Gluek's Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
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!
Awesome food, great service and close to Target Field. It was nice to make on-line reservations and the table was already when our group of 13 arrived. We were able to order, eat and make it to the Twins game on time. Thank you for being a part of a fun evening with friends.
Glueks used to have great big beer mugs, 25 oz. mugs (Babooshkas). That was really cool and that is what we came back for. Granted that was a long time ago, but the piece of crap tiny little mugs they serve their beer in now...well, it's not worth going out of your way to go here anymore. Everything changes....and usually for the worse!
The food was fine but very simple. For a German themed restaurant there wasn't really anything on the menu that reflected that. My wife had the stroganoff with two wafer thin slices of bread a vegetable side or salad would have been great. I had the sausage party plate which was good and for that type of entrée an offering of bread would have been good but wasn't available....I asked but was told doesn't come with the meal.
