We went to Lake Elmo Inn for a graduation celebration. We knew it was high end but great food and Diane provided amazing service! Very accommodating to our young children. We will return for more special occasions.

About the restaurant
Comfort food with an upscale twist...

In the heart of downtown Minneapolis, appropriately located in a beautiful underground space, you'll discover Hell's Kitchen, an employee-owned restaurant known for its damn good food. Join us for breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks Tuesday through Sunday, and enjoy REAL comfort food made by chefs who care, described by food writers as "unique but not fancy; interesting but not fussy". Almost everything is made from scratch, from our award-winning peanut butter to our unique dips and dressings, winning us over 67 "best" awards as well as accolades in Gourmet Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, Midwest Living, and other national magazines. And bring the kids along... you should see the cheeky notes they write to us!

"Rather than rave on, let us just say if you're in Minnesota and want to wow your tastebuds, go to Hell's Kitchen. It is inspired and inspiring." (Jane & Michael Stern, NPR)

Food and mocktails were great. I took home the Broiler chicken dinner for my family. They enjoyed it. My favorite thing about this place is that there was no Shellfish on the menu, so I could eat just about everything here, except the kimchi pancakes (because shellfish paste) I look forward to adding this spot on my personal list of safe places to eat!

My party of four agreed that the restaurant temperature was cold…. The food was excellent but we ate in a hurry to be able to get back outside to warm up. Our server was very good but seemed preoccupied. I felt that he might have been relatively new and was trying to remember everything.. overall we enjoyed our experience and would definitely go back.

We met our extended family at the Maple Grove location due to being the half way point between our homes so it was very convenient. I know there are several restaurants to choose from, but this jumped out to me first due to having a great experience years ago in the Eagan location. The food was delicious and fresh with a great variety for the buffet. My family and I enjoyed everything, including being able to hold a conversation without shouting like some places we have been. We will be back again for sure!
