                Visited a second time with an out of town friend. Great food, beer. Comfortable atmosphere. Friendly waitstaff. There was a problem when I bought out the pull tab box and went w/o winning even though there should have been some winning tickets left. The manager called the pull tab person who said, sorry, you are out of luck. The manager of McCoys gave me a gift card at a price point which went above their responsibility. Really classy. Can't say enough about that gesture. Although, that is probably why they are still in business and the shi shi place down the street just closed after its 3rd round of ownership. I shall return often. Cheers.??

                I love a classic burger! I love it cooked medium rare, with a sharp cheddar. I used to live in Chicago and the best char grilled burger in the "Windy City" is The Wiener Circle. They use a cheese that is both sharp and tasty! It's no secret, It's Merkts Cheddar from Little Chute, Wisconsin. The BEST delicious spreadable cheese in the world!

                I've been going to McCoy's Public house since it opened. I order the "Real McCoy" 99% of the time and in all the years I've ordered it, only 1 time it was over cooked! I have had slow service a few times. I've even had some of the burgers undercooked, and that's fine with me.

                So if you want a Great burger and you love Chicago's Wiener Circle cheddar burger, then you've got to try the Merkts cheddar burger @ McCoy's Public House. If you don't like it with some red or pink, order it Mid well or well. Try the "Real McCoy" give em a chance. Comfort food done great!

                I have dined at McCoys on several occassions and have never had a bad experience! The staff is friendly, atmosphere is fun, and meals are well-priced. Despite being crowded, I have never had to wait more than 15 minutes for a table (even on a weekend night) and parking isn't too difficult around that area given the ramps. I would highly recommend this restaurant - no one I have taken here has been unsatisfied.

                This is an EXTREMELY UNDER RATED RESTAURANT!!

                It is a ?from scratch kitchen? and the food is cheap for the size of portions and taste. One of thee best Burgers in the Cities! They have a ton of beers on tap AND they brew their own!!!!!

                The Happy Hour is KILLER with cheap 24 oz. taps, house wines and Cosomos! And the vibe is up beat yet relaxed with a modern, dark wood pub atmosphere. Just go there! (I?ll probably already be there.)

                I was very impressed with the Mac & Cheese and am not easily impressed being that I come from a culinary background. The food arrived about five minutes after I ordered it, and they were extremely busy on a Friday evening around 7pm. The Raspberry beer was also very good, something different. The service was fast if you could flag down your server, but that did prove to be a bit of an issue, possibly because they were so busy. The atmosphere is comfortable and lively. I would reccomend it as a great hang out to have a few drinks. I will definately be going back.

                Great upscale versions of your favorite comfort foods. They have a decent beer selection and a comfortable but trendy atmosphere. Try the artichoke dip, plus great deals on pizza for happy hour.

                Service was terrible--waitress was rude--did not check on us after dumping off the food--food was not good--waitress brought the wrong entree for one of us & by the time she returned to find that out, the rest of the family was done eating. We spoke to the manager who apologized but did not offer to comp the meal.

                Stay away!

                This is a cozy place -- the booths are great for conversation. We've had excellent pizza and salads there, and the homemade "public house rolls" are total comfort food (served hot in a little cast iron pan, with honey stout butter). Lately we go for the prime rib special on Wednesday nights -- a big slab of juicy and nicely seasoned rib roast, with potato and veg. We've had issues with doneness a couple of times there (under or over), but they've always been very cheerful about taking it back and getting it right. Service has been friendly and attentive when we go. This has become our new favorite hangout.

                Two weeks ago an employee from our San Francisco office was in town - I work in DT Mpls and another friend works in the south metro so the 3 of us decided to meet at McCoy's. It wasn't busy when we arrived yet we had to flag down one of the many servers who were walking around chatting with each other. We then ordered 3 appetizers for the 3 of us - thinking that should be more than enough food. The appetizers are not inexpensive - but they were definately chintzy. I felt as if I shouldn't eat any just so the others would have something to eat! Service continued to be slooooooow - to non-existent.

                Also avoid the beer and Bloody Mary 'special' on Sunday. The flyer on the tables state that 16 oz. taps are $2.00 all day and Bloody Mary's are $2.00 from 11 - 2. When we got our bill we were charged $8.00 for 4 drinks plus $10.00 for 4 glasses (they 'gave' us 4 glasses which the server said 'came with our drinks'). WHAT?!?!?!? She told us that was how the $2.00 'special' works....you really pay $4.50 for the tap beer and bloody's even though it says they are $2.00. RIP-OFF.

                My friend and I each ordered the cheeseburger. We were SHOCKED when they arrived with an ice cream scoop-sized disgusting looking blob of 'cheese' on top. Did some chef think that was a zippy new idea? People, cheese balls are for passe hors d' oeuvres trays..not burgers. Ick. We rolled the grainy ball of waxy looking cheese to the side. Both burger had been ordered 'medium.' Mine was fine. My friend's was TOTALLY RAW inside with red blood all over the plate. Double ick. Fries were good. Am not a picky eater at all, but after the cheese ball topping..and raw meat, I lost my appetite.

                Upon reading the most recent user review I approached cautiously. Obviously everyone is looking for something different. I thoroughly enjoyed both the food and service. A nice casual atmoshpere with pleasant helpful servcie. The burgers were outstanding. The Asian Surf and Turf was exactly what we were looking for. A nice variety of Appetizers and Home-Brewed beers, a little of something for everyone. We started with Happy Hour on a Thursday and moved into the dining room - the place was packed! They are definately doing something right and they sure did with us.
                Can't wait to return!!!

                I found McCoy's to be much below average and very noisy. We were seated at a dirty table that had not been wiped down.

                The food ordered was generally greasy and nothing to write home about. My drink was made wrong twice and never corrected.

                Worst all was the service - our Waitress was rude. When I mentioned the first drink wasnt right she was short saying: They are all different. As if I dont know what my favorite drink tastes like. She rudely brought back a replacement equally as bad, AND never checked how the second drink was or asked when she DROPPED (literally) the bill on the table and the drink sat there full.

                I hope this was an off night - because all they have right now is a trendy location with bad service and mediocre food - that can only get you by so long...

                McCoy's is a great neighborhood place for groups of friends and family.

                There are big comfortable booths and tables plus an outdoor patio. The menu has a variety to choose from including lobster spring rolls, cheeseburgers, filet minion (my favorite in town), thin crust pizzas, mushroom/spinach lasagna and a grown-up version of macaroni & cheese to name a few choices. Picky eaters will be happy because everything is made to order and the chefs are accommodating. The beer and wine list is extensive including their micro brews made in KC and a reserve wine list. The crowd is a mix of all ages but as the night progresses it's usually people in their 20-30's. Lunch is also served from a limited menu that includes big salads and sandwiches. I would recommend making a reservation for groups larger than 8 or call ahead to sit outdoors (patio fills up fast).

                After countless months of awful food and service at many twin cities favorites someone recommended this eatery.... I was weary... but its was amazing! The service was out of this world. The waitstaff seemed to have the rhythym of the wonderful jazz music in the background. Which leads me to the ambiance. It was very cozy and modern at the same time, with hints of the past and historical icons scattered throughout. The food was filling and very flavorful. The creme brulee trio is a must! The bar scene was buzzing with the after work swanky crowd. A new Twin Cities favorite!

Service was slow. The house brews were a bright spot. When looking for an everyday meal I'll drive another mile or so down Excelsior and stop at Dixie's. The bar scene, food and view are all better.

                What's all the buzz about? This place is really overrated. Frankly, the food was of a Perkins quality. Don't get me wrong--I like Perkins, I was just expecting more from McCoy's. We had to be re-seated because they seated us in the family section. This place is great for kids--horrible for a romatic dining experience. Additionally, our server seemed indifferent to everything we said. Oh well, I tried it. I won't be going back.

                This new restaurant in St. Louis Park is my new favorite hang-out. It's just close enough to Uptown to be convenient. Great food, extensive menu, wonderful specials and great happy hour drinks. The staff seem well-educated and the decor is warm and seductive. A great place to call home.

                Pros: seafood specials, fun atmosphere, great for parties

                This saying means more than meets the eye (for real)!
                Great place.... good location... great food.... nice selection of libations... excellent service....

                They really care about your experience. Unlike SOME reveiws, this one has nothing but great things to say. Great stopping point for happy hour or dinner. I hear the brunch is great too.

                One of the best Happy Hours in town. Close enough to downtown with the prices of a way out suburban city. Stay for dinner and feast on an incredibly diverse menu; something for everyone. Fantrastic wine list with nearly every bottle a couple dollars cheaper to comparable places like Redstone or Wlidfire. One of my new favorite places to enjoy a cocktail or two, or three, or four.
