“Great Scene, beer and food”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Pub 500 offers a delicious menu ranging from drunken steaks to yummy salads and everything in between. The recipes, which I discovered last night, have an extensive lineage from old Mankato favorites such as Stoney's and the Holiday House! They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner paired with the best beer selection in town ~ you must try the bread pudding paired with the Schell's chimney sweep (who woulda thought?!) The atmosphere is sophisticated enough for a business luncheon or happy hour but transitions nicely to a fun bar scene with live music.

“Excellent beer and food pairing event. Thank you!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Our group of friends enjoyed an amazing beer and food pairing at Pub 500 last night. Beer cheese soup, AmaBlu cheese salad, walleye, and a perfectly-prepared steak with all of the trimmings. The pairings began with an artichoke-spinach appetizer and ended with their homemade bread pudding. Delicious!
You won't finding a local restaurant with an atmosphere, menu, or beer selection that compares with the Pub.
