“Funky bar atmosphere with good greasy food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is a favorite of ours, because the food is always good and there are plenty of beer choices. It can be greasy, but the soups, burgers, and ruebens are always good. Service is okay, sometimes slow and it can get loud in there if there are college students around. We usually go before the bar actions starts, so not much of a problem for us.

“My favorite place in Northfield”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Grundy's is clearly my kind of "joint." Nothing fancy. This is a plain, ordinary college bar - the type I frequented when I went to college(probably too often). The burgers are certainly good. The service is decent, not great. The atmosphere gives kind of a "frat house" feeling. The "Rueb" is part of Grundy's but it doesn't give me the same feel. Grundy's is a special "joint" and I think you'll like it if you just want a laid back, funky kind of college joint. It isn't great. It isn't fancy, but it is fun.

“Old and tired...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

The Rueb has been pretty much the same since the 80's. It used to be a fun atmosphere but needs to updated. The food and drinks are over priced. If you want to eat there, save your money and order food from Schwans. I think everything the Rueb serves started frozen and in a bag. The service is slow. . .
The Grundy's burger is still pretty good!

“Great place for a sandwich and a stein!”

Went there after playing a show - so we wandered in a few at a time out of our group. Service was awesome for us.

The hamburger and Reuben sandwich we had was excellent! The wait staff was also very helpful and attentive. The appetizers were also very good.
