Great spot with good burgers and sandwiches. The kids often request Red Cow. The root beer pulled pork is my daughter’s favorite, while my son loves the fish tacos. And the truffle fries as well as the homemade chips are always a hit with the...More

Two of us arrived about 6:30 on a Tuesday. There was a wait of 20 minutes, so we sat at the bar, where we ended up dining. The place was busy, but the servers attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. We began with a couple of beers....More

I took a client and had a great lunch. The food was terrific and the service was outstanding. We sat upstairs, which allowed for better conversation.

The service was very slow. Gave my friend and I the wrong info at the door regarding, happy hour and drink specials. We came to see a band play outside and ate dinner first. Food was tasty but nothing to be amazed about.More

Hello Kaopas - I see this review states Shakopee location. Red Cow is only in Minneapolis & St Paul. We also do not have any outdoor bands, etc. I believe the location you are reviewing is Muddy Cow, of which we have no affiliation. Please...More

Food and service was great. Family of 4 and every burger was good from the Cowboy Burger, Turkey Avocado Burger and the Manhattan. Definitely recommend this place.

We ordered the Cowboy Burger (which has root beer pulled pork on it as well) and it was good; especially loved the house sauce. Our sweet potato fries weren’t “hot” when they arrived but tasted wonderful. We split our meal - I have no concept...More

The service was absolutely amazing! Our server, Shay, was one of the most knowledgeable waitresses I’ve had in a long time while traveling. She was able to assist us in sampling local beers to find ones that fit our likings. Shay was able to make...More

I'd heard good, if not outstanding, things about the Red Cow. I went their recently with my wife, daughter, and a friend (on a very busy Sunday afternoon). We had the usual: burgers, sandwiches, appetizers (cheese curds, onion rings), salads, etc. Nothing was bad, nothing...More

Hi Staehlin! Thanks for taking the time to review us. I’m sorry to hear your experience was just kind of mediocre. There is a lot that goes into executing our food perfectly and my guess is that we dropped the ball. It also sounds like...More

Bar is noisy as is the restaurant. The food is good but not exceptional. This must be a neighborhood place as many of the patrons know each other.

From what I could tell, a party of 30 might be tough in this space. Especially if the volume of business is anything like the day that we visited. It couldn't hurt to give them a call.
