Great Beer selection, small menu but worht stopping by

We were in the area with family for the weekend and stopped into Republic for dinner. I had expected a larger menu due to the size of the establishment, however what was offered was very good. They are more focused on the extensive microbrew selection, which was good. Around the table there... read more

I was staying next door while doing some work at the university. Great pub food complimented by one of their great brews. The bartender was brand new, but a really nice guy. Easy access to the light rail from here as well.

I like the republic and go there for happy hour. Last time I went and was surprised that H/H burger is same size as regular, which was overcooked (ordered rare, barely pink, so was my partner).

I had lunch with colleagues here, because it was close to a business meeting. We were not impressed. The food was of a mediocre quality. We were four guests. We order four different items, and none of us was happy with the quality of the food. I guess we sacrificed quality for convenience. Next time we go to Quiznos :)

I have to say, for the price ($12 with fries), I expected a bit more of this burger. I've read good reviews about Republic's burgers specifically and have to wonder if it's because of their unique meats - duck, lamb, turkey and bison. I'd be curious to go back and try something other than their beef, but if a good... More

Nice stop before theater or Music venues in neighborhood. Food choices are limited but nice variation of sandwiches, meals, snacks and desserts. Many choices of draft beers. Vary organized. Orders obtained, delivered by another person, checked on by server. Had vegetarian Burger and fries...excellent. Others had steak and fries, also excellent. Busy place!

Great tap list, even better food. They've got a huge patio which can experience a bit of noise from the surrounding traffic, but it's a nice place to have a drink on a summer afternoon. Very good happy hour specials. Only one downfall: if you're driving, you will have to pay for parking.

My buddies and I walked into the restaurant and we disturbed a mouse that happened to be collecting food for its family. Decent burgers though.

Great pub with a huge selection of local beers. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful in selecting a good sample. The food was good and atmosphere nice.

I'm not a beer fan, but my friends really enjoyed the fantastic selection of local bears. I enjoyed a great Old Fashioned (or maybe two) while putting back a couple of orders of cheese curds. Delish!
