Great drinks! Bartender is friendly. Public transportation nearby. Place is warmth and cozy. A lot of beer choices; but my favorite is ace pineapple cider since im not a beer drinker.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Republic. We were there on a Wednesday evening, so it was pretty quiet. There are 3 different room areas, the bar with bar-top tables and two rooms with regular tables. We enjoyed a roasted beets & quinoa salad (arugula, pears, herb rolled chevre, white balsamic) and pork tacos (pork shoulder, guacamole, cabbage slaw)... More

The beer selection at Republic is probably top ten in the Twin Cities. They always have great beer on tap, with a wide variety as well. I really liked the happy hour burger and fries, great value.

Food is great, plus if you like Dogwood coffee this is the place to go. Three bucks gets you a bottomless cup. I would eat their everyday if I could.

Our group of seven had brunch here on a Sunday morning, and the results were definitely mixed. My eggs benedict and my wife's omelette were ok, but not great. We thought both were a little bland. The others tried various brunch items and said they were good, but I noticed no one cleaned their plates. The service was fantastic and... More

So I stayed at the hotel across the street before and loved the food. Went back tonight but just like most Sequels it was a let down. The perfect burger I had before was a distant memory, now they cook a burger to one temporary, dead

Stopped in for late happy hour early dinner and not disappointed on any account. Great beer and drinks list (cocktails on tap are seriously strong). All four diners very satisfied with meals, my duck burger was sensational, one of the best ever for me. Service from Grace was attentive but not annoying. Food arrived piping hot and wait time was...

I love the fact that they have happy hour until 6pm daily. Also they have a grass fed burger that comes with a small salad for only $6 at happy hour. also so many great beer and hard ciders to choose from. In the summer a very nice patio too.
