City Pages' Description

When local restaurateur Matty O'Reilly, owner of the 318 and Aster Cafés, took over Preston's Urban Pub (formerly the decades-old Sergeant Preston's) on Seven Corners and replaced it with a concept called Republic, the news rankled some of the college bar's loyal clientele. But O'Reilly didn't do much to change Preston's character-rich space, beyond remove the flat-screen televisions, neon beer signs, and arcade games that detracted from the building's exposed brick walls, lofted tin ceilings, and ornate stained-glass windows. (Fear not, the iconic taxidermied deer, bison, and moose heads remain, as does the lovely patio.) Even without Preston's perilous fishbowls of booze, the place has maintained its student-hangout cred. O'Reilly made some nice upgrade: the smart, 32 tap beers and plates of scratch-cooked, pub-style fare are all priced for modest budgets--hardly anything costs more than $10. Favorites include the Thousand Hills beef and Wild Acres turkey burgers, the fish and chips, and the sausage and potatoes. For dessert, the $2 sweets pack plenty of satisfaction into three bites. You can sample the whole array of choices, then order seconds--or thirds--of your favorites.

    The staff is great! Especially Zach!!

  • Ethan S. on 05/17/10

    Four floors, great location just off of the University of Minnesota campus, surrounded by good resturants and tons of bars.

  • Jordan H. on 03/06/13

    Take water and other provisions; you may get lost in the featureless, labyrinthine halls. The remains of travelers less-prepared stand as testament to the prudence of this advice.
