We specifically took a couple days off to go back to Gluek's, a bar we travel to at least once a year. Dan Ristrom and the Throwdown played live on this Tuesday night and they're a wonderfully talented group that made us never want to leave. Gluek's has a fabulous menu with some German flair, and some items I've not... More

They have a new menu. Not much changed, thankfully. They did however offer more of a "German" touch. Good service and great food at a reasonable price.

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
