Food & Drink
On your way into or out of St. Paul, fill up with a beer and some snacks (or a meal!) at Surly Brewing's Beer Hall and Beer Garden. Located along the Green Line, their 20+ local tap lines feature some of the area's best brews, and nosh from the Surly food truck will balance out the pre-game pints.
Grab a gyro and feast on a mezza platter at The Naughty Greek, about a 10 minute walk from Allianz Field. Their everything-from-scratch menu and modern Mediterranean vibes offer something for everyone, with loads of options for vegan, gluten-free, and meat-loving diners.
In this culinary and retail marketplace you'll find a combination of chef-driven restaurants, craft beer, and a uniquely curated market brimming with an eclectic mix of regional goods. The perfect spot to fill up on more than just food. (Local tip: stop by in the summer for live music and throwback film screenings, from Greece to the Goonies!)
Enjoy some of the Twin Cities' best biscuits—loaded with fried chicken and bacon, salted honey butter and mixed berry jam, vegetarian buttermilk gravy, or all the classic breakfast fixin's—and be sure to grab a slice of their legendary pie for dessert.
"Where iconic nostalgia and contemporary energy set the tone." The St. Paul Grill features an award-winning classic grill and bar, with a beautiful view of Rice Park that you don't want to miss!

Axe throwing, competitive log sawing, hatchet nail driving into a stump. That's it, that's the charm. Feeling a pang of guilt for smashing that log with a hatchet? Have no fear. For every group that visits FlannelJax’s, $1 is donated to One Tree Planted.
