An upscale eatery. They have a good variety of southern and barbecue dishes of beef, seafood, chicken and pork. Location is great — right on Mears Park in downtown St. Paul. The service was very good and attentive. Attractive bar and interior.

We've had an awesome night out in Mears made really special by having dinner al fresco whilst listening to Music in Mears. Bryan served up a superb selection of tasty dishes which kept every one happy. Well worth a visit if you're in town.

I've always found it best to contact restaurant directly and have them answer any food allergies or sensitivities. I know for a FACT the bourbon is gluten free!
