We have been there twice now, I have had the fish and chips and the beef stroganoff which was very good, I can say one of the best I have ever had. We were eating there before a Target Center concert so a quick walk across the street - very convenient.
Will be back !

Even with having reservations we were seated in the bar instead of the dinner area,
I was kind of disappointed in the seating, because the dining room looked to have open tables,

Had reservation for noon. Arrived at 11:45 to a locked door. Website says open at 11:00. They don't open until noon. Other than the time, we had great service and wonderful food and would recommend it highly to friends and family.

Stopped here before attending a performance at the Cowles and had a wonderful time! The food was delicious, our server jovial, and the atmosphere relaxed. I tried schweineschnitzel spaetzle with a side of German potato salad - both were fantastic. I'll be coming back to sample more of the menu.

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.

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.

I loved everything about this place but the noise level. We went with friends and all 4 of our meals were very, very good (sliders, chicken bbq sandwich, veal w/spaetzle) and despite being very busy the service was excellent. However, it was somewhat difficult to converse. That said, it was very convenient to the Target Center, where we were headed for a concert. I would definitely go back - especially if eating right before something at the Target Center!

Lunchtime Team Retirement Celebration - food was great, staff very responsive, warm ambiance. Love the steak & mushroom salad! So many restaurants/bars have TVs and/or loud music - at Gluek's, we can always hear each well and have good conversation. Well worth planning our celebration at Gluek's!
