They hype is 100 percent worth it. The staff is very well informed about what is good on the menu and are quick to make sure that your are taken care of. They split our tab up with exactly what we ordered very easily which is not expected at a place like this.

This is, hands down, the best meal you will eat in the Twin Cities. You will talk about it for a long time afterwards. And best of all? You'll have a better time when you go there a second or third or 20th time than you did the last. The beer, bourbon and wine selections are also outstanding. Any restaurant... More

This was one of the best meals I've had ever. If you are in a group, get the sausage sampler as an appetizer and share it. It gives you a good cross section of what this restaurant can do. The preparation and presentation of everything is original and imaginative. The drink offerings are endless! Our waiter was fantastic. I had... More

My wife and I had never been there before but we heard it was a great place. We were seated outside. We thought we would just grab a small bite before we went to the Dakota ( a jazz place). But the menu was so luscious, we ended up ordering the chef's specials. No regrets, great drinks, well worth it.... More

Super Great Food and service. The Pork Chop is something else. My New York steak was done just right. Try the sausage sampler it was a very good appetizer. The fried green tomatoes and extra large fries were supper side dishes. My wine glass was never empty. We will definitely return. Thanks for a great meal.

I recently ate here with three family members and we all loved it! We ordered a number of dishes to share which it seems is a common way to order. We started with the Sausage Sampler Platter and loved the Berkshire Pork and Cheddar as well as the Wild Boar Hot Link. The Texas Beef Link was good as well,... More

This was a great place for dinner. We sat on their lovely patio, and had great craft beers. The cheese plate was so good, the croquettes were very tasty, and the slow cooked rib was to die for! It was probably the best fine-dining meal I've had in quite a while.

There is a nice outside patio, indoor bar and indoor eating area. The open kitchen is always busy. The food includes spicy to mild smoky flavors. Lots of beef and sausage dishes tho there are a few vegetarian dishes and a few seafood ones. All are good sized! Service was great and fast and explained the individual dishes really well.... More

I always have a great time and great service at B and B. Best variety of sausage and unique flavors I can find in Mpls. Staff are very knowledgable and make good suggestions. I also like the beer garden area in the rear.

Thank Wade D
