4 of us went before a concert. There was a small waiting line to be seated in the dining room area. We were seated by the hostess in less than 10 minutes. Our waitress was very prompt in taking our drink order. We ordered loaded potato skins as an appetizer. The potatoes were very good, moist and hot full of... More

McGovern's is a great place to stop if you go out in St. Paul. It is located in a great spot, and has a lot of space inside to eat, drink and hang out. In summer it has even more room with the patio which is one of the coolest patios that you will find, but it can be tough... More

I work in downtown St. Paul and there is no better place to go after work for a cold beer and great meal! As someone who loves Irish pubs, I can say without a doubt this is the best Irish Stew i have ever had! The service is always great regardless of if they are busy or if they are... More

I have visited this restaurant a few times due to a Minnesota wild game. I have ordered food twice, the fish sliders and the potato skins on two separate occasions. Both times the food has been mediocre to bad. The fish sliders, what this restaurant is known for, were bland and commercial, and the potato skins were just fried potato... More

We typically stop here a couple times a year before Wild games. Always a fun atmosphere. Food is excellent and portion sizes are more than adequate. Just need to be aware that it is often crazy busy prior to games and both wait times for seating and food can be longer than you might like. Arrive early and it's not... More
