Wanted a quick bite to eat & a bar drink! Great popcorn also! Supper time on a Thursday evening in Austin. Quiet evening but still a hopping place. Food was great as was the service. Not a huge place when things are busy downtown but we seemed to hit it at the right time.

I've always had a very tasty meal and great service here. Very close walk from the SPAM Museum. Cold beer, tasty apps, very good entrees and fun atmosphere. The burgers are exceptionally good.

Always a good place to go. Friendly people. Bar is small and they are usually busy. Does get loud sometimes. But all in all food is very good. I got pulled pork. It was excellent. Husband got chicken. Very good as well. Love the popcorn machine. Munch while you wait.

I am a traveling Ob/Gyn physician (drcathylbagleydotcom) who discovered Austin, Minnesota this afternoon GPS misdirected to elsewhere routes. Fortunately, it took me on a course through this restaurant's lovely city and its SPAM Museum. Hungry after my self-guided tour, I asked one museum gift shop clerks where in town I could find a great salad. Unanimously, they shouted, "B&J's Bar... More

Not the normal bar and grill food for sure. They have popcorn made and you can get it yourself, trust me the movie theaters could learn a thing of two- it's that good. They have nightly specials on the menu with soup, sandwiches, salad son top of all the appetizers. They have some of the best cheese curds around when... More

After you visit the Spam museum, hop around the corner to this bar for some Spam sliders. The house chips were tasty too!

We usually meet friends for drinks and supper. The menu is varied and it's not hard to choose something that's good. It's bar food on steroids. Great hamburgers, soups and specials.
