Surdyk's is in a great location. Close to the U of M campus, and a much larger selection than Dinkytown Wine and Spirits, and a great deal cheaper than U Liquors.

The service has always been exceptional. I've never had a problem with any of the employee's. If I can't find something on the shelves, they are very knowledgeable and usually know what your talking about and where it is.

There is ample parking space always. One of the best qualities of this store is the parcel service. If you buy too much to carry back to your car, take a card and pull up to the front door. The employee will gladly load your car for you. They are always friendly about it as well!

The selection for beer is limited, but still impressive. There is only about 2 isles of beer, the the variety is impressive. I usually check online before I go to see if they have what I want, but I haven't been disappointed yet. (898 characters)

Surdyk's definitely has a wine and spirits focus. 10-15 years ago their beer selection was something to behold, but the shelf space for beer is basically unchanged since then and the selection isn't actually much better either. All that means that they're only a bit above average these days. Prices are average to slightly above average. (338 characters)

High-end liquor store. Prices have become more reasonable, but you're definitely paying more for quality service. Not recommended if you're a beer geek, but a good place for beginners with lots of questions. (207 characters)

They have a good selection especially of Belgians and Germans but watch the labels, some of the imported stuff can sit on a shelf for a long time. Their cheese shop is one of the best in town. (194 characters)

Obviously with as big of a liquor store as Surdyks they are going to have a wide selection of liquor, beer wine, cigars, cheese etc....They will have a large staff, an atmosphere of classiness, knowledge of what they sell and obviously try to compete to be the biggest and best liquor store in the area to get anything listed above. But this is all they are. I have had to many experiences of terrible service as well as my friends. Stories that come from the owner (who never sounds very friendly and she answers the phone basically any time you call) to people on the sales floor. I'm sorry, but in today's day of age, you better have good customer service or why should you deserve my business? Sketchiness about some of their pricing on certain beers compared to other neighboring stores concerns me about price gauging. Yeah, liquor laws may not carry the law like gas stations but it's still sketch and pretty lame. Avoid this place, they do not deserve your money. Go to someone who actually cares about you because you thought of going to their store. (1,059 characters)
