    World Cup happens every 4 years, it's a huge event. I was expecting to watch the game with average food and beers. But seriously, no audio on TVs? 80% of customers here are watching the game! No cool!

    New ownership for over a year now. Put a lot of money into it to fix the previous issues. i.e smell New chef, new menu, all very good. Happy Hour specials from 3-6 are worth the trip. Staff is Great!

    Food is great and servers are extremely friendly and if you come enough they actually know what you eat and drink. It's truly the place where everyone knows your name.

    The burgers are amazing. I'm seriously missing the captain crunch chicken but the food is good all around. The bartenders are great. The servers (Nikki and Mitch in particular) are great. Love PR's :)

    This bar smells like lotus petals on a spring morning. But, seriously those days are far in the past and the bartenders and staff make me feel at home. One of my favorite bars around.

    Really? A sports bar in Minneapolis suburbs when the Gopher B-ball team is ranked #8, hockey is ranked #1 and they DON'T HAVE THE BIG 10 NETWORK???

    Todd Huttner · January 10, 2013
  • Rob M.

    I agree about the barnyard smell but recently went there on Aug 22 and it seems like they've done something about it. Smelled fine.

    good food, but slow & forgetful service. I think our server was new, but it really was a poor experience.

    Mallory Bergland · July 19, 2012

    Monday at 10 is trivia. If you're not up for trivia and a really loud atmosphere, choose another venue. Otherwise, great service and food.

    The Whimpy Burger for $1 on Wed was great. But it was weird that all the tap beer served to our crowd of 30 was warm.

    If you want to redeem the specials, make sure to talk to the waitress/bartenders before checking in!!

    Bar has smelled like sewage water every night for at least the last year I've been coming.

    Service leaves a lot to be desired.
