Great Neighborhood Restaurant! 6/16/2011

Currans is a great friendly neighborhood restaurant! Their menu offers a large variety of options which is great because they will most likely have anything that you are in the mood for. The prices are also very reasonable and the portions are large. It's a place I always like to go to when I am in the neighborhood because I know I will always get a great meal. Their pie specials are also fabulous. You can get a slice of pie for $1 during certain times of the day. We always get the apple pie warmed up with ice cream....delicious! Service is also outstanding. Our server checked on us several times, always made sure we had refills, and our food came out right away. Make sure to stop by Currans when you're in the neighborhood! more

NOT WORTH WRITING HOME ABOUT 5/2/2011

The food is reasonable in price, so I can't really complain about that. I had the buffalo chicken sandwich, and my boyfriend had the French dip. We both agreed that our daughter's kids meal chicken fingers...tasted way better than our meals. ( we sample our daughter's food). I also have to complain about the missing strap on the changing table in the bathroom. I recommend that they replace their changing table..for a safer one. Changing my daughter's diaper, is like wrestling an crocodile. My boyfriend had to come into the ladies room with me, so he could hold our daughter down. We did not enjoy our experience at this restaurant, so we will not be returning. more

One of the Best Corn Beef Hash Breakfasts 4/26/2008

I've been to Curran's many times and find it very hard to believe the management would react in such a way as some of the 1&2 star reviewers have suggested. Maybe the folks who hate this restaurant were looking for a dive to hang out at as they came down off their drugg induced high, and instead picked a good family restaurant instead of Denny's, I-Hop, etc... more

There are much better options, keep looking.. 3/27/2008

After being seated, I waited nearly fifteen minutes for water and a waiter/waitress. The food was just awful! Believe me, you're better off going to Culvers for your lunch or dinner. Oh, the staff is about as apathetic as one can be. I gave it two stars instead of one because it was the Saturday before Easter. I would not return if the food were free. Pros: Food is reasonably priced Cons: Indifferent wait staff, poor quality food. more

A hospital cafeteria is a better dining experience! 3/26/2008

I visited this restaurant on a Friday night in March 08. Most of the guests were on oxygen. I can see why it's popular with the older crowd...they have no tastebuds and don't care about flavor! I ordered a ""real"" turkey sandwich on white bread. I even double-checked with the waiter that it would be ""real"" turkey (not deli sliced)...he confirmed. The order arrived and it was deli turkey on two slices of wonder bread with GOBS of miracle whip (not even the real stuff!). I was so disappointed that I asked the owner/manager to come to my table. I explained the situation and he just said, ""It is real turkey."" And walked away. He didn't care at all. The waiter never returned. They didn't ask how my meal was. They weren't surprised when I left the entire meal, virtually untouched on the table. Pros: No wait to be seated... Cons: Everything! more

New cook improves all menu items 5/24/2007

I have lived by the restaurant for almost 30 years. Since I started going there my visits have been steadily increasing. For the last 6 years (as I am getting older and don't cook at home as much), and since they got the new chef, I go there about 3 times a week. I have enjoyed every meal. It's a lot better than Denny's, but it's also a lot closer. It can get crowded Sunday mornings and around most meal times so I go a little later. Pros: Great selection, attentive staff. Cons: The ones who pick up the dishes can be a little noisy. more

A pleasant afternoon lunch 10/26/2006

I had heard of Currans because the nursing home we volunteer at has often taken the residence there for lunch. Pros: Desserts, lunch & Breakfast, ambience Cons: I've heard it's busy on Sunday. more

Neighborhood Food Friendly Service 9/23/2006

This restaurant is on the ""Denny's"" scale of restaurants but without the chain feel. It's an Irish family restaurant in the heart of a South Minneapolis neighborhood. The experience can't be beat when you don't want to cook at home and don't want to drive too far. My favorites are the hamburgers, and the french dip. The fries are a 10!! My husband loves their Monte Chirsto. more

A Fun Meal 11/21/2002

Had the typical all American breakfast here and was very pleased. No frills, just real food. This is a hangout for the locals, and as an out-of-state visitor, I was treated very well. One of Curran family brought me my meal, a generous portion of eggs, bacon, toast and hash browns. Coffee was OK, too, and I don't always like American coffee. The twin cities can be proud of this place! I'll be back! Pros: Good Prices, Excellent Food, Friendly staff Cons: waited for seating, difficult parking more

Good food @ good prices! 8/12/2002

Pretty basic family restaurant. The establishment is family run and the food portions are just right. It is a great place to bring kids too! They have weekly specials. Way better than Perkins; especially for the price! Pros: inexpensive, good for kids Cons: no alcohol beverages more
