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!

Very good food and beer menu. Conveniently located right across the street from the Courtyard Minneapolis Downtown Hotel, only two blocks from the University of Minnesota West Bank Campus, and within easy walkig distance of the Theater District and the new Vikings Stadium.

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!

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 that... More

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
