Visited November 17, 2011.

Last stop of the night. Kind of a pain to get to because of all the construction going on at the time. Despite that there are some neat buildings to see in the area. The inside of the place was very dark but busy. Bathrooms are downstairs and there is a bunch of beer related stuff on the walls in the stair case.

The beer list was alright. Actually there were some good ones on there but not what I was expecting. I did make it a point to try a Grain Belt while there. I got a kick out of the mixed drink menu since they had a drink called a Wop Bomb. The bartender had a kind of funny shirt on that said "your grandpa drank here" on the back.

I’d have to check the map to see what else is in the area but it’s probably worth a revisit.

Stopped by here twice during the Darkness weekend festivities. The first the night was during the Darkness release party and then I decided to come back to give an accurate review because the beer list for the party was different than a normal night. For the party a pretty sick list, the regular list is average. Its got lots of MN beers but nothing special, I was pretty bored. The atmosphere is so-so, a total college bar, nothing spectacular. The crowd is young with beer people mixed in. They do have several promotions mixd in which is cool, but again geared toward the college crowd. The bartenders seem to know a decent amount about beer, the servers know very little, a mixed bag. Neither offered very good suggestions. A decent beer bar that probably gets a little too much pub. If I was in college I’d love this place. Worth stopping by but if I lived here probably would only be a once in the blue moon stop.

Great place - tons of great beers with a lot of support for local/regional brewers. Still have a pinball machine, which is great. Food is just okay - pretty good selection, but the quality is just average. On-campus location attracts the party and pre/post game crowd.

This is a fun place with a great, rotating selection of hard to find beers. A huge upgrade over the place I used to avoid when I was in grad school.

Updated rating 9/13/08. Much different place than before. Staff is far more friendly and helpful, the bad attitudes are gone. Food is standard bar fare, and better than average even with a small menu. Some items are made with beer. There is always cheap beer availalbe, and every month they rotate brewers on their $3.50 pint list. Good happy hour.It is a good place now. I have been here many times, but not recently, so the increased selection must be something new. Selection or not, I never go here anymore because this place has the rudest service I have experienced in a Twin Cities bar it is has been that way all of the 10 or so times I have been there. Food is ok. Crowd is mosty university students. Decide for yourself if the selection makes this place worthwhile, but I advise strongly against it based on the service. Sally’s a block away offers the same atmosphere, much better service, and a comparable beer selection. On my last visit in April 2006, the staff was pleasant and I had no complaints. Their selection is better than average for beer. I will go back and change my rating if the staff is again pleasant. But I do have a new complaint and that is that this place is dirty and needs serious work to improve the ambiance. Ties with the local Sportman’s for worst bathroom.As of March 2008, the service, as well as the issues of disrepair, have improved considerably. Score raised.

I had heard the name of this place before, but didn’t know anything about it until a friend invited me to join him before attending a Univ. of Minnesota women’s basketball game at nearby Williams Arena. They have a pretty good tap beer selection, although apparently that hasn’t always been the case. Examples of what they had on when I was there: Bell’s Best Brown and Two Hearted, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Celebration, Anchor Steam, Summit Extra Pale, James Page White Ox, Leinenkugel’s Apple Spice, Blue Moon, Sam Adams Boston Lager and Winter’s Bourbon (AB). Located in the heart of the University of Minnesota campus area. Since Town Hall is across the river from campus, this may be the closest place to campus to get a good beer.

A fun place. Was here a while back and it was too busy to sit down - this time it was empty (middle afternoon) and nice friendly service. Board games. Okay food. Fun atmosphere. Good selection on U of M campus, so younger crowd. Overall a nice place.

Visited on a slow Sunday night, I think I was one 3 people in the place. The bartender was very friendly and knew quite a bit about local brews. I got a flight of some local stuff - they had quite a bit of MN crafts on tap. I had a burger which was pretty good. Worth a trip.

This is a U of M bar, so I have been to it a few times over the past year. The atmosphere is pretty decent, has always been a fair number of people but not too crowded (except on Beer Buffet nights when the line to get in stretches around the corner). Some of the staff seem pretty friendly, some seem like they are doing you a favor by pouring you the drink. Pretty decent taps selection, and alright prices but there are local places with better selection, and other places with cheaper prices, so it doesn’t stand out in either regard. Never tried the food. **Better re-rate to come, but they have really improved.
