Met friends here for drinks. Great, eclectic beer selection. Very good appetizers. Atmosphere was great. I loved the wood, barrel ceiling and stained glass. Looking forward to coming back again.

We've been going to Gluek's since before it burned down in the late 80's. We remember the white t-shirts with red symbols on them very fondly! The food here is great, but wish it were a bit more focused on being typical German food. The beer does not disappoint, including the selection, and there is usually a lively crowd on... More

The food was above average, especially for a bar. The service was excellent. Not as busy as I would have expected, but we had a late lunch, so we probably missed the busy time.

I have been here several times and I find this to be one of the few places where I always order the same thing. They have the best Mediterranean platter. If you love hummus, warm pita bread, and/or olives, this is the best I have had in Twin Cities.

This place is just super cool. Triune, Old World vibe makes you feel like this place has been there unchained for hundreds of years. Great beer selection, good food, and a nice staff.

We always stop here for a evening beverage. Live bands are a ton of fun, and the serviced is excellent.

My brother and I went here around midnight on a Friday eve. We had a mass of the Gluek Red Ale, which is by far one of the best beers around if you like reds. Had some tv's with sports on, and was a very casual atmosphere. Good times and great beer! The bartender was knowledgeable of the beers served,... More

We have frequented this downtown gem on several occasions. The food and the atmosphere is superb ! The wait staff is amazing ! We were approximately 12 of us attending a concert, we had an amazing time before and after our concert. If your looking for a great place to hang out, this is the place to be !

We came to glueks on our way back from bunkers to catch light rail to Mall of America. The band was Whats not or why not and they played an amazing range of covers with switching up the vocals. The crowd was all out on the dance floor at one point. If you order the large beer be careful as... More

We ate here for a post graduation celebration and it was fantastic. Every plate was clean by the end. I had the open face roast beef sandwich which was delish, my dad had fish and chips which he was pleased with, my mom had beef stroganoff and a bowl of the beer cheese soup (she wasn't fond of the soup)...
