Honestly we've liked everything we've tried here when we visit. However Reubens are my favorite and theirs is amazing! It's thick and what I like is that by the time you finish one half, the other half is not soggy (it is at most restaurants)....More

As lovers of chef dinners, we were delighted to come upon this one with a new twist--beer pairings. No lines, since this special dinner required prepay, reservations. What a treat! Can't say enough good about the chef's creative selections of meat and fish, garnished with...More

We had a recommendation from a friend to check out Ward 6. We went late on a Sat. evening. It was busy but we were able to grab two spots at the bar. Like the vibe. There was a singer performing - nice and mellow....More

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent, the drinks are great and they serve craft beer from around Minnesota. The staff are wonderful. I just cannot say enough about this place. It even has the original bar from the Hamm's Brewing Company.

Hi, we don't take reservations for any size, due to our small size. We only have 2 larger tables which are designed for 5-6, but can fit 7-8 if people are willing to be a bit tight. Otherwise you could split up into two... More

They can definitely handle a party of 8. They do not take reservations but I have been there at around 5:00 and had no problems getting a table. I think they start getting busy at 6:00 or 6:30.

Excellent food and drink in a friendly atmosphere. We have 20 taps of Minnesota craft beer, classic and new cocktails, a surprising wine list, made from scratch food with high quality (mostly local) ingredients.
