Res Stag in the Summer
To beat the head the family headed to Red Stag for dinner. The food was fantastic and the chefs were able to accommodate someone with food sensitivities. I had the olive oil poached salmon and it was amazing! Husband had a burger - delicious. Beyond the food, the staff was friendly as well as accepting to a three year old's needs.

small plates are a delicious route
I dined with a friend on Sunday night. We were really looking forward to mussels but they were out. We shared small plates and a delicious salad instead while seated outside. The kale was magnificent. On Wednesday we returned with 5 additional friends to enjoy another meal. I was really looking forward to more kale. Wednesday we ordered the mussels which were delicious and 3 orders of kale for the table to share. Sadly on Wednesday the kale was a bit too salty. Alas, there's always something good to eat.

Four courses of fabulousness.
The salad looked like many green salads of mixed greens and goat cheese. But rather than a vinigrette, there was a paste or reduction of apricot that came up onto each forkful. Fab.
The rabbit risotto was plate-licking beautiful.
My beef was perfect at medium rare. I liked but did not love the pretty baby turnips.
Coconut tre-leche cake? Shut up! The piece of cake was a reasonable size but so darn good I would have preferred an unreasonably large piece.

Three of us, we all ordered something different and all loved our dinners. The crushed red potatoes were so good I considered skipping dessert and having an extra helping of them, but opted for the pot de creme, with no regrets. ;-) It and the shortbread cookie it came with were delicious too. Our waitress, I wish I remembered her name, was awesome.

Terrific Service, great food
We tried Reg Stag for the second time for a special occasion and it didn't disappoint. Excellent locally produced food, in interesting combinations. Delightful and attentive wait staff.

Nice to see smaller portion sizes and higher quality food.

A Great Overall Experience
While celebrating my sister's bachelorette party, I had an awesome experience with incredible service, great food, and comfortable atmosphere. I would recommend Red Stag to anyone and would definitely come back myself!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must see!
Red Stag is one of our go-to places in Mpls. The food is always excellent and the atmosphere is fun. Service is very good, my only complaint was they let me know of a last minute substitution 1 minute before my prepare dish was brought out-good thing I like squash! And bonus! This place is LEED silver certified!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noisy but fun
We did go on a Saturday night so that might explain the high noise level but considering all things we definitely would go back. The food was fabulous- such an interesting mix of flavors. The service was very nice and we could have a conversation albeit we spoke louder than normal.
We definitely will return but maybe on a week night. It looked like a lot of groups were celebrating special occasions with great cake. I think it is their speciality.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great, service good, nice drink menu, fun atmosphere, a bit loud but not terrible.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food w/ Local Organic Goods
The food was FABULOUS! Lobster Mac & Cheese, Mushroom Rosotto, Date Night for Two... Could not have had a better selection! The food was fresh and abundent in flavor. Will be visiting again when the weather cools down and I can dine outside with my dog! BONUS!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistent and still special
This time I tried the lobster egg salad which was fantastic.
They also have great cocktails - from amazing bloody marys to a perfect gin and tonic.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for sustainable table
Enjoyed everything we ordered including kale salads (easily could have split for two), the scallop special and hen-in-the-woods mushrooms were excellent. We sought out this restaurant for the local food in its menu offerings. Dining at Red Stag worked out well for a pre-Guthrie theatre dinner. Noticed very nice selection and variety of wines on the wine list.

Stag a Licious
We thought the food was excellent and the wait staff was attentive. The menu wasn't laid out very well and I would say not a lot to offer for kids.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We tried the Red Stag after research to find a new place for dinner. We wanted great food/wine and a local feel. THis place hits all the marks. WE will be back for sure. It was a great respite from the suburbs!!S
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Red Stag feels like a seriously upgraded Wisconsin supper club. The bar is beautiful and is reminiscent of Midwestern country bar with a heavy dose of sophistication. The cheese curds, hen of the woods and Limousin burger were excellent.

I came here with my parents to celebrate their 27th wedding anniversary. My dad was delighted that it was Friday fish fry, he got the walleye, Mom got the cod. Both were extremely happy with their choice and said it was even better than Anchor (albeit more expensive). I had the pork chop with sweet and sour plum sauce. The pork chop was pretty good, however I am no pork chop aficionado nor a picky pork chop eater. However, the bed of seasonal veggies it came was out of this world. I know they're just veggies. Pretty standard beans, squash, carrots, etc. But whatever they did to them made me want more. Forever. Additionally they had a good beer selection with several rotating taps. Overall we were very satisfied!

Another nice time at Red Stagg
Always great food specials and is consistently good. Service this time was great!
Very open so a bit noisy but a fun atmosphere. Small groups seemed to be having fun.
Good happy hour.

Always a good experience
I've dined many times at Red Stag and have never had a bad experience. The staff are always attentive, the food is very tasty, the service is always timely, and they've never complained if we sit at the table to chat for a while after finishing eating. For business lunches, for a date, or for just going out with friends, this place is always a good choice.

Everything was great, except
Everything was great, except after a long debate about which drink to get I decided on one that they haven't had the ingredients for since at least the day my waitress had started. It would be nice if they would update their menu for any items they will be out of stock for a long term time period.

Not a Bad Bite in Sight
We made a last minute reservation for 6 people and sat at really cool table just under some unique and decorative chandeliers. The restaurant has an exposed beam ceiling and really has a modern hunters' lodge kind of feel.
The staff are attentive. helpful and courteous. They serve and clear food in a way that doesn't interrupt the conversation and willingly participated when we tried to include them
As for the food, our party ate the following and literally loved every.single.minute.
-Sea Bass - melted like butter in your mouth
- Duck - just the right kind of gamey and deliciously rich
- Risotto - perfection, just absolute perfection
- Lobster Mac & Cheese - nothing left on the plate, it's just that delicious

GREAT FOOD, SERVICE COULD BE BETTER
We had a nice meal, but server didn't make eye contact so we could pay. We had to track her down!

A Little Bit of Everything
Had such a great night at the Red Stag with my girlfriend this past weekend. Very friendly and courteous staff, great food, and warm atmosphere. A great place for a date or late-night drink. I highly recommend.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Tuesday date night. Portions are not huge but just right if you order an appetizer as well. The food is consistently very good.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
environmentally conscious treat!
I love the Red Stag's attention to the environment in all aspects of their business - LEED certified building, sustainable and local food, decor and design focused on federally endangered species, etc. The food was quite tasty and artfully arranged! The portions were small for the price, however, and several of our party remained hungry after the meal. We had a group of 8 people and unfortunately, the combination of the large table (a smaller table would have been better) and the noise level made it impossible to hear the folks on the opposite side of the table. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Yummy cocktails! Make certain to look at the photographs of endangered species near the entry. Overall very good experience!

red stag review
wait staff was good but the bar staff was excellent.. the food was mostly good and the dessert was just adequate /ok for most and I was unimpressed with mine all together .. it was a little loud but it was a Friday night and so there is nothing one can complain about there..
i had noted on my reservation that we were there for a birthday and no mention was made by wait staff.. maybe dessert for the bday boy (in a group of 10) should have been complimentary i feel.

I recently visited the Red Stag Supper club on a Saturday, for lunch with my sisters. The food was very good. The brunch options offered some nice options, and the food arrived hot and to order. Parking can be a challenge, but that wouldn't keep me from returning.

We were a table of 6 and initially were at a table that was too large. They were willing to move us to a better table when it bece available. We were all happy with our food. The sea bass was especially outstanding.

We visited the Red Stag for resatuarant week and found the food to be amazing. So much that K made a reservation for the next night! I highly recommend the Red Stag if you want great cuisine and nice wines. It was nice to see so many others also enjoying the restuarant on a Tuesday evening. The wait staff was efficient, friendly and made good recommendations. Overall a 4-5 star evening. Thanks Red Stag for making Girls Night Out one to remember.

Great Restaurant Week Experience
We had the Restaurant Week fixed price menu so can't comment on their regular menus The presentation was creative and the quality was outstanding, albeit smaller portions for the fixed price. Great wine list including a dozen selections under $25. The ambiance / decor is dark wood, low-light, moderate noise level - very comfortable for any occasion . Service is outstanding. We plan to visit again and try their regular menu.

Great experience with a newborn
Starting with the bus boy's friendly offer of a choice of still or charged water, the service goes up from their. We always have a great time. This time took a newborn and the sound level was perfect to both allow him to sleep, but also drown out his occasional crying. There is plent of room around the table for a stoller without obstructing traffic.

My mom and I were visiting Minneapolis for a weekend and looking for a unique dining experience with a menu featuring locally grown/raised food. The Red Stag Supper Club fit the bill perfectly. The ambience is super cool, an almost lodge like atmosphere with the essence of an early 1900's speakeasy. The food exceeded our expectations, and we were happy with the local ingredients featured. Good mixed drinks as well. I would definitely recommend this great restaurant.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good service and great food, exactly as I've come to expect from Red Stag! Waiter was appropriately attentive even though he was clearly busy in a packed restaurant. Food was, as always, flavorful and well prepared, and an interesting cocktail list. While it was relatively noisy we didn't feel like we were shouting at one another. "Neighborhood Gem" is an accurate and deserved term!

We went on my mother's 84 birthday, and couldn't have been more pleased. It's exactly what I've come to expect from all of Kim Bartmann's restaurants.

Not your father's supper club
Great food and service. A little loud, but from conversations, not some annoying throbbing non-music. Recommended.

new anniversary tradition
My boyfriend and I have been wanting to go to the Red Stag for awhile. We live in (and love) NE, but given the prices, Red Stag was going to have to wait for a special occasion. We celebrated our first anniversary there, and it will definitely be a yearly tradition going forward. The quality of the food put the prices in perspective, the service was phenomenal, and the restaurant itself is lovely.

Great Brunch Spot
While I enjoy the Red Stag Supper Club for evening meals it is also a fun spot for Brunch on week-ends. Great food. Parking is still available but not where it was before.

The Red Stag has such a cool vibe and the bar is great. The cheese curds are even better than the State Fair!

Great Date Night
My wife and I were drawn to the 'Cheap Date' deal they have on Tuesday nights. We ended up ordering something different because of my wife's allergies, but the food we ordered was amazing. My wife ordered the Organic Chicken and it was the best piece of chicken that either of us have ever had.
I ordered their burger, which was also very good.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have not been here since they opened about 5+ years ago. Love the atmosphere. Specialty drinks were OK. Mussels were very good. Beef Stroganoff was excellent and not what you think when reading the dish. Very nicely done. Large Filet was very flavorful and done to my liking. The Hen of the Woods Mushrooms as a side order were excellent. Wish these shrooms were available year round. I will not wait five years again before coming back. Only questionable was the service. Was a tad inpersonal and a little impatient.

"Cheap Date Night" Is Awesome
My wife and I come to the Red Stag at least once a month for their "Cheap Date Night" on Tuesday evenings. They offer a choice of two entrees, a bottle of wine and dessert for $32.
This week they served a Shepherd's Pie that was so delicious I can't stop thinking about it. I am normally not into it, but they created a dish that was so delicious I couldn't stop talking about it.
Their portions always seem just about right. I love the variety and the service. We've never had a bad experience at this place. It's one of our favorites.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice evening out
We weren't sure what to expect but they had a lot of locally sourced items on the menu and the portion sizes & price were perfect. Everything we prepared perfectly. We plan to go back again.

Friday Night Fish Fry
if it's a Friday night it must be time for a fish fry I was born and raised in Wisconsin. Friday night fish fries are an institution over there. It's nice to find a great place right here in Minneapolis that is just as good as anything I've been to in Wisconsin. We always make it a point to go to the Red Stag when the fish fry bug gets us. Great bluegills, cod and of course walleye. The chips are the BEST. And the cold slaw is perfect. And my wife sez they definitely know how to make an Old Fashioned the old fashioned way - none of that fancy-schmansy mixologist yuk. Just excellent food and excellent drinks.
