Stub and Herb. The staple bar/restaurant on or near the U of M campus. The staff's shirts say clever statements such as "The bathroom's are downstairs" (which they are) and "Your grandfather drank here." So lets get to it.

The atmosphere. Perfect! There are TV's dispersed evenly throughout the dining area. There is always a sporting event to watch, or Sportscenter, or breaking news, etc. Everyone eating or drinking is having a good time. I've never seen anyone not enjoying themselves.

The quality. Great quality. Everything about this place is high quality. The service, selection, environment.

Service was great. Our waitress came back numerous times and was very helpful.

Selection. They have a surprisingly wide selection of beer and other drinks. Very impressive to say the least.

The food. Oh, god the food! By far my favorite part. The menu is admittedly short. Mostly burgers and sandwiches. The quality of the meat is what makes the burgers so good. May I suggest a Signature burger with fries and 10,000 lakes dressing. Fabulous!

Overall, this place is one of my favorite places to eat/drink. Great atmosphere. However, avoid at all costs on a game night. No matter what sport, this place will be PACKED! Here is a fair warning. Next fall, when the TCF bank stadium opens, this place will be hopping (no pun intended).

A college joint filled with college kids. When the kids are around its loud and energetic - sometimes too energetic. When they are not around, it can be dull and somewhat depressing.

Visited on a summer Monday at 6:30 pm. Place was slow. Just off UM campus. There are definitely better beer bars in the twin cities. Walk to surly less than a mile away.

V - Typical dark and dank northern latitude bar. Definitely beer is part of their focus but not particularly beer centric. Curious as to how often the taps rotate based on their rather permanent looking beer menu. 3.5
Q- All beers in shaker pints (-). All the glasses look clean. 3.5
Sel - About 35 on tap with BMC in bottles. A good selection focused on local brews - Surly, Indeed, Steel Toe, Fulton, Lift Bridge, Summit, Bent Paddle. Also a sour on tap. It was summer so only one stout on tap 4
S - Staffed by university students. Friendly but distant. 3.75
F - Ordered the bleu burger which was good. Fries were pedestrian. 3.5

Only thing I didn't like about the place was the dungeon bathroom that gave fear to possible transgressions against my person.

Grreat beer selection. Service was prompt. Reminded me of my college years but with better beer by far.

Awesome tap list always and often unbeatable beer prices on some terrific brews. If heading to any Gopher games this is a must stop!
