My wife and I visited this restaurant tonight. The atmosphere is pleasant. The service is good. The food is very average. I had the Supreme Chicken Breast. It was OK. My wife had the ground sirloin steak, which was also OK. They have a salad bar which was very average for this area. The prices they charge are more typical... More

This restaurant serves very good basic food. We attended a large banquet here and while the staff pulled off the event very well, the food was nothing more than basic good. Roast beef (or ham), carrots (overcooked) and potatoes. Salad was very small and also very basic. The atmosphere is great as it overlooks the lake, but having eaten here... More

Best food around Lake Minnewaska. Services are good and wonderful salad bar with popovers. Don't be put off by outside appearance or a little outdated decore. Food is fantastic.

The food was amazing and the service was great. The outside looks nice and it's nice to see them grilling right in the dining room. The decor needs to be updated. It looks like something out of the 80's. It's roomy and quiet enough to have some good conversation.

I went there to play with my band. The owners hypertened his hospitality and made sure we were well looked after. The food is fantastic, the staff are attentive and the drinks are stiff! :) A great time was had by all! I'd go back in a heartbeat!

So, in the years since my last review, I have returned to the Minnewaska House several times. Little has changed, although the days/hours it is open are fewer. A coat of paint outside has helped, but there are no upgrades to the exterior. And the interior seems unchanged as well. During a recent visit, it was obvious the food quality... More

The servers were many and were very attentive and helpful very nice staff I don't know why they don't have a website... More

The Minnewaska House is located 3 miles west of Glenwood, Mn on highways 28 and 29. Very easy to find. This is a family style restaurant with casual feeling. The owners and wait staff are very friendly and helpful. They have specials from every night. Suggest trying the "Erickson Pork Chop".The wine and beer selections are average, but remember this...

This place has long been on the Minnewaska scene, but we found it to be nothing beyond ordinary in every respect - food, atmosphere, etc. Positive points for a good salad bar. But something about the place and the whole dinner experience were depressing.
