Stopped for lunch on Valentine's Day!

Incredible food! A real gem! Although it is small, the fun atmosphere, excellent service and food outweigh the space. The burgers and onion rings are truly better than average and worth the wait in line. Its a busy place, so something good is definitely happening and the word is getting OUT!

Just got back from the Blue Door Pub.....GREAT dining experience. My girlfriend is a Saint Paul native so we had to go for Juicy Lucy's on my first visit to town so this is where we went. We started with the cheese curds which were DELICIOUS and then moved on to the piece de resistance....the Blucy. I tried the Frency... More

Small location that fills up fast, but the quality and variety will keep you coming back. Fried green beans are an excellent option instead of fries and the rings are taste and large. A favorite appetizer are the Spam balls. I’m working my way through the distinct selection of burgers and have not found an unlikeable one yet.

I have been hearing about this place for over a year but everytimre we stop by there is a line waiting to get in. This time we arrived within 5 minutes of their opening on a very cold Sat. morning. We were immediately seated by our server Steffani (who provided some helpful tips on the beer menu) and within 30... More

As the destination burger places proliferate, flavor and service are left at the door. I have been to the Blue Door Pub twice. The buns on the burgers are fresh and tasty. There I said something positive!! This pub has taken the "Juicy Lucy Lunacy" to a new level. Lets focus on overcooked blue cheese on a an overcooked burger.... More

This place is absolutely delicious. The twin cities favorite burger, but with bleu cheese. They also have a great selection of good beer. The restaurant is small, in a great way. Funky friendly staff who make good suggestions for things to try.

I came here for a takeout order for myself and a coworker. The place was packed on a Friday at lunch. The food was good. I ordered the fries with my classic Blucy. The tater tots looked better, so I think I will try that next time. The cheesy was so gooey and delicious.

There's always a wait for a reason. Plan on it! It's worth it. This is our favorite casual date spot. Great beer and awesome food. We both love the Jiffy Burger and cajun tots. The service is always friendly and prompt. (We like to go on a nicer day and go for a walk or grab a beer and relax... More

I went here with some girlfriends - when we meet, we only pick local, privately-owned places. We went to the location in St. Paul (there's a second one in Mpls). It was my first visit, so I was not familiar with some of the unique burger choices. I went for something a little more mainstream; my burger was great, and... More
