Eagan >Jensen's Supper Club
The Real Thing: A Supper Club to Die For.
My partner and I have dined at Jensen's about five times in the past two years, and have been impressed each and every time. Most recently, however, we chose Jensen's as the spot to host a large family event over New Year's 2008, where we had a group of 12 in attendance. We were served promptly and with the kind of grace that you expect of a real supper club. Our server, Linda, was extremely skilled as are all of the service staff at Jensen's, and our entire dinner went off perfectly. Jensen's is an excellent place to host an event for a group because the layout allows for privacy. We were seated in a an area that was architecturally closed off from the main dining room, so we felt cozy and warm, and even though it was a large group, the setting was intimate. The food was incredible, beginning with the mandarin salad that stands out because of its fresh citrus, then on to the popovers which are melt-in-your-mouth good. Several of us had the prime rib, and my partner had the sirloin steak. Without exception, we were impressed with the quality and flavor of the food. The sides were simply excellent.
The wine list at Jensen's is outstanding. My partner had a delicious red with his sirloin, a perfect match. Dessert was their signature raspberry bread pudding. This is a bread pudding that puts all others to shame with its delicious delicate crust, through its creamy and warm center that is bursting with raspberries. Dinner at Jensen's was the seminal event of my family's New Year Holiday, and there is no other restaurant that I could trust so completely with the details of an event. As long as I choose Jensen's, I know I can relax because they will take care of my guests. That feeling, that you have provided your guests with a truly excellent dining experience, is a wonderful one. This is without a doubt my favorite dining experience in the Twin Cities.

In good style!. We certainly picked the right place to take my brother and his wife as a gift of gratitude for the many years they spent giving TLC to Mom. Sitting at a round table with plenty of space between us and other guests was a perfect setting for an evening of fine dining with family. The food exceeded expectations. Our server, Chris, did an outstanding job of selecting wine to compliment our evening. I plan on returning frequently and soon.
Food is Classic and Better than Average but Service Below Average.
This is your classic supper club. Think 1950's or 60's and you wouldn't be surprised if Frank Sinatra was reincarnated and walked in the door with the RatPack. The food won't disappoint and the classic popover is terrific (with honey butter!). The walleye is excellent.
I was a little disappointed in the service. We ordered the 'before 6' specials and she pretty much gave us minimum service after that. She visited the table right next to us and walked past us several times without so much as a glance, failing to refill our drinks for many minutes.
I called the manager to complain and he was understanding about the situation and promised to address it.
Best Prime Rib, I've ever eaten !!!. Jensen's Supper Club is a fabulous dining experience. The Prime Rib which have 24 ounce cuts is outstanding. It is the best I have ever had and it's not really all that close. The service is very good at Jensen's. The prices are high but that is to be expected with the quality they serve. They also give freshly made popovers with meals with some sort of sweetened butter-very good. They also have delicious desert options. If you are looking for a classy meal apart from chains - this is a great place too go.
A throwback to the time when supper clubs dotted the Minnesota landscape like marshmallows on Jell-O..
With moody lighting and crimson walls, the '50s ambience is reminiscent of a Vegas lounge. This is the kind of place the Cleavers would have taken Wally and the Beav on their 21st birthdays. The seafood platter of lobster, broiled shrimp, cod and tender snow crab makes for a simple yet substantial dish. In true supper-club style, there are plenty of steaks, from porterhouse to filet mignon, prepared to order.
excellent service and food!. This was the best anniversary dinner we've ever had! The waiter Owen was phenominal, he really took care of us. This food cannot be beat. It was our second trip to Jensens and it just gets better. The coconut shrimp was the best we've ever tasted, our dinners were the Ribeye and Parmisan Walleye, and once again we've never had it better. Jensens has easily become our favorite restaurant in the cities! And if you go, hopefully you'll get Owen as a waiter!
Jensen's: A place to celebrate?.
We had a few problems with our anniversary dinner at Jensens Supper Club last night.
DO NOT use the online reservation service. It states the reservation isn't confirmed unless a reply is recieved. I had to call the restaurant to confirm as no reply was sent. I also stated on the reseration that we will be celebrating our anniversay. Jensen's didn't acknowlege it in any way!
We felt rushed throughout the meal. After the entree, our waiter, (who already had our bill in his hand) asked if we needed anything else. We didn't dare to ask to see the dessert menu or a cup of coffee.
In a positive note the martini's are outstanding!! The coconut shrimp appetizer was very good, as well as the prime rib. The lobster tails were rubbery and overcooked.
The bottom line: Jensen's has great potential. I hope we had a rare mixed experience.
Great food, nice atmosphere. My husband and I ate there on New Year's Eve, and I have to say, the food was fabulous. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting. The only con was that at 35 years old we were absolutely the youngest couple at the restaurant (we even got carded!) The waiter was a bit snobbish - probably thinking we'd stiff him on the tip since we were just kids :) But, the hostess was extremely friendly and all in all we enjoyed the experience.
Plenty of Food, Unless You're a Whale. Some friends and I tried out this place recently. We ordered appetizers in addition to our four dinners based on the last review written on this restaurant stating that the portions were somewhat small. This couldn't be further from the truth, we had way too much food. The portions are sensible, if not too large. The atmosphere was a throw back to the supper clubs of yore. The live music on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday nights is a welcome treat. Not to mention that the food is superb. We will definitely be back again and again.
Quality not Quantity.
If you want lots of food this is not for you.
The quantity is small but the food is top-notch.
We had the Lobster tail and Filet mignon special.
My last job allowed me to try a lot of this style of rest. and Jensen's is one of the best.
The lobster was excellent and the filet was with the best. Be careful! A group of four can easily go over $150 without a blink.
The atmosphere is excellent. The booths are great. It truly is fifties style done right and MAINTAINED! Check it out.
