Stopped here early on a Friday afternoon with my wife for some beers. Upon arrival, we seated ourselves at a window table overlooking Lake and Hennepin. Perfect spot to people watch from above. Our table was wobbly which sucked. Real fun trying not to touch the table to avoid spilling beer the whole time. An issue that should easily be corrected, but not a huge deal.
Large bar with ample table and booth seating throughout, lots of windows. The tap selection is wonderful with some high quality beers to be had. Oak aged Yeti, Breakfast Stout, Dragon's Milk, Hopslam and many local beers representing most Minneapolis breweries. Something for everyone and their flights of three 8 oz. pours for $10 is an amazing deal. This included every beer on the menu. Did not try the food.
The biggest problem we had was the service. The bar was nearly empty when we got there and I bet we still waited a solid 5-10 minutes for someone to bring us a beer menu. We each got a flight of three and as we worked our way through them, we were only checked on once or twice. It got to the point where my beer was completely gone, my wife nearly had hers gone and both of our waters were completely empty. We were not checked on to see if we wanted anything more or our check for at least a half an hour. Mind you it was now busier, but there was also more staff on hand now too. Completely unacceptable.
Other than the service, everything was wonderful. I will go back, but another lapse in service would be a deal breaker for me.
