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.

I would strongly advise against going here! On a recent visit, we waited for over 40 minutes just to get our food...and our drink order had still not come! When we finally hunted down a manager and our waitress, they seemed perplexed as to how to resolve it (i.e., go to the bartender and tell him you need the drinks... More

This is the place for Seven Corners beer and patio. And if it is raining, they have a great inside space. To be clear, this is the ONLY place for beer and food in Seven Corners. Fantastic beer selection, all on discount happy hour. And really excellent food. Their burger is one of the best in the Cities. Great service.... More

The people were nice and the weather was great but the food was not outstanding. I ordered the steak frites salad ala carte and it was fine, not a huge portion but fine. For the money I have had much better portions and just overall a more memorable meal. My husband had the batter fried fish and it too was... More
