“Nice place for a quick meal before the Twins game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Food was good, service efficient and quick. The atmosphere is great albeit a bit noisy but it's a bar so expected. We went right before a Twins game and were in and out in an hour. Can't complain about that!

“Good food & German beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The cheddar beer soup was outstanding. A beautiful beer hall full of old historic pictures with a great staff and a great menu at reasonable prices. Lots of German beer here!

“Perfect Private Party Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Sneaky little slice of Minneapolis. LOVE the decor and could see myself returning to explore a more normal visit. We attended a private party in their draped, back room. It was perfect celebrating my nephew's 30th surprise birthday party with friends and family. It has a fireplace, but mid summer fires aren't what you long for. However, come winters in Minnesota, that's a nice amenity! The staff were attentive to the guests and the buffet was not your typical "bar food" and was excellent! You'd be happy to host a get-together there.

“A good choice near the ballpark, they've got Furious on tap!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner at Gluek's. Nice beer choices and the food was not gourmet but good. The hostess was pretty chilly when we asked not to be placed at a table in a party room...with a party going on. Really? Who would do that? Nothing like sitting next to a stranger's balloons and birthday cake. We got good service once the table issue was solved. If we were taking in another ball game we wouldn't hesitate to go back. It's just steps from the field.
