Bar/restaurant in the Longfellow area of Minneapolis. Quite crowded on a Sunday evening, but we got seats within 10-15 minutes. Very busy bar, with only two servers, and the one who served us was, how to put it....surly? A bit noisy, with three sports TVs and medium-loud music. Good burgers -- the flagship burger, "The Blucy," was great. Nine taps with beers that are always available (including one devoted to Hamm’s) and four seasonal rotating taps. Northern Midwest stuff and others. Happy hour deals are pretty good: 2-5pm $2 pints and 9pm to closing $3.50 pints.

Been here a couple times - finally another location to (hopefully) take some of the pressure of the undersized St. Paul location. Same great Jucy’s, solid tap lineup, and a nice open space inside with plenty of free street parking in the area.

Stopped over here after ABR last night. Great beers on tap from the tap takeovers from earlier in the week. It was Saturday night so the place was packed. I heard this place is packed every night. A little bit bigger than BDP, but not by much. They probably turn away more people than they serve. Service was excellent even when it was packed. Easily one of the best places in town to get a Juicy/Blucy and the tots are very good.
