Our group of friends love this place! The food is great - a step above normal 'bar' food. The drinks are also great and the service has been great for us. There is also a pool table and a shuffle board. This seems to be a little known place because it's not usually very busy until after a wedding late... More

$20 for a 9 oz glass of wine. And this was one of the cheapest on the list. Staff was not overly friendly.

The Severin Bar was a very positive experience. Considering its location downtown, it is reasonably priced. The bartender was a veritable font of local knowledge and lore making the time spent their both informative and entertaining. He was able to recommend several local sites and restaurants. Would recommend a stop here if you need a little respite and, perhaps, an... More

After a long day of meetings, etc., stopping in here for a craft beer or a drink isn't a bad idea.. Typical downtown hotel drink prices.

Stayed in the Omini hotel which this bar is a part of, good place to go if you are on your own and do not want to go out to a resturant. Beer selection was good and buffalo wings were great

I love Devour Downtown, but the menus can be hit or miss for us. The Severin Bar's menu was really good. We each had a local draft beer, shared the piggy bread (flat bread) appetizer, and then had the wild boar tacos and walleye sandwich. All were great, and for $35 for two of us, it was a great deal.... More

This bar is in the lobby of the Omni Hotel but also has street access. We were guest of the hotel but clearly local businesses drop in after work for drinks and food. The drink offerings are exceptional including the organic coctails. I recommend the organic margarita:).

The two nights I went the bar closed at midnight on the dot...granted, it wasn't Friday or Saturday, but both nights there were 20-30 people that had to be asked to leave, so I'm thinking they'd have continued to make money if they'd stayed open. That said - great bartenders, good pour - the drinks I had, at least -... More
