which was very good. We'd definitely go back!

    Walking in from the parking lot you arrive a a hostess desk with no one at it and if some one is standing in front the f the tiny floor sign you miss their indication to make your way to their other desk in the middle of the restaurant. Great vibe from the restaurant. Waiter seemed new and was not overly attentive, we had to ask for our drinks a second time. Management came around and asked if the waiter was doing a good job… seemed odd to be asking that early on in the meal. Food was delicious walleye and the Oscar medallions though the stake was rare and not medium as requested. We will be back I’m sure.

    Old Red Robin near Southtown Mall Bloomington. Very busy Sat. night and noisy maybe due to Groupons offered. Nice bar area, much better than Shakopee location. Food good, service a bit slow, very busy. Recommend. Will try on off night next time rather than weekend night.

    Mallards hit all the marks for our dinner table of three. The food and drinks were great, and the service was prompt and friendly. Of special note, the floor is roomy and comfortable, and the sound level is low -- a rarity in restaurants these days and a blessing for anyone who wants to carry on a conversation!

    There were nice options for either breakfast or lunch on a late Sunday morning. Within group the items ordered included the shipwreck, wild mushroom scramble and two hot Tennessee sandwiches. Sandwiches were not greasy, but the piece of chicken was quite small. The sandwiches were also not spicy.

    The food was very good except for the Espresso martinis. I'm not sure if the y mixed in citrus vodka by accident or if that is just how they make them. My daughter and I couldn't drink it. It was Christmas eve and they were busy but our server didn't bring out our daily bread appetizer or my husband's salad until the main entrees came out. He said he didn't want it but she said they had already made it and set it own. Personally, I think it should have been taken off the bill but we didn't want to raise a fuss especially since our server seemed overwhelmed. My entree didn't come out until 10 minutes after the rest of the table and that was after I asked for it. I'm hoping this isn't a normal occurrence because the food is very good. It is definitely worth giving another try.

    The Feast of the Seven Fishes was excellent. However, the courses were more substantial than I had anticipated and each new course arrived before we had quite finished the previous one. I wish we had had more time between courses to be able to give each course the attention it deserved. We were on a tight schedule, but had been told we should easily be done in an hour and a half. I feel that was insufficient. I would like to try this again next year, if offered, but would allow more time for spacing the courses.

    I love Mallards! The menu selections are varied enough for a group to dine and find something they'll enjoy. Shrimp and grits is my favorite! For nor being at fill capacity, the noise level was up there. Service was good, but a little slow. Could have been the two large tables of parties. Will cut them slack for that. Overall nice experience.

    We were 4 friends having lunch at Mallards for the first time. We were all impressed with the service which was attentive but not over bearing. Our food arrived promptly and each order was fresh and flavorful. One of the group ordered the Tennessee hot chicken sandwich and commented it was spicier than he thought it would be but enjoyed it none the less. We will definitely be back.
