Stopped here for a quick lunch before heading to the Baby Expo. Our server was friendly & personable. We ordered the Cheese Curds for an appetizer & they were excellent! Our meals came out with average wait time. The Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich is pretty good as well; my only critique is that the food was a bit too greasy... More

I'm sorry but it's not busy in here and our table of 9 are getting our food at least 30 minutes between plates. Seriously. Why do you have a food menu.

I would like to apologize for the bad experience you had while visiting Brother's. I'm not trying to make an excuse but we are going through some staff changes, and menu changes. Unfortunately, that has had something to do with the experience of our guests. I appreciate the feedback so going forward we know what we need to work on... More

Hubby and I along with another couple stopped in to Brother's Bar and Grill on a Friday evening. All the tables and booths were full so we found four chairs at the bar. There was no bartender in sight for about a good 10 minutes. As we waited a booth opened up so we moved over. We sat there for... More

Fairly new restaurant in St. Cloud. Has a very open feeling and is quite large. Food is always good and service quick. Reubens are good here. Drinks are good as well. Outside they have seating nera a fire pit which is nice. The openness of the restaurant seems to make voices and noise echo so it can be extra hard... More

I have eating here a dozen times and the food is always great. The food is unique, fresh with nice portion sizes. This is definitely not just bar food. Service has always been great as well.

Made a decision to check out Brother's Bar & Grill. When you first come in it's your typical Sports Bar & Grill, which is great to me. We sat in the back near the opened garage door to get some of that fresh air. Chairs seemed a little low in height for the high-top tables but it wasn't too uncomfortable.... More

Perfect evening - we had a large group and everyone was so helpful. Food was great and the service was fantastic. It was a busy Saturday night and our wait time was not bad at all

Drinks are watered down very watered down. Waitress was non-communicative when two out of 8 meals were dropped and had to be remade. So 2 of us sat and watched everyone else eat. Then I didn't get any tarter sauce with my fish sandwich. Serving drinks were slow and table never cleared off. Just really lousy service. This was my... More

We stopped here looking for an old tavern that no longer exists. We decided to stay and have lunch. Ordered a French dip sandwich to split. It is served with a cup of French onion soup for dip instead of au jus. What a delightful surprise. Although the service was rather slow, the food was well worth the wait.
