Totally enjoyable dining experience! The grilled bratwurst & german potato salad were delicious. We enjoyed our meal with Not Your Father’s Root Beer. Save room for dessert because the Bavarian Apple Strudel is absolutely worth the 8 minute wait that it takes to prepare this scrumptious dessert. The server was knowledgeable and pleasant! We will definitely return to Gluek’s Restaurant & Bar when visiting Minneapolis.

Great food, great beer, neat ambience. We made reservations online, and good thing we did! It was really busy on a Saturday evening.

There before a Vikings game. Great place to blend with the crowd instead of being consumed by one.

The service was phenomenal and the food excellent. We were running late and once I explained our predicament to Tony the entire staff sprang into action. I have never had service that fast with no sacrifice to food quality. It was amazing! Drinks, food, tickets rang up, doggy boxes all done in record time!

Great schnitzel dishes and sausage. I had hoped there would have been a few more selections from the "old country" to choose from. What we had was wonderful. The table area in the bar was very congested and the sound level was distracting. The place was full and the atmosphere was comfortable if you like being in a large beer hall environment.

Reserved table for pre-TWolves game. Table was ready with my name on placard when I got there. Jessie was our server, and did an outstanding job serving our table despite it being incredibly busy! Food was very good, and wait time very reasonable. Would definitely go back again, as this was my first visit.
