My husband and I were expecting a burger joint-steakhouse, however, upon entering for a late night dinner we found the atmosphere a little bit swankier than we expected (we were the only guests in jeans). The service wasn't great, we waited a while for our initial greet and drinks. The food was great, excellent, juicy burgers.

We visited Mode's this week - very 70's decor and the wait staff were very friendly and efficient. Most of the group loved their meal, I did not. Ordered the fresh walleye broiled and was not impressed. Next time I'd get the steak.

We wandered in here for Lunch the other day - it was a cold blustery day and we wanted to sit and have a relaxing meal - we were not disappointed. The waitress was very friendly and very attentive. She gave us some great recommodatons about the menu and the food was excellent. The portions were large - the prices were very reasonable - and the selection was great. We tried a brie with their special sauce - that was outstanding - their soups were great and the prime rib was excellent. The thing that impressed us the most was the server- she really took pride in the place- she did a great job of "selling" it and when we told her we had a group that meet monthly for dinners she asked if she could get us menus to take back to the group and told us about their meeting/banquet space downstairs. Her postive, helpful attitude was great! We definitely will be back!

If you are a meat eater and like a no frills place with local atmosphere you will enjoy this place. Reasonable prices, good cuts of meat, generous portions and very friendly staff all make for a great dinner.

Set in the heart of downtown TC Mode's has been around since at least the 70's. The servers are very good and well seasoned. The food is classic steak house fare with good fish as well. Saturdays are fun with a all beef hot dog bar and all the fix ins.
