Do you like super crowded bars full of fun noisy people? watching (european) pay per view football for free on multiple screens? Lots of beers, ales, scotch and whiskey flowing? a fun urban after work scene? Look no further. If you're like me, you'll come here for cocktails during the World Cup. That's it. I can't comment on the food,... More

We came here on a getaway trip and stumbled on this place. Fun to sit outside and people watch. The 2 Gingers drink was great and we had some pretty tasty sliders. Pretty busy and took a while for simple stuff.

We've been before for the Sunday a.m. brunch which starts at 9am. It's about $14/person. The atmosphere makes it even more worth the price. We had an amazing waiter last visit. We came from out of town for the Vikings game but came to fill up on delish Irish Breakfast first. A large crowd of about 20-25 people show up... More

Good value for your money. Enjoyed the pork sliders, hamburgers and of course the beer. The atmosphere was cozy and as it was freezing outside really enjoyed the fire.

We loved the antique woodworks and ambiance of this place - as well as the food choices. Ask for a quiet booth if you want a romantic dinner. We were seated by a window in a booth surrounded with beautiful carved woods and stained glass.

Visited this restaurant on a cold snowy day. Had there tomato soup to warm up which was absolutely delicious. Very yummy desserts. The fudge cake is a must try. The staff is very welcoming and made great suggestions as it was my first time dining there. Highly recommend.

We love this place! During our recent visit to Minneapolis, we came here twice. Outstanding service. Great beer selection. I recommend the Dead Irish Poet stout. We loved the wall eye appetizer, tomatoes and Gouda soup and the club sandwich. Can't wait to visit again.

Thank Roberta5261
