We were in town from Florida visiting and my sister-in-law brought us here. The service was great, the eclectic bar food lunch menu had a lot of great choices, and the price was good. Great feel inside with the tall ceilings and retro look. We had the stuffed hamburgers and everyone at the table was raving about it. I had... More

Love the atmosphere (lots of wood paneling and chalkboards) and the food. Go if you love cheesy hamburgers and beer, and a great happy hour, don't go if you don't! The menu is limited, and their focus is on creative juicy Lucy's.

This place recommended by a long-time resident of the area was on our "bucket list." We made it on a Sunday afternoon. Timing was great as there was a booth next to the kitchen that was perfect for the 4 of us. The service and discussion about soccer was also nice. Went w as the World Cup is waiting for... More

They have every type of Juicy Lucy you can imagine but my favorite is the Cajun Bluesy. It is a cajun spiced burger with blue cheese in the center! Every burger I have tried has been good. They also have great tots and other apps too. I take every visitor I have to MN here. It is a must for... More

When you're in the cities, there's only 2 places to go for the best burger. This place is #1 (and I've tried about 20 "top" burger restaurants in the last 3 years). My favorite is the Pastramilicious at the Longfellow location. The burgers are big enough that we get 1 house salad (made with real greens, not iceberg lettuce), 1... More

Can't go wrong at the Blue Door Pub. Excellent, quality burgers, awesome tots, and a nice beer list. The cheese curds are the best in town and the spam balls are a must try, even if only just once. Take their challenge if you dare- essentially, you get a punch on a card for each burger you try at their... More

Visited with a bunch of friends, most of whom have been here before. They all love it. We did too! Great beer, burgers, and service. Got excellent beer recommendations. It did fill up at lunch time. We were fortunate enough to have friends who were smart enough to get us there early. Try it, especially if you're a burger lover!

A great burger at a exceptional price. I had the french dip blucy.. thats right meat dipped in meat sauce, can anyone tell me how it can get any better than that? I also had a side of the deep fried green beans which were equally as excellent. They have a decent selection of local/craft brews from which I can... More

This place serves great burgers. The only issue with the place is the small size. We were promptly seated outside when we visited them at around 2 pm (drinks not served outside). The burgers and fries did not disappoint at all. I would recommend this place for its burgers.

Loved the food here. However, it was tight seating already 11:30 a.m. There were 8 of us - hard to hear those at other end of table. Service was ok, but not spectacular. I had the mushroom Swiss burger with battered green beans - delicious!
