This pub is amazing! The burgers are fantastic and you get so much food for your money! We drive an hour and a half just to get a burger! Totally worth the wait for a seat!

We were in town from the East Coast for a wedding, and the groom insisted that we go to Blue Door. Everybody got a different burger, and they were all amazing! Inside out is the best way to describe them---cheese inside the burger. Lots of interesting combinations to try as well. One of us got just a "normal" burger, and... More

I stopped by for lunch and asked the bartender for what was most popular. The kind and attentive man recommended the "Cease and Desist". Fantastic burger with gooey goodness and a perfectly cooked and seasoned patty. One of the better burgers I've had.

We had lunch here. We both had burgers and deep fried green beans. The green beans were wonderful. We also shared a plate of boneless wings. They serve a lot of food so were not able to eat all of it, but it was really good. The burgers were phenomenal. If you cannot handle a lot of fat intake with... More

Ate lunch here with my wife & two kids. Had burgers, wings & onion rings. All were obviously made with high quality ingredients. Nothing fancy here but a wonderful place to grab a beer(nice selection on tap) & get good eats.

We were brought here by some friends when we visited. It was a Tuesday evening and thought this place is probably dead by this time....NOPE! 45 minute wait. Was it worth it? Um...yes! THE.BEST.BURGER.I.HAVE.EVER.HAD! No joke. I usually get burgers wherever I go and this took the cake. I had the burger of the month and made it a cowboy.... More

Our go to in the cities for an awesome burger. Love the atmosphere. I wish they had one in Rochester. Our favorite is like a super deluxe, way better than a Big Mac.

My first time visiting St. Paul and Minneapolis, and my friend drove e straight to Blue Door from the airport for lunch. It has all the charm of St. Paul, very laid back crowd, friendly, fast, and inviting (the best thing about the midwest). The service was excellent, the food is heavy, but worth it. Famous for beer and the... More

While out rummaging through antique stores we decided to grab lunch at the Blue Door. We were lucky in that we were seated pretty quickly. They were very busy, yet service was friendly and prompt. We each ordered a different beer. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful in assisting us in making a good individual choice. I am not... More
