Crappy service. Burger ok. Waitress was probably a thief. Sorry I did not get her name. I will not be back ever.

We are visiting for parents' weekend at my daughter's college. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, but it was worth the wait. Service was "Minnesota nice" and we all enjoyed our meals. Modestly priced by NY standards. Burgers were cooked perfectly to order. The monthly special was a pulled pork burger with cheese and coleslaw. Cooked... More

We found this local spot on TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. A neighborhood bar/burger joint. The burgers were fantastic ... and the sweet potato fries are excellent (light sprinkle of cinnamon sugar and chipotle dipping sauce). We were visiting Macalester College (about 1 mile away) and were lucky to find!

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!...
