REVIEWS OF Crooked Pint Ale House IN Minnesota

Cheryl Van Dyke

Tons of Juicy Lucy selections. Try the beer cheese! Get the tots! They are huge and delicious. Possibly the best I've ever tasted. Good prices. Great comfort food.

Kevin Martin

Don't let the finishes of the restaurant trick you...they definitely don't reflect the quality of the food. I'd say the French Dip sandwich was one of the best tasting ones I've had in a while. If the bun was a little softer it would probably be in the top 5 best ones ever. I'd go back for sure.

Ian Pitts

I call this special restaurant once a month because I love the ambiance that is characterizes this restaurant. The team is highly friendly and well trained. The service is awfully efficient. Needless to say, the food you eat is exceptionaly good. I came more than once and I was always pleased. The price is honest. I suggest this restaurant to my friends and family.

Christine Briceno

Great food, great service! Outstanding draft selection and TVs all over... great choice for game day, or late night cold one! Highly recommend the parmesan fries!!!

Nick Huseby

Good spot for a burger and a beer. They have a few different takes on the Juicy Lucy and a good tap selection. Convenient parking, too.

Cindy lessard

First time I have ever had a juicy Lucy. And it was amazing! I had an orginal one and it surpassed my expectations. My boyfriend got the sweet heat? And it was in love with it. I upgraded to garlic parm fries. Not the most amazing but were tasty. Can't wait to go back and try some other things on the menu. I wanted to try everything.

Brian Curry

Great atmosphere with quite a few TVs. Great selection of local beers as well as a decent menu. I had the juicy with ghost peppers. Just the right amount of heat

eric buckman

Amazing burgers and fries. Plenty of booze. Lots of TVs. Great staff. Yoga studio next door. What's not to love?

Jeff N

Great place for a burger and a brew! They have a nice selection of beers and food on their menu. I always get one of their "juicy Lucy" burgers and they never disappoint. Not to mention they almost always have Groupons available which helps offset the elevated beer prices.

Shaleen Meyer

Good food with lots of fancy burgers and sandwiches. Not awesome for vegetarians but there was a veggie taco which was pretty good. Lots of local beers on tap with a great rotating seasonal selection. Rewards program. Not bad for a corporate restaurant. Big place, nice atmosphere, not loud. Friendly service. Nothing but paid parking options but hey, it's downtown.

Rae Jones

Fun place for group gathering and food is fantastic! My favorite is the BBQ chicken flat bread pizza.

Julien Arino

Weird (but not uninteresting) mix between a traditional sports bar and beer place. The food is okay, nothing super innovative; very classic pub grub. The beer list is substantial with mostly micros, including a lot of locals. Service was fast, competent and friendly, although with the usual tendency in this sort of joint to seem to want you out the door the moment you are finished.

william harrison

Green Mill in disguise...meh, food is pretty ok, drink prices seem on par with other establishments. Nothing special, nothing not. A good place if you're looking for a decent place.

Thomas Grable

Food was great. Service was a tad on the slow side.

Lindsey Bye

The spicy juicy Lucy was indeed surprisingly spicy. My eyes watered and my mouth burned but it was tasty.

Ashir Gupta

Solid burgers in a great night atmosphere. Not much more to say. It's just really good

Ceagan Lino

I don’t leave one-star reviews often, but this was truly inexcusable. The only reason it gets a single star instead of an FDA complaint is because the service was OK. When the food came, I tried a few of the cold, soggy fries. They tasted distinctly of damp salt, which was a great first impression. Next, a sizable bite of my burger made brown liquid squirt violently all over my shirt, face, and lap. It tasted like greasy air. No flavor whatsoever. I was promised a sweet and spicy burger, and what I received was a violating, bland, truly godforsaken excuse for a meal. It is with no exaggeration whatsoever that I call this the worst burger I have ever eaten without getting food poisoning. Another in my party got cheese curds with their (equally awful) burger. There was no flavor of cheese nor of curd, but they definitely tasted like leftover microwaved tater tots. The soda was flat, devoid of syrup, and an all-around effective summary of our experience. I paid with a groupon to get more than half off, and I still felt robbed. If there was a nationwide food shortage, and this restaurant had the only food left in the city, it would take some convincing to get me to come back and not starve.

Elaina Martinez

Came to the rescue for late night food on a Thursday! Delicious nachos and flatbreads and the service was great. I'll be back!

Yuker Riley

Service and food was excellent as always and I'll definitely be back again and again

J9s Account

Sara Muhlbauer

Great appetizers, drinks and my first experience with a Lucy!!! Totally awesome! Service was stellar!

HT Ong

Great place to relax n drink

Arthur Sprague

Stupidly expensive. Not worth a visit.

Kris Krager

Comfort food is good not great. Ambience is bar casual service is courteous and attractive.

Nikki Remington

Had their veggie burger & loved it! They have an apple pie drink that I highly recommend. Cozy atmosphere. You get so much food!

Patrick Byrne

Friendly service, good food, nice beer selection... Jane did a great job making us feel comfortable. Could not ask for more.

Leah Nelson

OMG- best juicy Lucy I ever had. Waitress Nikki was great, food came pretty quick for a Vikings day. Thought price matched quality of food. I would go back again.

Alex Moura

Very nice place for a burger and beer!

Brian Sweet

Lots of options, friendly staff, and plenty of space. We love hitting up this place for happy hour.

Rui Carlos Costa da Cunha

Awesome place, great staff and beer choice galore will for sure come back

martinique pakbaz

Great food for the price!

Joel Collette

Aside from little on-site parking, the food was great and good service. Nice, roomy booths.

Jed R

Great Lucys, extensive beer selection

Danny Sims

Really good food in addition to a great beer selection

Javier Osorio

Great tasting food, you will not be disappointed.

Logan Wood

Food was terrible! Burger was cold and overcooked. Dessert was sub par for the cost. Very disappointed. I will say that our waiter was very helpful but even he was not willing to resolve the food issues.

Taylor Bullard

Not a fan. Place is constantly freezing in the winter. Been there twice and the food was served cold both times. Apparently management likes to confront patrons who leave poor (but deserved) reviews on Google etc. High employee turnover, poor management, uninspired food and slow service. Won't ever be back.

Josh VH

Have parked in the lot next door for two years now on and off but have never stopped in. Finally did today and the menu was extensive and all sounded amazing. Had the marg flatbread which was succulent. Can't wait to come back again.

Hal Werner

Loved the vibe of this place. Dark and cozy-feeling. Not cozy like small (there's plenty of room). But cozy like warm and comfortable. Had a local beer flight and all 4 brews were delicious. I'm not a local, so I'm not sure I qualify as a juicy Lucy expert, but the pepper jack one I had here was really tasty. Would definitely come back.

Jess Birken

The food here is great, try the beer cheese burger or the fish tacos - yum! Also the staff are friendly and attentive. I was on a tight timeline the other day and the wait staff were slammed but they took great care of us and I really appreciated their teamwork <3

Rod Scott

Food was good, good service under extreme game day circumstances

Abigail Rommel

There's a woman there (likely a manager) who has celiacs disease and she was soooo awesome!!! Great food, spectacular service!!!

Doug Stokes

Pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff. DO NOT PARK across street in parking structure. Arrived for drinks/appetizers at 6:30. Was there for 1 1/2 hrs. Parking fee, was $25. Outrageous. Didn't even think of check rate given evening hours.

Kaeley Smith

We waited an hour and a half for our seats. We still don't have our food. There are people everywhere. I don't care if our food tastes like cardboard (it would be disappointing though) because this staff is pretty incredible. The bartenders are fast. I haven't seen the servers spill anything while navigating the aisles. Billy is great!!! The girls at the front door are professional and efficient. I would have snapped if I had to work this rush but I haven't heard a single worker have any sort of sass or attitude! Thanks Crocked Pint for hiring competent folks! See you next season!!! Update: got our food it was amazing. Who has time to create such beautiful food in a rush?! Thanks, kitchen crew!!

Richard Dudley

Went here for an anniversary dinner on the recommendation from a friend. I normally don’t venture that far south. I was glad I visited. It was a great experience with excellent food and great view. As with any bar, there was a bit of a wait for the drinks but when we finally got them they were delicious! Highly recommended.

Cole Brinker

Love this place A+

Cherie Walker

Awesome food, great customer service and kid friendly, very nice large sitting booths as well.

Dwyn Erichsen

Excellent, the place was crowded, waitress staff were the best. You want to have fun prior to a Viking game, this is where you need to be! Once you are seated the food service is fast! Love this place!

Dak Ultimak

It felt like the cross between a corporate sports-bar and a dive bar you'd never want to visit. It was huge, and dank.

Ron Simon

I had the fish tacos for lunch, very good! Great service. This place is managed well.

Bibi Better

Staff cooks hostesses and waiters work hard af

Jon Lunsford

Had to get my Juicy Lucy fix while in Minneapolis, and Crooked Pint delivered. I really liked their giant tots with cheese and bacon in them. I plan on coming back to try the Peanut Butter and Bacon Lucy with some cheese curds next time. Service was great. The place was fairly empty since the Vikings game was already over and it was late on a Sunday.

William Toulouse

They make a very good Old Fashioned. I recommend that for your cocktail before the meal. Very good burgers. Large portion of fries as a side as well. Lots of beer on tap.


I'm from out of town on a business trip, came in and the vibe was real breezy and relaxing. Set at the bar enjoyed some wings and beer, and I can honestly say everything was wonderful. Bartender was quick and very nice. The queso I took Togo and it was good as well.

John Syversen

Friendly fast service & tasty grub! Mushroom burger and stuffed tots were outstanding!

andy stumpf

Food was okay and service was okay when they actually we're around. Shepard's pie was good. Food was a little overpriced.

Brett B

Great food, awesome atmosphere!

Tony Lloyd

Good service, close to the office I was at, and the food I did try was very tasty. We just popped in for a drink (The Cherry mule was decent), but tried the fried pickles and totchos. The spicy cream cheese dip for the pickles was wonderful, but the totchos steal the show for sure.

Sergey Burstein

Good food and service

Mike Cossette

I had the turkey burger and fries for lunch and it was terrific... juicy and tasty with lots of toppings (avocado, cheese, lettuce,

Susan Nash

Went in for the juicy lucy special, the seever wasn't even aware of the well publicized offer. The food was not that great. Disappointing ....Server seemed to lose interest when we did not partake in alcoholic beverages.

M Cox

First time there. Food was very good.

Josh H

Mac n cheese was amazing! Interesting set up on two levels. Currently under some type of construction but dont let that fool you. It's open!

Kyle Streich

Great service, food and atmosphere


Juicy Lucy a bit small the beer was good and service better

Christopher Tollefson

Great service, and Wednesday night trivia is fantastic.

Josh Brook

Came here for a wedding rehearsal dinner and the staff was great! Food was good, too.


Best Juicy Lucy's . The service was great for our large group

David Tomenes

Great spot to grab a drink and appetizer in a Saturday night!

Melissa Lindberg

Great location for pre gaming. It's just a small walk away from US bank stadium.

Christopher Harris

Great unique burgers with a quality selection of beers and spirits. Menu has something for everyone. The location is perfect for a good bite before a Twins or Vikings game but plan on a wait if you do so before the game. Seating is plentiful normally though. The atmosphere is pretty good but dark inside and a little loud. Staff has always been great during visits.

Cyndy Chancellor

Food was very good. Great fries. Service was also very good.

Rachel Knuckles

Good service and good food

Trey Thomas

Love the food & the environment

Brett Fricke

I ended up at the Crooked Pint because Google had suggested it when we got into Minneapolis. There was no wait and we got taken care of right away. I had read some reviews about the Juicy Lucy, so I had to see if they were right. They were. It was so good, you just have to take it easy on that first bite. The fries were nice and crispy and seasoned perfectly. We also tried the Club and I was super surprised. I had never actually had a Club sandwich and this was the perfect bread to meat ratio with some nice fresh veggies on it. Prices were in line of what I expected. We got a few beers, 2 entrees, an appetizer and it was a little over $65. If you are looking for a nice night in a place with a great atmosphere and food, the Crooked Pint is for you.

Dave B

Servers are always friendly. Food is always decent but nothing that’s over the top. Cheese curds serving is on the small side for the price but good curds. The only real drawback is every time we come we finish our meal (servers have cleared the plates) and it takes forever to get the bill. It was probably fifteen minutes on Sunday and it wasn’t during a busy time.

McKenzie Hennen

We hosted our rehearsal dinner here and they were able to accommodate our large group (40 guests) at an extremely reasonable price. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful! We will be back. Thank you!

Diane Johnson

Awesome food and service !

Brittany Parker

Has Bourbon boneless wing are amaxing fresh taste great burgers

Mike Ellerson

Awesome burgers and a great beer selection

Sarah Taylor

Linda Oostmeyer

Good selection of beer and the food is really delicious!

Nick Butcher

I was in town for a conference and found myself here multiple times in one week. The beer cheese Lucy was heavenly.

Jan Galbreath

Trevor Morales

Awesome bar food with a little twist. Nothing outlandish but different enough to be different

James Kim

Good pub for food and drinks.

Dave Overman

Good food, good service, not pricey.

Matt Ackborn

Jaziel Ramirez

Friendly staff, great food and drinks

Aj gallegos

Wow! Amazing service our waiter was extremely kind and seemed genuinely happy to be working here. We went for lunch a and the breakfast flatbread is outstanding! Definitely recommend this spot. They also offer wine on tap which was something you don’t see everyday. Can’t wait to return!

Scott L

French Dip Juicy Lucy was OMG good! Beer selection awesome...Surly Axeman, my new fav IPA

Elizabeth Harris

I go here semiregularly. They have some pretty good dishes and a great beer selection. You can't use a Groupon on any of the specials (you can get them, but it counts as full price on your Groupon). Bourbon chicken cranberry salad and poutine are delicious. They have several versions of Juicy Lucy, but the pb one was meh. 4 stars because I can usually count on the service to be good, but usually not great. A manager (Steve, I think) was helping out last time I went and he made our experience better.

leo spott

An enjoyable environment for an after work drink. The food is pretty good and would be an excellent place to watch a sporting event.


Went there for dinner with large group. Had a great time. Food was good. Wait staff were fantastic

Andrew Woolcott

Love the space. Great food and service. FYI happy hour not valid during any event downtown so just saying....

Allen Hoppe

Lots of beers. Didn't have time for food but the menu items looked scrumptious.

Jerry Paul

The Apple crisp skillet was fantastic. PepperJack Lucy was just ok. Fries are good. Expensive for quality and quantity of food. I used a Groupon. I wouldn't go here without one. Overpriced. Good beer selection but not great.

Sarah M.

We visited here to have a nice dinner with friends and enjoyed our stay. I got the Peanut Butter Lucy and loved it! Fresh and tasty. I'm not a fan of tater tots but even those were good. All in all we had a pleasant experience.

Sammy Nyquist

A fun atmosphere with the best Juicy Lucies in Minnesota.

Jeff Wohlfahrt

The baked hot dish and chicken tacos were exceptional along with an incredible craft beer selection. Great staff and service.

Amanda Johnson

Great ambiance, food was fantastic. Ate there with some friends, able to carry on a conversation easily without having to yell over too much noise. Friendly staff, too.

Danielle Clifford

Great neighborhood bar with a great selection of beer (lots of local favorites) and great food. Don't pass up the Ellsworth cheese curds! Also, their happy hour is awesome.

Jesse Gjerde

Always have good deals on food and happy hour is relatively cheap

LaShonda Ethridge

Really good food but when I went back for the tacos again the menu had changed. I really liked the tacos.

Jeff Wynn

I love this place and come here all the time! The food is always delicious, the service is great. They have a great beer and liquor selection. I have yet to try something I don’t like. They also do fun specials some nights, which is cool too.

Jen Damon

Great food, service, and beer selection

Dakota Wylde

Juiciest lucys this side of the Mississippi. Good service too!

Curt Gast

This place is always on our radar when we go downtown. Good food good atmosphere.

Melodie Watts

Service and food was excellent. Had the jucy Lucy ghost pepper cheese and sweet chilli burger, best Burger ever. (if you like it hot). Would definitely go back.

Dan Pierce

Crooked Pint is one of our favorite places to eat downtown. The food and service is great.

Brook Wachal

Fun and cozy restaurant. Had that Tavern feeling from the decor to the darker ambiance. There is a large parking lot (paid) that makes this place not a hassle to eat at downtown.

liz lopez

Greeat food n great service

Ashley Fugate

Our conversation went from "oh man we're hungry, to oh wow this beer is good, to holy s*** this food is fantastic! I ordered the PB and Bacon burger. The flavors made so much sense together. I was there last night and I'm still craving more! The watermelon feta salad with arugula was so refreshing! Recommend recommend recommend!!!

Gail Linke

Good food and drinks. Food priced reasonably nut the drinks a little spend. Food and service were excellent and had a wonderful atmosphere.

Austin Conery

Didn’t have their brunch menu for Vikings pregame... kinda disappointing. They also opened 1 hour later than they said they would.

David Mancuso

We had a great Experience, from the time we walked in. Very diverse menu and great selection of Ales. Everyone enjoyed the meal and dessert. The wait staff is very friendly fun and knowledgeable.

Jesse Holmes

They have an impressive beer and food selection for a bar. There's at least a dozen burger variations, as well as made from scratch pot pies, fish and chips, sandwiches, etc... The prices are a bit high, but not outlandish. It's near where I work so my coworkers and I frequently go there for special occasions. I've liked all of food that I've ordered so far.

Pam Wichman

Food was good but the service was really slow considering they were not that busy.

Allen F

Everything was amazing, good beer, burgers and wings

Justin Banks

Good food, good service, good location,great staff...

Patricia Dwyer

Good food. Service very good. Enormous servings for what we ordered. Not disappointed.


Stars and stripes burger. Best burger I've ever tasted.

Nayima Pluviose

Love this place! Me and a close friend always eat here when craving burgers! We had tried some other items that were okay, but their burgers are always amazing ^_^

Karl Ruedy

Good waitress service. Fast food service. Food tasted great. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because the parking can be a hastle. I would recommend this restaurant though.

Danni P

Totchoes are soooo good. House made jumbo tots smothered with bacon, cheese and green onion. Nice beer selections as well. Staff are super friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Will definitely come back.

Jackie Swartz

We tried this location of Crooked Pint for a pre-concert meal and drink. We were glad to get a spot at the bar. The place filled up fast and the bar was packed. The 2 bartenders were awesome! Very friendly. They were extremely busy, but always had a smile when we flagged them down for a drink. The food was also good. We tried the fish and chips, and a chicken sandwich. Both were good (the fish was Walleye, which was a plus). We'll be back!

mykell fann

The juicy Lucy was excellent. My wife had the shimp tacos but she didn't like it because it had too few shimp.

Jeremy Small

Short wait, good food, family friendly.

Chicka Merino

Great veggie burger

Robert B.

Good selection drinks. Food looked good, however we didnt eat here

Henry Dragun

I've been a regular here for nearly a year, every visit being an extremely pleasant experience. The staff here are wonderful, the service is fantastic, the food is delicious (large variety in Lucy's, all being awesome) and the selection of beer is great. I've been to many other bars in downtown Minneapolis, this place just has a nice comfortable environment that I can't really find else where.


Ima say it. I was impressed with their boneless wings. I don't even enjoy boneless wings! The ones with Korean gochujang sauce. Get!

Nancy Knop

Food was great and staff were fantastic. Good selection of beers and cocktails. We stopped here after the aquatenial fireworks (a very busy night) and all of the staff were so pleasant and attentive. It was a wonderful night...great atmosphere. Will definately be back.

Scott Christenson

Mediocre food, good beer selection, friendly staff. Great place to watch a game.

Daniel Slagle

Good variaty of food but a tad pricey.

Jeff Hutchinson

The food was very good, the service was awesome. I will definitely be going back.

Peter Ruohoniemi

Great for a big gathering but food is meh.

Andrew Schmidt

I go during Trivia Nights. The food is top notch, and they have an impressive tap list. Trivia Nights are a lot of fun in part due to the lively host.

Atalia Rickard

Used a groupon, had great food! I recommend the beer cheese soup

jeremiah speed

Fancy prices but bar bar food microwave quality

Millie Parkin

Bouncer out back can be a bit intense on game days but the rest of the servers were great and the juicy Lucy was amazing!

Sherrie Ogren

Good food great service

Ben Parrish

Large beer selection. Food is delicious too!

roxane Why

Kelsey Gavin

Food was quick and excellent. Service was attentive and friendly. Would come back when I'm in the area again.

Wyatt Atchison

Food was decent and staff was alright but nothing to write home about

Matt Johnson

Fast service great food and fair price

Brian Topps

Very nice, extensive beer selection. Lots of local beers. Had a "Lucy" for the first time ever. AMAZING. So tasty, glad I didn't burn my tongue. Bathroom was cold as the arctic. Very friendly and accommodating wait staff.

Eric Fischer

My wife brought a mushroom blue burger home for me as I couldn't make the dinner with friends. The burger was huge and was very good. They also have one of the best happy hour in the area.

R Levett

Great beer selection on tap, excellent salmon salad. Fun trivia night

Jonathan Arjes

Always great flatbread and beer here! Two story building with HUGE screens which is great for sports games. Staff is quick and friendly. They’ve got great appetizers too! Try the Totchoes!

Garrett Ewers

Always focused on customer service and food is solid

Tory Dean

Our server forgot to put in our appetizer (queso) and lied about why it took so long. 30 minutes later when the queso finally got to the table it was cold! 5 minutes after that our burgers arrived (The burgers were delicious btw). When I asked the manager "does queso take 30 minutes to make?" She couldn't even answer me with a straight face. I can't even blame the server for her lack of competence if the management is any better. Although the entrees were good; if I'm going to spend $70+ on a meal I'm going to somewhere with competent servers and a kitchen with better ticket times.

mark peterson

Decent food, good beer selection.

Cathy Zheng

Just moved to the neighborhood and visited here for the first time last night. Everything came out fresh and hot. The Juicy Lucy was amazing!

Mike Stephens

Great burgers but a little pricey.

ryan bauer

All the food is fantastic especially the walleye sandwich and all the Juicy Lucy's!
