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.

This was in the airport. Nice vibe and standard airport restaurant feel. The beer was decent and the food was good. Service was slow. Not sure why, maybe just one bartender but he seemed overwhelmed with not that many people. Good selection of food and four of their beers on tap. Burger was nice.

This is a chain and it has a little bit of that chain vibe but overall it is not too bad and a decent place to go with a group for a beer if you are down town. The food is not gourmet but it is edible.

This is a very large brewpub on the main floor of a downtown office building. Typical brewpub look. The beers are fine, nothing great. The service was friendly and helpful. This place would work in a pinch or to take people that aren't into beer quite like we are.
