I was at the restaurant bar in the back for a company event and enjoyed the place, had some beers and great finger food (baby back ribs, brisket sandwiches, etc.). I recommend the joint.

Sounds like you were in the beer garden, that is one of the best spots downtown to have a work function. Thanks for the nice review, see you soon. Cheers, Kevin Fraley

My visit to the B&B was for a corporate function - open bar and lots of food. Service was efficient and attentive, and the food very good. Fun place for a casual night out.

Just go to this place and stop thinking about it. Order the smoked beef long ribs. Eat whatever they you want actually. Get sample bourbon flights to go with your meal, if you like bourbon. The service is impeccable and serve staff is very engaging...More

Had a quick lunch, cold beers and was mighty fine. Hated to leave. Food was great, unique and fun, yet nothing crazy. Fun staff.

The oysters are to-die-for and so are they sausages. Great beers. It's tough to try anything else! Servers are attentive and always take care of us.

My husband and I were downtown MN to celebrate a special anniversary. While the food was good, we felt it was over priced and the ambiance was not great. We were squeezed between 2 other couples and could hear them better than each other. :-(....More

No official dress code, however if you're going for dinner I wouldn't dress down too much, you'll feel out of place. It's a downtown, more "fancier" restaurant, so people naturally get a bit more dressed up.
