    OutstandingReally nice big lounge with plenty of seating opinions for all guests. Food is really good and has a wide variety to choose from.
    David LuteijnJanuary 2019
    OutstandingThis is a nice retreat away from the busy main concourse. Great food and service with normally not a lot of people. Would be a bonus to have restrooms inside the lounge.
    AnonymousOctober 2018
    OutstandingGreat lounge on par with Centurion Lounges. Good food selection, full bar, and best of all, it’s not very busy. Free entry with AMEX Platinum. MUCH better than Delta’s lounges.
    AnonymousSeptember 2018
    OutstandingMuch better than the Delta lounges. Nice and cozy and great selection of food to make a meal.
    GarrettSeptember 2018
    OutstandingUnexpectedly good food spread. Super quiet even on a busy day in terminal. Accepts AMEX on Apple Pay if you don't have physical card.

    OutstandingGreat place to relax and recharge your batteries. Great food and friendly staff.

    Worth a DetourDecent lounge. At first the food selection looks small but it’s actually OK.
    Ryan July 2018
    OutstandingFood was great, even for breakfast. Incredible views of the runway, perfect if you’re an AV geek. While the restroom situation is a bit confusing, the whole experience was great. Also, not crowded!
    GabrielJuly 2018
    SatisfactoryIf 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.
    BobJune 2018
    OutstandingGreat 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.

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

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

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

    OutstandingVery nice lounge. Nice food selection, comfortable seating, great views. Virtually empty while Delta lounge was packed...
    Kevin McGinty January 2018
    Worth a DetourNice 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.
    AdamJanuary 2018
    OutstandingBetter than the United and Delta lounges.
    DavyJanuary 2018
    OutstandingAmazing buffet of breakfast and lunch choices of fresh, quality, healthy, and tasty food.
    TamiJanuary 2018
    OutstandingNice 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!
    ErikJanuary 2018
    Worth a DetourNice lounge. I actually prefer this over the Delta one. Not very busy, good selection of stuff.

    ReneeOctober 2017
    OutstandingLarge 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!

    OutstandingReally nice lounge. I may have just lucked out since it's a Sunday afternoon but really quite and solid offering.
    Adam SkareAugust 2017
    SatisfactoryComical amount of food.... do yourself a favor, if you have a Amex Platinum, go to the Escape Lounge.
    DanielAugust 2017
    Worth a DetourLots 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.
    Retinol13July 2017
    OutstandingNice lounge. Best thing about is it's quiet. If more people start coming, may go downhill. No bathrooms.
    AnonymousJuly 2017
    OutstandingBest 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.
    CharlieJuly 2017
    Worth a DetourNice 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.

    OutstandingGood selection was better than expected. Plenty of room.
    AnonymousJuly 2017
    Worth a DetourNice 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.
    GEORGEJuly 2017
    OutstandingGreat domestic lounge with well above average food and snacks. Reminds me of the AMEX Centurion lounges. Bathrooms are located weirdly outside the lounge.
    KristineJune 2017
    Satisfactory11 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 TilburyJune 2017
    OutstandingThis 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.
    ChrisJune 2017
    Worth a DetourThey are understaffed. If they added more staff to keep it clean & serve food, I would rate it higher.
    JohnMay 2017
    SatisfactoryCertainly 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 ClevelandMay 2017

    Needs ImprovementNo hot food. Ending Priority Pass.
    CarolynMay 2017
    SatisfactoryThis 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.

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

    Worth a DetourFood was okay, kinda bland. Lounge is very large and quiet! Decor is stylish, but having to leave the lounge for the bathrooms is annoying.
    AnonymousMay 2017
    Worth a DetourDecent. 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.

    Brian November 2016
    Worth a DetourGenerally 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.
    ElliotNovember 2016
    Worth a DetourFood is good, but supply is limited. They refill, but it can be overwhelmed in a rush. Nice views and relaxing.
    JonathanOctober 2016
    Worth a DetourAs 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.

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

    OutstandingI 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.

    OutstandingVery nice and spacious. The staff is very nice and helpful way better than the United Club!
    HiSeptember 2016
    Worth a DetourGreat 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.
