Stopped on a Tuesday evening, walked in couldnt decide if i should seat myself or not, elected for a seat watching Lyndale ave, took a while for a server to appear, she offered me the tap list and off we went, Once ordering everything was fast, crowd was minimal but a good mix of hipsters drinking PBR, Punk fans dressed in all black leather and younger crowd dressed just like me. Food was good but a tad pricey as are the drinks, no samplers to be had here. Once I got a server everything moved swiftly and she was happy to talk about beer even giving her take on some surly stuff on tap. all in all a cool place, just hard to come here with all the other options. samplers would make me come here again.

Doing an Uptown tour and this was the first stop. Smaller place with a dozen or so on tap. Nothing special to note on tap, but have heard they do solid events. I just wasnít really feeling this place tonight, but will need to come back and give it another shot.

I donít make it here a lot, but I should more often. I know they have a lot of events. Iím usually impressed by their selection and always find something hard to find on tap. Service is very accomdating.

A cool combination bar and coffee shop that is also a restaurant. The front area contains seating and the coffee shop with a long bar in the more narrow part of the restaurant in the back. Servers were friendly and were able to offer up some suggestions. Selection was solid with all sorts of different beers on the taps. I didnít try food on my visit. Prices were competitive. A solid bar but, in the competitive Minneapolis/St. Paul environment, not elite.

Muddy Waters is worth the stop in uptown as there will usually be something fairly unique on tap; they seem to have a good relationship with distributors despite the relatively short tap list. Sit at the bar and check the chalkboard, because the printed menus are often out of date and many options are only listed with the entirely useless "rotating" descriptor. The server might know, or might not. The bartender who is a locally famous rapper might be a cool dude, but he might know, or he might not. They do have the chalkboard though. The food quality is high - if crawling through the beer stops in lyn-lake, this is the place for dinner.

Very cute little place in what looks like a very happening area. Pretty good size beer list with lots of locals - although they were out of the first two I tried to order. Food menu looks good - some upscale (in a good way) apps and sandwiches with a few entrees. Service needs to be very improved though - besides being out of some beers on their "beer list", the waitress needs a serious attitude adjustment. I will definitely try to come back though and just hope for a different server!

Visited August 15, 2013 with kbutler.

Wow, this place is hipster central. Tight black clothes, thick rimmed glasses, and tattoos everywhere. The decor and the clientele made me feel like I was in San Francisco. Not that I really mind, just kind of a funny observation. The servers were really nice and even knew a thing or two about the beer they were serving. I had a glass of the Summit Saga IPA (meh) and Founders All Day IPA (awesome). Also ordered a plate of yucca fries which were good for what they are. Prices werenít cheap but not terrible either. Good beer selection, would return. Also next door to Lyndale Tap House and across the street from Herkimer and Moto-i. Around the corner from Bryant Lake Bowl.

If I lived in Minneapolis, this is where Iíd be. It has a great attitude. There is a coffee bar on the left, open in the morning to the late evening, and a beer bar on the right, open in the afternoon to late night. We went here in between the ceremony and reception of a wedding. I canít imagine a better place to have stopped. Unpretentious attitude but a great beer list. Really nice staff. Awesome food. GO HERE.

Went with the wife on a crowded weekend night. Waited 45 minutes standing and drinking beer. They often do tap take overs here. Surly

Another solid place in the "beer strip" on Lyndale. Good selection, nice atmosphere, good selection.

Good beer bar with lots of quality taps, and food was quite good too. Loud and packed. I guess itís a great go to option for the locals. I would like to come back here.
