Went to dinner with my hubby on a Monday night. Place was empty! There were three couples (including us) on the patio, the patio was nice at one point. Now more than half the lights have burnt out bulbs, furniture is stained, and the bar patrons some out to smoke. Inside, the place smelled a bit bad, a mix of... More

Lovely patio out back. Burgers on Monday night are a great deal! Attentive waitstaff and friendly bar tenders. Service is quick and the food is great. Fries a bit salty though.

Our family reunion was enhanced by the friendly neighborhood atmosphere and welcoming staff at Plums. We had reserved the upper seating area which served our family grouping of 35. Mom at 89 and grandbabies under two were all met with smiles and understanding. PLUMS is our annual venue for get togethers from now on. We're looking forward to Gramma's August... More

Plumbs has been a neighborhood mainstay for as long as I can remember. Great food and the patio is a great hangout in the summer. The staff is friendly and attentive. They also have a fireplace on the patio for those chilly nights. A little history, Plums was rated the #1 pickup bar by Playboy in the late seventies. It's... More

Ever since I've moved to St. Paul I've been looking for a dive bar with decent food and reasonable drinks. This place may be it. I appreciate that it's not as busy as The Blue Door, Shamrocks, or the Nook. I only wish it was walking distance to my home in merriam park. The burgers are a fantastic value on... More

Stopped in one night and have now gone back several times. Great atmosphere with lovely wood work in the bar area. The outside doesn't do it justice. Service has always been friendly and quick. And the french fries are seasoned sour cream are lick crack. So good and you'll have way too much because their addicting.

We had a very large group that went in after a hockey game. I had called ahead and they were extremely accomodating for our group of 25! We were an hour early and they worked extremely hard to get the area they had reserved for us ready. We only waited for about 10 minutes! The waitstaff was VERY good and... More

Plums has great food at very reasonable service. When the weather allows the patio is one of the best in Saint Paul, a hidden gem! Plums is a great place to meet friends, to visit with family, or to just relax. Plums is truly a "neighborhood bar and grill"!

We stopped in by randomly choosing it from our GPS. We were pleased with what we discovered. We were there at 4:00 on Saturday and it wasn't too busy. Service was excellent and quick. The place was clean for a bar and grill and there was alot of room. I had a Juicy Lucy burger and my wife a chicken... More
