We were warmly greeted by the host and we chose to sit at the bar as we usually prefer. There Brent and Liz both greeted us with a hello and a smile. I had the poke salad and the Brussel sprouts. They were awesome. All evening Liz, Brent and eventually Austin when he arrived were attentive and had a great rapport with everyone at the bar. The food is always great but it is the service we get that brings us back.

While it’s not a knock you out best food you’ll ever have restaurant it is affordable with good drink variety and something on the menu for everyone. Worth checking out if you’ve got time to kill before a movie nearby.

Delicious food.

Recommendation: Not allowing people to smoke on the patio. I know it's outside, but if people want to enjoy the fresh air and nice weather, and people are smoking at the next table, it definitely makes it less appetizing.

As usual we were greeted warmly by our server Brent. Throughout the evening we were helped by Brent, Austin and Derrick. Each did an awesome job. Tried the new Chicken Gyro, it was great.

I went to The Loop with a friend for brunch, we travel all over the cities for brunch and it’s nice that places are popping up outside the downtowns. The ordered the ham and mushroom hash which was fine, nothing amazing but made like I could make at home. We also had the mini cinnamon roll which in my opinion had too much frosting and not enough cinnamon. But the server was great and attentive, the mimosas were delicious and I appreciated a place in St Louis Park as opposed to driving downtown. 4/5 stars.

Wanted to sit outside, but no table available. Inside was too noisy. Ended up sitting in an outdoor lounge area. Food was good.

The food was excellent (Loop burger), the hostess was wonderful, once I got service it was great! The hostess checked with me to see if I had been served yet (I hadn't) and got someone over. Because of her and the food I'd rate it an A+.

We found a spot at the bar where we decided to have our dinner. Austin and Kaitlin were our servers and they were awesome. They both gave us a warm greeting and a smile. The drinks they made us were excellent. The food was great too and made to our requests.

My first time at The Loop and it was very good. Made a reservation for 2 online and we were seated within a couple minutes of arriving. The waitress was prompt, friendly and attentive. We ordered drinks to start and they were served promptly. We ordered sandwiches which also were served in a very reasonable time. The food was great - good portion size and very flavorful. My only wish would have been a better selection of craft beer that included more "light" varieties like Leinie's Summer Shandy. Overall a very good experience and we would recommend The Loop and return for future visits.

Delicious food, attentive polite service. Highly recommend the loopy brownie sundae, was absolutely delicious and very chocolaty. But should definitely split between at least 2-3 people.

I'd seen this down on Twin Cities Live so we stopped and tried it. It was a bit dark in there. It wasn't really nice enough to eat outside. The menu selection was very good and I chose the walleye. Excellent. Son had the Korean bowl and it was good and spicy. Chris had a wonderful sandwich with avocado and chicken but there best was there dessert we chose in honor of my sons birthday. It r was chocolate bites! Wonderful warm chocolate chip cookies with a fish of vanilla ice cream on the side. Terrific! The service was very good.

I didn’t realize that their brunch would be buffet only and that we couldn’t order off the menu on Morher’s Day. The buffet was very good (definitely better than the average brunch buffet!), just different than we were hoping for.

While the food was great, our lack of service was disappointing. Our server (Andrew) basically threw our waters on the table and said ‘I’ll be back’. When he came back he just took our order very abruptly and left. Other people delivered our meals, there was no check in, waters weren’t refilled and I had to ask for sweet and low for my tea twice. Our bills were once again just dumped on the table with no ‘thank you’, no ‘enjoy your day’, nothing. Our ‘tip’ reflected his lousy attitude. It did not seem to be busy.

While the food was awesome and had a fantastic variety for a group of 5-10, it was just too noisy to interact with your company.

The outdoor seating was very nice - there were four in our party. Two people had fish tacos and they were tasty but kind of different. Like a big hunk of battered fish (almost a fish stick) in a small four tortilla. The other two had salads and both advised they were ok, fresh but not that flavorful.

Restaurant had an energetic vibe going. As usual, the food was great. Pizza is top notch and the brussels sprouts are some of our favorite anywhere. Service was prompt but not rushed and Isaac was so gracious and friendly, he made the meal. Also love the $5 valet outside the front door.
