I love annies – I love the green chilli, Love the Fench toast!
Love the Shakes!
Annies has always made me happy.
Beware the food poison – I made the mistake a few days ago of trying Annie's for Dinner. I had eaten there for breakfast for some time without any problems. The food was generally quite good.
I ordered the ground sirloin with mushrooms, gravy, and onions. Within about an hour I felt a little queasy. I spent the rest of the night with a fever in the bathroom vomiting and worse. I'm certain the poisoning came from this meal as I hadn't eaten anything all day.
I did call Annie's to report the incident, and the hostess was very kind. She told me the owners would call me back, but they never bothered to return my call. It could be just one unlucky experience, but, anecdotally, when I told some friends about what happened I got two other reports of similar food illnesses from people who had eaten at Annie's.
Awesome food and service – Great Food, good service, friendly people. What more could you want!
Annie's Crape – I've eaten here four times. The first time was great--eggs benedict with tasty hollandaise. The second time was a bad hamburger. The third time was good--more eggs benedict. The fourth time was $4 for Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate powder+water (the waitress said so). I got one of the cheapest things on the menu--three Sloppy Joe sliders for $4.95 that were just as good as the ones I ate in the elementary school cafeteria--I knew the food wouldn't be good enough to waste $13 for an entree that really doesn't even come with worthwhile vegetables. The service is lackluster and half-hearted. As the friend of mine pointed out, Annie's doesn't even give you a side of mayonnaise in little cup, just a plastic packet. So why was I there if I'd had not so good experiences before? Because my friend wanted soup, which, she said, could have used more chicken in it. Well, Annie's at least knows how to make eggs benedict. But I'd already eaten my eggs for the day. But I won't be back.
Frozen packaged processed salt laden food, YUCK – TERRIBLE!!! Go directly to your cheap frozen TV dinner section of your cheapest grocery store and there you have the disgusting quality of dining experience at Annie's this evening. I am so angry at the moment with the poor, poor processed packaged frozen food and the stupid high price for this junk. I have been going since 1979, but never ever again. All things need to come to an end and Annie's era is done!!
Hey Citysearch: Annie's has moved! Change the address! – Annie's moved from 8th Ave. in June 2008 to Colfax and St. Paul...In so doing, something got lost in translation. I used to LOVE the vibe at the old location and the food was always reliably tasty, especially the thick milkshakes. It was like an old-fashioned soda fountain/diner. Since the move, we've visited a couple times and it's just a totally different place. It's weird to have a dark bar in the back and it looks pretty much just like Goodfriends did, so they really haven't made it their own. Secondly, service is a lot slower now. And on our last visit, our waiter never checked in on us...My buffalo burger (ordered medium) was basically charred, well-done. That's not something you ever want to do to buffalo meat. I don't know if the milkshakes survived the move in tact, but I'm about out of patience with hoping Annie's will return to normalcy. Let's hope so!
Annie's a glimmer of former self – We went to Annie's on 12.9.08. I'm sorry to say I don't think we will go back. The service was snail paced at best. The food arrived cold after a 45 minute wait and when we asked our server for an explanation, he said that they were busy. The dining room wasn't full so I'm not what busy means. This is our 3rd visit to the new location but it hasn't gotten any better. The old location was wonderful. We went at least once a week. It was a great place to take the kids and get a quick bite . Not anymore. It's a shame, because Annie's was always a great place to eat. Please take note Annie's and step up to the plate. We miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not a fan – Poor service and mediocre food. Staff was not particularly friendly. There was a mistake on the bill and it was not easily resolved. Won't go back.
If you go, pay with cash – The food is good. The service was fair. And then the waitress charged my debit card three times for the wrong amounts. She had no idea how to take the charges off so called in her manager. I had to wait for some 20-25 minutes for the manager to figure out how to correct the overcharges. She wouldn't give me the meal for free and reluctantly returned my tip.
Bye bye to Annie's good friends, RIP – It seemed like a perfect match to have Annie?s take over the space from the longtime favorite Goodfriends. When I asked if they still had considered to keep Fullers ESB on tap, the waitress said in a condescending manner that "Annie has other ideas for a restaurant." I guess other ideas include asphalt like "medium rare" burgers, petrified chicken fingers (think fried pork skins), and very slow an inattentive service. We didn't complain, although I wish we had now. To top it all off, the waitress added a 20% gratuity because we had 6 people in our party. Our party was 3 adults and 3 kids under age 6. She was definitely trolling for a double tip. This place is not family friendly. Actually it just isn't friendly at all. Too bad. I had heard that the old Annie's was a decent place.
