The ace is a landmark in east st cloud. Where else can you get turtle soup. I like the variety on the menu, plus the quieter atmosphere.

We were skeptical to try Ace because it is in an older section of downtown and lacks curb appeal. However, I am so glad that we stopped. The food was some of the best we've ever had. My wife had broiled shrimp and I had BBQ ribs. Both were absolutely fantastic! We both had a bowl of clam chowder, which... More

Had a business lunch this past week here, I haven't ate at the Ace in a few years and had a higher expectation in the food quality than what we ordered. Two simple orders; Walleye fish sandwich with a bowl of chicken wild rice soup. Club sandwich with a bowl of basil tomato soup. Both soups were extremely salty, the... More

I have a friend named Freddy and we frequently go out to lunch. We have been to the Ace many times, my food has always been REALLY good. I have eaten roast beef commercials and several salads. Generous portions.

My husband and I brought my Mom for Sunday breakfast. He had the pork chop and eggs. My mother had stuffed hashbrowns. Both of them were very happy with their choices. I had the steak and eggs with pancakes-all of which were great. Steak was done perfectly and the pancakes were light and fluffy. You can always count on the... More

Wasn't overly impressed with menu selections. Food was less than memorable. Quiet place though. Tried it for something different probably won't go again.

I dined here on a Sunday and enjoyed the BBQ ribs! They were Fabulous! They were "fall-off-the-bone" with a Delicious Spicy Homemade Barbecue sauce. The coleslaw had a tasty dressing (like I make my own--with celery seed). My meal was served with garlic fries which were also Amazing! This place was very busy! There are 3 separate dining areas, but... More

The Ace is not located in a classy part of town, the outside is rather nondescript. However, I thought the interior was welcoming and pleasant, and it appeared to be somewhat-recently updated. Our group of about 16 was seated in a comfortable area and our server was very attentive and prompt. We enjoyed appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks. My ribs... More
