I was really disappointed with this place. I had heard good things about it and decided to go with a couple of my friends last night. The only nice thing I have to say about it was that the atmosphere was nice--it's in an old,...More

This is a great place for groups to go and mingle or singles go to be seen. The atmosphere is very cool and their sprits are fine, along with an outstanding menu.

This place is great, lots of different drinks to try and good food to eat. The staff is very friendly and engaging to talk to. They are quick to refill your water or get you another drink. Easy laid back atmosphere.

Enjoyed much more than Tattersall which gets all the hype. Beautiful place, suitable for date night with fireplaces and candles lit. Also have small plates/snacks. Cocktails interesting.

What a fun, “hipster” restaurant and distillery. It is located in an industrial area of Minneapolis (as far as I could tell as a tourist.) You enter through the loading dock area into an open area with tables and booths, a long bar with the...More

Everything is made from scratch...from the liquor to the drinks to the high end food. Every time I come here they've added more reasons to come back. The vodka, rum and gin are what first impressed me. Then, they brought in mixologists who make all...More

Norseman is a unique blend of industrial architecture and inventive libations and a newly minted experimental food program. I attended a pop up of a 12 course set menu with beverage pairings. It started around the fire pit where I was served a gespacho bomb...More
