Had a quick lunch, cold beers and was mighty fine. Hated to leave. Food was great, unique and fun, yet nothing crazy. Fun staff.

The oysters are to-die-for and so are they sausages. Great beers. It's tough to try anything else! Servers are attentive and always take care of us.

Wife took me here for my birthday. Drinks, food, service, atmosphere, all excellent. Steak was cooked perfectly and had great flavor. Sides were equally awesome. My Old Fashioned was done right and went great with everything. Didn't get any sausages but now have an excuse...More

My husband and I were downtown MN to celebrate a special anniversary. While the food was good, we felt it was over priced and the ambiance was not great. We were squeezed between 2 other couples and could hear them better than each other. :-(....More

No official dress code, however if you're going for dinner I wouldn't dress down too much, you'll feel out of place. It's a downtown, more "fancier" restaurant, so people naturally get a bit more dressed up.
