I was in the area eating dinner with my wife, so we decided to stroll on over to Busters after hearing about the good beer selection. Almost missed the joint, as it is not a very big establishment (yet). We arrived around 7:45 PM and it was packed. Eventually we found a seat at the bar. The service was a little slow, but there was only one main bartender working. The tap list was expansive and there was 88 bottle listings. I enjoyed a Rodenbach Grand Cru, setting me back $8 but it was worth it, especially since this is a beer they will not be distributing to the US very soon. Kudos to Busters for still having this on tap. The couple next to us enjoyed a bottle of Ommegang Three Philosophers I told them that was an excellent choice, albeit expensive. Finished with a Furious which was on special at $4 for a pint. All in all a pretty decent place. I overheard that they plan to expand the bar and grill soon, as they are buying a couple of the stores currently adjoined to the place. I’ll be interested in returning after the renovation.

Just got back from this place. It was really very impressive! Very cozy feel (read: somewhat crowded) with plenty of dark wood finishes. We lucked out on getting a booth way in the back so the crowd was a non-issue. Very well-chosen tap selection, even if it’s not advertised, you will definitely find something here you want to drink. I ordered a burger and a salad, and the burger was absolutely outstanding, maybe even one of the best I’ve ever had. Prices weren’t too bad -- approx. $6/pint for most selections. Pretty attentive and polite service, and even though there is no dedicated parking, it’s close enough to a residential area to make it a snap. I very highly recommend this place!

Busy place. Noisy and crowded on a Friday evening. Sports TVs everywhere, with the sound turned down. 32 taps, a lot of them Midwestern brews (Bell’s, Founder’s, Surly, Central Waters).Some ciders and imports. The beer list won’t impress beer geeks at all. Variety of sandwiches, pizzas, salads. We had mussels, which were just okay. Service was rushed -- in her hurry to serve and later take away plates, the unsmiling server twice spilled stuff on our table, nearly missing us and my rating notebook.... I don’t think I’ll go there again.

Busters has reopened and is every bit as great as it was before the fateful fire. Excellent if unspectacular tap list. Scratch cooking from the kitchen here offering up bar classics with a gourmet angle. All this in a friendly, no pretense environment. Great little place.

Definitely a place to stop by in Minneapolis. Nice atmosphere, good service, decent list (though not as extensive as Happy Gnome).

Lots of excellent taps, and a great flight sampler at a great price. Lots of good current stuff and decent pub grub to boot. I will visit here again.

Stopped on a Thursday night, sat at the bar, ordered a mildly overpriced sampler (14 bucks for 5 samples) but the samples were of anything including cask beer, bartender was awesome and attentive, tap list was pretty sweet and all in all a great time, as night progressed bar keep was willing to talk about beer and biking. this place is small but worth it. parking is on the street but easy to find.

Glad I came here! Was lucky to get a spot at the bar and the owner even brought me a stool! Little warm where I’m sitting right across from the griddle n friers, but the door is open and a nice breeze is wafting in. Air is good. Customers on my right are super friendly, ditto the bartender. The cooks are cranking the food out and to my eye, it looks faultless. And they sure are serving a lot of it! Got a tv on with the Olympics on behind the bar; small, good picture, and works for me. Lots of dark wood in the place including ceilings. Good selection of draft and bottled beers. Patio in front is busy but has some open tables. If I lived anywhere near here, I can see being a regular. Probably give it a better score too.

A mecca for South Minneapolitan beer lovers. The owner and bartenders are extremely beer knowledgable and they have an excellent, ever changing selection of beers. Also have cask beers on tap that change per week.

Nice bar in South Minneapolis. Had a good selection on tap, excluding the Stella for $6 :-) 100ish bottles as well. Only complaint is the individual bathroom for dudes. Some guy was camped out in there and we had a line 3 deep waiting to go.
Update - stopped in for bourbon barrel week and it was just amazing. Love this place!!

went here a couple times when I was in the city. The last time I went I was waiting for my wife to land in the MSP airport. They had KBS on tap!!! I was alittle upset that I couldn’t drink more because I had to pick up my wife (safety first). They only have about 20 taps but it’s all great beer on ever tap. They have a good bottle selection and the srevers are wonderful. I brough in my backpack and I was able to sit at a table, read and drink great beer. On top of that I had a waleye Rachel and it was superb. The fries are sublime aswell. This place is great high recommended!!!!
