McGovern's is a great place to stop if you go out in St. Paul. It is located in a great spot, and has a lot of space inside to eat, drink and hang out. In summer it has even more room with the patio which is one of the coolest patios that you will find, but it can be tough... More

I work in downtown St. Paul and there is no better place to go after work for a cold beer and great meal! As someone who loves Irish pubs, I can say without a doubt this is the best Irish Stew i have ever had! The service is always great regardless of if they are busy or if they are... More

I have visited this restaurant a few times due to a Minnesota wild game. I have ordered food twice, the fish sliders and the potato skins on two separate occasions. Both times the food has been mediocre to bad. The fish sliders, what this restaurant is known for, were bland and commercial, and the potato skins were just fried potato... More

We typically stop here a couple times a year before Wild games. Always a fun atmosphere. Food is excellent and portion sizes are more than adequate. Just need to be aware that it is often crazy busy prior to games and both wait times for seating and food can be longer than you might like. Arrive early and it's not... More

Stopped here for dinner on a Sunday night. Was very crowded but by the time we finished our beer a table opened up and we enjoyed our meal. Crowded when xcell energy stadium has things going on.

We ate here before a Wild game. It was busy, but the food and service was excellent! It's a great place for families and for adults looking to have a few drinks before the game.

Patrick McGovern's is a great pub which is right in the heart of St. Paul. It is easily accessible to the Excel Center and near a lot of other bars if you are bar hopping. The food is excellent and affordable. They have a great celebration on St. Patrick's Day and also the prior weekend. Fun entertainment and a tent... More

Stopped in as it was convenient to our hotel and heard good things about this place. Service was very good. We did not eat as we only wanted a beer or two. I do not believe that it should hold itself out as an Irish bar when you only have one Irish beer on tap! Also, other than Guiness, it... More

Had dinner here with family before the TSO concert. I always get their burger because it I so good and juicy and full of flavor. Our server, Jordan recommended the hot turkey sandwich to my husband and son-in-law and it was a great recommendation. Love this place!
