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

The food was great when you actually get it. Sat down at the bar and waited awhile for someone to actually notice us. One bartender was texting on her phone the other ignored us after dropping off menus. When we finally ordered our food we only got part of our order. After getting our salad the one bartender who did... More

Lots and lots of beers to choose from, get the flight and try 4 different ones. I'll say the food was pretty good, not great, but the atmosphere and beer made up for it.

Crossed the street from my hotel the first night and tried this place out. The homemade sausage is a must to try. It's constantly changing but nice to have something that's fresh. Their beer selection was great and I was happy I could sample from local breweries from around the state and outside. We were so happy with the food,... More

We were heading to a show at First Ave, and took the new Blue Line in. This joint is right up the stairs from the train station, so we popped in. They have a fantastic tap beer selection! Next, the menu is simple with lots of options. I had the fish tacos and they did not disappoint. The atmosphere is... More

The food at Republic is excellent. They have a good food selection, and an extensive selection of beer and wine. You can sit inside or outside. They have a large outdoor seating area right on the corner of a less than busy intersection. Inside it feels kind of dark due to the dark color of the wood walls, but it... More

The beer is better than the food but the food isn't bad. Try the cauliflower fritters if you like cauliflower. They are unique and tasty.

The Republic was across the street from our hotel so my party of 8 went here for dinner. The outside patio was fantastic but we were denied seating because we wanted to eat as one large group and the staff would not push two tables together. Disappointing. Instead, we were told to go inside. Too bad we couldn't find the... More

Very nice place to sit outside (weather permitting) have a beer or cider. Smaller menu but very good.. Ask to see what the sausage plate is and the soup for the day. Both were very good (Duck sausage and chorizo soup respectively). Very friendly, efficient service. Dinner for two with drinks was about 35 bucks.
