  • A little piece of small town South Dakota in Uptown Minneapolis. It's like they took the bar patrons, the building and drink prices back from where I grew up and plopped it in Uptown. It's awesome!
  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Order a Jack and (never more than a splash of) Coke to stoke your courage for the best karaoke the Cities have to offer.
  • Dwayne is the best bartender!!! Also, have your wedding reception in the hall! Super affordable and you pretty much get free reign.
  • Just the tip!
  • Don't stop believing!!!
  • Get your drinks from Trish! She's the best.
  • Front Door Dan is awesome.. Steve & Greg are my absolute favorite bartenders... Terribly awesome karaoke-with no judgements-and cheap pitchers during happy hour!
  • Fernando is a riot! Love his Wednesday trivia night.
  • I ordered the cheese bites here as a last resort seeing that I HAD to order fried foods according to kitchen. The cheese bites were literally the WORST thing I have ever ordered from any restaurant.
  • So many bros now
  • Pizza, Live Music, Happy Hour, Karaoke, Brunch
  • Check out James Ballentine VFW as it was featured on Best Bars in America for Local VFW open to the public serving cheap beer to help support the troops
  • Beer, bingo, pull tabs.
  • Karaoke and strong inexpensive drinks.
  • The drinks and the old school crowd.
  • The bathroom smells like sweettarts.
  • If you don't love this place there's something wrong with you!
  • Frat boys. Bad karaoke. Cheap drinks.
  • If you want to do karaoke get there early and put your name in right away!!! Takes hours to finally get to you because it's so popular.
  • Good karaoke place.
