HH into Dinner recs North of Mpls to Maple Grove

Meeting with two HS friends for Happy Hour and Dinner- this is pretty equal distance for all- but no one is familiar with the area. Looking for ideas. Yes- this is vague- but so are our plans- so any and all recommendations replies will be entertained.

  1. Travail and/or Victory 44. Both are north of downtown Mpls, slightly west of I-94. I've been to both and love them both. Wine and beer, no cocktails. Awesome food.

      And both easily accessible from 100.

    2. Try Nectar Wine Bar & Bistro by Chef Kevin in Maple Grove.

      1. My friends and I met up at Claddagh Irish Pub in Maple Grove. The food and drinks were great. The bar is decorated really well too Irish pub style.

          And just across the street from that is 3-square, which is a good casual joint.

        2. Pittsburgh Blue has a nice patio, HH and variety of setups (patio, bar, reg. seating). Can be pricey, but not bad.
