We were in town for a family wedding. They were able to seat our group of 12 and get us served on a busy Saturday. Service and food was great. My wife had the loaded baked potatoe soup and it was very good.

Food was typical for a college bar environment. Service wasn't great, maybe they were short-staffed, I don't know but it was a Saturday night and service was SLOW.

Food and service was very good but the place is a little lacking in atmosphere. It's obviously old and the decor reflects that.

Bub's Brewing Company is located in Downtown Winona and is a good burger and fries place. Good appetizers, free popcorn to snack on while you wait, and very good burgers. I've had the C.B. Burger in the past, which is a Barbecue Bacon Cheese Burger. This time, I had the All-American Burger: 1/3 pound beef, bacon, ham, fried onions and... More

Huge menu and a good choice of beers. It's part college bar and part family restaurant. My wife had a burger and I had a chicken sandwich. Pretty ordinary choices, but we were both amazed at how incredibly good the food was. Service was top notch and fast. I've paid 10x as much for a meal and been a lot... More

We went here before a football game, and it was great! Amazing burgers and delicious beer! Could have easily spent the whole afternoon here if we didn't have a game to go to. Our waitress was great - friendly and super fast! Check it out if you're in Winona!

My family enjoys going to Bubs. They have enough of a variety to keep us all happy. My husband loves the steak special. We also enjoy that they use Bloedows bread. Sometimes the service is not so great, but the popcorn and televisions keep us entertained.

This was our second time in 2 years coming to Bub's. It is basically a bar with decent bar food. I would recommend going there if you are hungry. The food is well prepared and the portions are generous.

This is just an average-type American bar and grill. I don't like going here very much because the floor, tables, and seats always seem dirty and sticky. The food is not amazing.

I was told they had the best burger in 4 states so I had to give it a try. The burgers were ok, and nothing more. Tables were sticky and the chairs were hard. It is an ok place with a reputation that exceeds the reality of the experience. Would I go there again? Probably not.
