OpenTable members should be aware that if you're offered a table on the deck when you arrive, your reservation will be cancelled and no points awarded. We were not informed of this "policy" ahead of time, so we accepted the outdoor table as that's where we were hoping for. Like many restaurants with outdoor seating, they don't allow you to request that on the reservation. No problem with that, but cancelling the reservation if you don't eat in the dining room? I contacted OpenTable and they quickly confirmed that this was not an acceptable policy, and reinstated my reservation and points. Otherwise, the food is great and the atmosphere is very cool. Oh, and the deck is the place to be on a nice Summer night. Service is decent, but sometimes forgetful. I won't go back until they formally change the policy, if there actually even is a formal policy or if that's just what the young staff that night thought made sense. They definitely have not been trained on creating good customer experiences.

They had us next to an area roped off for a private party so it was quieter than being in the big mix of noise and people.

was nice to sit outside on a nice day the view is very scenic. Service was terrible. Ran out of ginger beer at 4:30 in the afternoon so couldn't make the drink we wanted. Waitress didn't put in our order until we asked about it about 45 min to an hour later. The food was so-so and quantity for what it was wasn't worth the price. If all you want is a nice view and fresh air on a nice day and a beer then it is ok otherwise find somewhere else.

Enjoyed the trip to Psycho Suzi‘s for an early Father’s Day with the family. The food was really good(*), our server was great and we had a good time.
Ok - so here’s why the food get’s an asterisk. It had been a while since we had gone there, and I was surprised to find a really limited menu. Pretty much limited to a burger or pizza. Nothing wrong with that, it’s just not what I was expecting (or planning) for dinner.

I’ll definitely go back; when I’m in the mood for a good burger and tater tots.

Overall it was great. The service was good, but had a long wait for refills - our server was super busy. Drinks were a little pricy for the quantity delivered, but - very tasty!!

Patio ambiance is always amazing - great decor and views. Service was terrible. We waited 15 minutes after being seated without a waiter coming by and had to go seek our own and they claimed “they thought we were just enjoying drinks.” We’ll - you can’t sit there without a host / hostess seating you for dinner. Poor service continued all night - very disappointing.

We had a large group of easy-going gals and the overall experience was amazingly slow, and disorganized. It took our server 20 minutes to get us all a glass of water. We all came expecting to have multiple drinks but was so dissatisfied with how long even one took that we didn't have a chance.

Our server included the deposits for the glasses when he charged many of us, slowing down the closeout process and dragging out our slow, sober experience even longer. The server didn't seem to understand or care that he was working at a snail's pace and losing out on rounds of drinks and their corresponding tips.

Great brunch spot! Bloody Mary bar was very good - could use a few more treats (bacon, shrimp, variety of olives, etc) to put in the glass but overall highly enjoyable. The service was very friendly and every staff member we encountered clearly enjoyed their job and was having fun. Can't wait to go again - I bet the evenings are a blast there!

This is one my favorite restaurants. I was disappointed that the large outdoor party we had planned had to be inside. That was disappointing. Reservations apparently don’t work for the patio. This caused drama for our party as it was a gorgeous day and most of us were planning to spend it outside.

This should be a 'maybe recommend'. This place needs major updating. The patio is dirty, food is so so and the drinks are overpriced. The view of the Mississippi River is nice.

Psycho Suzies is literally my favorite place to go when me & my friends get together for drinks, laughs, and damn good food. I will admit the drinks weren't mixed as well as they normally are on our most recent visit but it was also hands down the busiest I've ever seen it.

The server greeted us - brought drinks and took our order. We never saw her again until she brought the check. Table runner brought the food and just put it on the table - asked for more water and he said he would tell the waiter. She never came or maybe he never told her. We had no napkins or enough silverware - had to get those from an empty table nearby. Had an issue with the food - but just had to go with it because we couldn't find her. It wasn't like she was busy and zooming by us - she was just not around at all. Couldn't get a second round of drinks or more water because we couldn't find her. We ordered the pizzas. It was okay - nothing special. The Thai one was good if you like things quite spicy. Disappointing meal..

I made a reservation and even called and said we wanted outdoor seating and she said no problem. When we came they said they wouldn't seat us outside because it was too busy and i said but we reserved on outaide table and the hostess said they don't take reservations for outside. Okay. So we were seated inside. Our waitress was terrible. Like TERRIBLE. She hardly ever visites our table, barely spoke to us and when she did she didn't listen. We qould ask her for something like more water and she'd just walk away and not come back. Weird. The food was alright. Pizza and brown sugar babies were really good. Got a burger for my 5yr old and it was so bloody we wouldn't feed it to her. Told our waitress and she didnt say anything other than "can i get you some parmesan for the pizza?" We were like wtf no. She didnt offer to recook the burger or being anything else. So ny 5yr old just had tots. Then she charged me for it. I had to ask her to take the burger off. It was not a good experience. We were super excited to go and sit outside before my hubby heads to the airport and it was awful

My friends and I meet each Tuesday night to check in with each other. Each week is a different place around Minneapolis/St. Paul. We look for different criteria (good food, good service and a quiet ambience) Psycho Suzi’s met all of that and more, we will definitely be back!

1st visit, waitress tried maybe too hard...we were there(seniors) for a no rush brunch....she asked us before we looked at the menu for drinks, and then our meal choices...felt rushed...water was not offered....looks to be a fun place in the summer. I also tripped and fell in the parking lot and chipped my tiki mug :( but was not seriously hurt :)

This was our first time there for brunch. The food was very tasty, from pizzas, ham, fruit, chorizo hash to salads. There was something for the kids as well as the adults. It was nice to be able to sit outside overlooking the Mississippi. We love the tropical decor and fun atmosphere. We will be back for brunch. Also, the patio is dog friendly.

Went for lunch with family on one of the first nice patio days of the spring. Patio is 1st come, 1st serve, but we were still able to snag a riverside table within 10 min and had a lovely time.
