This place is fantastic for everyone. The new owners are putting in some sweat equity to give it a bit of a revamp. The food is well prepared and you will win with any selection you make. Plenty of beers on tap and friendly staff ready to help make your visit enjoyable. Get here often, good vibe and great food!

We had my nieces bridal shower in the back room of Gabe's and they were so accommodating and the brunch was very good. The Bartenders did a great job waiting on all 60 of us. I would highly recommend Gabe's for gatherings like this. We were able to decorate and set up the way that worked for our group and... More

My wife, daughter, grandson and I stopped in after visiting a museum. My wife and I did our usual, Nachos and Walleye Wraps, we split because there is sufficient for both of us from one order. Our daughter had the chili and the grandson had a cheeseburger and fries. The half order of nachos is huge and covered with cheese,... More

We are at Gabes every Packer game, televised or not. It is especially exciting during non-televised game when gabe's satellite coverage packs the bar with fun packer fans.

Five of us recently had lunch at Gabe's. This long-standing St Paul tradition is always fun to visit. Our food was great (especially the Johnny Appleseed Burger), the Bloody Mary's were perfect. The service was a bit slow, but worth the wait.

I ate at Gabe's twice while on my road trip to Minneapolis/Saint Paul. When I didn't want to drive to supper, I could walk to Gabe's from my hotel. Both times I was seated right away and I found the service was very good. I loved the local atmosphere. They have Trivial Pursuit cards, which was a great way to... More

We went to Gabe's because it's nearby, and we wanted to try it out. We won't exactly be hurrying back, which is unfortunate, because it's very close to us. When we entered, there was no one there to seat us, even after a few minutes' wait. The service was poor: we had to get our own utensils, our server forgot... More
