Folksy, welcoming and busy Kieran's is a great place to have a beer or eat a meal or both.It is a bit crowded at peak hours, but good places are. Been here in winter and in summer. Outside dining is possible in the summer and I recommend it. Lots of local beers plus traditional Irish and American brews. Food and... More

Many traditional Irish dishes on the menu. My husband got the cornbeef and cabbage but I had to go with the fish and chips. VERY good food! Good atmosphere. Definitely recommend this place!

Stopped here for a late late dinner at 11:00 pm after the Badger basketball game. There was live Irish music which was amazing. We had the bacon tots! OMG! You must order them! I had the tomato basal soup and grilled cheese that was also amazing! Loved everything about this place! Would definitely go again!

Kieran's was one of my favorite places for dinner before a Timberwolves game, especially for their walleye sandwich. After last night, I'll find another place. There was nothing wrong with the sandwich, it was just not good. The bread roll that the walleye was on was thick and chewy, then they put coleslaw on top of the a thin fried... More

We hosted a rehearsal dinner here. The food was okay, but very expensive in our opinion. We also thought there would be more attentiveness from the management since we were footing the bill for lots of people. The experience was a little disappointing for what we paid.

We recently were in Minneapolis and stopped in for a drink on a Saturday night. The place was hopping, with a live band. Although it was crowded, the service was great. On the Sunday, after the football game, we figured we would stop for supper. Great service, and the food was awesome. They gave you so much, I couldn't even... More

Kieran's offers a good variety of your Irish mainstays. They have indoor and outdoor seating along with the ability to host large groups. The actual bar is old school and actually from Ireland. Their chicken shots and pub pretzels are a must when ordering appetizers, you can skip the artichoke dip. I got the Ruben and founded it to be... More

We stopped here prior to the Viking/Packer game recently. We all felt the staff wasn't all that friendly and the food was only ok. There are so many other choices in the area, that we will likely look at a different option in the future when in the area. The food is reasonably priced though.

Good olde Irish Pub. Fun atmosphere, with an engaging staff. They have fun appetizers, and the menu looked good if one wanted to eat a meal as well. Great place for a snack and drink before or after a Twins Game.
