Holy Cow! (or Pork?)

We went here with reservations on a Friday evening. We arrive a few minutes early and had to wait 5-10 minutes for our table, which was fine. You come here to eat delicious meat. If that doesn't sound like something you'd enjoy perhaps this place isn't for you. I personally was in heaven. We... read more

We dined here on our trip to Minneapolis for the International Motorcycle Show In Feb 2014. On a suggestion from the hotel concierge he made us reservations and we were not disappointed! The food was incredible, especially the Double Stuffed Smoke Pork chop, OMG it was perfectly done and easily enough for 2 people. While our specific server was a... More

We dined here on Valentine's Day and after months of waiting and having read all the reviews, we had pretty high expectations. We loved every aspect of our dining experience. The waiter was very attentive and he made good recommendations. The portions were generous and we shared all of our dishes. The Charcuterie sampler plate was wonderful. Loved every bite... More

Great food, incredible meat and a unique twist on many dishes. I loved the long rib w tabasco BBQ sauce. We ordered the sausage appetizer. Even the women, who weren't big meat eaters, loved it. The buffalo brussel sprouts were incredible! We have been twice and look forward to going again.

Amazing. Simply Amazing. A class food and drinks. A class serving and ambiance. I could go on and on with how amazing this place is but that would do injustice to this fabulous establishment.

This place is incredible. If you like meat, this is the place for you. The restaurant has an incredible selection of meats they've made themselves, plus tons of sausages. I've gone a few times and the bar tender remembers me and what I like to drink each time even though there's usually 1-3 months between times due to living out... More

One of the most 'cool' restaurant in the Minneapolis region. It sure has a cool European flavour to it together with an open kitchen and a great bar. It was very pleasant busy but make sure you reserver a table prior to coming over. A huge selection in beers and drinks and some great specials grilled dishes

Went for dinner last night with a party of 6 for a birthday celebration. Our server was very cool - funny, laid back, and gave practical advice. I wish I could remember her name to give her a direct compliment (lady with short black hair- you are great). Everyone in our party ordered different items. I sampled most of them... More
