Been here a few times, mainly for scotch since they have a great holiday sale for single malts. They do have a great beer selection as well. Pretty much anything that we get in Minnesota, they will have it. Most of the stuff is room temp, but they do have lots of cooler doors too. I gave it a 2 for service since I have never been asked if I need any help nor have I seen an employee other then the cashiers. The place is always packed too, but it is in downtown MPLS so what do you expect. Price is pretty on par.

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.
