The parking lot was nearly full and the place very busy, but we were seated (party of 5) and served very promptly. The servers were knowledgeable about the food and had helpful insight. One of them was a trainee, but it was hard to tell which one was in training - they both were excellent and engaged. That tells me... More

We came here for a meeting and were put in back room with ample room for conversation, no one that far from anyone else. Never being there before, waitress suggested pasta and when I said I don't eat much, said a half order would be a good idea. I came back two weeks later and order the special pasta takeout.... More

Food is pretty good but timing is really off......barely had salad when food came. Food was ok tonight but has been better. What prompted me to review and the low score was cleanliness. The floor in restaurant was NASTY. Straws, wrappers, pieces of food on the floor. PLEASE invest in some carpet sweepers and train the staff to maintain the... More

The Grizzly's in Mankato is an overall good experience. I enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant. The decorations are fun, nice wall paintings and a overall warm cabin feeling. The service was amazing the times I went. The waiters and witnesses were knowledgeable about the menu, on top of everything and very polite. The food is very good. I have... More

My sibling and I took my father here for an evening birthday celebration. We reserved the private room ahead of time. We started with the Wisconsin cheese curds, which were excellent. I ordered a wood-fired house sirloin with optional garlic butter mushrooms, fresh vegetables, and a side salad. The steak was perfectly cooked. Our meals were accompanied by several small... More

Patty Melt and Mango Margherita. The Patty Melt was very good; however the Margherita had little flavor. It was disappointing.

Great atmosphere and well themed. Not to noisy. Our server was very on top of anything we needed checked in with us often if we needed anything. We had some guests show up later and she was there to serve them promptly. Wife said "Pasta could have used a little more sauce. It had great flavor tho." And I had... More

Made one quick visit for lunch, good atmosphere, crispy chicken wrap was excellent with the chicken corn chowder soup. Prices reasonable and the seating was spread out and quiet enough for business conversation. My group was well pleased with their food also. I will be back.
