Merlins Rest Pub is your British Isles home in Minneapolis–and for a third straight year we have been voted Best Neighborhood Bar by readers of the City Pages! Thank you all for your fantastic support. We love being your pub.
Whether your taste is for a hearty meal of Bangers and Mash or our authentic Fish and Chips (voted best Fish & Chips in the Twin Cities) you can wash it down with the finest beers of this land or any other – and the most comprehensive list of Irish and Scotch Whisky in all of Minnesota.
Merlins Rest sits comfortably on the corner of E. Lake St. and 36th Ave. in Minneapolis (about one mile West along Lake from the Mississippi River). We’ve got FREE wi-fi, good food, tasty pints and one of the Cities’ best whisky stocks, which are showcased every first Thursday of the month during our single-malt tastings.
