Chanhassen, MN has a shortage of finer restaurants. I think that is why they are still in business. The décor and carpet, and overall ambiance is so stall. We ordered coconut shrimp and it was disgusting - way too much breading, greasy and smelled so fishy you wanted to gag. The steak bites were chewy and grizzly. We didn't come... More

The waitress was very attentive & the meal was well paced. They even gave my mom a free dessert for her 90th birthday! We had ribs & they were tender but probably over-priced for the cut (spare ribs, not baby back). It is expensive but nice for special occasions.

Be careful not to confuse Axel's with Axel's Bonfire. The menu's between the two are much different. Axel's is higher priced. The restaunt was beautiful. The high back booths were very nice. The food was expensive but good.

I loved the place and would highly recommend it to anyone. Great specials but limited to surf and turf. Have i mentioned how much i loved... More

Wow, Axel's used to be so good. Now the recipe appears to be high prices with poor service. Many better places in Chanhassen.

Axel's has never failed to deliver in service and food quality for us. We go every couple months for Happy Hour, and maybe once a year for a full dinner as it is not inexpensive. Their brunch is delicious but only served on Sunday mornings. They have a special Mother's Day brunch we have gone to the last two years,... More

Bull Bites at Axels is a must..Or at least it use to be!..I would suggest serving it just on a bed of shredded lettuce with a few tomato halves and cucumber pieces..Keep it simple definitely NOT the onions saturated in oil..It defeats the object..Maybe other customers will disagree..This is my take on delicious Bull Bites..

Great food and drinks in a relaxed up scale restaurant. The service was outstanding but not rushed. Food was great and portion sizes were nice. Very nice selection of wines and beverages. We will return often. Not loud or noisey. We could talk very Easily

This restaurant has a full featured bar and ambiance to boot. The food is good but would say it's a bit more on the refined side and pricey. Not many "cheap" items on the menu is geared more towards finer dining I'd say. Having said that now you know if that's what you are looking for then this is a... More

We have been at Axels for many years. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the town. Their foods are great but the service is getting worse - no greeting/unattentive, slow service even not that crowded. Also She gave us a bill with some drink we didn't order! Axels needs to change and their service is going down!
