I love the fact that they have happy hour until 6pm daily. Also they have a grass fed burger that comes with a small salad for only $6 at happy hour. also so many great beer and hard ciders to choose from. In the summer a very nice patio too.

We had a big group and everyone's food looked extremely good- very well presented. I had the risotto. Taste was good so combined with food presentation, the overall package was good but I wouldnt go there just for the taste of the food but for ambiance.

walked across the street from the Courtyard and had a fantastic burger. The atmosphere here was very nice. the style was a mix of old school pub with stained glass, large wooden doors and old time bar. very nice service and a great look.

The service is poor and the manager is rude. Came in after swimming and relaxing following a Vikings game. Place was practically empty. Waitress took our order, brought the food & drinks and never saw her after. Went up to ask manager for the bill and was met with tantrums from him.

great build your own bloody mary bar on the weekend, good house mix, good local vodka. They have a brunch style menu, more breakfast items than anything, but the food was very good and service was great. Nice outdoor patio area to hang out in.

Incredible choice of fine draft beers, paired with a friendly atmosphere, good food and a nice service. We only had a one night stay in Minneapolis and were pleased, that in walking distance of our hotel we discovered the beer garden of the "Republic".

Republic is a mixed bag. Great beer and good food but spotty and slow service. Been here many times and management could be tighter. Recommended casual.

My good friends live right across the street from Republic and when I stay there we hit the Sunday Brunch with the Bloody Mary Bar!!! Love it!! Don't pass up the steak & eggs! Breakfast in a bar! :)

So the beer choices alone was enough to make me love the place but the food...... worth every calorie for sure. The burgers are perfect and the fries are a must have, served with homemade ketchup and aoli that are the best I've ever tasted!

Great Food. My wife loved the cauliflower soup and our daughter loved their "upscale" grilled cheese sandwich. Our server was delightful. We highly recommend Republic.
