    I ordered the cheese bites here as a last resort seeing that I HAD to order fried foods according to kitchen. The cheese bites were literally the WORST thing I have ever ordered from any restaurant.

    Forgot to mention ... The bar is cash only! So go to your bank cash machine before you come in.

    A little piece of small town South Dakota in Uptown Minneapolis. It's like they took the bar patrons, the building and drink prices back from where I grew up and plopped it in Uptown. It's awesome!

    Dwayne is the best bartender!!! Also, have your wedding reception in the hall! Super affordable and you pretty much get free reign.

    Front Door Dan is awesome.. Steve & Greg are my absolute favorite bartenders... Terribly awesome karaoke-with no judgements-and cheap pitchers during happy hour!

    If you want to do karaoke get there early and put your name in right away!!! Takes hours to finally get to you because it's so popular.

    Fernando for trivia is legitimately one of the BEST around. Fat Slash for karaoke, not so much. Also, the bartender on trivia nights is less than accommodating, but Fernando is totally worth the trip!

    Every couple of months they host an awesome Record Show on a weekend afternoon. If you like vinyl, you need to check it out.
