735 White Bear Ave N
Saint Paul, MN 55106
Known for its incredible happy hour deals, this neighborhood bar is a Saint Paul institution that is whole-heartedly invested in its community. The interior decor is basically one step up from a dive, with dark lighting and wooden tables, but the food is fresh and delicious and the service is upbeat and friendly—miles away from the snark usually associated with dive bartenders. Using locally-sourced ingredients and bread from nearby bakeries, the signature cheese curd burger is a Minnesota original and comes topped with a heap of the squeaky cheese bites. It's big and it's loud, but that means you'll definitely be able to find a seat and you may even make a new friend.
