World Famous Happy hour

I stopped in here with some friends after Rock the Garden at the Walker. It was fairly crowded and our waitress rounded us up two for ones before the special ended. I will give her props for pushing us to order before the deadline, but I feel like you just get two smaller glasses. We order some... read more

One of the best Mpls dive bars. Great burgers and onion rings cheap. It is what it is. Here in Australia they try to recreate the dive bar experience without the soul.

This bar is nasty. The bartender was wearing a leopard jumpsuit and slippers! What the heck? The staff is super rude and look as if they have not showered in the last month. Eeew eeeew eeew! We walked in, tried to get a drink, when it took more than 5 minutes to get a beer, we decided to leave.

This used to be my go to place for Saturday morning breakfast as the eggs benedict was made with love. Some time in the past couple of years they lost their love. Heck, even the bloody mary's were lacking substance. So sad.

We often go to Lyle's when we are visiting our daughter in the Twin Cities. It is a good place to get decent food and inexpensive drinks while watching sports. The service is always excellent. We highly recommend Lyle's.

On our regular Minneapolis visits a stop at Lyle's is a must. Great bar with an atmosphere you do not find that often anymore. In the anonymus world today going to Lyle's is like coming home. Great juke box, legendary Happy Hour, excellent drinks, friendly service ... what do you want more? The best burgers in town! Val and her... More

First, let me say that this place SAYS they have Happy Hour but, when you get there its a totally dfiferent story and I honestly, have no idea how they have gotten away wit it for soo many years. If its Happy Hour, why is a TOP SHELF MARGARITA $6.50 plus 2.00 for an extra THEN they added another $1.00... More

Liquor Lyle's came as a recommendation from a local friend, and we're glad to have taken his advice. Good wait staff and an original watering hole setting, along with late night menu and generous offering of beer and spirits. Big wings, tasty chili+nachos and also tried the mini corn dogs, all great late night fare. Wish we could have gotten... More

My husband and I went here to eat one evening. We are 55 years old, and my husband's hair has gone completely gray. Put it this way.....we absolutely look our age. However, the waitress with the dark hair and dred locks carded us and informed us that because my husband's license was expired, they legally could not serve us. She... More
