“Nostalgic Place for Beer Lovers”
Review of Pat's Tap

Pat's Tap
Ranked #213 of 1,862 Restaurants in Minneapolis
Price range: $10 - $18
Cuisines: American
Description: This south Minneapolis gastropub tribute to Bartmann Group owner Kim Bartmann’s mother, Pat, not only features four vintage 1952 Skee-Ball machines from upstate New York but also the largest canned beer list west of the Mississippi, 18 local beers on tap, a wine list with organic, sustainable and biodynamic choices, and the best craft cocktails in town. Using locally and sustainably farmed ingredients and seafood that follows the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch guidelines, the menu zooms around the world's offerings of comfort food, only to land firmly on the formidable Big Cheese burger. People come from all over for a serving of cheese curds and to see Pat put the “pal” in “palindrome.” Pat’s Tap is open for lunch, dinner, late-night and brunch on the weekends.

Visited on a Saturday night with a group of 6 adults. Had awesome beer on tap, including many locals and chase beers like Bells Hopslam. Played a little skee-ball, came up with some palindromes, and had some unique food.

Went for brunch a couple of weeks ago. The mark of a good restaurant is a good cup of coffee, imo. Theirs did not disappoint. The food was good too!

Our experience here was great from start to finish. The hostess was gracious and accommodating to our group. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was fun. The appetizer cheese curds and homemade cheese-itz are excellent. Affordable too!

Pat's Tap serves unusually delicious and creative food. Sandwiches are to die for. Be sure to ask for their homemade potato chips. Beer specials are delish, tasty and refreshing. Servers are super friendly and attentive. Enjoy the street side patio in summertime. After your meal, be sure to pop some quarters into the skeet-ball machines which hail from 1952! This place is simply superb.
