we had a large party for Mothers day. Service was top notch. Food was above average and you had the feeling you were wanted. You felt like they cared if everything was going well. I definitely will be back. I also liked the layout of the bar area.

Googled and found this restaurant in downtown Mankato. Great IPA draft beers, nice atmosphere, prompt service and good food. Thanks for this gem of a place. Even had a few people enjoying the patio on the last weekend in March in Minnesota--sun definitely makes it warmer than the 40 degrees it was. Then traveled a few blocks away for dessert at Mom & Pops, a new ice cream shop.

We decided to go to the Pub 500 for a couple of appetizers before a concert and we were very glad we did. We got a couple of seats at the bar and it was very crowded not only because of the concert but also because it was a Friday night. Great atmosphere, cold beer, friendly bartenders and staff and great food! We had wings and deep fried pickles...both were excellent. Would've like to have tried more, but we had time restraints because of the concert. Will definitely go back for a complete meal! Seen lots of food being brought out and everything looked really good. Can't wait to visit again! Good job!!

Always consistent and friendly. The food and service is exactly what we look for when eating out. Attentive service, a owner that cares and appreciates his patrons, great food and fun atmosphere. Have never had a bad meal here. Homemade sloppy joes, great wings and sandwiches and burgers, and killer fish & chips. Fantastic beer selection and in my opinion the best selection south of the Twin Cities. Brought part of our kid's basketball team and parents here on a Sat eve after calling ahead to see if they could take us. Thankfully they made it work. The kids and adults all had a great time and would definitely said they would come back for the experience. Live music some evenings also! Love this place.

I love Pub 500! The food is good, they have a wide variety of drinks and beers, and the atmosphere is low key. I will keep going back.
