okay, seating is impersonal, crowded, food pretty good. location average. Our experience did not compare to the better than average chef driven bistos. We should try it again to be fair.

We went to Broder's after my husband saw Guy Fieri review it on the Food TV Network.
We were not disappointed! OUr family of four had slices of pizza (we tried cheese, pep, Morel eith Garlic EVOO, and the prosciutto and argugula)...and all were delicious. We added four drinks and two very small bowls of side salad (one caprese salad and a pesto bowtie). While the slices of pizza were only $2 and $3.50 each, somehow our bill came to over $42! After checking the bill I realized that the caprese salad was something like $12.50/lb! Yikes So a tiny bowl was $6.50. If I had realized that I would have just ordered a second slice. They were delicious though). Drinks were $2 each. YOu order at the counter and then they bring it to you.

The decor is casual and comfy. They sell lots of fun food items in the front of the shop. If you want a glass of wine they sell it. The desserts in the pasty case looked amazing!

Be sure to drop by. It will be worht it!

I've been going here for years. Whatever you order will be delicious. I can't remember the exact name of the dish they've had for a long time but it's creamy and has lamb in it. Yum! The service is great and the suggestions by servers is right on. If you love the restaurant right across the street is their deli where you can buy great pasta and sauces to take home or give as gifts. Oh and the pizza is the best I've found in the Twin Cities if you like authentic Italian.

The food at Broders is wonderful. I only wish they had a larger dining area and a bigger parking lot.
