Pangea Cafe

Reviewed By Michael W - Saint Paul, Minnesota

What a wonderful little cafe in a small town. We were seated promptly and had attentive but not intrusive service throughout the meal.

One of us ordered a (very large) Cubano sandwich - the pork had a wonderful flavor to it and was just right. It basically melted in your mouth. The other one of us had a caprese salad with a very tasty oil and vinegar combination (the oil and vinegar used are always the wild card with this) and good but not great tomatoes.

Overall a very satsifying meal

Mocha Monkey

Reviewed By John M - Waconia, Minnesota

This is by far my favorite coffee shop in the US. Always friendly, great atmosphere with a fantastic selection of beverages and food. The atmosphere is an old home made into a coffee shop with space up stairs and on the main level. There is always a place to go to if you want to sit by yourself or meet with others. I love this place!

Lola's Lakehouse

Reviewed By BluegirlMinneapolis - Minneapolis

I really like this place - it's beautiful and in a great location right on the water. Service was good, but I have some advice regarding lunch. My sister & I both ordered the tuna salad sandwich. It was served open faced on a slab of baguette with some lettuce, crumbled egg, and kalamata olives on top. There is no dignified way to eat this thing! I ended up cutting it in half and eating it with a fork, with everything on top falling off in the process. Sissy had the gluten free option, which she said seemed stale. The tuna itself was bland and rather tasteless - could really use some zing. Even pepper couldn't save it. On the other hand, Mom had the fish tacos, which she said were excellent. So Chef, I would completely rethink the tuna - go back to multigrain toast and add some relish or red pepper, please?

Starbucks

Reviewed By Chris Z - Waconia, Minnesota

Been there many times always a Great Product, but can be understaffed at key times of operation ie weekend mornings, having said that the staff is great and I think the "no tip' Target policy, should be reviewed.

Iron Tap

Reviewed By Momof2fromMN

Iron Tap was fastly moving to the top of our favorite restaurant list. Unfortunately tonight it moved to the bottom of our list. We loved being able to go to the bar for a drink while waiting for a table. My son was very disappointed that they removed the pulled pork sandwich from the kids meal. He has begged us in the past to drive the 30 minutes to the Iron Tap so he can get a pulled pork sandwich. Then I ordered my favorite sandwich - smoked Turkey BLT. When it came it was completely different than the past. It was not a piece of Turkey as it was in the past but Turkey lunch meat and there was zero smoked flavor. Others in our party were disappointend in their burgers.

If I am looking for a good greasy burger, beer and some appetizers with a great atmosphere I go to Hoppers! Friendly people and great food!

Ground Round Grill & Bar

Reviewed By PKDenton - Denton, Texas

We sat on the non-bar side. We noticed that the booths in the bar all seem to be new (and blue). On the other side, they look like they've been in disrepair for a long time. There are holes in every booth for the booth seats. It really looks sad and does not make you feel like the place is well run. If you have a first impression of a restaurant - this is not a good one. It makes you think that other things are not taken care of either.
Service was very friendly but a hamburger was $12. For that price, the hamburger should be much better than average - it wasn't. It was dry and overcooked and just not special at all. We will not be planning to come back unless there are changes.

If you can ignore the over abundance of beer signs and the cracks and tears in the vinyl booth seats, you'll find great homemade food at very reasonable prices. There are lots of beers available, many on tap, and bartenders who know how to pour them. The mixed drinks are heavy on the booze, too. The cook hails from New Orleans where he learned how to cook Cajun dishes and he does an EXCELLENT job. Nowhere else in Minnesota will you find Cajun dishes so expertly prepared. The appetizers and sandwiches are not your typical diner food. Dinners are hearty and offer a lot of variety. Desserts -- not so much. Good for everyone including children, families, and friends to hang out. Located a 30 second walk from the Waconia Theatre, Who's On First is a great choice for dining before or after a movie. Say "hi" to Sue and Lionel.

This is a popular place for Chinese food either take out or dine in. The place is always busy around the dinner hour with repeat customers which is a good sign. Their buffet has a wide variety of chinese food mixed with some American favorites like fruits and salads. Price is reasonable ,especially for the take out. Staff is always curteous.

D' Vinci's

Reviewed By dskefamily4

The pizza is really good and the sandwiches are great. They also have great cheese bread. We have always ordered and picked up so I have not eaten in the restaurant. The location is a little odd, but worth finding for your next pizza or sandwich cravings.
