“Great Friendly Service”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

If you are looking for comfort food, this is your place. If you have never had Walleye before, get it here. Cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. I the servings are very generous which resulted in me not having any room left for dessert. I LOVE dessert and the dessert at this place looked fabulous. This was a great find!

“Romantic Restaurant for Special Occasions”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

The moment you enter the restaurant, you feel you have come to an elegant place. The service is warm and personal. Food is of excellent quality-though certainly not cheap. Wines are some of the best available in an restaurant of elegance and sophistication-especially the more expensive wines are marked rather decently. Rather romantic atmosphere for a quiet dinner. Wanna impress someone without burning a hole in your pocket? They have an excellent offer for dinners on Sundays and Mondays-where for $56 per couple, you are served a four- course meal and a bottle of house wine-certainly not the equivalent of Opus One or Cakebread Cellars that are also available but reasonable- a not-to-be-missed offer while it lasts as I doubt if they make any money on this deal and is perhaps meant to increase the footfalls and give you a taste of elegance all around to tempt you to visit again.

“Very pleasant atmosphere”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

The food here is usually good. Prices have gone up up. My husband and I have gone to Axels many times over the years however not so much in the last year as it's just gotten too expensive for what it is. The front bar area is the best place to sit or the new area in the back. The room off to the left of the bar has the old supper club feel. Needs updatig.

“good place for a nicer meal”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

This is a very nice place to celebrate. Expect to spend a little more for a moe upscale dining experience. We enjoyed the meal and everyone had something different. Worth a try when you want a great meal for a special occasion.
