vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4.25 | selection: 4 | food: 4.25

Visited on a Sunday evening (a lot of places were already closed by 6pm in downtown Minneapolis). A good find as I only stumbled upon it after my first two choices were already closed. Sat at the bar connected to the shellfish prep area.

V - No beer vibe, but a nice bar and restaurant. Clean, bright, welcoming. A large space with two bars and outside seating. 3.5

Q - No concerns, though all beers are served in shaker pint glasses. Conversation seem to indicate that kegs were not sitting too long. My can of PsuedoSue was two months old. 4.0

S - I was one of only two parties at the bar. The service was attentive and friendly. Didn't quiz the bartended on his knowledge. 4.25

Sel - A good selection for a place that did not seem to be touting itself as a beer bar. Did I mention that I had a PsuedoSue? Good local selection and good US flavor as well. Some Belgians in the cooler. 4.0

F - I had the "Lobster Lucy," which is a burger with lobster on top. A heavy dish but good eating. I like any restaurant west of PA that knows what Old Bay seasoning is. These guys have containers on the table. Overall a good selection of seafood and raw bar. 4.25

Brick & Morter restaurant that evolved from food truck. Its in the North Loop with a large amount of seating indoor and out, a full service seafood menu features shellfish and fish with scallops and many fish/seafood selections. Most taps are local, surly summit, steel toe,fulton, and other smaller brewers. Nothing rare on the beer menu just good, its close to Fulton,Freehouse and Modist, breweries. Worth a stop however the food is pricey.

This place evolved from a food truck that features lobster rolls. They now feature gulf coast food. They have 17 beers on tap and 19 bottle and can selections - most are local and regional craft.
