“Great service but pass on the BBQ brisket”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Went to the Loon Cafe before attending the Wolves game last night. The place wasn't packed like normal. Service was super fast, but the food was a disappointment. I normally have the BBQ ribs, but settled for the brisket sandwich as I was still full from lunch. I ask our waitness if the brisket was juicey & she claimed is would be. First off the brisket was way too tuff, over cooked and much to much sauce. Very hard to take a bite out of my sandwich as full slicves of meat. From looking at the slices of meat, it looked more brisket, but rather like slices from a cheap cut of steak , if that. Think we will check out another restaurant before our next Wolves game.

“A great sports bar and grill for all sports fans!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Within blocks of both the baseball field and basketball stadium, and a short drive from the football stadium, this sports bar and grill is ideally located in downtown Minneapolis. But it's a restaurant for foodies, too. When my husband and I had dinner there, I had Kathryn's Chicken Salad, and the presentation of the dish was truly a work of art, and simply delectable. The service is great and the ambience is fabulous for the sports fan; there's a number of TV screens with, at any given time, at least two different games on. It's perfect for lunch, dinner, or a late-night snack!

“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We were strolling through downtown on a Sunday, trying to find somewhere to watch football and stumbled upon Loon's. The service was great, the Chili was fantastic and we were able to watch the game. Perfect chilli day restaurant/bar.

We were strolling around and decided to stop and have a beverage, the service was great and the drinks were good and cold! Sitting out watching the people go by was fun! Cheers Kim
