Dinner here before a concert at Cowles Center. Food and convenience was excellent. However the noise level on a busy Friday night made conversation impossible. We tried the front bar area and the back room, which was better but still very noisy.

I was expecting authentic German dumplings and authentic spatzle noodles😟
Also German salad - marinated cucumbers, beets and asparagus. Sautéed veggies average.
Gulashsuppe needed more broth - it was like stew.
The beer and stroganoff and German chocolate cake were excellent.

We were underwhelmed by the Walleye sandwich, grilled. I’ve had it fried and decided to get the grilled and it was not even seasoned! Love the sliders. Fried pickles were great but not a fan of the sauce it was served with. I like this place and Connie is awesome!!!

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,

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!
