Kierans was extremely busy when we got there after the football game, but they had our reservation and we were seated immediately. The waitress was first class in all aspects even though she had been on duty for 7 hours we found out. The food was excellent and delivered in a very reasonable period of time. The food and drinks were a great value for downtown Minneapolis.

I brought out-of-town family members to Kierans for dinner prior to a Twin's game. They reserved a table for us that had a scenic view of the outdoor patio. The atmosphere was fun and lively with many fellow Twin's fans in attendance. While the restaurant was crowded, service was great and the food amazing. Everyone loved their entree (i.e. tater tots that were the best ever, tomato soup, berries and brie salad, walleye sandwich, mac&cheese). We appreciated that the happy hour extended until 6 pm. I have another out-of-town guest that I will be bringing here even though we will not be attending an event within downtown afterwards. Keep up the good work!

My small group was able to be put up in The Snug and it turned out to be perfect for our family/friends group. Our server(s) were great, our host/waitress was great. ( I wish I remembered her name. ) We had a very nice time and were taken care of in an organized fashion even though we had a group of 15 snugged into the room. thanks so much.

We had a fabulous brunch/breakfast on Sunday! Great food, good service and good atmosphere! It was quiet enough for easy conversation at a table for six. The restaurant wasn’t very busy and I suppose if it were it could be loud/ but our experience was great.

Amazing food, incredible ambiance, and the staff was super friendly and flexible. We went on a night they had a live soul/funk band and they were great, the crowd was really chill, and the meal was fantastic! Definitely would recommend!

The service and the food are superior. The tater tots were amazing. My fish and chips were so flavorful and perfectly seasoned. Lisa our server was incredible. Great sense of humor and impressed me with her knowledge of the bar and menu options. Gave me suggestions on drink options based on my usual vodka based choice. Always a smile on her face with each guest. Love this place!

I had reservations for Easter. The day before they called and said they were going to shut down Easter Day! I had to scramble to make last minute plans for 8 for Easter!

Had a reservation for Easter brunch that we made two weeks before, and they called me the afternoon before our reservation to tell me they were closed.

Needless to say it was too late to get in anywhere else. Kieran’s and Open table fail.

Good food. A little loud because of the High School Basketball Tourney going on
and it is... well...a bar. Server got us in and out quick and was always coming around and seeing how we were doing.
The only issue I had was they marked me down as a cancelled reservation so, I suspect, they wouldn't have to pay Opentable. I called the restaraunt and they said they made a mistake but did not fix it. A quick email to Opentable fixed that.

If this was the first time at kierans I would definitely not recommend it to anyone. Server was very rude to my wife as she waited for me to arrive from work. When we said we wanted the check he pretty much jabbed it into my wife's elbow. We were regulars ar kierans for the timberwolves games but the season is coming to an end for both the wolves and us taking the time to go to kierans.

A good place for a meal before a show. Decent vegetarian dishes, actually better than I was expecting. Good Veggie burgers and surprisingly child friendly.

It was very nice. Noise level has allow score because they where so busy with the Elton John concert. It made it very difficult to hear other's at my table since we where sat right at the front door.
Food was very good.

The atmosphere is wonderful. I had the walleye sandwich and it was very good. They have a different style of french fry and is cooked very well and I liked them. I would definitely go back again to eat and drink. All of the workers that I encountered were friendly.

The server who helped me was amazing! I give her a 5! The beer selection was great & tasty. I didn’t care for the Cheese Curd Poutine. Was pretty rich & heavy. I’ve had original Canadian style poutine & loved it. Definitely want to try other things off the menu.

The reason why I didn’t give them a 4, well I game prior to the Tim/Spurs game. Service was great. Than I arrived after game! I of course was carded on entry, took them forever! No one was at the front. So not sure why they took forever, than I was carded again by the bartender. This really caught me off card, and was unsettling. The Bartender took forever to look at my DL, and seemed like he was in disbelief. For one it’s embarrassing & sad to me I was carded once at the door than by the bartender. Please get your system in check!!!

Went there because the website said they had weekend brunch. When we showed up the server told us there is no brunch because it was too labor intensive and they didn’t draw a crowd for it. Didn’t really make sense why they would advertise it online and on the outside of the building. Then she brought out a different menu with “brunch options” it was four items. Wouldn’t go again and can’t recommend to anybody. Real disappointment.
