I was here with two college friends and had a good burger. I decided to be dangerous and go for "The Nookie Burger" which was huge so bring your "A" game! Also I had a pretty rare beer. Sculpin IPA from Ballst Point, which was delightful on tap. The atmosphere upstairs is pretty cool but downstairs is a bowling alley,... More

WOWZA, WOWZA, WOWZA! These burgers blew our minds!! Obviously, we saw them on T.V. and decided since we were only going to be 2 hrs away from St. Paul, it was a no brainer. Yes, we kinda planned our whole day around it and yes, we missed most of the Bears game for it, but dang if it wasn't worth... More

We went for lunch on a weekend and were lucky to get in at 11:30! The place really does a great business. I had the Firehouse burger and my daughter had the Lodge burger. Both fantastic. Delicious meat, bun, toppings. The spicy mustard on mine was out of this world! Her fries were also fantastic. The onion rings I ordered... More

We stopped for lunch and had an amazing meal. We had the Maple Bacon Cheese curds and they were awesome! I also ordered the Juicy, which was also awesome! The only downside is we were sitting in the basement by the bowling alley and it was loud. The atmosphere was great!

If Paul Molitor is nearly as good as the burger named after him, he definitely should be the Minnesota Twins next manager. The burgers and fries are fantastic! If you want the full atmosphere, sit downstairs where the bowling alley is. Support these local pub/restaurants because we will miss them if they're all gone.

This is my favorite burger place. The Lucy is really good but a little too big for me but a Joe Mauer is perfect along with their fabulous fries. Yum, lunch at the Nook is calling.

A friend took us to the Nook for a late night dinner. There was a line out the door when we arrived so we grabbed a beer at the bar (Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA) and sat outside while we waited for a table. The hostess was right on the money at about a 35 min wait. We were seated downstairs... More
