We love the steak bites and waffle fries. It's such a great value at happy hour. We had prompt, friendly service and the food was hot and tasty! What more can you ask for?

The menu has something for everyone. Food ids always very good and the prices are fair. During the summer this places rocks due to the outside deck right on lake Minnetonka.

By far the best service I've had out of every restaurant I have ate at. Nikki was our waitress and she took very good care of us. Could not have asked for a better experience here. The food was great too. Thanks again Nikki for the best service ever.

Maynard's is right on Lake Minnetonka. You can eat inside and outside on either the deck or on the dock. It's our family favorite for get together or celebrations. It has a widely varied menu from salads, sandwiches, burgers and entrees.

Had lunch here. Food was very good and rather reasonable. The Reuben was delicious. The view of the lake, even snow covered was delightful. Will be back when visiting area again.

Took daughter and my 2 little grandsons out for lunch. Everything was wonderful. Had firecracker shrimp and smoked chicken panini. Very good. And they were very good with children. Wouldnt recommend 2yrs olds during busy time.

Made reservations for Sat evening, when we arrive it was very busy. We got seated promptly. Service was good and right on. Food was good, no one had an issue out of the four of us. Cost for drink and food were fair. I would keep this as a place to go in the future.

Had been for lunch with friends before the play in the nearby theatre. The food was good, portions very big (makes sense to share). Plenty of waitresses make it fast and easy to get your order. Place is rather busy at lunch time.

Maynard's is a really fun restaurant. I've been here many times with the most recent being in January 2017. The food is really good and reasonably priced. I didn't go to the bar area, but there were quite a few people there and it seemed like they were having a pretty good time. The wait staff was very nice and... More
