Atmosphere is pretty laid back and inviting. There's a coffee bar to the left and the main bar to the right. I thought the place was great as it wasn't too snobby and wasn't a dive either. It's just a nice place where people treat you with respect. I always try to sit at the bar and I did both times I've been there. Service was really good on a semi-busy day and was great at a Surly tap take over considering how crazy packed the place was. The selection is semi-good as they have roughly 20 taps (from my recollection). They had some great beers and some that were just OK but nothing really crappy on tap. Basically they have a decent beer selection. I really loved the food I got there. They had an amazing BBQ sandwich with coleslaw on top that was really good. They are a semi-gastro pub and I think they do an OK job at it. The beer and the food are pretty darn good. The taps are pretty reasonable and for the quality of food I got I thought the price tag was reasonable. Great place and will definitely hit the place when I'm in the neighborhood.

If I lived in Minneapolis, this is where I’d be. It has a great attitude. There is a coffee bar on the left, open in the morning to the late evening, and a beer bar on the right, open in the afternoon to late night. We went here in between the ceremony and reception of a wedding. I can’t imagine a better place to have stopped. Unpretentious attitude but a great beer list. Really nice staff. Awesome food. Power outlets. GO HERE.

I like Muddy Waters, the beer list is ok but the food is a little pricy and TOO Gastro for me.

I get they want to be a Gastro Beer Bar, but having a couple of solid staples done more traditionally would be great.

Good service and good staff make it a great place for a decent beer.

I would suggest living the beer menu, by that I like to read the beer list and judge the style, verse asking the beer tenders all the time.

It only takes a commitment to that.

I appreciate the beer tenders know the beers or have been spoken to about the beers, I HATE when asked "What kind of beer do you drink?"

Really, I'm in a fucking craft beer bar (Supposedly) I may not remember all the beer names, but I know types and styles and what I may want at that particular moment.

List the Beer Name, the brewery, the style, the ABV, serving size and if you can notes or pairing notes.
