“Great place for food, beer and outside seating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

When we were attending a wedding over Labor Day on Saturday, a large number of us (12) were looking for a place to have dinner and drinks. Our local Hosts (the bride and groom) recommended the Republic.

We walked over from our hotel and in a matter of minutes, they set up a table outside (beautiful night) large big enough for everyone. There were many other tables filled with other patrons. Our Waitress was there quickly, gave us good suggestions and was helpful answering our questions.

For drinks many of us went with their beer flight selection. For $10 we each got 3 8oz beers of our choice. There were many to choose from and even though we all seemed to pick different beers, they all would be worth ordering on their own.

For our dinners, we were all over the place. We ordered everything from pulled pork sandwiches, regular, turkey and veggie burgers as well as fish tacos. Of course, we consumed many, many orders of their sweet potato and regular fries. Everything came out to us all at once, hot and very tasty. Even though I probably tasted a little of all the dishes the fish tacos to me was the best.

We would definitely recommend the Republic to others and return when we are back in Minneapolis.

“BELT is delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

I was fortunate to stop at this establishment for lunch. BLTs are a favorite of mine so when I saw the BELT I thought why not try it. The sandwich was beyond simply a BLT with egg on it. Their menu offers an array of food that is not only so yummy but healthy too. This is the menu offerings that were available: http://www.republicmn.com/dining.html

“Quiet Sunday lunch - friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed a quiet, end-of-weekend lunch at Republic. Our group included seniors, 50 year olds, and 18-25 year olds. It was nice but windy outside so we decided to eat inside. We had the place to ourselves. I don't know why! Our waiter was very friendly and sharp. The food was delicious. They happily accommodated a couple special food perpetration requests and got everything right. We will definitely return when back in the area.

“Great Location and Great Beer selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

The restaurant had great selection of beers as compared to the other restaurants and bars nearby. Bartenders were very nice and food was good. Will go back again!

“Outstanding Happy Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We've been in twice, both times for happy hour/early dinner. Happy hour features $3 American beers and discounted burgers, tacos, and fries. On our first visit, we had the pulled pork tacos and the Serrano Ham hamburger, and an order of fries. Add in a Surly Furious and it came to $18.99. Second visit consisted of a Bell's Two Hearted, a Sweet Child of Vine from Fulton, the bacon cheddar burger, and the fish tacos. Again, $18.99. Two could split the fish tacos. They were generous. Everything was tasty.

I don't recall what Sgt. Preston's looked like, but it appears that not much redecorating had been done. We'll be back though, and likely bringing others!
