Went here for the KDWB Owl City performance with some friends. The stage was in a decent location, and we even got some free beers from the whiskey girls. We ordered the nachos for a snack and they were BY FAR the worst nachos I have ever had in my life. There was iceberg lettuce on the chips, unmelted cheese, and to top it off...COLD, watery chicken. The chicken was not edible, I literally spit it out. Luckily one of my friends ordered it. If it was me I would have since it back in an instant. Since the nachos were gross and we were hungry, we ordered the chicken strip basket with fries. They tasted like they were from the frozen food section of a grocery store. I know its a "dive bar" and I shouldn't except a delicacy...but it would be nice if the food was edible! Moral of the story, DRINKS ONLY at this place!

i'm a Lawyer who works all around the world and i came one time to that little tiny place, cool and somehow sort of fancy wanna be..lol
There was a Caucasian tall (6'2 average) athletic guy, blond hair looking like Barbie's ken...LMFAO, (Excuse my English)..but if i was about to talk the right way anyone who likes to go to this place would not understand, well..
Ken "lol, Blond bouncer at the door", refused entrance reciting the so called law by him...LOL!!!
"You can't get in, you need a MN state I.D"..LOL, such a funny young man!!!!!...What if I am from WI now, You need a MN state I.D...(even more funny)...Seriously, Boy you gonna get in trouble
Because this Place hire and position IGNORANT who never seen further than the Stop sign of their block, at the entrance they will get it too...(how funny!!!...lol)
Have you guys ever Heard About Equal Opportunity rights?...Well I'm Inviting EVERYONE WHO GOT OFFENDED BY THAT PLACE TO GOOGLE THEIR RIGHTS FROM LEGAL SOURCES.
THIS PLACE IS NOT LEGIT AT ALL AND ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WORKS IN AND OFFENDED CUSTOMERS SHOULD ALL BE FIRE AND GET SOME LONG VACATION IN BECAUSE IT IS REALLY DISRESPECTFUL TO STEREOTYPE CUSTOMER AT THE DOOR DUE TO " MR. BLONDIE MODEL WANNA BE" IGNORANCE ABOUT THE WORLD HUMAN RIGHTS.
IF YOU REALLY KNEW ABOUT THE LAW IN MN YOU WILL NOT BE BOUNCING AT THE DOOR OF A BAR FOR YOUNGER CROWD.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY!!!!!!! it is really Funny to Hear a NO BRAINED TALKING ABOUT LAW AND MN STATE ID...LOL
THIS PLACE IS DEFINITELY NOT READY TO ACCEPT GOOD BUSINESS YET

this place is usually an ok place. my friends and i go every weekend and this particular weekend the security guard wanted to see my shoes after looking at my ID, which was kinda odd because i wore them several times before....when i asked him why he wanted to see them he said because i dont look 5'6 in heels...that was ridiculously stupid, but i still had a good time anyway =)

For those of you who like youngins dancing around and somewhat expensive drinks then this is your place. If your looking for classy, don't go.

my fiance wanted to go dancing with me and a few of her friends for her birthday so we thought this would be a decent place to go. We soon found out just how wrong we were, the other male patrons wouldn't leave the girls alone, even after being asked multiple times. Service at the bar was terrible, it took 5-10 mins to get a drink and when we finally did it was made wrong. We will never go there again. it is in my opinion the sluttiest bar in MN
