My fries arrived cold. I would have informed my server had he ever stopped by to inquire how things were tasting. But we didn't see him until he brought the bill. At that point, I was surprised to find the fries were extra. He did take them off the bill when I informed him they arrived cold. The other stuff... More

Enjoyed the happy hour on the patio outside before going to see a band at The Cedar. It was my first visit. The weather was perfect so that added to a great experience. The food was fun and very tasty. I wouldn't say the service was excellent but it was good for sure.

Ate here on a Wednesday night. Good vibe a little loud but adds to the fun. Had the Bison burger. Was cooked perfectly. Service was very good. Close to the Courtyard Marriott. I will be back next time in town.

My husband and I were looking for a place with a fun urban atmosphere, good food and close to Theater in the Round. This was the perfect spot, located at Seven Corners, Minneapolis. Our server, Caitlin was very attentive to our needs, she checked in on us several times throughout our meal. I had the Wild Acres Turkey sandwich; onions,... More

Just across the street from our hotel, Republic came highly recommended. We walked in and it wasn't clear how seating worked, but eventually one of the wait staff told us to just pick a table. Once we were seated, the service was very pleasant and helpful.. They have an extensive beer list and our server did a good job of... More

This bar made Draft Magazines too beer bars of 2014. Lives up to its name. Small, but eclectic selection of beer on tap. Flights can be had. Gourmet small plate bar food offered late night; fish tacos, juicy burgers cooked to perfection, savory fries. We dined at midnight. Low lit. Cozy. This will be a continuous Minneapolis stop.

I very much like the Seven Corners area, which is a bit rough around the edges, has some historic buildings, and is a bridge between the 19th and 21st centuries. First time at Republic for a gathering. Outstanding beer selection and food is good. Service was a bit curt, but we still had a good time.

Cool looking place. Incredible beer selection. Wife found several sour beers on the menu(that's a good thing). Food however....was a disappointment. Maybe it was an off night for them. Wings tasted like bad oil, food was greasy. Ordered carrot cake for dessert, it was stale, and have obviously been defrosted. Service was very slow. We finally went straight to the... More
