Chanhassen, MN has a shortage of finer restaurants. I think that is why they are still in business. The décor and carpet, and overall ambiance is so stall. We ordered coconut shrimp and it was disgusting - way too much breading, greasy and smelled so...More

Be careful not to confuse Axel's with Axel's Bonfire. The menu's between the two are much different. Axel's is higher priced. The restaunt was beautiful. The high back booths were very nice. The food was expensive but good.

Wow, Axel's used to be so good. Now the recipe appears to be high prices with poor service. Many better places in Chanhassen.

Great food and drinks in a relaxed up scale restaurant. The service was outstanding but not rushed. Food was great and portion sizes were nice. Very nice selection of wines and beverages. We will return often. Not loud or noisey. We could talk very Easily

This restaurant has a full featured bar and ambiance to boot. The food is good but would say it's a bit more on the refined side and pricey. Not many "cheap" items on the menu is geared more towards finer dining I'd say. Having said...More

We have been at Axels for many years. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the town. Their foods are great but the service is getting worse - no greeting/unattentive, slow service even not that crowded. Also She gave us a bill with some...More
