A true neighborhood classic! EVERYTHING tastes good. Nice family run local pub. Pretty much just nice folks frequent the place. No fussy, prentious, self absorbed wanks here! A true hidden gem. Will continue to stop as much as I can, and have for the last 22 years!
Best Neighborhood Bar (Minneapolis) - 2011
Tootie's on Lowry
Sure, lots of neighborhood bars offer a game room with pool tables and shoot-'em-up video games, but how many warn patrons to keep the language clean? Tootie's does, but that's only part of the charm of this North Side institution. It starts with the food—big, thick hamburgers topped in dozens of ways; well seasoned and prepared meat loaf, the kind you wished mom would have made; appetizers that include golden-brown, deep-fried cheese curds; and desserts that feature deep-fried Oreos. Then there are the people. This is still a neighborhood bar, reflecting the down-to-earth, blue-collar roots of the surrounding streets. It's a place for grumbling about taxes or how badly the Vikings are playing while enjoying a brew from Tootie's excellent beer list. Mainly, Tootie's invites you in—for a meal, for a drink, or for a (cleanly spoken) game of pool.
I called to see if they could fax me a menu.The girl that answered the phone was very rude and stated I can't we don't have a fax.OK, that's fine, but then tell me what you can do for me.You just lost a good customer that could have been a regular.
One of my favorite places to get a pint. The buffalo chicken sandwich or the Reuben are my absolute favorites! Toot-Toot-Tooties!
They also have great wings and burgers, some of the best in the city. I am excited this place made it into the best of the city, it is a great establishment!
