Ovpriced and overrated – Sat at the counter and was surprised at the prices. Everything in there is overpriced. Too bad that they don't match the price with the type of service you would expect at a pricey restaurant.
I saw my order go up in the window and it sat, and sat and sat. My server was no where to be seen and none of the other servers even considered helping to pick up the slack by carrying my order 5 feet so I could eat. I had a cold ten dollar Reuben sandwich that I could have gotten elsewhere much quicker for much less money and much better tasting.
A true family place. – This place brings so many memories! I have been going here with my grandparents for over 15 years! After my grandfather passed away, we held a dinner party here for 20 people it was wonderfull everone had a "meatball sandwich" in honor of him and his favorite dish. Some of the reviews say it is for old people, but that just adds to the quiet dinning experience. I truely love this place and will always go here!
High Quality Value! – If you like affordable, high quality meals with taste and portions, Pearson's is an excellent place to go. The service is great, you will not be rushed, and it is easy to carry on a conversation with family members and friends. The decor is retro elegant. There is something on the menu for everyone. If you are tired of meals that consist of a wafer and a medallion, visit Pearson's. You will be satsified with the price, quality, portion and presentation of the food.
Great homemade food! Priced to high! – The food was great! The patty melt was done just right and served HOT! My friend had the french dip and was great. The food is home made. The desserts are very good too.
The bad thing is the menu is WAY OVERPRICED! A turkey dinner is $18.00! Swedish meatballs are $17.00
and a 1/2 order is $16.00? What is the point of a 1/2 order? They charge $2.00 for french fries if you want them with your sandwich. The sandwiches are $10.00 without fries only chips.
I don't know who is in charge of the prices but if they don't make them more reasonable nobody is going to eat there.
Big Burger Blues – I'm sitting in Tennessee wanting a Paul Pearson's BigBurger! Wish I could find a way to have one shipped immediately.
Overpriced, Uninspiring Breakfast – The price we paid for three undersized pancakes, one egg, and a couple strips of bacon was absurd. The pancakes were above average, but the rest was no different than you'd get at Perkins for substantially less money. Had the pancakes been larger, and there been some nice touches like warm syrup, that would have allowed me to at least give it an additional star. As it is, though, when factoring value for your money into the equation Pearson's was decidedly below average.
WONDERFUL!!! – This restaurant is one of very few places where you can get such a unique, yet comfortable dining experience. From the moment that you walk in to the moment that you leave you feel as though you are sitting at your family's own restaurant. The menu variety and pricing is also really great. You get great home cooked food for way cheap. You can't get something like that at a place like Perkin's or Denny's. The environment is very friendly and relaxing where you can bring your family and have a nice meal for a great price. The place has been in business for a long time which obviously means it is successful and has many loyal customers. What is the big deal if there are elderly people who are often seen there?! That is probably a pretty good sign considering the size of our elderly population! The younger people are too caught up into going to chain restaurants that they can pick up quickly with their GPS navigators and a place they know or have heard of. I'm sure that many of the younger people who do eat at this place always come back because they realize you can't get incredible homemade banana pancakes from even their own kitchen!
GREAT! – Relaxing atmosphere, excellent home cooking! It is hard to find a restaurant these days with the great friendly service they provide. They make you feel like family. It is a great place to go for a nice dinner out, or a quick lunch at the counter! They were able to accommodate my needs with quick and friendly service! I give this restaurant 10 stars and will be going back and bringing friends and family!
And just so there is no confusion, there is a baby changing table in the restroom AND i worked at a nursing home for 4 years and i can GUARANTEE it does NOT smell like one!
Worst dining experience to date. – One would think that a restaurant in this locale, for as many years as it has been there, would actually equate with a delightful experience. Unfortunately, this was not the case in any way shape or form. They were able to accommodate our large group, but that was about it. At no time was the restaurant busy, yet it took an hour for our first course to arrive. The prices were ridiculous; the fare was forgettable, and bland--a complete rip off. Perhaps that is why the majority of the customers were senior citizens; they tend to forget easily, have lacking taste buds, and have ample retirement money to throw around. I would give it zero stars, but that wasn't an option. Either they need to step up their quality of service, provide much better food, and cut their prices drastically, or they should close before other people get ripped off.
Worst Restaurant in Minneapolis – We chose to go to Pearson's last night because they could accommodate a party of 14 with little notice. We soon found out why as it was the worst restaurant experience of ALL of our lives. Upon entry, the place smelled exactly like a nursing home. Everyone in the somewhat busy place was 65 years of age or older, so it basically looked like a nice cafeteria at a nursing home. My 70 year old father was even disgusted. The menu was straight out of 1982 and menu is GROSSLY overpriced. The food was bland, boring and overpriced. The service was slow and confused. We had an infant with us too, and they did not have a changing table in the bathroom, nor did they have anywhere to feed the baby. Basically Pearson's Edina Restaurant is only for old people with too much money who've been living in assisted living since birth. We'd have been better off at the horrible Old Country Buffet.
