“Home to some of Minneapolis's best comfort foods!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Brit's is the place to go in the summer for outside dining on Nicolett Mall but we enjoy visiting year round when we are hungry for their specialties, which you just can't find (or can't find as good) elsewhere. No claims for being calorie conscious during our dining ventures to Brits, but if you are on a diet, I suggest splitting items. Hubby's favorites include Stilton cheeseburger, cod pieces, Scotch eggs and tomato soup/gourmet grilled sandwich combo. We all love the fish and chips. I can't often pass the Cornish pastry by on the menu, although I order it without the brown gravy and mushy pieces, preferring ketchup and coleslaw. Bike rider friendly.

“Basic pub food and beer, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This place really is a classic pub in Minneapolis, on Nicollet Mall it cannot be beat in the summer. Known for their fish and chips, and they are good. The food is greasy, lots of it is deep-fried. But the experience is why this place is fun. You have to sit on the back roof-deck in the summer. People spend hours up here after work for happy-hours or on nice weekend days. If you know how to lawn-bowl, good luck signing up and playing. The staff isn't necessarily the friendliest, because it is often so busy and wait time can take awhile in the summer. The owner is a really friendly man from the UK. The atmosphere is fun.

“Great British Atmosphere..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

My son and I was in town and while looking for some good food when we lucked up on this great spot. The Scott Eggs are a must try. We will definitely be back whenever I'm in the Twin Cities.
