Went to a niece's graduation of Univ. of Minn. and we stopped in here for happy hour. The beer lover's loved the beer. We also tried the fish tacos and fries and both were okay. Our server was really nice and helpful. One strange thing-when we ordered champagne and wine it came in small beer glasses! We were able to... More

Was in the Twin Cities for my Father's Funeral Service. Arrived at the Marriott across the street and decided to grab a bite of lunch. Walked in and noticed that the place was obviously a "bar", but continued on and around the corner found a "restaurant, that was spacious. The staff was al very friendly and accommodating. In a short... More

They had great beer sections (wide variety) and the food was great! We had fish and chips as well as the white cheddar burger! For an app we selected the cheese curds. Great location and atmosphere to hang out with friends! Be prepared to pay for parking, but that's typical in Minneapolis. They also take reservations!!

I would give Republic five stars for beer but only three stars for food. The food was very bland and basic. But, the beer! Wow, great beer selections for every palate! Nice mix of local and national breweries.

We make the Republic a must for every visit to Minneapolis. They have a huge craft beer selection, informative staff that are fun and friendly also, food is good. Patio is huge and comfy in summer months. My favorite beverage is Zombie Killer by B. Nektar Meadery. FABULOUS!!!!

I just finish dinner and the food was great. Started with some cheese curds that were really good. For dinner I had a burger and it was the best burger I have had in years. Ok the bar has a kind of beatnik feel and yes you get wine in a mini beer glass (which I like) but the bar... More

We were in the area with family for the weekend and stopped into Republic for dinner. I had expected a larger menu due to the size of the establishment, however what was offered was very good. They are more focused on the extensive microbrew selection, which was good. Around the table there was not a bad meal, actually all plates... More

I was staying next door while doing some work at the university. Great pub food complimented by one of their great brews. The bartender was brand new, but a really nice guy. Easy access to the light rail from here as well.

I like the republic and go there for happy hour. Last time I went and was surprised that H/H burger is same size as regular, which was overcooked (ordered rare, barely pink, so was my partner).

I had lunch with colleagues here, because it was close to a business meeting. We were not impressed. The food was of a mediocre quality. We were four guests. We order four different items, and none of us was happy with the quality of the food. I guess we sacrificed quality for convenience. Next time we go to Quiznos :)

Thank Qamar14
