“A great place to escape to”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This is a neat pub with atmosphere and good beer. I'm not sure how "British" the food is, although it was tasty and filling.
The rooftop is a great place to get away from the noise and congestion on the street outside, but it was very crowded when we stopped by, making it a challenge to get service. Even so, the people - servers and patrons alike - were friendly, making us feel at home.
Definitely on our list for a return visit.

“Wonderful British Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I love the, not greasy, fish and chips and the cock-a-leeky soup, both very good. The drinks are good as well and the bill won't hit you too hard. The atmosphere is wonderul, even a picture of the Queen and a fireplace seating area.

“Many Good Memories at Brit's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I have been a fan of this bar even since I became of legal drinking age. The best time to visit Brit's is in the summer when the bowling green is open. Sitting outside on the lawn with a black currant Strongbow has become a favorite downtown pastime of mine. Food is amazing, and there are always plenty of comfortable seats and fun people to watch.

“Watch the Holidazzle Parade Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This must be the best place to watch the Holidazzle parade in downtown Minneapolis. The food is just OK, even for an Irish pub, but the the atmosphere is fun, the beer selection is good. Get up to the third floor early, order dinner and beer, and sit by the windows for a great view of the parade while you stay toasty warm.

“great pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We've been going to Brit's once a year around Christmas, and really enjoy it. I'm a big fish an chips fan, and they do it right. Good batter, nice flaky fish. The batter recipe is much improved in recent years, so if you haven't been in a while, try it again. The beer list is good if you like English ales. I've visited several times in the summer, and lawn bowling is VERY fun. Service is fair to good.
