Unhappy – Crappy bar service. If you are not very patient and very quiet, the bartenders will not serve you at all.

Food quality is lousy, Not worth the money, Definitely not fine dining! – Can you believe they let people SMOKE in they're so called family friendly restaurant.

I had the pleasure of ordering their all you can eat crab legs, this was a BIG mistake. The first order was a full order, but it was medium warm and the legs were soggy as if they had been cooking all day long, there was no crispness to any of the legs and the meat, when there was meat, was stringy. My second order they brought out contained just two portions of legs, again warm, soggy, and stringy. I ordered a third helping hoping the first two were just flukes, but this time I only got one portion of legs. Remember when I say portion I mean just the five legs that come together. When the waitress walked by (she was good) she said, "is that all you got, I am going to order you another order, I am sorry." I thought this fourth order would be better, nope, I received just one more portion of warm, soggy, and stringy crab legs.

I can't believe I actually had to pay for this lousy meal. I should request a refund.

***This place is a complete RIP OFF !!!***

Filet and Walleye Filet were disappointing, service was average – My first experience with Axel's came at the Tavern in Loretto.and it was disappointing. The place had a saloon/dance hall sort of decor, loud and gaudy with a weird white tile floor but that would have been O K had the steak been great. Unfortunately it wasn't. I ordered the Land and Lake which was an 8 ounce filet cooked rare and a pan fried walleye filet. The filet was dry and mealy and didn't generate one drop of juice.The texture of this steak didn't lend itself to a rare presentation. Now I know that a filet is not the juiciest cut, but really. Maybe I should have tried the Porterhouse at $38, nah.

The walleye was a perfect cut with a nice thin breading but it was sitting around for several minutes after it was cooked and/or not fried in a hot enough pan. It came out cool and the breading was not even near crispy. So much for their specialty.

Although this wasn't a cheap plate, $32.50, I guess you get what you pay for. Next time I'm looking for a great steak in the western burbs, I'll pay the ten dollars extra per plate and try the steaks at Gianni's Steakhouse in Wayzata.

Better than average food, but not by much – Good enough place to eat and comfortable, but prices seem too high for the overall product.

Service was good, but we felt like we were almost bothering them.

Flame-cooked meals and unusual decor are the draw at this uncommon suburban spot. – In Short
Baby boomers on double dates and families with teens wait in line for this standout eatery, a sibling of the local Axel's dynasty. The shadowy dining room has a Southwestern theme. Chocolate-colored walls, a black ceiling and wall sconces make it smolder, but a tumbleweed chandelier and hanging bull sculpture lighten the mood. Wood-fire pizzas, like the Cajun chicken, are popular starters. Entrees include a tender prime rib and the signature pan-fried walleye.

I can't wait to go back! – We didn't have reservations, but still got great seats in a nice booth. I had pizza (delicious!) and the best martinis I've ever had! I rarely seem to get great service, but our waitress was great: not hovering too much or rushing us; timely with refills, etc. The decor was unique, but I liked that it was dim and somewhat romantic. Upscale without being too pretentious, and we didn't feel out of place even though we weren't dressed up. Some of the entrees seemed a little expensive (that's why I went with the pizza) but otherwise a great place!

You've gotta go – First trip this February was great! Waitress was very friendly and knew the menu, checked on us, but not too often. The food was excellent! Bull bites are a must try and the walleye was the best I've had. My girlfriend got the quarter roasted chicken, she loved it and for $8 probably the best value on the menu.
