We stopped into Haskell's to kick off a night out with friends their cocktails are great and they make'em right. Great place for people watching inside or outside. Their outside seating give you views of Lake Minnetonka. The food is bar/tavern food, however if that's what you are looking for you won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for down to earth kind of place to grab a drink and some food this is the ticket. Summertime it's a hot spot as it's right across from many of the charter boats in Excelsior. Lot's of entertainment in the area if you like lakes, ice cream, view...that sort of thing. The food is pretty basic... More

This place is especially great in the warm weather to sit out on their railing to people/car watch. Their burgers are the best thing on the menu. You'll find your regulars inside (and outside smoking). There's also pull tabs and a band every so often.

My hubby loves this place. Nice joint to stop in for a drink and it feels like a community. Everyone knows everyone. Friendly. Good drinks. Decent bar food - I really like the Cuban sandwich. Go see Reno the bartender.

Food is average at best BUT ir is across the street from the lake and sitting on the sidewalk deck with a pitcher of beer (Yes they have pitchers) is great people watching in the warm season. Not the best for kids, this is a working mans drinking bar inside.

Stopped 2x's last week. Hubby loves this place. 1. Thursday bingo was actually fun (and free) 2. Cuban & Reuben sandwiches are yummy 3. I just found out that you can buy good wine next door and bring it to the dive bar and they will only charge a $5 uncorking fee. So hubs can hang this dive bar and... More

On our company outing on a boat, we had an hour to kill. We all went in Haskell's for a beverage before boarding the ship. The bartender and the waitress were very nice and accommodating.

Haskell's is more of a "drinking mans" bar. It is attached to the wine and liquor store, so if you want a drink and some "fried" food while shopping for wines, this is the place. A local hang out for the regulars for sure.

It's bar food. Nothing I have tried is anything I would make a trip there for, but I have enjoyed each dish I had ordered. Face it, nobody goes there looking for the best meal in the world. We want booze, atmosphere, fun, good service & great location. This place has all of that in spades & the food being... More
