This little place has been around for quite some time and we just re-discovered it. Since we don't live in Faribault, we always forget it is there. Although they seem to do a lot of carry-out, we decided to dine in. They have a nice, cozy dining area with big windows. Very clean also. You put in your order at... More

We've been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. Chicken is great as well as the fish and shrimp.

We stopped at the Broaster on our way from the airport in Minneapolis to our first stop in Iowa on a recent road trip. It was listed in my AAA TourBook and we were not disappointed. This restaurant is popular with the locals. You order at the counter when you first go in. They have a huge carry-out business, but... More

It is what it is. Good chicken joint with table service or carry out. Food came hot and right. Cole slaw cold and tasty and mashed spuds hot with decent gravy. 4 piece dinner $7.99 all dark. buck more for white.

Very clean, friendly helpful staff, a lot of choices, but just like stopping by for their cod or shrimp. A mom and pop, just relaxing to stop by in the evening after a day at work and good food.

Counter help was very friendly and helpful. The food was quickly served and the restaurant was clean as well as the restrooms. All of the food, potatoes and gravy, coleslaw and chicken was good.

Everyone likes their chicken, coleslaw and potato salad. However, we discussed why they keep those horrible white buns as a side. They are pre-buttered and all of our group agreed that they either try to give them to their husbands or throw them away, Also, why not offer baked beans as a side as well. They were quite popular as... More

Much like a Tasty-Freeze, except without the ice cream. Try the 3-piece cod fish dinner. Delicious!
