Stopped in at Eagle Street for a pint and a bite to eat on a past trip to St. Paul. Easy to get to location, right across from the Xcel Energy Center. Lots of neon beer signs so easy to spot fromt he outside. Nice atmosphere, kind of an upscale sports bar. Open and clean, was very quiet the afternoon I visited. Staff was friendly and helpful, but was happy to leave me alone to watch the game on one of several TVs. About a dozen taps, the standards (Bud, Bud Light, Miller), imports (Bass, Guinness), and locals/craft (Summit Pale Ale, Sam Adams, etc). I had a Red Hook ESB and a Long Hammer IPA. Not sure about bottled beers selections, but they have a number sitting on the shelf/window sill above the bar. The food was good - large portions, tastey, good prices.
Good place to grab a pint and watch some sports, buy I'm sure it gets crazy when there are games or concerts at Xcel.

Eagle Street is a nice little corner bar located across from Xcel Energy Center and the Liffey and just down the street is McGovern's and Vine Park, so this little section of town is a shoe in for some decent drinkin'. They have alot of the usual suspects on-tap with the everywhere local Summit EPA, and of course Guinness, Bass, Samual Adams, a couple others and the macros too, no surprises there. Bottle selection is a little better with a small selection of Bell's, Capital, Anchor, Moose Drool, Newcastle, Pilsener Urquel, nothing out of the ordinary as of lately around the Twin Cities. What, no Schell's? Seems everywhere ya go everyones got the same taps and bottles. Only a few places just have a bit more to choose from which this place has.
Food is quite good and not to bad for prices, mostly regular American fare with lots of sandwiches, burgers, salads, and appetizers. Service is good and the place really isn't so big that they can't handle the busy times. Although I have seen lines of people standing outside during Xcel Energy events so who knows what its like then? The inside looks kinda like a small warehouse with brick walls, big windows, good amount of tables, stools, and a few booths, it used to be a antique store and you can tell. Has a very small outside seating area on the busy corner of Kellogg and 7th which would be fine if not for the noisy traffic that seems to never stop. Parking can be hassle, you'd be lucky if ya can find a spot on the street so be prepared to either pay in ramp somewhere and/or walk to get to this place or any other place in this part of town. Its a boomin' area thanks to the Xcel.

The ultimate corner bar, located as a storefront in a turn of the century one and a little extra story brownstone that's so common in Minnesota. Tons of light shine through the enormous windows. Nice original interior brick wall and exposed steel beams, I like places that show their structure and history. Nice lack of plants. Booths, tables and chairs, and outside sidewalk seating on iron furniture. Granite bar seats about 15 with two wide screen plasma monitors for TV. On tap are two Summits (Pale and one seasonal), Guinness, Boulevard Wheat, Bass, Sammy Lager, and the macros. The kegs could be kept a couple of degrees warmer. Bottle selection is not bad, includes two or more Full Sail, Kalamazoo, Big Sky, Capital, and Anchor beers along with the yuppie standards like Pilsener Urquel, Spaten, Newcastle etc. I haven't tried the food, but this place has a loyal lunchtime crowd. Not a bad place, it'll be fun watching the snow fall on Kellogg and 7th come wintertime.
