“Poor food; not very clean”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Sat at the bar. Bartender kept putting a dirty, smelly rag in front of us even though I moved it twice. Food tasted warmed over. Just not a great experience. Would not recommend particularly because there are a lot of other great choices nearby, including Pizza Nea and Whiteys.

“Always a favorite for food and drinks”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Location is great with easy walking around. Lots of parking available too.

The atmosphere is always busy but not so much so conversations are hard to have.

The tap selection offers many staples but also has many unique offerings as well.

The food all has a personal twist on it making everything different from what or used to. It's always very good even if it gets a little wild someone's.

The tots are amazing to say the least. They go great with beer too!

One of my favorite Minneapolis stops

“Big Bites, Bustling Bar”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Good bar fare with some sophisticated tater tot options - had to read my own sentence twice there. Sandwiches are piled high, kids menu is ample, cupcakes are complimentary for little people. Servers can be overworked, or seem so, at times and this place is usually packed. Good reserved after bank hours parking across the street. A good stand-by.

“Nice place with young people”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is a place you want to go to see people, young people, a bar with a lot of TV screens and in a very central area of Minneapolis. It is located in a walking distance to the old downtown, a place I like to go for a walk and to see people. Food is mainly sandwiches, you find a different variety out of the conventional you find in other places. Beer prices are reasonable. In general, it is a good place to be among young people and in a "party" atmosphere.

“Burgers !”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We were here on a weeknight and it was pretty busy. Large selection of both tap and bottled beers. Everyone in our table had a specialty burger. All were good. They have quite a selection of fries with various spices and if you are so inclinded, tater tots. Place is pretty noisy and crowded but that seemed to be part of the vibe of the restaurant.
