Perkins was too busy, so we went to NaKato Bar and Grill for breakfast. Bartender was awesome! Great service! Great breakfast! Not far from the Hotels along 169. Well worth the trip. Will definitely go back there the next time I stay in Mankato.

The Nakato Bar always offers great food, good prices and a good time! The waitresses are friendly and work hard - the service is great! We've been there often with family and friends and still seem to run into more people we know! It's a quaint, local bar/restaurant that never disappoints! Give it a try!

Breakfast is excellent. The bacon is out of this world. Evening specials a good deal. The chef puts together unusual combinations for a great burger. The patty dunker is sooo good. Never had a bad meal of service here.

This place always is a good experience for diners or just a good place to unwind with a beverage and friends. Friendly vibe and the best hot beef commercials in the area. They also serve up great dinners and sandwiches. It is a good place to visit with each other while enjoying a drink.

Best Beef Commercials in North Mankato and Best Sports Bar. Never a bad food experience regardless of menu choice. Highly recommend lower North Mankato for fantastic food, atmosphere and outdoor patio experience.

Great food at a great price plus friendly service! The omelets were huge and very tasty. The bloody mary that my friend had looked very good and the tap beer was good and cold!

Two of us stopped in on a Friday evening before going to a movie. First time here. Nice little outdoor patio, but smokers were present so we opted to sit inside. Definitely a bar, but lots of windows so it is open and bright. The food was delicious. We ordered a tap beer and vodka tonic. For food we had... More
