Terrible service, food and drinks aren’t good, and rude wait staff. Not the same as it was before the remodel.

The original Nye's was super fun anomaly of being a cheesy place in a nice neighborhood with strongly-poured cocktails with bad liquor. The environment set the stage for what to expect in food and cocktails (relish tray, anyone?) The new Nye's has a posh spot...More

Nyes is a great place to stop for a cocktail when a drink and conversation is all you need. No food is served, but there is an extensive cocktail menu. The new Nyes has retained its supper club look, with leather seating in the booths,...More

Old-school ambience (although I'm told it's a new location in the new building). We were just there for drinks - which were excellent and the service was friendly, professional, and helpful. Very nice experience and a good place to catch up with friends

Nyes recently opened again. It’s certainly not the old Nyes, but they have kept some of the fixtures and incorporated them in the new place. Great staff and solid drinks. The piano bar lives on. New restrooms are a bonus.

It's closing but the dueling piano bar will always be remembered, as will the unique cuisine. It was an interesting place.

If you're looking for a fun night in Minneapolis, this is your spot. You've never seen anything like it. Even if you're only a casual polka music fan, bring your dancing shoes.

There is still a piano bar, not sure what time it begins. We were there about 6:00 pm, I think dinner begins at 5:00 pm.
