Enjoy Home Cooked Meals

Chuck and Jan Lynde, along with their son Mark opened Lynde’s Restaurant in 1981, starting off small with the intent to grow.  In 1995 Chuck and Jan sold the company to Mark and keeping with the same standards, made sure to keep them on staff.

Mark and Cathy now own Lynde’s Restaurant & Catering along with Lynde Enterprises (snowplowing & lawncare), both based in Osseo.  When it comes to the restaurant, one key to our success is good, home-cooked meals.  We serve approximately 600 people on a busy Sunday morning and cater about 1,200 events per year.

Another key to Lynde’s success is our loyal staff who have been with us for many years.  We are blessed with a very professional and hard-working team who are always willing to go the extra mile.

Our chef, Larry has been with Lynde’s since 1995 cooking delicious meals, creating menus and selecting daily specials for the restaurant, along with our great culinary team.

Lexi Lynde has recently joined the Lynde team stepping into the position of Front of House Manager and Meeting Room Coordinator.  Following in the footsteps of her parents she looks forward to making the restaurant and catering a third-generation owned business.

I have been eating here for 20 years. Three years ago, they built a brand new restaurant, and it just got better. Great home cooking, good portions, nice decor, liquor and beer, and a varied menu with daily breakfast and lunch specials. They have hand-pressed hamburgers that are fabulous, and the French fries are the best. They also do excellent catering. You can't go wrong stopping here.

This restaurant is a MUST stop. They have breakfast to die for, lunch with portions that will fill you until the next day, and wonderful dinner specials. I have been here several times in the last month since stopping for my first time at the beginning of July. I have had breakfast that was so good I wish I could have eaten it all. I had lunch that was the same, good, down-home cooking with LARGE portions. I had the all you could eat crab legs that were always hot and never a wait for them. I would say if you come here, you will for sure be a return customer—great staff, very clean and very convenient.

I got married in May, and I used Lynde's Catering for my wedding. I was so stressed out like every bride is before the big day. I had a fear of running out of food and making sure that the catering was taken care of. When I called and talked to Cathy, she was so confident and easy to talk to; it made over half of my stress go away. When it came to the big day and dinner was out, it was an unbelievable setup! The buffet was perfect, and the food was to die for. We had no worries about running out and everyone that wanted to get seconds and thirds. And the talk about the taste of the food is everlasting.

To All the Staff at Lynde's Restaurant:
Thank you all for making our Grandmother's 100th Birthday so very special! You all went out of your way to make us feel welcomed and special. Your food was outstanding, and your hospitality unmeasurable. When your staff sang to her, she teared up. We thank you again and again!

You have made customers for life! If we all live as long as her, we will be around for a long time!
