    One of the best beer selections in minneapolis featuring local breweries. Go during happy hour for $3 fries or $6 burger (4-6p and 10p-12a). Or check out their bloody mary bar on sunday.

    Try one of the ridiculously affordable 32 tap beers, watch the sun set over the downtown skyline and try some killer food. My fave: Cheddar, bacon, caramelized onion turkey burger + housemade ketchup.

    Love the grass-fed burger served without fries ... A nice side of mixed greens instead. We had great service from Elijah on New Years Eve 2012 (see photo)

    A splendidly sophisticated spin on tired mozzarella sticks, ricotta fritters are breaded & fried.Truffle honey gets drizzled over them before serving which compliments the salty layer. Read more

    Awesome brunch! Get the poutine and Diablo hash. Incredible beer selection, along with flights!

    Every day from 4 to 6 p.m., many of the 50-plus, largely local beers are discounted to $3 and the kicked-up comfort grub also gets a serious shave.

    Generous amount of local beers on tap plus a great happy hour. Loved the BELT sandwich with egg and bacon from a MN farm.

    Ask about the daily $3 tap specials. Great beer at a great price. Why would anyone miss a fishbowl, honestly? Preston's was pretty gross; this is a big step up.

    I love this bar/restaurant. Always tons of good beer, friendly and attractive staff, and the food is also above average.

    Awesome happy hour. 4-6 all (domestic) beers are 3 bucks a pint. So 1-2 bucks off. And burgers for 5 bucks, pretty delicious deal!

    After years of going for not brunch, I finally tried brunch. Excellent food and $5 bloody Marys with a small build-it-yourself bar.

    We may have had an off night or server. The food was great, the beer was great, but our service was terrible. Server seemed irritated to serve us, and rarely came to check on us, or refill our drinks.

    If you like sharp cheddar and thick-cut bacon, you'll love the bacon cheddar burger. Sub a turkey patty to cut the guilt.
