Lounge Access

The PGA Golf Club Minneapolis is a Priority Pass Lounge. I accessed it thanks to my membership.

Priority Pass members and guests get a credit of $15, which can be used for food at Ike’s, Rock Bottom Brewery or French Meadow. You can also use the credit to play golf in one of the simulators at the lounge.

Initially you could only use the lounge for food at Ike’s, so the addition of the two other restaurants was a nice surprise for this visit.

I am not a golfer so I decided I would try breakfast at French Meadow as it is a popular restaurant in the Twin Cities.

The agent at the reception desk thanked me as I departed the lounge and he wished me a good day.

I approached French Meadow and a host invited me to take a seat at the bar. I asked if I could sit at a table instead and she said yes and escorted me to one of the tables.

The restaurant was approximately 50% full when I arrived.

The host welcomed me to the restaurant and offered coffee. I accepted and she thanked me.

The coffee was provided within a minute as well as a menu.

Breakfast is available until 11:00 AM.

The server greeted me a minute or two later and asked if I was ready to order. I accepted and I ordered a corn blueberry pancake.

The server suggested a double order or adding eggs or bacon. I declined and she thanked me.

The server offered to refill my coffee a couple times during the visit.

Within five minutes of ordering, the server returned and provided the breakfast.
