Excellent food and drinks. Decent beer list. Both some classic and some interesting menu options. Patio available during the summer. Servers are always friendly and informative.

Not the best of locations......but, really yummy food. This is a very informal place; no reservations. The warm bread served with olive oil, garlic, sea salt & pepper......mmmmm....I could have eaten just that for my dinner. The sandwiches and the entrees were excellent too. They...More

Three of us went for brunch and really enjoyed it. We only waited about 15 minutes for a table and the service was great. Friendly staff, good food, pretty building.

Decided to give Ward 6 a second chance. They've still got some work to do in the basics of service to draw in business (welcome and acknowledge customers). Once the initial awkwardness passed though, they did a good job. The burgers and fries were good....More

A lot of the food is locally sourced. Never had a bad meal there. I recommend leaving room for their adult milkshakes.

The grass fed burger here is outstanding as is the chicken dinner. In fact, everything is. The salads are great, the appetizers are a meal unto themselves and the drinks... fantastic. My recommendation would be the Bloody Mary. Really really good. Fun atmosphere and really...More

My wife brought me here for Saturday morning brunch; the place was small but that was to be expected from what her friends told her. We’ll just go with “cozy”😉 We had about a 20 minute wait time which wasn’t too bad except for the...More

We attended the he fifth anniversary party for this establishment. A 5 course dinner was paired with selected craft beers for each course. It is as simply amazing and a total joy. The food was only surpassed by the spirit and competence of the staff....More

This place has a nice vibe: cozy, attractive, tasty food, a great selection of tap beers, a vintage old back bar. Parking is easy too.

Stopped into Ward 6 after reading positive reviews about the place. Ward 6 did not disappoint. Sat at the bar and had a great bartender that really made the experience even better. Great drinks, fun environment as well as great food. Will definitely be back.

Hi, we don't take reservations for any size, due to our small size. We only have 2 larger tables which are designed for 5-6, but can fit 7-8 if people are willing to be a bit tight. Otherwise you could split up into two... More

They can definitely handle a party of 8. They do not take reservations but I have been there at around 5:00 and had no problems getting a table. I think they start getting busy at 6:00 or 6:30.

Excellent food and drink in a friendly atmosphere. We have 20 taps of Minnesota craft beer, classic and new cocktails, a surprising wine list, made from scratch food with high quality (mostly local) ingredients.
