Double Cut Pork chop and the sausage sampler are to die for. Wild Boar hot link is a must try. Great service, great drinks and cool atmosphere. One of my favorites to go to with meat loving friends! You wont leave hungry!

Be very hungry. My wife complained the portions were way too big! Only reason it wasn't 5 stars is the service was slow. But the food was excellent.

I travel to Minneapolis once a month for business and normally eat at the same restaurant every trip. This time I decided to get out of my comfort zone a bit and try some place new. I had heard great things about this restaurant and decided to give them a try. I sat at the bar and ordered a Rib... More

Words cannot do this place justice. The food was absolutely incredible and the bourbon selection was tremendous. The sasuage sampler was awesome, the brussel sprouts were the best I've ever had, the king crab salad was so tasty, and my 20oz Sirloin was cooked to perfection. It's expensive, but it was worth every penny. I will definitely return!

The food here is spectacular. The atmosphere is fun. The service is excellent. The noise is crazy. It's like having an awesome dinner inside a drum kit. Which, if you're up for a fun loud night, is perfect. Probably not the best for an intimate night with one or two couples. I'll definitely go back.
