Axel's has never failed to deliver in service and food quality for us. We go every couple months for Happy Hour, and maybe once a year for a full dinner as it is not inexpensive. Their brunch is delicious but only served on Sunday mornings. They have a special Mother's Day brunch we have gone to the last two years,... More

Bull Bites at Axels is a must..Or at least it use to be!..I would suggest serving it just on a bed of shredded lettuce with a few tomato halves and cucumber pieces..Keep it simple definitely NOT the onions saturated in oil..It defeats the object..Maybe other customers will disagree..This is my take on delicious Bull Bites..

Great food and drinks in a relaxed up scale restaurant. The service was outstanding but not rushed. Food was great and portion sizes were nice. Very nice selection of wines and beverages. We will return often. Not loud or noisey. We could talk very Easily

This restaurant has a full featured bar and ambiance to boot. The food is good but would say it's a bit more on the refined side and pricey. Not many "cheap" items on the menu is geared more towards finer dining I'd say. Having said that now you know if that's what you are looking for then this is a... More

We have been at Axels for many years. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the town. Their foods are great but the service is getting worse - no greeting/unattentive, slow service even not that crowded. Also She gave us a bill with some drink we didn't order! Axels needs to change and their service is going down!

Was seated at the large table just in front of a roaring fireplace. Filet and prime rib was excellent.

We were visiting the area and stopped in. The food was great and so was the service. Has a supper club feel with good steaks, seafood and burgers.

The service was really good. Our server was attentive, funny and polite. The food was wonderful. 3 people had walleye - one signature with butter and almonds and two the other alternative Parmesan encrusted and we cannot say enough good things about it. The green bean and wild rice/quinoa sides were just as good. The other person had sirloin and... More

Very friendly staff, and helpful in choosing our meals. Several had the Walleye dinners, and the Salmon. Fish was prepared excellent. Steaks looked very good also. Nice wine selection,... More
