Right around the corner from the Marriott City Center and it was perfect! Best Bloody Mary's ever- "The Weekender" - a must have! It's a meal with your Bloody Mary and the wedge salad was amazing! Others had the fish special and loved it- (Sea Bass I believe). Can't go wrong with this place!

We tried desperately to get into this restaurant while not it wasn't busy. The hostess was nowhere to be found. There were two Somali refugee looking kids hanging out with the griller in the front that maybe were supposed to. E filling in for the hostess. We finally just walked into the restaurant and flagged down one of the waitresses... More

We stopped here before and after dinner for some drinks. Our bartender was very nice and funny! It's really sad that a great place has to close at 11pm because the of riffraff downtown .

Went here for a beverage and light dinner prior to attending an NFL game. Lively, loud atmosphere which was fine with us. Food and beverages were good, generous servings. service was okay, seemed to be disorganized.

We met my daughter and family before they were going to the theater. We were a little pressed for time,but at 5:30 we got a table for six. Four adults two picky eater kids. Service was prompt, never pushy on a busy night before a Pro basketball game. They have no kids menu, but they would make grilled cheese sandwiches... More

Best Bloody Mary ever - stopped in here before a Vikings football game. Food wasn't bad either - but the Bloody Mary is practically a meal in itself!!!

I had a long layover at the Minneapolis airport. There are lots of choices and I made the WRONG choice. I overheard other diners indicate that their dinner was not hot so I was a bit Leary. Went with the roast beef sandwich. Another wrong choice. The beef was cold the gravy coagulated... the fries were cold. The only nice... More

Unique venue that included friendly service. Food was good, but no wow factor. Would say it is more of a diner feel with comfort food, with the odd step up.

If you are looking for good food and drink but don't want to spend big bucks then this is a great downtown restaurant. The chili was very good. They offer a very large bar menu. Staff was friendly and attentive. Try their delicious onion rings!

Description
You’d swear this place has been around since the '40s. A bar commands the narrow room flanked by booths and tables. Servers in coats, bartenders in jackets yet with a casual air that screams welcome. American classics; juicy hand-formed burgers. Lunchtime, a carver chef slices fresh roast beef and roast turkey for sandwiches. Small plates span America’s history; supper club shrimp cocktail up-to-the-minute items as tuna tataki, fresh guacamole prepared table side, fresh spring rolls stuffed with rice noodles, shrimp and holy basil. “Big Plates”; Fillet Oscar, homemade meat loaf, pork prime rib, house smoked ribs, all can include soup, salad, bread and a basket of plastic-wrapped crackers, just like in the old days. Ike's has a serious bar, strong drinks, vintage cocktails and ice cream drinks a good selection of beers and wines by the glass. Ike's is one of downtown's favorite; retro booths, antique wood bar, with a supper-club feel.
