This place is one of my absolute favorites! A very cool bar with a "roof" above it and lots of booths around the edges. Service is always great and they are very knowledgeable about the beers and willing to take time to explain things. One of the best selections in the city, if not the best in terms of quantity and quality. Samplers available. Food is delicious! Prices a touch high, but worth it for the quality! Love this place!

Food was great, beer was great, and the service was great. That it was all made available in an exceedingly comfortable and casual setting made visiting The Happy Gnome a very enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

My favorite place to go for beers. Terrific selection of great beers, very knowledgable and helpful staff, great patio in the summer. A little pricey, but worth it. And flights are now available, but F’ing outrageously priced.

My new benchmark for gastro pub type restaurants. Sat at the bar on a busy August Saturday night. Bartender was prompt and knowledgable about the food menu for the night, and about the many styles of beer on tap. I focused on Belgian and sour beers to accompany a salad and the chef’s charcuterie platter (delicious!), and had many options to choose from: Rodenbock Grand Cru, a Bell’s sour mash, and Duvel all on tap. Big windows onto a quiet street of shops. Lots of wood on the interior. Bustling kitchen. The place has the ambiance of a very popular neighborhood treasure - all tables were full and noisy, inside and outside - and there was a wedding party going on upstairs.

Incredible food. Incredible taps. They had three years of Three Philo on tap. I went on Sunday and they had $3 10oz pours of Great Divide Hercules. Not to mention the others. They clean their lines EVERY Monday so on Sunday they discount beers to move it while it’s fresh and maintain their actual lines. These are the people you want owning a bar.

Great selection, got the pizza which was good but not great, knowledgeable staff. They always have hard to find beers, though sometimes it can get a bit pricey.

Great place. A go-to for a good night out to try something new. Check out the patio on a nice summer day, gorgeous

The first "splurge" I made after coming here was to take a trip here. Their beer and whiskey list is (for a restaurant) pretty outstanding. The food is QUITE delish, and it has a great patio area. I have had nothing but nice, earnest servers, and on the one occasion that I had the chance to visit the upstairs area I was pretty impressed by the swankiness. This place has got swag, Sir.

Finally got around to checking this place out. I went on a Monday afternoon, having the day off. As I was one of only a few people there, the service was great. I would have to re-rate on a busier night. The selection is everythng a beer geek, I mean enthusiast, would want. For me, on a day like this, the ability to enjoy a fine cigar is a big plus. They seem to have installed some nice ionizers, so even with other smokers, it wasn’t a problem. I will go there again, at an off time, to enjoy another fine beer (in proper glassware) and another fine cigar.

My favorite stop during my weekend in MN. Very cool and spacious place with an amazing beer selection. Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee was the standout. Good service from Charles, who was behind the bar during both visits we made here. Chatted us up when he wasn’t running around pouring drinks and was attentive. Stopped in for brunch on Sunday and they had a jazz band playing up front with football on the flat screens in the background. The #1 spot on my list next time through.
