“Awesome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

A friend told us they have the same burgers as The Nook- and they were right! Got the Juicy Nookie- loved that it came w/ a slip of paper warning about the molten cheese. Recommend the waffle fries! And a decent craft selection, though the waitress wasn't up on what the offerings were.

“Slightly Above Average Burgers. Loud Bar Atmosphere.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Gave it a try because we were in the neighborhood and drove by at dinner time. Very busy Saturday night with a good band starting up in a couple of hours. We still got a table (outside) immediately. Unfortunately, the outdoor "patio" is not a patio and instead shares a city sidewalk with pedestrians right next to a bus stop. They would be better off using the small parking lot in the rear that only has a dozen spots to create a better patio area. Our waitress was very busy but tended to us well. We tried the "Irish Fries" for an appetizer (corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing on waffle fries). Never seen this before and must bee one of the better "bar style" appetizers we have had. The burger selection was endless and the burgers were good, but only slightly above average. The food took some time, but it was understandable as there was not an empty table in the place. The bathrooms could use some cleaning and updating.

“Awesome food and service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

Great atmosphere and plenty of burgers to choose from. I had the Juicy Nookie and it was definitely the best I've had in the cities. Our waitress was very friendly and went above and beyond to make us have a pleasant experience. Highly recommend for good food and drinks!

“Average Food - Slow Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

My co workers and I went to Shamrock's because we heard they had the bet burgers in the Twin Cities. They burgers were fine but nothing special and hopefully not even close to the best in the Twin Cities.

Service as spotty. Sometimes fast sometimes slow. The kitchen seemed to be behind so not sure how much was the wait staff and how much was the kitchen. Beer selection seemed small for a pub.

“Burgers, Wings, Cheese Curds. Oh my!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I always struggle with what to order as it all is so tasty. I love their burgers, but their dry rub wings are also great. If I am feeling skinny I order the cheese curds. They are better than at the State Fair!
