“Great Neighborhood Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

English style pub in the Lynnhurst neighborhood of Minneapolis. Very good beer selectionand food. The menu is fairly small, but has a good variety. If you prefer McDonald's style French fries, skip the "Chips" (they are large and on the soggy side, but have good potato taste) and have the fried green beans. My favorite go-to is the Dragon burger. Several of their dinner specials have been very satisfying. My kids like the mac and cheese (try the adult version too!).

The atmosphere of G&D is brighter than a typical pub, despite the dark wood paneling, due to the large wall of glass facing 50th St on the North. You'll find our family there at least a couple times a month.

Weekends fill up fast, so call ahead to put your name down. Thanks to Bitesquad.com you can also get home delivery from this restaurant when they're busy, typically getting delivery within 30 minutes despite longer estimates.

“Walked in and what a surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This was almost by accident. Standing in front of the malt shop. Ian said" I wonder what's down the street". We took a few steps and looked in the window then walked in. New and inviting we were warmly greeted by a young woman and shown to a booth. Sharp young people run the joint and it was excellent.

“Best restaurant in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Belly up to the bar and say hello to Mr. Miller! Try whatever he is serving as the special brew. Bahn mi is great.... So are all the curries. Upgrade to the fried green beans.

“English Pub Type Fare----YES PLEASE!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Call ahead as they seem to be busy, but what do you expect from a small good restaurant. If it wasn't busy would you want to eat there? Beef Short Ribs---excellent, meat is so tender and the potatoes and gravy are so good. Fish & Chips, as someone that has had this in England, this was so good. Light and flaky, not greasy at all, just need the mashed peas. Creme Brule for dessert----AMAZING! Will definitely be going back. Oh yeah, their menu of beers is pretty good also.

“Excellent food with LONG waits for a table”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is a small brew pub located in south Minneapolis that has seemed to really catch on.

Food-wise - they offer some great choices and twists on the British pub food.

Service-wise they are still working things out, particularly if you didn't plan ahead with a reservation (STRONGLY recommended). Because of its trendy nature you can be in for a very long wait. In our case about 20 minutes longer than the host promised which is the primary reason I cannot rate them higher.
