We meet friends here nearly every Friday night. The food is consistent and good...not off the charts or spectacular but perfect pub food. To be fair there are times when the specials are indeed off the charts! So keep an eye out for the specials that seem a little out of place because they can actually be surprisingly terrific. The...

This place turns out some of the best breakfasts you'll ever have. Imagine your favorite corner bar with awesome food. It's the sort of place where you could eat breakfast and hope you get snowed in there the rest of the day. Ask for Sonja. I've never been there later in the day but they have a nice beer selection...

We frequently visit Mankato for work and I was excited to find a local offering as an alternative to the typical chain restaurants. NaKato was a very good choice. I can see why the locals hang out here. The food and service were both very good. Our group ordered a couple of burgers and chicken strip baskets. The burgers menu... More

Perkins was too busy, so we went to NaKato Bar and Grill for breakfast. Bartender was awesome! Great service! Great breakfast! Not far from the Hotels along 169. Well worth the trip. Will definitely go back there the next time I stay in Mankato.

The Nakato Bar always offers great food, good prices and a good time! The waitresses are friendly and work hard - the service is great! We've been there often with family and friends and still seem to run into more people we know! It's a quaint, local bar/restaurant that never disappoints! Give it a try!

Breakfast is excellent. The bacon is out of this world. Evening specials a good deal. The chef puts together unusual combinations for a great burger. The patty dunker is sooo good. Never had a bad meal of service here.

This place always is a good experience for diners or just a good place to unwind with a beverage and friends. Friendly vibe and the best hot beef commercials in the area. They also serve up great dinners and sandwiches. It is a good place to visit with each other while enjoying a drink.

Best Beef Commercials in North Mankato and Best Sports Bar. Never a bad food experience regardless of menu choice. Highly recommend lower North Mankato for fantastic food, atmosphere and outdoor patio experience.
