Came to Republic with reservations for 10. Took 1-1/2 hours to get our food, and before we got it the kitchen runners brought the wrong food to our table four separate times. One person at our table got the wrong food. Then 1/2 hour later we had to ask where the right food was, and the kitchen had forgotten to... More

Lots of microbrews. After that, not much more to say. One bartender was very nice and helpful, other was kinda rude. The wine was served in a short glass (not fine glass). The bar was dirty. Not their fault, but paying for parking on a Sunday is not conducive to tourists.

Very good menu with lots of options. It is definitely a pub atmosphere and somewhat noisy. However, the food was really good and I enjoyed it there. If you are a beer drinker, there are tons of options.

Went here for dinner with another couple. Had been here for a preshow bar crawl a couple years ago. Busy and lovely both times. What you will like: reasonable prices, pretty good beer selection, reasonable prices and tasty food with quick service. What you might not: it's an older not fancy pub near a college campus music was a couple... More

Great food for bar food. In fact great food period. Fish Tacos during happy hour on a Friday were quite tasty. Huge selection of beer on tap.

I expected someplace nicer based on the reviews. Kind of a dumpy college bar appearance wise. But the service was super friendly and efficient. The food was good. Amazing beer selection, although a few of our first choices weren't available. We liked the dry rub wings and the pulled pork rice bowls. The poutine was different but still good.

This is a great place to catch a bite before you jump on you plane and travel. The tacos are the best and the servers we very aware that we had a plane to catch and did not have a lot of spare time. All the tacos are very good. I has the fish with guacamole chips. Hit the spot... More

Great drinks! Bartender is friendly. Public transportation nearby. Place is warmth and cozy. A lot of beer choices; but my favorite is ace pineapple cider since im not a beer drinker.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Republic. We were there on a Wednesday evening, so it was pretty quiet. There are 3 different room areas, the bar with bar-top tables and two rooms with regular tables. We enjoyed a roasted beets & quinoa salad (arugula, pears, herb rolled chevre, white balsamic) and pork tacos (pork shoulder, guacamole, cabbage slaw)... More

The beer selection at Republic is probably top ten in the Twin Cities. They always have great beer on tap, with a wide variety as well. I really liked the happy hour burger and fries, great value.
