Ate dinner on a very busy night. We were lucky to score a table. The hamburger that I ordered was average.

We stopped in after a Sunday afternoon Twins game. Hard to find a table it's such a popular place! We thankfully found a table and it was worth it!! Delicious meal, friendly, prompt service, fun atmosphere! Great place!

Neat place to visit. No happy hour before events. Fish and chips was ok. So was corned beef. Prices in line with area. Will go somewhere else before the next game.

This little pub is in an excellent location to hit before or after a Twins or Timberwolves game. The staff is super friendly and fun. Get there early before a game as it gets busy.

Over an hour to get food. Came cold and greasy. Didn't provide silverware or napkins. Server ignored us. Had to go to the bar ourselves to get a beer
