Visited for lunch, midweek. The space is pretty small, but comfortably so. There are is a decent size bar to the right, bar tables in the center, and maybe 8 dining table to the right. Behind all of this is the bowling alley, which is pretty cool. During lunch, no one was bowling, and the place was mostly filled with socialists working on their latest movie treatments. They had wifi, and an electical outlet; two things I was really in the need of. The service was very friendly. I had an egg scramble and a Surly Hell, both were fresh and in good condition. They have rotating Surly and Bells seasonal, plus a solid draft and bottle list. Not huge, but well chosen. The food menu was really quite pricey, considering. In general, a fun place which I am sure is even more so when it is in Bar mode in the evening. The fact its aroun the corner from Herkimer and Moto-I make it an easy choice to visit.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Bowling Alley/theater/bar all wrapped into one. Small draft selection but good offerings overall. Food is good but can be a little pricey. Decent breakfast as well. Fun place to go if you are in town and want o bowl and drink craft beer.

Only eight lanes for bowling but it has a theatre. The beer selection was okay but everything was overpriced, even their local selection. The first two beers I ordered they were out of. If they have an open lane for bowling you should come and check it out, but if you’re just looking for a place to drink there are other options in the area.

This was a nice place with some decent beer on tap and decent prices as well. I didnít end up trying the food, but it smelled good. At 10 pm on a saturday we were easily able to get a table. Our server was friendly and answered all of our questions. Iíd go back here if I ever come up to Minneapolis again.

Where else in Minnesota can you drink Cru Brouscella 1900 Grand Cru and bowl? Always plenty of Bellís on tap. Sometimes lacking in the locals department, but when you can get a bottle of Rose de Grambinus does it matter? Typical Uptown hipster crowd, but thankfully very few assholes. Cantillon + bowling = cool hangout.

Visited on a Friday evening. Very cool place packed with lots of 20, 30, and 40 somethings. Very hip retro vibe going on. They had a dozen plus tap beers which are pretty good, I had a pint of Surly Furious. There were a half dozen or so bowling lanes, but the waiting list can be long when the place is crowded. Iíve been told that the food is all organic and pretty good, but we didnít eat. Iíll have to go back next time Iím in Minne.

Visited on a Saturday night. Loved the atmosphere with the bowling alley in back. Plenty of good beer on tap. Great place to hang out and drink with friends.

I liked the vibe here, except for a strange feeling that reminded me of a Wolf Parade concert I once attended wearing no Chuck Taylors or non-prescription glasses and donning no hip handbag. Like the angsty crowd was looking at me thinking, "donít ruin our scene, asshole." But, they had many fun brews on tap and in bottles. It would be a good place to go when you end up with more people than you expected or wanted.

Bells Batch 7000 says a lot right? Neat little place that has good food and alwys has great brews on tap. Super funky hangout but I like this place alot. Can be really crowded at times but still no smoking and great beer.

Visited in early October 2006. Pretty damn cool place, looks like it hasnít been remodeled since the 40s, comfy bar/restaurant are with aged fixtures and a really nice tap selection. I didnít try the food but my friend who visits often says good things, and no one was bowling when we were there, but atmosphere-wise this place is killer. Good service, just a nice comfy place like the Twin Cities seem to be blessed with in abundance.
