My family wasn't impressed with the burgers considering it was touted as the best in the cities and we came across town to try them. Too greasy. Good cheese was the only good thing. Even though I'm a meat eater, I was not thrilled with your t-shirts worn by all staff. The shirt said "Meat is Murder....Tasty, Tasty Murder." Seriously?... More

The service is great and the food is amazing. Great prices and a great atmosphere to have a burger and brew. There brews rotate seasonally and is often busy. Its def a stop to have if you like to try good food. A local hole in the wall that is recognized.

The best food I had in the Twin Cities. The Paul Molitor burger was fantastic and the service was great.

Want a great burger in an awesome atmosphere? Then this is the place for you. They may not have invented the juicy lucy, but they have perfected it! Their fries complement the superb burgers, and it is all at a fair price. I usually get the Lodge Burger (which is not a juicy lucy) and I am always pleased. This... More

This is a cannot miss while in St. Paul We arrived at 1:00 pm on Saturday and the place was a buzz. We opted for two seats at the bar and a warm greeting from Michael. The menu is huge and I now can say I found my spot when asked the "Best" hamburger ever? The Nook!!!! The stuffed burger... More

As a visitor from Boston, I asked: "What is a juicy lucy?" The reply: "You have to try it! It possibly was invented right here in St. Paul - but then again, you could hear anyone all throughout the Midwest make the same claim." That was enough to peak my interest, since I like to try geographically unique food. I... More

The Nook is my fav place for a juicy lucy in the cities. My favorite is the Paul Molitor - a juicy lucy with pepperjack cheese. And the fresh cut fries the burgers come with are just as good (if not better) then the burgers. I love this place. Sometimes you have to wait but it is worth it!

My husband watches Triple D all the time, and we saw this place on it, so when we visited the area from Cincinnati we had to stop here. We brought our daughter & her husband, who have lived here for years but never had been here. They WILL be back! We may also come back when we visit again. The... More
