“Just what the East Side needed! Sköl!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

My wife and I both grew up on the East Side of St. Paul, but good restaurants on Payne Avenue are few and far between. It was great to drive up to Ward 6 and see a crowd. It's a small place, so sometimes you have to wait a bit, but the food, the friendly waitstaff and the comfortable atmosphere make it worthwhile. I had the fish and sticks. The fish, deep fried in beef lard, was light, hot, and crispy, and the fries were among the best I've ever had. My wife's mini chicken salad sandwiches were also tasty. I don't drink, so I couldn't take advantage of the broad range of beer selections, and I'm not a fan of charcuterie, but those are among the many options available. The menu has enough variety to keep us coming back. Sköl, Ward 6!

“Eastside Pride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

I have lived on the East Side of St. Paul of my life and it is refreshing to finally say I have a restaurant bar that I can call home. Fantastic atomsphere, amazing MN brewed beer selections, adult malts, fish that is deep fried in beef lard, fries that are better than the famous McDonalds, and of course outstanding service. If the waitress, Monique, didn't know what the answer was, she asked. It was fantastic to go to a place that you felt comfortable in the setting with company. Two thumbs up! Highly recommend this local restaurant!

“A St Paul gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Lucky St Paul to have this restaurant. Great food. A little on the gourmet side which is a nice touch. Friendly service and owner. Can be a little loud and not a big place. Always busy too. Which is good for them. Bad for us as it can be hard to get a table at times. Worth the wait though.

Happy to find this cozy neighborhood restaurant with its interesting menu. Food was excellent and served quickly despite the full house. Went for lunch this week; plan to go back for dinner next week!
