Stopped for a business dinner. Enjoyed a nice casual atmosphere that was lakeside. Food was ok. Portions were good with reasonable pricing. Our server was a bit forgetful - had to remind her about our appetizer as she forgot to put it in. Also forgot...More

We ate on the deck with about 20 people... it was a blast! The drinks and the food were great. Not fine dining mind you - but when you combine good eats with the views of Lake Minnetonka - everything just seems to taste better!...More

Great outdoor patio with nice outdoor menu. Can't beat the deck overlooking the lake with good food and great drink specials. Menu inside is better but not as good as people watching on the patio.

You can't experience Lake Minnetonka without a visit to Maynards in Excelsior. Whether you come by car or boat for a leisurely lunch or dinner and enjoy the lake atmosphere. Eat at Maynard's once and you'll be back.

Maynard's deck is the place to be to enjoy sun, water, good food and drinks and people watching!!! Service is very good. Food pretty well prepared. Nothing particularly daring, but we enjoyed our meals while soaking up sun and watching everyone else enjoying each others...More
