    The brown ale (Brown Trout) is solid. The rest is... meh. There is better beer downtown now at Tin Whiskers.

    Chuck is awesome! The beer is straight og, lots of inebriated per capita beers, bacon beer nuts! Boomshakalaka.

    The Tuna Wrap is delicious!

    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

    If you like casks, try the Early Season Bear. Very good beer!

    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?

    Parker Smith · August 20, 2014
  • Leo M.

    Order appetizer and entree when you order the beverage because the service is slooooooooooow

    The tap beer is the fucking warmest foamiest beer on tap I've ever had. Fucking terrible. Not a refreshing place for Summer. Food looks like shit too. They fucked our bill up too. Fuck this place.

    Thought the Blackwater stout was a little light on flavor. Watery...

    The cask conditioned Blackwatch Oatmeal Stout was voted the Twin Cities Metro Area's "Sexiest Beer", it's pretty sexy, and tasty! The wild rice burger pairs well with it also.

    Do not expect customer service. They haven't figured that out yet.

    The beer is the reason to go here.. the food is middle of the road. OK, not great.

    Best ribs I have had in a long time!

    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!

    Jana Meckler · December 3, 2011

    Great fish and chips, otherwise have the jambalaya

    Ryan Hoveland · November 12, 2011
  • Andrew B.

    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.
