The food is good, although the small fries can be a bit soggy, the staff is usually courteous and prompt but the food is WAAAY overpriced. $15 for a burger and fries to go is ridiculous.

Came for a late dinner after the hockey game. Decent food, we had mac & cheese & the chicken sandwich. Service was good & they were open late.

Very busy before the Wild game. Our waiter was not excessively attentive, but he had tables all over the restaurant. This place has the best fries!! Very thin and salty :) the burgers also have an exceptional amount of options like cheese curds on top! Definitely worth a visit!

Lunch on a Saturday, not crowded at all. Received food about 45 minutes after ordering. Fries might have been good if they had not been so cold. Burgers were barely warm. Had to remind server of drink orders and find our own silverware. Although it took a long time to get an "adult" ice cream shake..it was delicious. Server was... More

Great food but service was very slow today for lunch. It too almost 45 min for the 7.99 American burger special.

Extremely creative burger menu (peanut butter, alligator, Juicy Klucy) and other cool choices like a grilled chicken with sliced strawberries and blackberries. Tiny, shoestring fries.

Our server was very nice and helpful. Not pushed to make decisions, at all. Food was delicious! Burgers, fries, sliders and pretzel bites. Large selection of beers, both national and local breweries. Wood recommend this place to anyone visiting St. Paul.

This was a lovely spot found by accident while searching to have lunch. I can't speak for the meat burgers but the veggie burger was spectacular. What I really liked was all the choices you could do with the burger like choosing your own bread, cheese, and accompaniments. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere lovely, and the prices are reasonable.... More

We were tired after our journey from the UK and just wanted a something to eat to keep us going. We shared a burger and fries with a cool beer and thoroughly enjoyed it! I'm no burger expert, but this was as good as I have ever had - cooked to perfection. Service was great not pushy just natural in... More
