We arrived at 6:30 on a Thursday night to a full restaurant. As luck would have it, our group of six was seated right away. Lions Tap does one thing and they do it very well. They serve burgers and fries, and that’s it. We had cheese burgers, bacon cheese burgers, a California Burger, and two double cheese burgers &... More

One of the best burgers I've ever had, hands down! The orders come out quick with fresh, never frozen burger, cooked your way.

Been going to Lions Tap since we moved to Minnesota in 1998. Consistently great. They tend to be rare to medium-rare which I like but others might need to send back for more cooking if desired. However, IMHO they should be medium-rare - very juicy, and flavorful. I get two singles, plain or with fried onions (included). Pickles are also... More

So, I've heard so much about Lion's Tap. I've been hearing about the great hamburgers since... Forever. So I was so excited to be driving by at dinner time and to stop. I got a burger (cuz what else is there). Well.... Absolutely nothing makes these burgers special or stand out. I don't see the point really. They were not... More

I do not see the attraction. The burgers are mediocre and not cheap. There are many places in the area that have better food and atmosphere.

We decided to take an hour drive to visit as its been many many years. Very busy on Saturday for lunch, but seated fairly quick regardless. Food was superb-service wonderful too. Great atmosphere-not too loud inside and temperature perfect for how cold outside as you are on lower level. The only thing that was a surprise was prices $9.10 for... More

I've been eating at Lion's Tap for the past 20 years. It never disappoints. They make the best traditional cheeseburger in Minnesota. These are not craft burgers. Their is no garlic Aioli. They are traditional burgers done close to perfection. Don't bring any vegetarians with, because Lion's Tap only serves burgers, fries, and beer! I usually recommend people skip the... More

This is just a great place to get a burger. Burgers are well seasoned and done right. I love getting a double bacon cheeseburger when there. Also, the crinkle fries are awesome.

We go to Lions Tap quite often as we live close by. The hamburgers are great and a real value. I think the word is getting out there about how good their burgers are as the last couple of times it's been quite crowded. Although you may go in there and there are lines they really know how to move... More
