Worth every dime
Good quality food, though the portions were less than the usual. I had to order twice because I wasn't full the first time and I didn't want to go somewhere else to eat. The prices matched the great great quality of food. I just wish the menu came with more selections/options. The service was great, excellent pick for a romantic night or just to chat with friends. I look forward to going back, and I'd definitely recommend it to a friend. Don't forget that parking isn't free.

The chefs were great. It
The chefs were great. It was crowded at the chef's table and a bit hard to hear, but the food and drinks are worth it.

Great spot! Had read all
Great spot! Had read all of the reviews about the small, expensive drinks, but they were SO good!! We went during happy hour, and ordered some h.h. items, and some that were not. Everything was so good, and we definitely had plenty of food. It was a great change from some of the big downtown spots! Would definitely go back!!

If you like a good cocktail
If you like a good cocktail and not just beer or wine, this is a must try. Drinks are expensive, but unique and well crafted. Food consists of small plates, but also tasty. I would definitely go back!

Great atmosphere and fabulous food
Wonderful place. The low lighting makes for a warm ambiance. Unique, delicious menu options, with perfect individual-sized portions. The drink menu offers great choices. We'll definitely be back.

Got there right at 5:00pm when they opened. Great service and tasty food. Tried many different things. 2 for 1 happy hour specials. Would go there again.

Bradstreet gets high marks
Bradstreet gets high marks in my opinion for being one of very few bars to put as much thought into their non-alcoholic drinks as they do for their cocktails or beer and wine lists. I had the Art of Crafts, a gorgeously spicy and refreshing ginger-jasmine concoction that put half the real cocktails I've ever had to shame. Our server was also able to recommend a cocktail for my less-than-decisive dining partner; very knowledgeable and helpful staff. The food was tasty, but the slider-sized juicy lucy may have been a tad misguided: I'm not sure something stuffed with hot cheese can work at that scale. Speaking of scale, all of their sandwiches are slider-sized, so be prepared to get a couple or share a few small plates.

From the food to the cocktails to the service, everything was excellent. We tried a few different cocktails, and they were literally the best drinks I've ever had. Our server was really helpful in explaining different drinks and recommending certain ones based on what we were looking for. The food comes out in small portions, so it was nice to get a few things and share. All the plates we ordered were delicious! I will definitely be back for more.

Great first time trip
Great food! Great drinks! Awesome service. I knew I had read great things about the Bradstreet but my first visit there definitely exceeded my expectations. Will be making return visits!!

Looking for a place that knows how to make cocktails that don't involve cheap rum or pucker? Head to this place. Menu is medium sized plates. If you are just medium hungry a single plate will do. Otherwise you'll want to get two plates. Good happy hour deal on small sandwiches for $6. Pulled pork sandwich, scallops, and the lobster mac n cheese were all very good. Had the blackwalnut old fashioned which was great.

What a beautiful place! Loved the decor, the highlighted bar, the cozy table. My lobster roll took me back to New England, and the happy hour menu was the perfect amount before a Target Center Event.

Great find at Graves Hotel!
Wonderful small plate options! Amazing food and great happy hour prices! Modern/ contemporary decor.

wonderful food, staff, & location!
A friend and I stopped by Bradstreet Crafthouse prior to attending a concert at the Target Center. Of course the location was perfect for us as it was only across the street. The food was delicious and decently priced. The staff was very friendly. Overall, I think it was a wonderful experience!

Awesome food, fun drinks
Great atmosphere! Went before a concert with girlfriends and we all agreed we'd like to go back! We ordered some fun drinks, a few starters, a sandwich each and split the sides. Had to top it off with two desserts of course! Left feeling full but not stuffed. Great service and it was so fun to sit by the "bar" watching the chefs at work - they were fun and interacted with us too. Great overall experience - would definitely recommend.

Loved the food! We ordered
Loved the food! We ordered a large variety to share with our group. Highly recommend the Lobster Roll, Lobster Mac & Cheese, Caprese sandwich, Mango BBQ Pork Slider, Lamb Slider & the Fries with the Chipotle dipping sauce were awesome!

Although the cocktails take a while they are excellent. Very much a quality craft cocktail bar. But the food, upscale bar food, is creative, interesting and good too. Definitely a good place to meet after work, before a Twins game(maybe skip the game) or just dinner and a few drinks. Really enjoy this place.

The cocktails here are outstanding but don't overlook the food. Went before the Twins game. The BBQ pork sandwich is excellent, the mac and cheese outstanding and most of the sandwiches are good altho the chicken and waffles were a bit too sweet for us. The food is creative bar food that is fun to eat and the cocktails really are quite good.

Dark and Lovely
Great cocktails and delicious food. I had a little trouble finding it since it's inside a hotel but, once I did, I was very happy. I had the scallops and chips with a beer. The menu offers enough choices to please just about anyone. I would definitely go again.

Bradstreet Craftshouse was a great experience. My wife and I tried it before a show at a nearby theater. The atmosphere was intimate and inviting. We sat at the counter in front of the "kitchen" area. The 2 chefs chatted with us and showed us the dishes they were preparing. It was a good show and Great food! Very unique and tasty options. The service from the wait staff was a bit slow. We even made it for Happy Hour which was a great 2 for 1 deal! Please try it!

Friends and I were looking for a quick spot to grab dinner before a show. Despite the slow service (we were 1 of 2 tables in the back lounge area) we were able to eat and finish on time. The bonus of the slow service was the waiter who also mixed cocktails on random nights brought us a small liqueur while we waited, which was nice. The bruschetta was great and all the sandwiches from the 6.01 menu were fantastic. Completely portion appropriate for a group of ladies. Warning: don't ask for a drink substitute, these guys take their craft cocktails beyond seriously :)

Why haven't I been here before?
Arrived at 5:00 p.m. when they open and sat at the bar. The bartender was personable and very knowledgeable. He made me the perfect Sazerac and a drink for my wife that had a tone of ingredients and required a great deal of work to craft (get it? Crafthouse?) It was delicious. We ordered from the happy hour menu where you get 2 for 1 for a few of the sandwiches. Ordered the pulled pork and chicken and waffle. Both were absolutely delicious. Got a side of what had to be perfect fries plus a side of edamame that were slightly overcooked but perfectly salted and spiced. Our evening there was nothing short of spectacular - from the service to the food. Every time we go downtown, this will be on our short list of places to eat & drink.

Great Small Plates and Dessert
We had a great time sharing small plates. Each dish was delicious, and a few bites of each was just perfect. I recommend the chicken and waffles, and the Ahi tuna. Don't skip dessert.

Bradstreet is a gem! Awesome service and quality of food and drink. A truly special place!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Drinks were inventive and fun. We were not a fan of the chicken and waffles, but the scallops and mango BBQ pulled pork was fantastic. Great ambiance!

Large Group for 40th
We had a large group of ladies out for a 40th bday party. The drinks and appetizer foods were amazingly good! The service was fantastic. They were on top of our needs, had great suggestions and never missed an order...with 14 ladies changing spots all the time, that was impressive! We sat at a huge table that fit us all!
