Republic - Seven Corners
Republic is an award winning, locally-owned and independent craft beer bar located in the heart of the West Bank neighborhood in Minneapolis, just minutes from downtown. We have 100+ tap lines dedicated to craft beers & ciders from the finest makers in the state, country and world. Our scratch kitchen specializes in top-notch contemporary gastropub fare for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. We have a private dining room that accommodates up to 75 people with AV capabilities, stage, sound, lights and large group menus to choose from.
Our New year get together was very nice. The attention to our small party was exceptionally good.
Great food and service. If you haven't been there yet, give it a try.
Drinks and beer list were good, food was very mediocre. Decent ambiance.
Both the fish and shrimp tacos we're wonderful, as was the homemade ketchup and aoli for the fries.
Had a reservation, however there was some confusion regarding that and we waited 10 minutes while they found us a table.
Great bar-restaurant in West Bank area of U of Minnesota campus. Outdoor dining in good weather very nice; trees provide nice shade in the outdoor dining area for summer dining.
Love this place. The mock duck tacos were amazing!
Loved it. Sat outside on a sunny day and had a lovely time.
It took 2 reminders and 15 minutes to get our drinks. The food was good overall but the fries were a little limp. Management needs to tighten up on the details.
The outdoor patio is why I go.
Food is always ok. Considering we had a large group, the food came out very quickly. Our server was the best we ever had anywhere; very attentive, yet not pushy; he earned a large tip!
Great food and service. They have an excellent selection of ciders - great for the non-beer drinkers out there.
A pleasant Sunday brunch at Republic before a theater performance in the area
It use to be a quality place now i wont go back again
A friend from out of state met me here near her hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed the several hours we spent dining, drinking and catching up. Our waiter instinctively knew when we were ready for another drink or another food order. Weather was gorgeous so sitting outside was ideal.
Good food with wonderful beer choices! Charming English/Irish bar with ample outdoor seating. Service was great. We'll be back.
The spacious patio at Republic is perfect (minus the occasional thunderous rumbling of passing Harleys) for catching up with friends on a summer evening. I wish the service had matched the weather. While the servers were friendly, we had to find someone to take our order, initiate getting refills, etc. Additionally, two items didn't come out correctly--a burger that had been requested minus the bacon had bacon, and one of the desserts that was described as topped with strawberries had none (with the person bringing it out telling us their strawberries weren't fresh/good enough and he wished staff would quit telling people it comes with strawberries). Mostly the consistently slow service is what has me on the fence about returning, even though the food was mostly tasty.
A wonderful al fresco Sunday dinner! Great beer selection. Had a very good Cubano sandwich.
Great Mother’s Day brunch.
Great beer selection, food was good.
We left without getting any dinner... We arrived at 5:45, ordered, and by 7:15, our food hadn't arrived. Apparently it got delivered to the wrong table... Twice. I've never left a restaurant without getting food. They comped our drinks, even though we didn't even get all of them. Go somewhere else!
My wife and I dined here before a concert at the Cedar Cultural Center. The food (we both had the veggie burger) was outstanding and the atmosphere was great. This is a high energy place that would be great for a date or a large group. We will be back!
Hostess seemed overwhelmed, and we waited about 15 minutes past our reservation time to be sat. We were a table of two but were sat on a stage in a loud area clearly intended for large groups + overflow dining. Our server was trying, but was busy serving the several large groups. Both our meals were disappointing: An overcooked burger and a very small portion on the chicken sandwich. The beer selection was the only redeeming element of this dinner.
A very disappointing evening at The Republic! The restaurant need some updating ~ the chairs are wobbly and the tables feel like they need a good scrubbing down too. The wait staff is very slow and our party of 8 had dinners come out several minutes apart. Some people were almost done with their entire meal before others were served. In addition, the quality of the food was what I would refer to as 'bad bar food ' that is over priced! So disappointing ~ we would say save your money and find somewhere else to eat!
We didn't have much time before our show at Theater in the Round, but we got a reservation on Open Table easily and our food arrived quickly. The food was all great and our server super friendly and attentive. Perfect.
Theater night out with the girls
great beer selection and i love that they allow you to choose ANY 4 beers for a flight. So many places have a "hoppy flight," "local flight," "dark flight" . the Republic let's you build your own... and they have a great selection to choose from. Great tacos (good for vegetarians too) and an excellent BLT(with egg).
Beer selection was fantastic. My chicken sandwich was great. However, the burgers the ladies ordered were all mixed up based on medium / medium-well. The server had to be asked twice for water, never refilled them once, and then I asked for a half-glass of water at the time of the check that was never filled. My wife over-tipped and we still got ignored by the server as we left. I've been a server / bartender and so I'm pretty laid back about it, but this was poor. Still a great place, but poor service doesn't exactly cause a person to rush back.
A go-to casual spot. Great food, lots of options no matter your dietary preferences. Great beer list.
Because we had hard of hearing seniors with us, we asked for quieter seating and it was perfect!
We love this place! Great beer- many options! Great food, great location, ambiance and great service!!
Being a vege/pescatarian, it was a welcome surprise to have a few food options at a beer place. The seating was cramped (the person sitting behind me and I were fighting for space), but the service was friendly and fast. Its close to the Southern Theater, so its a good option pre-show. The seats fill fast; good thing reservations are easy.
Great service, unique menu and very good service. I will recommend to friends for casual occasions.
Restaurant was ready for us, but we were placed in a giant room alone which had no ambiance or vibe. Not sure why when there were many other tables available. We contemplated sitting at the bar, and should have. The bar is really the focus of this place. Food is just OK.
The food was so good, we went back the next day. Conviently located in the seven corners area
Nice night with friends - good food and drinks in a pleasant spot.
Not impressed. Good location for Theatre in the Round. Good beer selections. No other reason to go. We ordered appetizer, never came. No real apology for it. Waiter never checked with us. Won't be back and don't recommend.
First time I had been here. Enjoyed the decor. The stained glass was really cool. The food was good but even on a Monday, it was hard to hear others in our group conversation.
Four friends gather for supper before a show at Theater in the Round. That's the perfect setting for fun and enjoyment. That is what we got with Republic. They were having great happy hour specials, both food and drink, that we took advantage of. Everything was delicious and the drinks were not watered down. Our server was very helpful and made great recommendations. We would definitely return. The only downside was getting our car towed from the lot across the street because we put the ticket upside down. A very expensive ($135) lesson in pay parking lot etiquette. Just handle the parking correctly and you will have a great time at Republic.
Great experience. They accommodated our large reservation (11 people) and then were not annoyed when 3 people bailed last minute (even if we were annoyed at our friends..). Food and drinks were great and the service was good too. We had kids and they were all happy. Overall great experience.
