We really, really wanted to like Ward 66. It is just OK. The atmosphere is interesting and eclectic. The device and food, however, have room for improvement. The idea of supporting a neighborhood pub, off of Payne avenue was very appealing It is nearby to Swede Hollow Park and Bruce Vento Regional trail, making it a convenient stop when out... More

As youngsters, Payne Avenue was an area we were encouraged to avoid. "The Payne Reliever", a strip joint, didn't help this street's reputation. Well, Payne Avenue is on it's way back! And Ward 6 is leading the way. This little gem has some delicious and interesting offerings, including to die for French fries, crisply fried in beef fat (I didn't... More

I've been here for brunch and lunch, and I'd say their brunch far surpasses their lunch. For brunch we had the corned beef and cabbage with a Bloody Mary and the typical eggs with hash browns and sausage. They also have a nice variety of "cafe type" beverages such as espresso drinks and teas. I had a drink that was... More

Ward 6 is a gem on the east side. Absolutely wonderful food. I recommend the tempura battered cheese curds....way better than your average curd! This is a great place to go with a group or sail solo at the bar.

Had heard good reviews and finally made the trip to the East Side. Well worth it. The hostess and waitress were very pleasant and helpful with the menu. The food was spot on good. And as a bonus Monday night was trivia night. The owner provided some quirky themed trivia and couple of serious regular groups dominated but it was... More

We showed up without a reservation....party of five. The host was very accommodating and kept us up to date with how long the wait would be. He returned multiple times to update us. Mind you, this was not annoying, but rather entertaining. He made the wait fly by and showed that he was interested in taking care of us. He... More

Excellent food and drink in a friendly atmosphere. We have 20 taps of Minnesota craft beer, classic and new cocktails, a surprising wine list, made from scratch food with high quality (mostly local) ingredients.
