Oh, where to begin... We arrived after having just run in the ""Race for Justice."" There were around 16 of us in 4 distinct family groups. At first we were almost turned away (overwhelmed, I guess, due to the fact that they were already handling another large party.) Despite the fact that the entire dining room was empty. We were finally seated after helping the staff bring some tables and chairs together. Drink orders were taken, and we asked that the guest checks be generated by Family group (3-5 in each) and we were told , ""not possible,"" Drinks took a good 15 minutes to appear. Ordered the Eggs Benedict (featured on the table-top promotion card) along with 3 or 4 others inthe group. I have one word for the chef- PERKINS. If you want to know what a decent, well presented Eggs Bene looks like... Honestly, the Eggs were cooked HARD, the Sauce was WAY too lemony, and the overall presentation was pathetic. Others commented on their food as being fair to poor. After being presented with the guest check, we spent the next 30 minutes doing napkin math, only to get it all wrong anyway. Boy, that's fun. I approached the manager and provided feedback on the food quality and the level of service. While she apologized for not having met the most basic of expectations, she made sure to underscore the fact that they really had been put out by having such a large group show up unannounced. And I thought DT MPLS was hurting for business these days... We have made this a tradition of sorts after doing this particular run, but never more- time to start a new tradition, this time without Pracna's. Sad, really, I used to be quite taken with the whole SAM area, but it's fallen into such disrepair.
Pros: Has history on its side
Cons: Simply nothing to recommend this place
