Locally owned and owner-managed restaurant with a proud history of making food from scratch!    Hand-cut steaks, homemade sauces, salad dressings, etc., with a menu that ranges from Chicken Strips to Scallops Risotto!
Yeah, we're hard to find but easy to love!

My family and I decided to try somewhere new, for us, and chose to visit Ernie's Pub and Grill. We arrived and the restaurant was completely empty - which made us nervous, but we were eating a tad early for dinner, so we thought maybe it picks up closer to the dinner hour. As we entered we saw used bar-stools for sale in the vestibule - another bad sign of what was to come... We were greeted promptly and were given a table. Our server was very nice, and did a good job taking care of us during our meal - the quality of service was the only positive aspect of this visit. That being said, I'll skip to the food... As you might have guessed by the tone of this review, the food was terrible. Beyond terrible infact. First we tried the potstickers which were so inundated with soy-sauce they were barely edible, and the sauce that accompanied the dish was so salty it had to be more soy-sauce. The Calamari was over-breaded and also over seasoned as well. For dinner we ordered the fajita tacos which were extremely over seasoned with, what tasted like, over rthe counter taco seasoning. These tacos were so over seasoned they were barely edible. I ordered a burger with olives and blue cheese crumbles on top. The bun was obviously not freshly made. The patty was also obviously frozen and not fresh. Oh and this too was over salted. The waffle fries were good, as was the seasoned sour-cream (which they named "sexy sauce"). As for the decor.. I'll simply say it wasn't good... But I really was unhappy with their shirts... The back of their shirts read "My boss gets unhappy when I shorten his name to Dick... His name is John." Totally inappropriate for a family themed restaurant in my opinion. Furthermore, while I found the seasoned sour cream to be quite good, the term "sexy sauce" is also tip-toeing the line. That being said, fixing neither of these points will address the main issue of this restaurant - which was the atrocisly bad food. Do not visit this restaurant.

OMG the french toast is to die for!!! We are here from FL. and I wish I could take them home with me. Our server was Greg, he was spot on with everything never a dirty plate nor an empty glass. He was also a wealth of info on places to see and things to do!

The co-owner was rude when I wouldn't try his French Toast. Not only once, but every time I went up to the breakfast buffet he kept baggering me about trying it. I kindly refused and then it became an unfortunate first time experience. Overall, good food.

I'm so sorry you felt badgered. My simple goal was to let you know that it was our signature item and that, as such, I was attempting to ensure you tried our most popular item. My sincerest apologies.

The food here was ABSOLUTELY amazing, melt in your mouth delicious! If you are Gluten Free, they have mouth watering entrees cooked on a separate griddle and clearly labeled on the menu. The service was amazing. My drink was refilled before I noticed it was empty. The entire family loved it, from the adults to the children. Highly recommend. This is my new favorite restaurant in Burnsville.

Awesome little breakfast buffet. Super friendly staff. Great with kids. Mostly gluten free, even though we didn't care about that. French toast is killer. Reasonable priced as well. Will go back.

I've been to Ernie's a few times, mostly for drinks, and then this morning for the breakfast buffet. The bar is right up my alley. Not too packed, nice but not trendy, interesting beers on tap. The breakfast buffet food was great, and priced right for a boys' morning out with my son. The service is always friendly and attentive. They're a little off the road, and I suspect as a result, a lot of people don't know about them. If they were closer to County Road 42, they would probably be much busier.
