So sorry to hear Tanner's will be closing. I go there for breakfast every weekend and the food and service has always been excellent! Not sure why they are closing, but if they are opening at another location, count me in!

We have been going to tanners for a few years now, usually twice a week. Most of the time we have been happy with the service. However, tonight we were informed that the best waitress that we have had there was let go due to working 3 jobs

With a reservation, we brought 20 relatives to Tanners to celebrate a couple of birthdays. They set us up in an area all our own with several tables pushed together. It was a buffet. Great food and great service. We weren't the only

What a joke of a business! I have been in the restaurant industry for years and normally give owners and staff a lot of slack because it is such a stressful fast paced industry but I have had enough. The food is just awful and

It would seem obvious that an establishment that wants a good reputation would want to focus on great service such as treating customers with respect and providing good food. This establishment does a very poor job on both. I'm 32 yr old gentleman who has been coming to tanners for the last 2 years because its close. This establishment by far has the most rude and classless set of female bartenders I have ever seen and this seems to be a continued trend going on and on and on. I've heard so many complaints in my communtiy about this bad service I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking this. All we ask is for at least one good female bartender there and not the immature, unprofessionalism that continues. When this place can get its focus back and puts the customers first perhaps myself and others will come back some day.
Also the tall blonde working evenings at the bar will serve you if you are on steroids and have tattoos. A 32 yr old guy from Anoka here who reviews restaurants in the area.

A group of 8 of us ate at Tanner's. Three people had steaks - dry, not tasty and definitely not cooked as ordered. The all you can eat shrimp is not worth ordering especially at the price. The baked potato tasted like it was baked in the morning and kept hot all day and then it was served. The only meal that is worth mentioning was the penne pasta and that was okay. The waitress was timely but does not make up for poor food.

This is my last time going to Tanners Station. I dont understand how this restaurant can get good reviews at all. I have frequented a multitude of times and each time I am left feeling cheated and hungry. Since my last experience I had a filet mignon that was overcooked and tough I decided to order a hamburger. I didnt think one could mess up on a burger but it was a greasy mess. The meat was not flavorful at all and I am suspicous about the rodeo burger using its BBQ sauce to cover up the fact that it is tasteless. It took the waitress 20 minutes to take my order and bring me a beverage. It then took another 45 minutes for me to get my lunch. The waitress kept coming back in 10 to 15 minute increments to assure me it was only going to be another minute. Finally it comes and much to my disappointment as it wasnt worth the wait. I keep telling myself i will never go back to such a place. I really would suggest others find a better place to eat as well. There are choices.

Tanners is such a cool & cozy bar! They often have live music so it makes the space very fun! There is also a large bar in this space!

We were just in there this last weekend. Had a large party, approx. 45 ranging in age from 7-45. We called in about 3 hours in advance. Having worked in the restaurant industry to put myself through college, I knew that you can't just walk in with a large party during the lunch hour and expect to be seated right away. We gave ourselves plenty of time to have such a large party order and have the food made. The great thing about this place is that they make the food to order. It's not a quickie drive thru service like you'd expect at Burger King.
The food came out perfectly. The gals who were working really seemed to know how to handle a large party. We just let them do their job and we did ours, handling our kids. The food was absolutely delicious, and their service was above and beyond what we could have expected. We really did appreciate how accomodating they were with such a large crowd. I would definately recommend Tanner's again, but if you have a large party like ours was, do call ahead with reservations, it is a sit down restaurant.

We had a group of 30 in Andover for a function last Saturday. 4 went over to Tanner's at 12:15 to inform them of our large party. Hostess was aloof & honestly didn't appear too bright-she stacked menus for 15 mns while tables were set up but then didn't seat the 4, kept them standing. 2 other tables in dining room!!

The rest of our group arrived & were seated after ANOTHER 20 mns?? Got 2 separate tables, 2 waitresses. They took orders, we waited 20+mns for apps, soups, etc to arrive & 20-25 more for lunches to BEGIN arriving. Delivery of food =CHAOS & confusion-not to mention a VERY LONG wait for 2/3 of the party. 3-4 items came at a time with 10+ mns in between. Some never got their food, some got wrong food but kept it as it was SO confusing. Waitresses never told us there was only 1 cook day, didn't acknowledge or apologize for anything-and there was NO sense of urgency in the slightest sense regarding anything. This was an opportunity for the restaurant and servers to make $$ they must typically not be prepared for at a Sat. lunch rush-which should have been a good thing. A large party with very few other patrons is manageable in a restaurant,not here.

Talked to the owner days later-she was silent..!?! No people or communication skills whatsoever! Said she'd talk to the waitresses. THIS was AS frustrating as the dining experience & insulting! Classic 'How NOT to respond to a customer concern!" I hope alot of people read this!

The busboy shuffled around. 2 more tables came in during the entire 2 hours we were there- this speaks volumes of the NON-popularity of the restaurant! And servers were NOT maxed out in efforts to other guests. This is the type of party where you get "assistance" from others. The manager literally steered clear of us, didn't come & check to see how things were, apologize or ANYTHING! Nobody assisted with this DINING DISASTER! At ANY restaurant a Mgr would have checked on a large party! Other reviews have the same complaints.

Cons: waiting waiting waiting for every SINGLE step of the process of dining out! poor customer service from everyone!!!

While I wouldn't suggest going out of your way to find Tanners, if you are in the area, you might think of stopping in. They have all you can eat crab legs on Wednesdays, always steamed to perfection (and I consider myself a bit of a crab leg snob). I live right around the corner from Tanners, but it's generally only a place I stop for crab legs or a drink. I've tried the other food and it's nothing to brag about. The service is fine, again, nothing to rush in for. They do have a pretty hip bar, generally pretty packed- they offer pull tabs as well as several TVs to catch the local team on. All in all, if you are near Tanners, you might stop in... but don't go out of your way to find it.

I used to be a regular at Tanners Station, No more. The service has really gone down hill and the quality is sliding( sometimes good and as of late declining ) Brown lettuce in the salads, Overcooked steaks on my last two visits (ribeye and new york) The ribs have changed also, Not what they were the last time I enjoyed them. I wonder if there is someone new in the back of the house ???. Anyway, I'll give them another chance because it used to be alot better. I'll write another review after my next visit.

This is my first review for a restaurant but just wanted to let people know how great the steaks are! I personally have the Petite Terloin Filet wrapped in bacon. This one always comes out the way I want it. I have tried the pastas and have to say that my favorite is the Shrimp and Crab Linguine with their new Wine list its perfect! I will be coming back again and again to Tanners.

Tuesday night is Steak night at Tanners. My wife & I try to make it every Tuesday because there is not a better value in town! For $11 you get a GREAT steak, potato and salad. We also enjoy Thursday's special - 2 for 1 Pasta. Try the Thai Peanut Pasta - there's nothing better. The wide varity of Crown Royal choices also make dinner that much better. The freindly atmosphere and wide variety of food choices and flavors keep us coming back. Their support of the local sports teams is also a bonus. I would HIGHLY recommend giving Tanners a try.

My husband and I decided to stop in and have dinner here. We'd been here in the past and liked the food, but it had been a while since we'd last visited.

My husband's steak had to be sent back. The bacon on the outside of the tenderloin had spoiled, it smelled terrible and looked even worse. The steak itself once he took a bite was completely bland. After telling out waitress (who was very nice about it) he received another steak with again inedible bacon, and slathered in sauce, which the first steak didn't have at all. We believe the sauce was an attempt to cover up the poor quality of the meat, and my husband said it tasted slightly freezer burned to him.

My dish, the pesto linguine was better although it was kind of bland and the noodles were completely drowned by the sauce.

We won't be going back. The steak my husband said was the absolute worst he's ever had in all the years of dining out, and it cost $24.

I believe they have changed their name to Tanners Station, but it makes no difference. The food is excellent and the service is even better. I always order the walleye and my husband really likes their Reuben sandwich. Last time we ate there, we were kind of in a rush and our waitress really helped us out. We were eating our meal within 15 minutes. Highly recommended.

I have been to Tanners Steakhouse with my husband for date night and with our whole family and we've had fantastic food and the servers were very personable and did a great job making sure we had what we wanted. The food had great flavor and we've tried the steaks to the pasta to seafood. All Great! My favorite is the brisquette quesadilla. FANTASTIC!!!

My spouse & I go here for dinner at least 3 times per month. This is without a doubt, the best prime rib I've eaten. I've heard different views on their other entrees, however anyone who has tried their prime rib agrees with me. It does tend to get loud on the weekends, but during the week, it can be quite romantic. Also, on Thursday's Tanner's offers 1/2 price bottle of wine. I love this place & the management & staff treat their customers as very welcomed guests.

If you are looking for a hot spot in the northern suburbs, step out of Maple Grove and you will find Tanners. For the residents of Andover and surrounding area this is the best restaurant you will encounter. Show up once, show up twice then come three times they will know you by name. That is how great the service is. They will know you by name and make every effort to make sure your experience is all that you had hoped for and them some. Some of the best staff and always excellent food. I go to Tanners for the service, but I have come to reconize the daily specials keep me coming back time and time again. If you want to go somewhere where everyone knows our name, Tanners Steakhouse is the place to be. Have an awesome steak or a cimple sandwhich, they have it all.

Service was awesome by Mary Kay, but the food and atmosphere was well below average for a steak house. Very loud, almost like a sports bar atmosphere in the formal dining area. Not a place to go for a romantic dinner.
