Although I'm solo on this trip, it looked like people were having a fun time. There aren't a bunch of distracting TVs and the music isn't too loud. The service is good--casual and cooperative. But the portions seem inconsistent. I ordered a bowl of chili; it was quite small and I was still hungry by the end of it. I... More

This is pretty much a dive bar atmosphere with great food. We go monthly for a meeting for a local Sci-fi convention.we love the tater tots and free wifi. The food is great and we always get great service

We stopped here for lunch when biking around downtown Mpls. None of us had been here before, including our local relatives. We were pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu of bar food including deep fried Mac & Cheese, coney dogs, and otherState Fair type items - all we're quite good. The service was very friendly and efficient.

friend of mine, Matt Mauch, was having a reading of his new poetry book If You're Lucky Is a Theory of Mine at The Loft Literary Center, so a dinner stop at Grumpy's for a few worry-free pints to relax into before a night of poetry. I've only been to Grumpy's a few times because I find it hard getting... More

I've never actually been to the one on Washington, but I love the one in Roseville. If you're looking to stay out of downtown and not worry about parking, this is a great place to go for happy hour, either from 3-6 or 9-11. They have a gorgeous, shaded patio that always has plenty of open seating and I personally... More
