My wife and I visited here with my brother and sister in law. My wife and I split the chicken sandwich and a hamburger. The hamburger was delicious, the chicken sandwich was ok. The fries were Luke warm at best. For $35.00 with no drinks was a disappointment. My sister in law got the walleye and a side of asparagus... More

We stopped in here for a quick Birthday drink. Staff seemed perplexed 5o even seat us. We ordered a appetizer of the bacon/truffle popcorn which I don't care for you have to like truffles for sure. Pricing seems above average for the area and drinks and food are more upscale so perhaps the pricing is alright. We asked for suggestions... More

Went last Friday for supper arrived about 8.30 managed to get a table for two on the patio after a short wait at the bar, good wine selection to choose from as well as many local seasonal beers. Seated on the lovely compact patio, now came the hard part choosing what to eat, we opted to select a collection of... More

Enjoyed another good meal at this fave. Good craft beers, choice and varied menu and quick and friendly service justify coming back again. Serving size is just right

This is a scratch kitchen, small portions, with just good food that you typically do not see. Do not expect fast service, the place can get busy. So be prepared to order apps and drinks. The mixologist behind the bar is spot on and you will want to try something new. The place can get pricy so I go there... More

The Sample Room lives up to its name, in the sense that the portions seem like "sample" sizes. I guess if you come here not expecting to leave full, then it's a nice place. Based on the prices, I assumed that when I ordered the Fish & Chips, there would be more than one small piece of fish, placed on... More

Stopped into The Sample Room, it has been a while since we were there. Enjoyed the small patio seating area. The speciality drinks are worth exploring. Really enjoyed the sazarac, drink only one, it was enough to make you feel light headed. The food was good. Fish and chips was very good. Will be back to try all the different... More

My wife and I had dinner at The Sample Room last Saturday at 6pm. We were seated immediately on their small outdoor patio. It was a rare warm April day in Minneapolis so considered ourselves fortunate to get that table. We ordered from their ala carte or sample menu. Our first item (they get delivered in no particular order) was... More

If your taste buds deserve a treat, this is the place for you. Great wine options and delicious dishes to share or eat alone. Perfect for couples or a ladies evening :)

The Sample Room is a former 'annex' to the Glueck Brewery where they would roll kegs over to sample the beer. From the outside, it looks like a neighborhood bar but when you sit down, the menu is one of the best in town. Mostly small plates but there's something for everyone. And 'gourmet' is the best way to describe... More
