I was shopping at the Duluth Trading Company and spotted this bar on the opposite side of the road. It was a great choice! I was able to enjoy some really good "local" beers. Also got to enjoy some NHL playoff action as well. It has a rather small seating area but I must have hit it at a pretty... More

Only thing bad about this place is is too small, usually a line of people waiting to get in. The hamburger buns are my fave, they melt in your mouth. Probably my #1 choice in a burger.

Staff were very friendly, send a post card to a best friend, grandchild, or co worker at, or anyone you wish at their expense. Just a fun place. Like craft beer! You get a nice variety to choose from.

Nice place. Lots of burger options. Too salty for my taste. Good burger if you don't mind heavy seasoning.

Best. Burger. Ever. Try the chips with sea salt and the Phillips Ave Burger. Homemade burgers, chips and fries cut and fried in front of your eyes, and dips to die for!

I loved this place! I was visiting Sioux Falls and went there based on a recommendation of a local resident. Great burgers, simple, not snooty, great value. Large selection of beers. Had an old favorite that I hadn't had since college but they had a great selection of newer craft beers too. This place is kinda of like the old... More

Food was really good, but place was very small. It is a bar so no minors. Homemade chips were super good.

Had a great little dinner here on a Friday night... I was by myself and found a spot at the bar but it was packed. Tons of burger options (make sure to add an egg for $1) and I loved all the dipping sauces/seasonings for the fries. A TON of craft beer options... including local SD/MN beers which I hadn't...
