    The most popular thing they have is the fish fry. The burgers are a close second, but I wasn't impressed with the other sandwiches.

    Great Waters' lineup of cask-conditioned ales may be the most underrated gem of a brewing portfolio in the entire Twin Cities. There’s no reason to drink anywhere else before a Wild game. Read more

    Keep in mind, they are unwilling to split your tab because it's just "easier" to put it all on one tab. Easier for who?

    TERRIBLE Reuben- hardly any corned beef, TURKEY on it, hardly toasted bread, the corned beef that WAS on the sandwich was super dry. Go to McGovern's for a rockin Reuben!

    Food is not going to knock got socks off, but the onion rings are really good. Some of the best around I'd venture. Also of note it the buffalo chicken sandwich.

    Decent beers. Of the two I had, the House Ale was better than the Myna Bock. Overall just a little underwhelming. Patience in tasting the nuances is necessary. Drinkability though, is strong.

    A computer being down should not prevent you from pouring my beer for 15 minutes. We left after 15mins of waiting when there were few people there on a Sunday. Learn to delegate.

    Order a beer and a black bean quesadilla, sans chicken or beef. Limit yourself to cask beers, as they're the freshest and rotate frequently. Pints are $2.50 from 4-6:00.
