i HAVE BEEN GOING TO SERUMS SINCE HIGH SCHOOL. I GO THERE FOR THE FOOD AND TO SEE OLD FRIENDS BUT WHAT I HAVE LEARNED OVER THE YEARS IS THAT THE GREAT TASTING FOOD DOESNT MAKE UP THE FOR THE CRAPPY SERVICE. THE WAITRESSES THERE ARE ALWAYS CRABBY AND THE BAR TENDERS COULDNT MAKE A DRINK IF THEY TRIED. THE FOOD HAS RECENTLY GONE DOWN HILL SINCE JASON THE COOK LEFT. ALSO GARY IS THE WORST OWNER OF ANY RESTAURANT IN THE ANOKA AREA.

Cons: takes a long time to get a drink

I really love Serum's chicken wings. We always order hot wings with extra hot sauce on the side and an order of Garlic wings; If you want mouth watering flavor this is where it is. I have enjoyed the pizza and sandwiches here as well but mainly go for the wings, none better in the area. Usually the food is exceptional on rare occasion the wings are dry. Do not go to this establishment if you are looking for a classy or romantic get~a~way type of restaurant ( this is more of a clicky home boy biker bar.) And they serve up one heckuva good drink!

Pros: No Smoking any more!!! Reasonable prices!!!

We literally had to leave because the upstairs bathroom was leaking through the ceiling tiles onto our table....the staff said it was condensation from pipes, but regulars confirmed Gary Serum has Roto-Rooter out quite often for the sewer problem....I also heard a customer complain to his partner Doc about the issue, and he said "It's just sewer water"....WTF.....I guess they know about the problem, but they are too cheap to fix it.....Gary would rather sit at his bar and get drunk I guess. Ask anybody that was there Friday night 4-24-09....that is why you could not get seated.

I have been to many wing places in the Greater Twin Cities but this is the best. They have amazing flavors and lots of them. Out of the 10 times I have been their the wing were only slightly over cooked once. It is worth the trip to anoka, especially if you thing Sweeny's or Rynon's has good wing. The BBQ is better than any other. They combine it with Chernobyl to make my favorite mix. I have never had bad services but I don't think that is the strong point here. The patio is great in the summer. The sampler is great but the wings could be larger. They are BW3 sized. You can't beat the flavor.

Pros: Wing, towny place, patio, wings

Cons: small wings, a bit crazy

I usually am not a passionate enough person even if the food is bad to actually write a review at all. This is an exception because I found the TRI-suck of minnesota. Not only was our food lacking terribly, but we got it late and the server seemed to have been released after greeting us and did not inform the other servers that we existed

THEN the owner Mr. Serum was nothing but arrogant and annoyed when approaching our table for, what we thought, was suppose to be an apology. He apparently has a sick case of HUGE FISH LITTLE POND syndrome. In his case, this pond was his scummy watering hole known as Serums.

NEVER AGAIN.

Don't waste your time!
If you like fruit flies buzzing around your food and drink, wait staff and bartenders that treat you like yesterdays garbage with their bad attitudes, laziness and inability to relate to you as a customer. If you like shady characters making shady deals right next to you at the bar. And if you like a mixture of regulars that treat new patrons like your an alien from another planet, then Serums is the place for you. And by the way, I wouldn't walk across the street for their wings or any of their food for that matter after you see the filthy kitchen and sweaty cooks that produce that garbage!!!

I do like Serums wings and most items on their menu. However, if they host the Halloween wine tasting every year in their parking lot, they should have a better selection of wine.

Looking for a great saloon with a local vibe?? SERUMS is the answer. Very friendly staff and nobody in America can beat their wings! Thanks Gary. Yoiu should open up another one on the other side of the bridge!

"I have to say that the wings at Serums Good Time Emporium are the best wings around! I have tried to find better ones I like elsewhere and can't. There are so many different flavors to choose from, I can;t pick just one. I introduced my Sister to her Husbund there a few years back and we still make it there( the 4 of us) as much as possible for our "wings and beer night out". They are an hour away, so sometimes I have to order some without them. I do wish they had better seating and served bottle beer upstairs, but we still go. Tonight we're ordering a big amount for new years and sit home and pig out!

Oh wow - this place has AWESOME chicken wings. The portions are HUGE and there are many unique flavors to choose from. I can't rememberr the exact name, but there is a flavor involving ginger, and it's my favorite. My husband loves the ones called something like Gold Rush - Gold something, anyway - they're very good as well. For a bar, it's actually pretty clean - I was impressed. It has your standard rickety tables, sports on tv in every corner, and smoke that you'll find in any bar, but the wings are worth it. Come on in and pig out!

Right off Main Street in downtown Anoka, Serum's is convenient, but it certainly wont win any awards for ambiance. However, thats not why youre going there. They have great Ribs and Wings! The sauces are original and delicious. Both times I had ribs there, they were fall-off-the-bone good. The portions arent small either. They also have fairly reasonable drink prices and happy hour specials.

They have a couple handfulls of wing flavors for any wing nut. Yum. They are all great, come in combonation platters, and did I say how tasty they are? It's worth the drive. We have friends who drive from Plymouth and Maple Grove and

I recommend this restaurant for those looking for a new place to get chicken wings. Serum's offers many different flavors, compared to Buffalo Wild Wings, and Hooters. For example, they have ranch flavored and garlic wings and of course
