Greeted at the door by a server which was nice. So many times you walk into a new place and aren't sure whether to seat yourself or? She sat me in a booth by the bar and I enjoyed watching the action around the place. Took me back to many years earlier when I was a bar patron. Was coming back from the doctor and wanted to sit and eat some lunch and thought I would try it. My server came over with a huge smile and got me a pop, gave me a menu and returned shortly thereafter. I loved hearing the bartender sing along out loud to the old school music and the banter back and forth between daytime bar patrons. Ordered simple, a burger and a side salad. The salad had home made dressing which was excellent. Huge chunks of blue cheese inside the creamy dressing. The burger was black angus, mouthwatering and happy to get it Med which many places won't do these days. She refilled my pop without asking which to me was a big plus--didnt have to wait, didn't have to hunt her down, she just appeared as it was nearly empty and filled it. She checked back on my food and was very friendly and professional. I will return. I am old school, remember when this place was called Connelly's. We used to go there after work at night when I worked at the Criterion many moons ago. By the way, Tripadvisor doesn't know the Twin Cities because Gabes is no where near West St. Paul--it is in St. Paul near Como Park.
