Excellent staff. Quiet and undiscovered. Good mix of seating options and a nice view. Hope they join the Priority Pass network soon so l can skip the Delta lounge permanently.


Great lounge, quiet with decent views. Staff were so helpful and snacks and drinks were good too. The space was quiet and relaxed but with many different seating areas, will come again - needs LB access.


Great ambiance. Similar to AMEX Centurion lounge in design elements. Yummy chocolate truffles!!!


Very cool space that has all the vibes of a Centurion Lounge. Now a Priority Pass lounge!


Love how they list out complimentary v. a la carte food and drink. Quiet. Modern. Clean. Great food selection!


Spacious! Lots of seating, nicely designed. Great amenities-magazines/newspapers, bar, power outlets near most seating, booth seats. Happy that Priority Pass is accepted here now. Will be visiting a lot!


Excellent new lounge: comfy, quiet, stylish, great view, with personal table service. The purchasable meals are well worth the nominal cost.


Great lounge from UK based company. 1st one in US. Plan to open more in Oakland and Hartford.


Food was great. Service was very pleasant. View of the E GATES is magnificent.


Great service. Comfortable location, and incredibly quiet on a Saturday. Great if you want to get out of the "mall" full of crying kids. Food was okay. A little too sharp for my taste.


Great lounge, good food options, not crowded.


Awesome lounge! One of the best domestic lounges around. Loved the mini sliders and Fiji water. Tons of seating and very quiet throughout. Great addition to MSP!


Great escape! Definitely worth it. Very quiet and comfortable. Lots of options for food and drink. Really friendly staff. Thumbs up!


Great food and amenities that rival the Centurion lounge. A great lounge in its own right, but even better since it's the sole Priority Pass lounge at MSP.


Very nice and spacious. The staff is very nice and helpful way better than the United Club!


I recently discovered this lounge and I love it. There is no AA club at MSP, and this lounge is very convenient to the AA gates. It has a good selection of free food and drinks and a friendly staff.


How did I not know this lounge was here? More like an international lounge. Quiet, good food and service. Access with Priority Pass.


Good, clean with decent food options. Much better than most domestic lounges. Had multiple salads, sandwiches, premium cheeses. Expresso machine. Modern decor with comfortable seating.


Super polite staff, quiet and so much better than the way over crowded Delta lounge in terminal 1. Tons of charging options, bottled water, great food selection. Highly recommend!


As a Sky Club and Priority Pass member, it's my new MSP go to lounge. Good food offerings, Fiji water and a really good free Cab Sav./Fiji water. Staff was friendly and lounge was clean and not crowded.


Food is good, but supply is limited. They refill, but it can be overwhelmed in a rush. Nice views and relaxing.


Generally nice and clean. Some of the food was picked over & dried out when I arrived. The place was quiet even with a few families with kids. Would consider returning, but not at full price.


Great lounge, food selections are above par with sandwiches, salads, meats/cheeses, sweets, and chips. Good selection of items you can take on the go to. Spacious as well.


Worth stopping by if you have Priority Pass.


Quiet, comfortable lounge. Decent food, I enjoyed my stay!


There are comfy love seats to catch a nap. Food is fairly solid. Good pours at the bar. Modern and convenient with lots of power...USB and otherwise.


Went there around 11:30, nothing much to eat. There was no description of what they were. Not veg friendly. It's clean and spacious though.


Friendly staff, decent machine coffee and edible eats. Worth stopping by esp if you're not flying DL. They just updated their food offerings including veg options.


Clean, spacious, stylish, and nice view of the tarmac.


It was a bummer that the bar does not open until 0600.


I had a bad service experience on my visit but it was corrected.


Staff was very attentive. Some dirty dishes around, but very busy time (evening). For US lounge, superb food options.


Very good food selection. Furniture is very clean.


Decent. As others noted, the decor is similar to Centurion Lounges. Ample seating space but limited food selection. Nice gesture that there is no time restrictions. Would suggest installing bathrooms.


Food was okay, kinda bland. Lounge is very large and quiet! Decor is stylish, but having to leave the lounge for the bathrooms is annoying.


No hot food. Ending Priority Pass.


This lounge has decent food; however, the service is terrible - one person to check in/clean/bar tend/put out food. The result is empty food selections, long waits for drinks and check in. Could be better.


Unfortunately, this lounge will no longer be available to Priority Pass members starting June 14, 2017.

They now allow access with guest (free) for American Express Platinum Card members (show boarding pass and photo ID).


Understaffed, but good food and seating.


They are understaffed. If they added more staff to keep it clean & serve food, I would rate it higher.


Certainly not fresh anymore. Barely any food out and dirty dishes/trash on many empty tables. Lounge was nicely laid out quiet. Bathrooms are not attached to lounge.

Joe Cleveland

This lounge is ending Priority Pass access soon. They were short staffed when I arrived with little food out. When they do have food it's really good. Nicest lounge in MSP.


11 June 17 - was very unkept and understaffed. Food was about 1/4 stocked and poorly presented. Staff was very friendly but obviously stressed. Add more help and it would be an awesome lounge.

Ryan Tilbury

Great domestic lounge with well above average food and snacks. Reminds me of the AMEX Centurion lounges. Bathrooms are located weirdly outside the lounge.


Nice lounge! Quite and peaceful at a recent 10am visit on a Thursday. Nice spread of light bites in the food category and a well stocked bar. The bathrooms are outside the lounge.


Good selection was better than expected. Plenty of room.


Nice lounge for Amex Platinum folks. Legit food, you could have a light meal and be fine. Not crowded but still had to wait 5 mins for bartenders. Staff get bored and wander off.


Best lounge at MSP in every way except the restrooms. Now I only visit the overcrowded DL lounges at MSP during delays for access to in person assistance.


Nice lounge. Best thing about is it's quiet. If more people start coming, may go downhill. No bathrooms.


Lots of seating options and outlets, fast wi fi, variety of good food options. Great cookies. Nice view of the tarmac. No bathrooms so you have to exit and come back in for that.


Comical amount of food.... do yourself a favor, if you have a Amex Platinum, go to the Escape Lounge.


Really nice lounge. I may have just lucked out since it's a Sunday afternoon but really quite and solid offering.

Adam Skare

Decent breakfast, great lunch, large space.


Quiet, spacious lounge with large, comfy chairs and a nice selection of food and drinks. Pretty impressive considering it's a domestic lounge.


Tried all the lounges, this is best. Really nice food, good bar selection, friendly service and good space.

Steve McMillan

Very good option, loved the food and drink selection. Only downside is no bathroom inside lounge, otherwise great lounge.


Friendly staff, good food choices, plenty of quiet seating.


Standby passengers don’t have access. Losing out on a ton of travelers and those who often travel most frequently. Poor service offering.


Large lounge overlooking the ramp area. Buffet food including sandwiches and tacos. Also salads and cheeses and meats. Better than most domestic airline lounges. Friendly staff, comp drinks and food!


First time we used LoungeBuddy and spent 10 hours here! Can't imagine what we would have done without the Escape Lounge! Good good, drink and service. Private comfortable seating.


Great lounge. Nice selection of food and drinks, good decor and lighting and lots of space.

Soner Cagaptay

Nice lounge. I actually prefer this over the Delta one. Not very busy, good selection of stuff.


Nice lounge with ample seating. We took our 1 year old and we had a nice little secluded area where he could stretch before the flight. Definitely recommended!


Amazing buffet of breakfast and lunch choices of fresh, quality, healthy, and tasty food.


Better than the United and Delta lounges.


Nice lounge. I wouldn’t pay to get in, but if you can access it free via Amex then it’s a pretty decent place to spend some time. Food’s only OK, but it’s quiet, clean and comfortable. Great views.


Very nice lounge. Nice food selection, comfortable seating, great views. Virtually empty while Delta lounge was packed...

Kevin McGinty

Great lounge. Allows guests with AmEx Platinum card. Plenty of space. Good food.


No longer part of Priority Pass. Seems to be Amex only.


Had to be at the airport before 6 am. Nice to know Escape lounge was opened at 4 am. Good breakfast items (juice, cheese, pastry, etc.), clean and quiet.


Nice quiet lounge. If you have Amex Platinum it feels like a private club compared to Sky Club.


Great lounge for Amex Platinum card holders (Need to present card). Full bar with nice beer selection, salad bar, soup, hot dishes and small cheese /charcuterie selection. View of Gates E & F.


Beautiful, great food selection and seating options. Quiet too.


Been here many times before, all of a sudden won’t accept a non confirmed ticket with Amex Platinum to get in. “New policy”


Great quiet place. The breakfast was actually pretty decent, and there are no less than 1000 places to charge your electronics.


No premium food, but plenty of buffet snack items to make a meal.


Great lounge. Good food and service. Not very crowded


Great lounge with lots of room, ample food choices and friendly staff. Only knock is the bathroom situation where you have to leave the lounge. Highly recommend


If you have free access it’s worth the visit. Staff is nice but hardly anyone worked here — same person doing bar as front desk. The view was great. The food was solid and the atmosphere was quiet.
