Ward 6 is a gem on the east side. Absolutely wonderful food. I recommend the tempura battered cheese curds....way better than your average curd! This is a great place to go with a group or sail solo at the bar.

Had heard good reviews and finally made the trip to the East Side. Well worth it. The hostess and waitress were very pleasant and helpful with the menu. The food was spot on good. And as a bonus Monday night was trivia night. The owner provided some quirky themed trivia and couple of serious regular groups dominated but it was... More

We showed up without a reservation....party of five. The host was very accommodating and kept us up to date with how long the wait would be. He returned multiple times to update us. Mind you, this was not annoying, but rather entertaining. He made the wait fly by and showed that he was interested in taking care of us. He... More

I stopped in here for lunch with a friend and had been itching to check out the rage about this East Side sanctuary. The entire building is updated and the "good" old has been kept and the bad old updated to feel like its been there forever. Our waitress Juleana was great, helping us make some choices and in the...

Have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. Can be very busy and doesn't take reservations so timing of arrival can be important. Service is prompt and attentive. Tables turn over pretty quickly.

Excellent food and drink in a friendly atmosphere. We have 20 taps of Minnesota craft beer, classic and new cocktails, a surprising wine list, made from scratch food with high quality (mostly local) ingredients.
