I've loved Lyle's since I was in college 30 years ago. Great local place to have drinks with friends. The food is fine, nothing amazing. The appetizers, burgers and sandwiches give you a good base if you're there for the night to drink and be...More

Minneapolis is better than this. Find somewhere else. Rude staff, boring environment, nasty place. Go elsewhere!

Best dive bar in town I'd say. Don't be put off by the lino booth's or the local drunks. Two for 1 beer before 6 and a tasty cheeseburger with decent onion rings does it for me. Colorful waitstaff.

It's just another "sports" bar whose patrons tend to be crazy about forever-losing Minnesota Vikings. This place is completely devoid of any Windows and entirely "decorated" with neon adverts of beer brands and it's adorned with numerous TV screens.

One of the best Mpls dive bars. Great burgers and onion rings cheap. It is what it is. Here in Australia they try to recreate the dive bar experience without the soul.
