The times I've been here they've usually had a good jazz trio playing in the background. Not too loud--allows for conversation yet offering some good music--over adds to a pleasant ambiance. Lots of windows also gives it a good vibe. Granted not the dark, dim-lit pub feeling, but still great in its own respect. They have a huge selection of good beers on tap and a fair amount in bottle as well. I had some food--a burger, I think--which was good but don't remember too much about their food. Usually when I've been there its been pretty busy but haven't had trouble getting a table. It's a decent size so shouldn't be the type of place that runs out of room easily.

I like this place-urban, cozy, personal, and full of people who love craft beer. The service is way above average, the bartenders are knowledgeable and treat you like you belong there. I love the appetizers with perhaps
two draught pours, sometimes the same, sometimes different. My only complaint, if there is one, that there's nowhere to hang a coat when you have one.

Don’t you love it when a place has the highest rating in the area, and you go there and it actually lives up to it? We went here for brunch. It was great. There were two guys playing live music. The beer list was really amazing. The service was nice and knowledgeable but not overbearing. If you like beer and are in the Minneapolis/St Paul area, this is a MUST visit.

plenty of parking in a nice street setting building is cool looking from the outside and kind of cool on the inside hugh selection of brews both on tap and in the bottle lots of limited bottles and taps , the service was just average as the waiter was a bit off putting like it was our pleasure just to be here , food was good and served well but way to pricey so Happy Gnome has great brews but lousy uncaring service with inflated prices on beer and food
