You absolutely have to try the Surly Coffee Bender with a shot of espresso. It's to die for. The food here is top notch and the staff is very friendly and top of their game. We come here every month and it's definitely our favorite brunch location.

Been there several times and for the most part the food has been good,, good beer and good cocktails,,however,when you ask for water, you get a glass that's full of warm no ice water, tastes a bit stale

Payne Ave on the East Side of St Paul is improving lately and you should stop by. Ward 6 is my favorite Happy Hour place. They have a great beer/wine list, with lots of good local beers. The food is ALL good, have tried almost everything and it's all delicious

Martini with elderflower and prosecco was delicious. Nice Zinfandel wine that was quite reasonably priced. Great menu variety. Started with beet salad, and it was delicious. Reuben was also fantastic. Chickpea stew spices were a bit overwhelming. Sat at the bar, and service was great. Would definitely recommend! Off the beaten path.

Had a great date night here. A small restaurant, but we went on a Wednesday evening and were seated immediately. Very tasty food, the poutine looked standard but was one of the best that I've had. Bits of sausage, cheese curds, worth it. I had the duck, which was the special of the night, very good. Fish and chips were... More

First of all we were greeted by a young man Shane who was so warm and inviting. He told us we could choose our seating. Our waitress was Lori. She was sooo knowledgeable about her beers and food menu, in which my husband tried a few beers that is, he enjoyed them thoroughly... I had the Quiche which was excellent,... More

Super friendly service. It is obvious that the owners take great pride in this place. We chatted with Bob quite a bit. He paid special attention to every single guest. A plus for my husband: they serve Hamms! I had a Reuben. Very good, but i prefer thin sliced meat. My husband enjoyed his fish and chips. But the fries... More

Came to Ward Six after doing the ghost tour of St. Paul with the Wabasha Caves. The place was packed, but a table for two opened up within a few minuets. I loved everything about this place, great ambience, super great wait staff, superb service, and I believe the owner greeted us at the door and was super nice with... More

Honestly we've liked everything we've tried here when we visit. However Reubens are my favorite and theirs is amazing! It's thick and what I like is that by the time you finish one half, the other half is not soggy (it is at most restaurants). The flavor is yummy. Also the desserts...be sure to leave room! I enjoy the ambience.

Excellent food and drink in a friendly atmosphere. We have 20 taps of Minnesota craft beer, classic and new cocktails, a surprising wine list, made from scratch food with high quality (mostly local) ingredients.
