A word from Lyndale Tap House
The Tap House specializes in Baltimore Style Pit Meat. This preparation involves rubbing a high-quality piece of meat with a special housemade spice mixture and allowing it to marinate for three days. The meat is then seared on a specially installed pit grill which chars the outside and cooks it
juicy and tender on the inside. Finally it is sliced paper thin and served on a kaiser roll. A variety of meats are pit grilled in this fashion and served according to your desires. Popular choices include the Pit Beef served with raw onions and homemade horseradish sauce or the Pit Pork served with buttermilk coleslaw and sweet habanero barbecue sauce. Additionally, a diner can choose from a menu including gourmet hamburgers, home baked pretzels, ale steamed mussels, shells & cheese and a full selection of desserts. Vegetarian options are available and our staff would be happy to accommodate dietary needs.

Great food with fast, friendly
service. It can be scary to try new places, especially when you're going for a special occasion! We were both glad to have tried Lyndale Tap House. The food was amazing. The server made excellent recommendations on what to try. I don't venture into Uptown often but when I do again, I'll definitely be heading back to Lyndale Tap House!"

Food was good and the service was
outstanding. Great place to meet with people and catch up. Good beer selection with many local varieties."

Typically this is a very good
restaurant but I think they forgot the sauces this time. Not much flavor in all 3 sandwiches. I would go back however as this was an oddity."

Very loud. Appetizer was cold from
kitchen. Waitress never smiled or followed up with us. Disappointing for dinner. Previous experience for late lunch on a Saturday was great."

Food was very well prepared. The
French fries were exceptionally good and they did not overload your plate with them. Would go back for the food but quite noisy."

WE had a great time with awesome
food and great service. We had a toddler with us and still had a good time!"

The menu at Lyndale looks very
promising. Our group of 4 had a hard time choosing what to order. The pit burgers are a major draw. My dad and I both ordered the Pit Pork sandwich. I like moderate spice, while my dad can handle very spicy foods. We both were unpleasantly surprised, though, at how spicy this was given the description of a "sweet" habanero sauce with buttermilk colesaw (which you'd think would tame the heat). Neither of us were expecting/wanted so much heat based on the description. The other 2 in our group enjoyed their meal. The fries are very good. Our service started well, and became slower and slower."

Our food was great, even though
the server asked me to change my order (they ran out of chicken salad) right as my friends' entrees were being delivered, which was awkward. Our server wasn't very strong - we had to flag her down several times (to order more drinks, to ask for our checks) and whenever she would stop by on her own, it was confusing. For example, she asked “Do you want to order another round of drinks before happy hour ends?” we looked at each other to see who wanted to and before we could answer her, she walked away! Then she came back with our checks – um, okay. One of my friends asked me, “Didn't you guys want to order more drinks?” and we told the server yes. She was confused and we were confused. It was very strange."

The food was good but a bit
overpriced for what you got. I ordered the fish and chips with fries. An abundance of fries, but only two small pieces of fish and a tiny, tiny portion of slaw. At the Longfellow Grill in Minneapolis for the same price there would be more fish, fewer fries and/or lots of delicious slaw."

What a good time! The food was
delicious, the beer was awesome, and the service was great. Two-for-one beer, too, when I went!"

This is our go to Sunday brunch
place. We love coming here with friends and even bring our infant with us. Love the food and free mimosa with breakfast!"
Dined on 9/1/2013
The Happy Hour provides very good
value for money on both food and drinks. The pulled pork and beef are excellent! They have a good selection of quality locally brewed ales. Our waitress was very pleasant and gave knowledgable background on the beers. Great venue if you plan on enjoying a show at Jungle Theater -- another Minneapolis gem!"

The atmosphere made it easy to
visit. Not too loud, casual and fun. Good beer and the food was excellent! Will definitely stop again."

Bars have the best brunch!! The
lyndale tap was great, get the sausage it was fabulous! Plus, a free mimosa kn a high ball was a nice surprise."

The beet salad was phenomenal and
the pit sandwiches were delicious and very well flavored! Happy Hour was amazing! Fries were a bit soggy but sandwich and salad made up for that!"

Great pit beef or pork sandwiches
- and fantastic service!"
Dined on 7/19/2013
Food was mediocre, ordered salad
and sandwich the salad came out 2-3 min after the sandwich. Bartender was not very friendly although the fact that he was extremely busy and the only person behind the bar could attribute to his attitude. HH drink specials were decent. Go for drinks, skip the grub."

The Chef who wrote this menu
really knows how to put flavors together in new combinations that will have your taste buds singing. The meat was juicy on the sandwiches and the salads were fresh. We had a great time and would highly recommend this place to people who love food, beer and are okay with a loud bar atmosphere."

We make the stop here before a
show at the Jungle Theatre, and it was a perfect choice. Awesome pit beef, great cocktails, and we were in and out in record time."
Dined on 7/7/2013
We took advantage of the happy
hour specials, but stayed for dinner before heading to the Jungle. A fun spot for a two-generation group."

Interesting selection of burgers,
pit beef and pork (and other sandwiches), salads, and some main courses. My Lyn-Lake burger (burgers, fried egg, greens, parmesan sauce, smoked bacon, and more) was properly cooked and very tasty. Everything coming from the open kitchen in the back of the restaurant appeared to be very adequate and nice prepared."
Dined on 6/16/2013
GREAT service. Our waiter was
wonderful and made the experience memorable. Best fries ever and Pit sandwich was good. We would eat there again."
Dined on 4/23/2013
"Fancy" brand ketchup. Overdone
fries. Seems like lots of people there for 2 4 1 beer.....food, not so much. We won't be going back."
Dined on 4/19/2013
Daily Happy Hour 4 - 7 is good
deal for drinks and starters. This place is very loud...hard to carry on a conversation across the table. My pit beef sandwich was on the dry side. The fries were great, hand cut and fried to deep golden. Bottom line, this place is OK but not a stand out in my eyes."
