We stopped here for dinner and had a great experience. Outstanding beer selection with local brands featured prominently. My husband had a sandwich and I had fish and chips. Portions were HUGE! And tasty. Great service from really nice, knowledgeable staff.

This place is a good old fashioned "stand by" for a place to grab lunch or dinner on the east side of downtown near US Bank Stadium. It's pub style food in my book but they deliver on good american style burgers and crosscut fries...More

We stopped here before the Metallica concert and had the wings and a couple of burgers. The food was served hot, tasted great, plus they had pitchers of beer reasonably priced.

This has become our spot for drinks and appetizers after work. If you arrive before 6 pm they have happy hour specials. We always order chicken nachos to share and a round of drinks!

We live close by and stop by for the happy hour specials. Smoked dry rub wings are awesome. Cheesecurds are really good too.
