“Great Wings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Found this place through Trip Advisor after hiking at a Minnesota state park. Awesome wings to start our meal. Ragtop Shell's beer made specifically for this restaurant was great also. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stop back again.

“Perfect lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We were on the way back to Minneapolis Airport and this is a great stop. Downtown Smothered Turkey Sandwich was a good choice, kind of like a Hot Brown in Louisville! Wonderful beer selections with some local stuff to choose from. Nice dining room and an easy location downtown. Nearby building construction had the street somewhat shut down but nearby parking was easy and free for a couple hours. Service was perfect and very helpful as to beer choices!

“Attention to detail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

we had a large party for Mothers day. Service was top notch. Food was above average and you had the feeling you were wanted. You felt like they cared if everything was going well. I definitely will be back. I also liked the layout of the bar area.

“Great find thru Google”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Googled and found this restaurant in downtown Mankato. Great IPA draft beers, nice atmosphere, prompt service and good food. Thanks for this gem of a place. Even had a few people enjoying the patio on the last weekend in March in Minnesota--sun definitely makes it warmer than the 40 degrees it was. Then traveled a few blocks away for dessert at Mom & Pops, a new ice cream shop.
