A nice, laid back option

After a kayaking adventure down the Mississippi, our guide had recommended this location as a better option than the "trendy" feel of Psycho Suzie's. He was so right! Our casual group of 6 enjoyed a few appetizers and drinks on the outside patio. The area would of been too small for a meal, but... read more

This place is a wonderful surprise! Very good, inexpensive happy hour. Great, creative, superb food choices you'll never find anywhere else! It is my go-to place for my friends and I for our bi-weekly get togethers.

We had a relaxing table out on the patio. My husband ate every last bit of the truffled bacon fat popcorn. Our entrees were the mussels and seared scallops, which were flavorful and cooked to perfection. The only complaint would be that the waitress seemed a tad grumpy, and didn't return after our food came out, so my husband had... More

This was not our first choice for dining out, but I'm certainly glad we found it. The Sample Room is a quaint and delicious restaurant in the Sheridan area north of downtown Minneapolis. The residential neighborhood might make parking somewhat of a premium, but if you keep driving around you are bound to find something close. The Sample Room offers... More

Great quality food. Smaller place so the busiest times may not be good for larger groups. Our group of 10 was easily serviced at the early lunch hour.

We were perfectly willing to wait the 15 minutes we were told it would take to get a table but after an hour, when we were next on the list to be seated and a booth opened up and it was given to a newly arrived group we decided to say something to the host but he wouldn't talk to... More

I come to The Sample Room quite a bit because I love their vegetable dishes. They change it up pretty frequently but there are always some favs on the menu like brussel sprouts in harissa sauce. Yum. The service is always good and the building is very pretty. They usually have some weird movie on the TV by the bar... More

Great food, drinks and service in a very cozy small place that makes you feel at home. Try the appetizers, the chicken and soups. And... everything in between.

The negative: the room was cold and the service spotty. Positive: Great menu, drinks and food. I'll go again. Just wear layers in the winter.

Six of us met for lunch and we all were very pleased with the quality of our meals. I had the Reuben sandwich, and it was terrific - the meat was very tender and the slaw delicious. My husband had the Italian sandwich and the soup of the day and he enjoyed both very much. Our friends had the beet... More
