This is the place for a beer in NE Minneapolis and a burger. The junk burger is yummy along with tater tots. It makes a great meal. Wait staff always helpful.

We had a huge group, at least 12 of us, for happy hour. The server was fantastic! He was very attentive. We ordered multiple different kinds of tater tots from their expansive menu. It was so fun passing them around and trying all the different kinds. Our drink orders were filled quickly and they were delicious. The atmosphere was super... More

I went to this place with my friend on somebodys recommendation and found the ambience very nice . good menu. But they cheat u on tips. My friends warned me about the restaurant habits of cheating on tips. I ate a burger for $12 and gave a tip of $2 but when the credit card statement came the amount posted... More

Celebrated my daughters birthday here this week. Her husband had called to reserve a table in the bar area and we were given a small high top and felt very crammed in. Later when another couple left we were able to extend our space a bit--on our own. Server was friendly, but way too busy to be attentive. Surprising for... More

Good pub, place to hang out. The tater tots here are ridiculous! Seriously, so good. We just had beers and tots but the staff was friendly and the atmosphere is really cool.

This place has a truly great selection of craft beers and servers with the knowledge to couple your tastes with a new brew. Great service and food was tasty as well. We tried the tater tots stuffed with cheese and delicious dipping sauce. For dinner, i tried the peanut butter bacon burger and it was surprisingly tasty. I will be... More

We had Sunday brunch here. Our food took a long time to arrive at the table, and the staff apologized several times. We did not complain, so we were very surprised when the manager/owner stopped by our table and also apologized. He took 75% off our bill AND gave us free cupcakes to go. We were shocked by the generous... More

Best burgers you will find, and the cupcakes are fantastic. Not to mention their large selection of beer.
