Had Sunday brunch with my family. It was super crowded so we had to use the valet service. The food was pretty good and view was great from the deck in the back.

When I got home I noticed that my lanyard on my car keys was missing. I have

The only thing good about this place was my drink and even that wasn't the best I've ever had. Had the Walleye Fish and Chips. The Tartar Sauce was glorified mayo and the cole slaw had no seasoning at all. I can forgive mediocre food

Great spot in the summertime!!! Can't beat it. Good Happy Hour specials. The dock for boating is great and very easy.... Great food.

Always a fun place to go! The food is great, I love the buffalo chicken flatbread! I have dealt with both friendly and attentive staff, as well as the occassional rude waitress. When it gets really busy, sometimes we've had to wait for a while for service. I've had more good experiences than bad. It is my favorite lakeside restaurant in the area, so I will definitely come here again and again!

Great place to hang out on a warm night. Busy on weekends. Nice patio to get some food and a drink. Pricey and not the best food though.

Maynard's is a great place to go in the summer. With great food and an huge deck to eat on overlooking the lake it makes it a great experience. They have $4 burger night, so taking the whole family can make it so you don't spend a fortune.

We went on a Monday evening and sat outside by the water. While the view was nice, the limited bar menu was expensive. Sandwiches were between $10-$13. We got the Walleye sandwich and the grilled chicken panini. Both tasted like a hot pocket. Service wasn't that great either. I'll never go back here.

This place gets crazy busy in the summertime because it has such an awesome location on the Lake! The patio is huge and makes for a great time in the summer, they have an awesome Sunday brunch and from their lunchtime to their dinner menu, great selection! I highly recommend this place, especially in the summer.

I have never had a good experience at Maynards... 2 out of 4 visits my order was completely wrong (and not fixed), waited 20 minutes for a drink order & gave up and went to the bar myself. I could go on and on.... I've sent a letter to the manager explaining why I will never come back and he never even acknowledged it. Forget it, Maynards does not care about you or the service they provide.

Pros: Can't think of one

Cons: Too many to list

Okay food and a nice view of the lake, but the service is terrible. After being seated, we had to beg for every drink refill and the server left all of the used plates to pile up in front of us. If you are going to pay this much money for food and drink you would probably save money by renting a boat. Even the bartender and hostesses were rude to customers. GO ANYWHERE ELSE!

maynards has always had great food, and service. the lake is an added bonus, and if I had to recommend some items off the menu I would say you must get the waffle fries, and the buffalo chicken wrap... you won't be disappointed. Then go to the bar and get a great drink. The deck is awesome in the summer, but always packed, especially on weekends. The beer is always great.

The Rogers location is great for happy hour. The menu is inexpensive and has diverse options: spicey green beans, buffalo shrimp, several flat breads, steak bites, lettuce wraps and more. Serice is fairly good.

The Elk River Maynards has the strangest brunch I've every attended. Sweet and sour chicken and chow mein? I wasn' t sure if I was at a Asian "all you can eat" place or brunch. The worst thing, however, was the service which was horrible - we had to beg for coffee and water. I would not recommend this place.

I love Maynards, a restaurant in Excellsior, MN, right on Lake Minnetonka. Yeah, the bulk of Minneapolis is here on Friday and Saturday nights in the summertime. But what is not to love? It has a HUGE outdoor patio, with it's own bar. You can feed the gigantic cat fish that hang out by their several docks, where boaters tie up to come catch food/drinks. The menu inside is different than the outside more casual menu. You can get a wide variety of food, American cuisine such as steaks, pastas, chicken, salads, and fish. The menu is a little more upscale inside the restaurant. Sipping on drinks, people watching, boat watching..a wonderful time.

PROS: Wonderful people watching and fantastic view of Lake Minnetonka
CONS: Horrible parking, sometimes hard to get an outside table--Arrive Early!

Maynard's is a great place to go for dining and relaxing however they lack in proffessionalism.
This restaurant is very busy and thier staff is always stressed and it shows. The management is very unprofessional and short with customers and thier phone edicate is terrible. Go there if you want a good meal, but don't expect to be treated as if you are spending any money, because they just want to turn tables.

The best place to hang out in the summer. The beers flow easily on a summer night. It may not be easy to get your own table, but there are always people willing to share. Much better than Flethcher's.

Pros: The Lake

.

How can you go wrong on the lake? I'm a little biased because I've only boated up and eaten on the wharf which has been a great experience.

The food and drinks are great - yummy pecan crusted chicken salad. I've always had great service, just crowded enough to be lively and of course the view is great. (If you don't mind a fake b**b or two)

Good food, good service, GREAT WALLEYE, and VERY good outdoor sights. Maynard's is the best this building has ever had to offer.
Come early... come often!
