I went here with an out of town BA for dinner before a Timberwolves game on Tuesday. We arrived with plenty of time to have a couple pints, grab some grub, and get to the game. This, unfortunately didn't happen. Our food took almost 45 minutes from when we ordered. Food was good, but not really that warm. Which brings us to the biggest problem we had here.
Our waitress was incompetent. Food took forever and given the warmth of it, she left it sitting a while before picking it up. We were left with empty pints for periods as long as 15 minutes at a crack as was everyone in our area. If I do go here again, I will be sitting at the bar.
Place is fairly nice, but poorly lit. Pool tables are overpriced to play. Bar area is comfortable and easy enough to find people you are meeting at. Adequate seating.
Selection was average. I haven't really been a fan of most of their beers I have tried, which is mostly their regular 5 beers. I went with one of the seasonals this time, the RT Ryebock, and since it was good stuck with it for the night. I think the seasonals are what give the brewer the chance to make some beers that he wants to make. Stick with them when you go here.
Prices weren't too bad, although burgers at $10 seems a bit much.

in Lasalle plaza we entered off of hennepin ave..the bar is very big but on the darker side A huge bar in the center is surrounded by tables and a fair amount of tv,s... lots of taps but only RB taps no guest taps. Service was good as the place was crowded food was presentable but just average bar food, the place was fun to be at lots of people and a good atmosphere..not a place or destination for me.. but a stop if you are taking in a show on hennepin, chambers.le meridian and many theaters, craft bars are nearby

A- A bit dark in the bar. There are plenty of tv's for watching Twins games/other sports. There's a pool table as well. Otherwise, seems like a general bar and grill to me.
Q- Everything was served and done well enough. No cleanliness or quality issues.
Ser- Slow but friendly service. It took quite a while for my second beer to come (longer than it should have), but everyone there is eager to help and the waitresses knew quite a bit about their rotating taps.
Sel- About 8-10 taps, of varying styles.
F- The reuban was subpar, rather bland unfortunately. The coleslaw was pretty tasty though.
Val- About 5 bucks a beer, 10 bucks for sandwich. I would go back for a beer or two, but the food didn't strike my fancy.
