    There's a well-curated row of craft beers on tap to try while you decide what to order from the American bistro-style menu. The foods are familiar, but with refinement, and none costs more than $20. Read more

    Grab a house-made beef dog, as fat as the fattest Wisconsin bratwurst, with just the right snap in the casing and the absolutely indescribable essence of good old American hot dog through and through. Read more

    Quaint little restaurant with excellent beer, wines, and cocktails. Food menu is very delish. The fish taco torta was one of the best fish sandwiches I've ever had! Make sure to thank the cooks.

    Had a starter of prosciutto and Mozz bread.. Delightful.. And pork belly.. Amazing texture and flavor! Ordered the slow-cooked pork rib served with red cabbage and mashed parsnips. I ate every bite!

    Off the "In Between" menu, I highly recommend the Fish Taco Torta. It can be a bit messy to eat, but oh man is it good. If you're there for dinner, try and sit at the kitchen bar.

    Came here for the first time last night and had such amazing food! The scallops were spectacular and the dry cured duck was probably my favorite! I also love the old fashioned lamps.

    One of our favorite restaurants in Minneapolis! Cozy atmosphere and delicious food. Do whatever you can to sit at the kitchen bar and strike up a conversation with the chefs!

    Perfect. Date. Restaurant. Prepare to share! Sit at the kitchen bar for the best view of the action and be sure to get the homemade ginger ale and whatever else the waitress recommends.

    Kids menus arrive like little paper-folded fortunes, & kids' meals are only $3 for little kids or $6 for big kids. The menu is full of safe options like tomato soup, shrimp, or grilled chicken.

    When there's a lengthy wait for a table - and it's only two - sitting at the counter is relatively faster and watching the meals being prepared and plated is educational and entertaining!

    Roast chicken thighs are described on the menu as "sorta jerk style," and the haystack shoestring fries with pepper aioli are the frites of your dreams. Read more

    One of Andrew Zimmern's favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities. His favorite dish is the shrimp with spring peas, spicy scampi sauce and grilled scallion.

    I have tried the entire menu and its all good. Ask the staff to help pair the wine as they know their stuff or will ask another staff member who does.
  • Cameron L.
    Jerk chicken, potted meat, brussels sprouts, whatever the ravioli type pasta dish is when you go in. Only downside is the coffee. Fantastic beer selection as well.

    Among three we tried the escargot, smoked potato bacon soup, duck, cheeseburger and cavatapi, the kale and gem salad. Everything was amazing, but the burger, the duck and the snails were the best.

    Order Brussels sprouts to share and an entree. If you're a beer lover, they have some of the best IPA selections, and more!

    Pot de Crème: small package, huge flavor of silky butterscotch balanced with the slight bitterness of crème fraîche. $5. Pair it with a Fulton Sweet Child of Vine or any other IPA.

    We really love Tilia for late-night dining and weekend brunch. The restaurant serves its "In-Between Menu" from 10 pm to close every day, so you can always get that fish taco torta. [Eater 18 Member]

    No lunch menu on weekends until 2pm. Brunch menu is more of a breakfast menu than a brunch menu. Not the best option when you are craving a burger or sandwich at 1pm.
