We went here on a Sat afternoon right when they opened. There was only one server on duty and she was obviously frustrated. The kitchen was only open for a few deep-fried options. We ordered "Old Fashioneds" that came in a glass the size of...More

Nice location for downtown attractions. The outside seating is great to enjoy a Minnesota summer day. Good food, drinks and atmosphere.

Went in for some late night appetizers, dessert and a few cocktails. Service was nice and prompt. Atmosphere is fun. The honey mustard is fantastic! The bailey's cheesecake is awesome!

We stop here occasionally after the Twins game for a beer. Nice selection and fairly priced for being next to Target Field and one block off Hennepin in Downtown Mpls. Don't know about the food but the beer and wait staff are terrific.

Stopped in for drinks with friends & ending up taking some soda bread home after eating the Irish potato soup! Food was really good, wait staff friendly and personable and will make sure to come back in the future!!

Good place across the street from First Avenue. Lots of established beer brands and flavors. The atmosphere is very Irish pub.

Food was okay, but the server was inattentive even though it was not a busy time. Burger was good. Water glasses weren't refilled until we could track her down and then it took awhile to get the check.

A friend and I have stopped in here a few times after Timberwolves games. It's a cozy layout with plenty of booth seating & good service if not too busy. The bartenders know their whiskey even if I disagree with their definition of "quality." We...More
