REVIEWS OF Lynde’s Restaurant & Catering IN Minnesota

Rick Henry

Excellent breakfast and service!

Catherine Hauan

The food here is amazing! Their buffet is full of deliciousness. I am not usually one for a buffet, but this one is truly a treat. The wait staff is very nice and attentive. The restaurant is clean. This is an all around nice place to take the family.

Darrin Jones

Great local diner. Good food, good prices.

terry pernsteiner

We’ve been coming to this place since 1987. It was an old truck stop before freeways and has evolved into a restaurant and catering business. Breakfasts are amazing , With the hugest pancakes you’ve ever eaten. The omelettes are big and delicious too. I highly recommend it as a sit down traditional breakfast and other meal dining spot. It’s always got seats open if you’re open to sitting at the breakfast bar.

Shawn Betland

Great waffles called joeis speical

Jim Cogelow

Good comfort food. B and I had hot turkey sandwiches. Came with real mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing and cranberries. Was very busy, so the kitchen was a little slow. Server was friendly. We'll be back.

Jason Lempola

Amazing food! Was not expecting the large portions of food. Downside, we asked for a high chair and came back with a booster, not sure if they have high chairs or if they were all being used, just difficult with a busy child who wants to climb.

Growlers Garage

Always delicious food and great service, even when its busy.

Melanie Halverson

They have great food, especially the chicken. Very nice people that aim to please.

Vinh Tran

Food: decent - good 7/10 Service: mediocre (non consistent) 6/10 Environment: good 7/10 Price: fair 7/10

Leandro Ramos

We got here at 11:00 and got seated at 11:10. Our server brought our water and coffee. Then, she took our order. And said that it could take around 30 minutes. (So far everything was good.) We asked her after 45 minutes of waiting,(people that ordered after us, had their food already) then she comes back and says the order never went out and asked us if we still wanted to eat here!! We considered it rude and seriously not good. Also, we asked if we can get our food rushed, and she replied"i dont know if we can do that". Then after my wife stood up and yelled at other server, they came over with someone else and said they would be taking care of if. After 15 minutes waiting our food came. It was warm and good. Also, when our server brought our check, they took 1/2 off and our friend's the same. That would've been necessary if our order was put in in first place. Second, Im rating 1 star because of the bad service, eventhough they discounted our bills too, I if go to a restaurant, I dont expect the restaurant to give me discounts like that because I have the money to pay for it!! Our server apologized at the end, but never said,Im sorry. It wouldnt matter if this happens 1 in a million, customers expect a great service. Thank you.

Christina T

They have a good selection of meal choices on the menu. The staff is really friendly and ready to help. The establishment is always clean and organized. They have great specials throughout the week. We always have a great experience here. Would definitely recommend for a family dinner.

Jerry Clifford

Great food friendly staff

Kerry & Julie Smith

Great ambiance and friendly service! With excellent food too.

dewey crosby

I had the chicken tenders... Very good. Came with soup or salad... Fries and a few other options including baked potato. She asked if i wanted it loaded and i said "of course" thinking it was included. But she didnt tell me that it was .75 for butter or sour cream, .75 for cheese, .75 for bacon... So, the 5 stars are for the food...

Allan besner

Lynde's has always been a good diner restaurant with better breakfast food than anything else. Last time my wife and I tried the chicken delmonico and it was salty and not too hot. The fries were piping hot and the coleslaw was out of a prepared food service pack and was marginal quality. I have never been disappointed with the burgers or breakfast food before and I have been comming since the mid 90's I have also had the ribs but I have never tried the crab legs and most likely will not. Good all-around diner just don't expect too much. The service is always good and friendly.

Ralph Watschke

Good but they charge extra for fries with your burger.

shilohjackson1024 .

I just wanted a fruit cup. They don't have one. I've never been to a restaurant that doesn't have fruit.

J Whelan

Was our first time here. We were here for a 65th wedding anniversary meal for my grandparents who reserved the back room. The service was great, the food was good except for the deep fried green beans that came with the steak, they tasted like burnt cooking oil. Their buffet looked great, and Id come back again to try that!

Lucky Phousirith

I was quite impressed with the biscuits and gravy. It's such a simple dish, but so few places get it right. The sausage was very present in the gravy giving it a nice richness. The biscuits were standard, and the gravy does well to elevate them. Hashbrowns came extra crispy as requested, and they elevate them by offering to add cheese and onions to them, which is a nice addition that I hadn't been offered before. I ordered my eggs over-medium, and what I received was over-easy which was fine enough to not send back since I mix them with the hashbrowns anyway. I felt it was priced appropriately. My girlfriend had the french toast combo. She stated that it was good, but felt underwhelmed by the amount on the plate for the price. She also ordered eggs over-medium and what she received was even more runny than mine. The restaurant is clean and has a very comfortable homey feel. The restrooms are clean and decorated with a sort of cabin feel without being over the top and tacky- although I felt the picture of the buffalo across from the toilet was a little awkward as it felt like it was staring at me pooping. Over-all I had a good experience. My girlfriend a little less so. Parking was available, and we arrived at about 1:30pm which seems to not be a super busy time.

Gretchen Dedrick

Delicious all you can eat crab legs on Thursdays. Soup or salad, choice of potatoes and endless crab. Amazing service too!

Carl Brewer

This place is worth a visit. They serve big portions for reasonable rates. Constantly well kept and with awesome atmosphere. Will visit here again.

Sue Schwartz

Great food. From Prime Rib to Hot Beef sandwiches with mashed potatoes. YUM! friendly stafff.

Anthony Bretto

Good food and good portions.

Amber Ooley

The food was okay. I love the entrance with all the older beer cans. I opted for the BLT, and the bacon could have been crispier, but they do serve breakfast which may be their specialty. Cozy atmosphere, and tasty beer!

william yarco

Hashbrowns over cooked.worst I've ever had And when I told them,there was no offer to fix. Basically pay the bill, see you next time. There won't be a next time.

Joanie Eskew

Great comfort food small town feel !

Walker Smith

Delicious food and great service every single time.

Bob R

Great food, love the Club House sandwich

Paul DiLorenzo

Always good food and great service

Joe Dancho

Always a good, solid breakfast. I haven't been for lunch or dinner so can't speak to that, but the staff are very friendly and like I said, the food very good. They catered our wedding 10 years ago and did a fine job there as well.

Owen Kleberg

Great food and stsff

Toni Carlson

Lynde's is a wonderful family restaurant, with home cooked favorites and delicious salads. My favorites is the crispy BLT salad, and hot beef sandwich! Cozy atmosphere, with great servers!!

Jaime Colburn

My husband had what he called the best biscuits and gravy he'd ever had. The veggie skillet was delicious as well.

erik toft

I love to have breakfast here!!!

Kiara Bryant

There’s a way you can play people on all you can eat CRAB LEGS. Our service last night at Lynde’s: Our server was great but all the crab legs that you can eat and with Lynde’s not being packed last night and we didn’t close them up we got screwed. The first round of crabs legs was not HOT!! And we were a party of 15, and that price that’s being charged we were PLAYED!! Second round they were a little warmer, third round I guess they felt that we were eating to much! All of a sudden they were cold and salt of the outside of the shells, you could see the white salt and very salty to taste. I sent mine back and they sent me a whole new plate which was lukewarm, which was saltless like before. So their practice is when you eat to much, they start serving you salted down crab legs. I will not be spending my money here anymore.

John Williams

Food was pretty good. 4 adult entrees + 4 soft drinks ran $55 w/o tip. Pancakes are HUGE! Next time I'll have to check out the bar. My wife said the ladies room was clean.

Robert Venturella

Good family restaurant with good food and service. Hot sandwiches are delicious, with homemade meats and topped with gravy! Buffet is a great deal, with good food and good selections (when they have it). Good for groups too, as they have a nice back room. Bring the family, or being everyone you know!

John Walker

Service is always fast and friendly, with generous portions. I had biscuits and sausage gravy with eggs and hash browns. Yummy! There was a group breakfast in their larger space reserved for such groups. I always heard good things from my friends about Lynde's over the years. Great local eatery and caterer.

Deborah Kellen

Great food and plentiful, good prices, great service.

Richard Boyd

Lovely pork chop.

John Guertin

The food and service here is amazing! Home cooked meals. Awesome burgers! Can't go wrong here!

Jill McMahan

Perfect. Just what I needed. The staff was really nice too.

T Wright

My endless crab ended very quickly! I got there at 7:45 and before even 8:30 they told me and my friend there were no more crablegs. Never heard of limited crab legs on a suppose to be all you can eat crablegs. I barely got full. Wow

Michelle Ranum

Hidden gem! Doesnt look like much from the outside, but we go often for Burger night on Tuesdays and have NEVER had anything but genuine and sincere hospitality.

Sharon Chafin

Food was great waiter very attentive

Virginia Nelson

I've had one of the best dining experience here. Well cooked food and brilliant service! Recommended!

Rj Hoppy

I used to visit fairly regular, the last few visits the food was mediocre, todays meal not good at all. A little spendy.


I had a great breakfast and the staff was friendly. I had the eggs benedict.

Josh Chamberlin

Friendly people good food... waiter could be a lil better not a huge deal at all. I will be back for that crab

Schemendra Latchman

Bacon cheeseburger and broasted chicken were good. Fries were crisp and well flavored. Overall good experience with pleasant wait staff. Very reasonable prices as well.

Tanya Troska

Lynde's Restaurant is a great local must... great options and huge portions. We gladly use their meeting room space every week for our business networking meeting because of the great service and food!

Wendy Antonson

Excellent good service. Good food. Yummy

Solomon Gould

Lynde's Catering was an absolute JOY to work with! Every aspect of the experience was positive. Sarah went above and beyond not only in the preliminary stages to ensure all questions were answered but also on the day of the wedding and reception. Having worked with multiple other vendors in the past, I can tell you from direct experience that I would hands down recommend Lynde's over any of the other vendors in the area. Thank you Sarah and Lynde's for helping make the evening as beautiful as it was! Dr. G

Jeremy Feuk

Took my girlfriend here for dinner they had their buffet line great food

Eric Eizenhoefer

Omg! This place is awesome! They should really consider giving away free sweat pants with their all you can eat crab legs! I'm so full because it was delicious and the service was 100% awesome.

Derrel Fisk

This is a pretty average place. not much variety on the menu in the sense that everything is just something on the side of meat. Went there with some family and just got a salad myself. But to be fair I'm pretty picky and I don't eat meat. So there reviews are much higher than mine but just sharing my opinions here. My fiance loves the hash and her dad got the same thing and they both seem to enjoy it very much. looks like the soup is pretty good too and they only had one kind that day which was creamy potato soup but my fiance's brother seemed to like it quite a bit. I personally wouldn't go there but if you're just looking for a quick bites to stop and you like classic American food and give it a try

Jeremy Clow

Food is good on the overall, but their Saturday night buffet is to die for.

Brent Schultz

Perfect diner fare. Definitely has a small town feel to it.

Edward Monette

Nice atmosphere good service great food

Jessica Riley

Great pancakes


Food is top notch. A fun small home town feel to it. Their pancakes are HUGE. Decently priced and their skillets are to die for.

Kaycee McAlpine

Excellent breakfast! We didn't have a wait on a Sunday morning at 10am!

Justin Long

One of my wife and I'd favorite places to grab brunch on the weekends. The skillets and the biscuits and gravy are my favorites

Betty Breeland

Loved it great food

Melanie Lee

Tuesday night Burger and Beer special. Hubby and I can eat out for $20 which includes a generous tip!

Ron Terpstra

Great new breakfast spot

Jessica H

Amazing service. I wish the parking was nicer.

Melanie Beauchem

My boyfriend took me here to take a break from Christmas shopping last Saturday. I loved it! The service was excellent and everything we ordered was delicious. I highly recommend the baked potato soup and the philly sandwich. Homeade food and homey atmosphere. Might be my new fave

Kathy Line

The Hot Meatloaf was delicious and the sweet tea is just the right touch. The Black & Blue Burger was delicious as well. Good place for the older crowd.

Hugh Byard

I used to go to the restaurant for great food, now you have sit through some kind of circus an have wads of soiled pieces of napkin thrown landing next to your what I used to be great food . No basketball behind the counter PLEASE! FOR THE CUSTOMERS THIS IS NOT FUN OR HEALTHY. But keep asking for my ID.

Paula Erickson

Mixed review. My husband had the all you can eat buffet & said it was great. We were a party of 7 celebrating a birthday. 3 prime rib orders. 1 never arrived & when it did it wasn't a nice piece. That was for the birthday girl. I ordered the broiled walleye which was to be done with lemon & butter. No lemon or butter but some odd seasoning. Same with the salmon. Our waitress was sweet but new & should have never been a waiter at a party of 7 on Sat night. She was clearly out of her element & didn't know who ordered what & forgot 1 prime rib! The restaurant didn't comp anything so I asked & then they removed $10. Will not go back. Make sure the menu is accurate & update your website menu.

Joseph Smith

Great every time all the food is fabulous chef Ramsey has nothing on them

Steven LaMere

Very good food and service. Love their thick cut bacon.

Mikayla Nemitz

Great food and amazing people

Robert Christner

Always busy on the weekends so try to go during the week. My favorite is the hot turkey sandwich with gravy.

rangerookie .

Lived her my whole life and never been in there, so decided to try it with my girlfriend. The service was horrendous, we had to go ask for menus after 10 minutes, and then five more to ask if we wanted anything to drink. It wasn't even half full in there,and we were in sight of employees, so idk why they were slow. Luckily, the food was pretty good, but I will probably never go back.

nicholas langseth

Good food and service.

Mary Hayford

Absolutely amazing! Came for the unlimited crab legs on thusday night! We walked in and were seated immediately got to the table and the waiter William came over right away and got us our drinks and food within 5 minutes. We will be back lots!

John Moroni

Lynde's Inn in osseo has great food at good prices! The service is always friendly. Love that they have a different special usually every night. Like Tuesday night, I have dubbed it "hamburger Tuesday!" I usually bring in a bunch of my friends and Neighbors. You get a huge burger with great fries and a beer or Coke all four only $7.50 on Saturdays they have an awesome Buffet for only $12.95. You can't beat this place for casual dining.

Elle Bea

My hubs and I went to Lindes this morning after perusing for cars at Hyundai. We loved the decor, and the service was fantastic. Loved how they left coffee at the table. The steak and eggs were delish but the potatoes could have been crispier. My boo said he wasn’t a fan that we couldn’t substitute the break for fruit or an extra egg (not good for the gluten free), and he said he pork chop was small af. We recommend!

Tina Moore

Great breakfast food extra large portions great service little

Annie Derrick

We have breakfast here every Sunday morning and they are consistently great! Best waffles I've ever had and everything else also wonderful. The staff is very friendly and always fast. My week wouldn't be the same without a visit to Lynde's.

Theresa Neises

Great food but SUPER large portions. Might be smart to split a breakfast. Pricing is on the high side but this is probably due to the large portion size.

Mark Zubert

There's a reason the locals pile into this place every day. Just great food. Check it out.

Brandon Vreeman

I've eaten here a couple times. Both have been really good. The food isn't flashy, but tastes great. Think of dishes that your grandma would cook (that's assuming she could cook, ha ha.) Last time, I had a skillet meal, and it was delicious. Enough to bring food home for another meal.

J Swartwood

Serving up great American trucker fare at a great price!

Christine Schoen

Chuck Williams

I called in 8 times in a row just to be hung up on by a machine. I was on hold for about 3 minutes each time, when suddenly I was told “GOODBYE” by a machine. I’m pretty sure you just lost a customer!!!!! G O O D B Y E ! ! !

Paul Wiinanen

Love the food at this place. Great choices

Ryan Sturges

One of our favorite breakfast spots! Grab a seat at the counter and have a great conversation over breakfast

Beth Plank

Very friendly service. Good prices and great food. I go with at least four other people every Sunday for breakfast for years. The waitress even has all of our drinks memorized!

Joan Nyakundi

My best friend was in town from Europe. He was craving all-you-can-eat crab legs. Lynde's did NOT disappoint! Perfect crab legs. Not soggy or skimpy. They kept bringing them out. The biggest plus?!?! REAL butter to dip them in! What a delight! I will be going back soon for sure!!!

Quitman Kyles

The best pancakes, service, and bacon in the NW Metro. Everything here is unbelievably delicious!

Luke Patterson

Love this place and the best pancakes around

Paul Cook

Cinnamon and caramel rolls are humungous. And very good!!!

Tom Wood

Had the Crusted Walleye. Very good.

Mary Jo Jadwin

Had the buffet and it was great. Staff was friendly and we felt welcome.

Maryann Schreiber

A friend and I went there for breakfast. We had just a normal breakfast , I had coffee she did not and our bill was $ 35.00. Needless to say, it was our last time we go there. Way too much money and the food was just ok...

Brenda Rood

Home cooking done rite

Rob Byrnes

I've been too Lynde's a few times now and must say the food and service is extremely impressive. Now keep in mind I like food with seasoning but not buried in barbecue sauce and they do balance it nicely. The sauce on the ribs is excellent if not too much. I have the sauce put on the side to ensure the right amount. Also recommend the potato soup! Wife was sick so she order it. Everyone at the table tried the soup after her face lit up and ordered thier own bowl.

Rhonda Olson

They have the best employees.And excellent food.We eat there at least once a week.❤

Curtis White

Staff, and food are fantastic. Really fun and filling experience.

Jerelyn Levinson

Great food, great prices

Pamela Pietrzak

We had our 50th anniversary party catered by Lynde’s and everything was excellent. We got wonderful comments from everybody. Only bad thing is we didn’t get the leftover food to take home.

thereadysetfan Last

Everything was too salty, I couldn't taste anything else. The last time I was there it was fantastic but today just didn't measure up. Disappointing.

Sloane Hochgesang

Our FAVORITE breakfast place around. Food and service are usually really great. Matt is always working and super friendly. 10:30 and noon on Saturdays/Sundays are the busy times so don't go during those times unless you are willing to wait a bit for seating/food.

Stephanie Weiss

Busy Sunday brunch but not too long of a wait. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere. I got the Charlie Brown Benedict with side of bacon. The hollandaise sauce seemed to be breaking a bit but tasted fine. Order the bacon crispy.

Paul Janssen

Great food ! The daily specials provide excellent value. Check out the beer can collection. If you're indecisive have the hot Turkey sandwich. They make a great bloody Mary . When they're busy things really slow down.

Donald Werle

Prime rib was great. Wine liked the ribs The service was very superior. The waitress made us feel like family, late on a Friday. Drink specials are a bit odd, but we did try something new.

David Rickard

Love this place. The food is really good. Specially the pot pies. Good portions for the price.

Sherrill Ridenour

The food and service has always been awesome.

Maggie J

Great place the food was amazing home made and a lot we were not able to finish it all. Server Chris was great. I would definitely go back again kid friendly. Only problem I may have had was my omelette was not hot as I may like it to be.

Lydia Henze

Breakfast was so amazing and service was great!

Nicole Schroeder

Family friendly. Great deal on Tuesday for burger and beer.

Tina Robinson

The wait time was 40+ and wasn't that busy poor service, food took to long to come out

Delicious food, friendly staff. Small town diner feel

Kevin McCormick

Good food! Locally owned.

Tony Diehl places better. None. Quality, fast, incredible product with incredible service. Recommend to anyone, and everyone.

Alina Juvel

Went here for a date with my husband on a Tuesday night.smelled burgers outside in the parking lot and I don't normally order Burgers but I just had to try it-especially when I found out that the Tuesday special is $7.50 for a burger fries and beer. Which is an amazing deal. The burger was actually cooked to medium, which is uncommon these days in restaurants. It was delicious and the staff was very nice and prompt. Would recommend to anyone. They just need to replace some lights outside to make sure that their doorway is lit up nicely

Terese Tamminen

It was ok...we went for a late lunch at 2 p.m. and the food was ok. Nothing special

Rosanna Hudgins

All you can eat crab legs, about $35.00! Comes with your choice of potato, soup or salad. Bar drinks, cider, beers. My work colleagues and I go here every other month and for celebrations (No work related talk allowed!). Service is attentive and pleasant. Worth the drive to Osseo!

Sarah Akins

The food was really good. The server seemed a little distracted and not as attentive as I would have liked. Overall it was good and I will definitely go back.

Donna G

1st time here. It was really good! Interesting and different options as well as delicious traditional American choice. Will definitely be back!

Lee Mickle

Food was excellent and the service was even better.

Renee Hollermann

Service was a little slow but the breakfast was amazing! They don't give you spoons which drives me nuts. Even if multiple people get coffee they give you one spoon for the table to stir, but my parents use sweetener and I don't. Silly, just give us spoons. Will be back.

Kathy Anderson

Great food and service!!
