Enjoyed our drinks and meal prior to the Vikings game At McKinney Roe. Our server, Alyssa, was amazing! We were a table of eight and she handled the various comings and goings at our busy table with wit and humor. Many of the breakfast options were delicious (corn beef hash, breakfast sandwich) but my salad (Brussels, cauliflower) was just ok. Loved the live music and the group Skol chant :)
They were understaffed, took forever to see our waitress, then I had to flag her down to put in our food order, then had to flag her down again for more drinks... I had to go to the bar myself when my drink was made incorrectly.
There was an event at the Armory, I would have thought they’d be better prepared for the crowd.
Food was ok. Nothing great about it, but nothing to complain about either.
Incredible food - loved the shrimp risotto and wine selection. That said, the service was horrible. We had to ask for water 3x before it was delivered, ask for a second glass of wine, ask for silverware and we sat for over 20 minutes before our waiter came over.
I would highly recommend the shrimp risotto! Great, attentive service!
Super busy because of Vikings game but staff was awesome and food was terrific.
Our first time visiting here. Went before a Vikings game, super busy, glad we had reservations! The live music was fun! My husband’s steak sandwich was the best he’s ever had (and he’s had plenty! 🤣). Service was a bit slow, but I’m sure it’s due to a game night.
The food and atmosphere is great before an event and just a casual night for dinner. Love the bar area. It's very energetic on game days, but just the right amount of lively on other nights. Service has been GREAT!!! Even when they are super busy!
Yes, the service was outstanding, the manager (Niles) has a good team and everything appears well run.
I had a party of four and was a little disappointed to be seated on the balcony level, because the main floor seemed full of energy and beautiful. I was delighted to see so many gluten free options on the menu, though, and the food was really good. Will definitely be back!
Great location for concert at Armory, service level was sub-par, food is tasty.
Reservations for 6:15, seated at 6:40. We were on time for our reservations. What's the point of a reservation if you have to wait 25 minutes? Once we were seated it was 20 minutes until our server acknowledged us.
I had the salmon and it was well prepared with a wonderful chutney!
We were pleasantly surprised at both the service and the food quality. We plan to return again.
Pre Vikings game get together. The food was great. Friendly service and they had music. Very festive!!
Really fun spot to hang out and get brunch before the Vikings game!
Been here multiple times. Nice location and always good food. Wednesday evening and they were short handed for sure on the staff. Could see only a couple wait staff had way too many tables so took long for drinks etc. Food is always quality and drinks are well made and average price considering location. Their potato salad is underrated. It is super good. Skip the fries and get the potato salad. Some of the finest in the city.
Great waitress, excellent tasting food. Very accommodating staff and management. Good live music.
Great to sit outside
Vikings football game
very nice menu---terrific service---good fish and chips---wonderful cocktails===pleasant surprise
We have been going to McKinney Roe for several years. It has improved between each visit even thought it was one of the best the first time we dined there.
A great stop on a summer night. Even though we sat at the bar we still felt like we are part of the outdoors. Service was excellent drink selection and menu was good. Although we ate off the regular menu I would go back for happy hour food at a later date.
Pre- theatre dinner party. 5 ladies 4 different entrees all very good! The wait staff are very good
Excellent food, great waiter who steered us to the best food on the menu
We had a wonderful dining experience! We came work a work lunch and were seated on the patio - great ambiance and fantastic service! I ordered the Turkey & Brie sandwich and it was delicious!!
Good food. For not many people in there it was really loud. Service was ok but our server was just going through the motions. How do you not have steak sauce to offer if you have steak on the menu? Just a thought.
As long as they invite me with them, then I would happily recommend McKinney Roe.
The ambiance of the restaurant, especially upstairs where we were sitting, screams classy restaurant. The menu, however, reads more like a pub. Our service was adequate, but given how quiet the place was that night, it should have been stellar. We were a casual group, and not in a hurry, so the frequent delays weren't really an issue we fussed about, but it was noticed and commented upon at the table. In the hopes these issues are just 'young restaurant' things, I do intend to go back again in a couple of months in the hopes they've been worked out.
I ordered the filet mignon medium rare and it came out medium-rare. It was perfect. I ate it so fast my picture only shows what I left behind which was the tasty parsnips and fries.
Really enjoyed having a good neighborhood restaurant. Loved the fish n chips and chicken. The starter meat wings were awesome. Nice portions and not overpriced. Fun cozy atmosphere!
My husband and I had dinner there prior to going to the Guthrie on a Tuesday night. The staff was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. The noise level allowed us to enjoy the music but still talk to each other. I had the shepherd's pie and he had the fish and chips both were excellent. We will definitely consider this as an option next time we are downtown for the evening.
I chose McKinney Roe based off the menu on Open Table. When we got there the items we wanted to order were not on menu. Several 2nd choice items were not available. So we ended up with 3rd or the choices so that lessened the value of our visit
Fabulous! Can’t wait to return! Killer French onion soup followed by delicious scallops.
Neat atmosphere, but prices are high for what you get.
We had burgers and fries and they were awesome. The waiter was on top of everything and very polite
It was very pleasant. Staff were extremely courteous, especially given our late arrival time. Our seating wasn’t the best but an upgraded bottle of wine and amazing meal made it all the good. Fantastic time for our second visit, there will definitely be a third
Only thing that was dissappointing was that my reservation was for six, and they were only prepared with a table for five. I double checked everything and all of my confirmations had six people. The food was awesome - they even made the croquettes after we had told them we went there specifically for those!
Great dining experience in a very attractive restaurant. The food and service were both great, and the menu selections all sounded delicious. I recommend McKinney Roe for a date night, or for a small group.
Great atmosphere and food. Brought my wife for a wonderful valentine's day dinner. Our first time there and loved all of it. Food was amazing.
