Large Beer Menu (Beers, Beers and More Beers!)

Dinner and drinks after work as it was close to the hotel. There were five or six of us in total at the table, and our meals came out quickly. Friendly wait staff and bartenders. Pub food for the most part and not overly expensive. Great atmosphere and a nice place to stop in to if you are one... read more

I met a friend here for a couple of beers. This is a great location for a couple of drinks. It is a good mix of people and a busy corner. The beer selection is great and so is the food. This is a good place to take people from out of town!

Republic is right across the street from the U of M, Law School and the Downtown Marriott. I had the Browned Butter Bison Burger and my son had the Chevre Stuffed Lamb Burger. Excellent burgers!! The Boulder Chocolate Porter was awesome. If you like beer and burgers, this is the place to try!

My husband is a beer guy and was very impressed by the tap selection. We sat at the bar and enjoyed a nice conversation with the bartender. It was happy hour so despite just having dinner we had an app and enjoyed the artichoke dip. Fun spot to try some new beers, service appeared much faster inside than out on... More

Republic is not about fine dining, it is about simple pub food and great selection of beers and relaxed atmosphere. What impressed me the most was that the service was always excellent during my visits, even when sitting there with a big group. Their patio is on the sunny side of the street, so it is a nice place to... More

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.
