Surdyk's is in a great location. Close to the U of M campus, and a much larger selection than Dinkytown Wine and Spirits, and a great deal cheaper than U Liquors.

The service has always been exceptional. I've never had a problem with any of the employee's. If I can't find something on the shelves, they are very knowledgeable and usually know what your talking about and where it is.

There is ample parking space always. One of the best qualities of this store is the parcel service. If you buy too much to carry back to your car, take a card and pull up to the front door. The employee will gladly load your car for you. They are always friendly about it as well!

The selection for beer is limited, but still impressive. There is only about 2 isles of beer, the the variety is impressive. I usually check online before I go to see if they have what I want, but I haven't been disappointed yet.

I was slightly disappointed with this place. Felt like a converted Walgreens/CVS and was not very inviting. The staff was very nice and were trying to help, but I felt the selection was way too generic for Minneapolis and it felt like anything really special would pass them up.

Surdyk's definitely has a wine and spirits focus. 10-15 years ago their beer selection was something to behold, but the shelf space for beer is basically unchanged since then and the selection isn't actually much better either. All that means that they're only a bit above average these days. Prices are average to slightly above average.

High-end liquor store. Prices have become more reasonable, but you're definitely paying more for quality service. Not recommended if you're a beer geek, but a good place for beginners with lots of questions.

They have a good selection especially of Belgians and Germans but watch the labels, some of the imported stuff can sit on a shelf for a long time. Their cheese shop is one of the best in town.
