Mall of America has plenty of instantly recognizable fast-food joints like Chick-Fil-A and Shake Shack as well as other fast casual dining options like Piada Italian Street Food, Naf Naf Grill, and Freshii for those looking for healthy dishes. The mall also has two major food courts with a diverse range of food stalls to choose from.
Three Mall of America Restaurants to Check Out
However, if you are craving a sit-down meal or a more formal affair, you don’t have to leave the mall! There are plenty of restaurants located inside the mall (or in one of the mall’s adjoining hotels) with waiters to attend to you and plenty of seating. When it comes to where to eat at Mall of America, here are our top picks.
Perhaps the least formal of the dining spots listed here, this burger joint is still something you shouldn’t miss. A local restaurant with only one location (as of now) and that is inside Mall of America. Starting with premium Angus beef, locally-sourced and free of antibiotics and hormones, the burgers are highly customizable with an extensive assortment of toppings and add-ons to choose from.1 The booze selection is also wide-ranging with over a dozen local craft beers on tap and liquor-spiked milkshakes.
FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar
Inside the adjoined Radisson Blu hotel, this modern yet comfortable dining spot is great for both family dinners and company team-building outings. The robust menu takes full advantage of the kitchen’s hickory-burning rotisserie and mesquite-fueled grill. Hearty dishes highlight fresh meats, poultry, fish, and produce from regional producers, all embracing distinct Minnesota flavors.2 The chic bar is also a standout, offering a wide range of locally brewed beers and craft cocktails.
Cedar + Stone Urban Table
Located at the base of the JW Marriot hotel that adjoins the mall, this upscale farm-to-table restaurant offers dishes made from fresh local ingredients and inspired by Minnesota’s cultural roots. Led by Executive Chef Everton Clarke, the menu offers an ever-changing selection of seasonal and mouthwatering dishes. This the closest you’ll get to a Michelin star dining experience right in the middle of one of America’s most popular tourist attractions.3
