I brought my family to enjoy the burgers and wings. All the food was wonderful and our server Angie R was absolutely fabulous!! Thank you for the wonderful experience. I will wear my newly acquired t-shirt proudly.

Wife and I went for first time. Great little neighborhood location with plenty of street parking. I had the Moliter (spelling?) burger. It was juicy and oozing with cheese. The onion rings were also cooked to perfection. I will return for more.

Although you often have to stand a bit to wait for a table....it's always worth it. The burgers are the best and the fries are dusted with just a bit of cinnamon....delish.

The food was definitely worth the wait. A surprisingly small bar/restaurant with a waiting list, and for good reason. The burgers are some of the best I have ever had. Fresh cut fries top it off. They were even able to accommodate two vegetarians with great bean burgers. It will definitely be a regular stop on visits to St. Paul.... More

Lots of great marks for this pub! First, it's not far from the airport, so I got there in about 8 mins. Parking was a snap (I parked right in front of the door, on the curb), and they had other places available. They opened the door for me, greeted me, and made me feel welcome from the very start!...

Everyone raves about the burgers but the cheese curds steal the show. The honey glazed bacon cheese curds are wonderful and not to be missed.

So I saw Guy Fieri triple D and had the opportunity to go to the Nook. Was excited so I was hoping it lived up to my expectations. It definitely did. Started with the deep fried green beans. Ended with a burger to end all burgers. Stuffed with chorizo and pepper jack cheese topped with onions and bacon. Sweet potato... More

What a great little pub, tucked away in St.Paul. Very unassuming, small pub, almost a "hole in the wall." We had a large group (12), so we had quite a long wait for a table. Not surprising for such a small place. All the food was very good. Three of us had a burger I think was called the Big... More

Its a very good burger but could not give an excellent mark, Its pretty greasy. I just don't think its as good as everyone says it is. Service is excellent however and its a great spot for lunch.

Thank jim m
