Split the grilled cheese sandwich and the pork belly BLT with my grandson. Both were great. Also the fries are cooked in beef oil which gives them a wonderful flavor. The bar is gorgeous!

I had a Dutch Baby ($8.00) and my hubby had Biscuits & Gravy ($10.00). The Dutch Baby sounded good, looked good & tasted good. My problem, it was way too sweet with nothing to cut it. I ordered a side of bacon ($5.00) but even...More

This use to be a Speak Easy and part of the Hamm's Brewing co. An interesting place. Food was very good, friendly service but a bit slow!

Ward 6 has a friendly, relaxed vibe. The food is excellent and they have a nice selection of craft beers. Prices are quite reasonable. You can't go wrong here.

Hard working attentive staff is glad to help you try something new. Very good food and great brew selection Nobody looks like they live in the area. It's a one of a kind on the East side. It's worth a trip

Unique food and cocktails. They seriously care about all that they craft. Our server was attentive and caring too. Great find on St Paul's east side.

We really, really wanted to like Ward 66. It is just OK. The atmosphere is interesting and eclectic. The device and food, however, have room for improvement. The idea of supporting a neighborhood pub, off of Payne avenue was very appealing It is nearby to...More

As youngsters, Payne Avenue was an area we were encouraged to avoid. "The Payne Reliever", a strip joint, didn't help this street's reputation. Well, Payne Avenue is on it's way back! And Ward 6 is leading the way. This little gem has some delicious and...More

I've been here for brunch and lunch, and I'd say their brunch far surpasses their lunch. For brunch we had the corned beef and cabbage with a Bloody Mary and the typical eggs with hash browns and sausage. They also have a nice variety of...More

Hi, we don't take reservations for any size, due to our small size. We only have 2 larger tables which are designed for 5-6, but can fit 7-8 if people are willing to be a bit tight. Otherwise you could split up into two... More

They can definitely handle a party of 8. They do not take reservations but I have been there at around 5:00 and had no problems getting a table. I think they start getting busy at 6:00 or 6:30.

Excellent food and drink in a friendly atmosphere. We have 20 taps of Minnesota craft beer, classic and new cocktails, a surprising wine list, made from scratch food with high quality (mostly local) ingredients.
