Axel’s Mendota

This upscale classic style restaurant is located in the Historic Village of Mendota and features exceptionally high quality American cuisine served in a beautiful setting by an experienced, guest friendly staff. Axel’s River Grille is in the building of the former Parker House – a premiere restaurant which served the Twin Cities for over 60 years. Unbeatable Axel’s River Grille is the “flag ship” of the Axel’s Family of Restaurants and has set the standards of quality and service which has led our guests to return to all of our restaurants time and time again. Axel’s, “where traditions and memories are made.”
