I love the Nook! Good food and beer. When I eat at other burger joints I compare them to the Nook.
Good, not great – Not nearly as good as expected...the cheese in the Juicy Nookie was a Velveeta/American type which was disappointing (cheddar would have been better!). The french fries were good.
This Place SUCKS!!!! – The most over rated place in town. Avoid this place like The Plague. Over priced nasty tasting food. Bad service. Two thumbs down. I have to make a star to post this review and it isn't even worth that .
Good casual chow – For a restaurant of this catagory and price, it is great. I had the juicy and it actually was, with lots of cheese. The fies (seasoned) are really good. Pricing is wonderful. Expect a wait for a table, but that is a good sign.
Food is awesome. Service isn't great. – The burgers here are fabulous. The service needs some work. They are always busy but it seems they only pay attention to people who are drinking. I always have to ask to get my soda refilled. On this occasion I ordered an appetizer and never received it. We really miss it as well they need to hurry and rebuild.
Don't waste your time – I've been here a number of times within the past year and the experience has been inconsistent, and mostly on the bad side. There's usually a really long wait to get seated, which I wouldn't mind, except I would expect something worth waiting for then. The burgers are pretty good, but if you ask for it done medium don't expect anything less than well done. On a recent visit we waited a 1/2 hour for the food and the fries were cold and soggy. The service is also very slow. On my last visit we had to catch the bus boy to ask him to get our waiter so we could pay.
I'm not going back. Go to Blue Door Pub instead.
For once a horrible burger – Every time I have been to the Nook, I have truly enjoyed the burgers that I have had. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. I have never had such a juicy delicious burger in my life.
the last time i went, on a Monday, 6/21/09, was the worst burger I have ever had. Not only was my burger dry and without cheese,(I had the new philly cheese burger) but my wife had her usual shwishmushroom burger and it was burnt and dry also. both burger buns were burnt black and were dry and had a mouth drying effect. I had a couple beers, but that sure didnt help.
I love the Nook and will never discourage people from going and enjoying the awesome burgers, but beware of the mid afternoon cook. we went at 2:30 in the afternoon and, well, cr@p. I love you Nook, but damn that last time I was there, it was horrible.
We LOVE it. – WE LOVE IT! Nookie Burger, buffalo chicken burger, awesome beers, great environment. Sigh... love it.
Best burgers in Minnesota – Hands down these are the best burgers in Minnesota. Loved the Paul Molitor. Plan on waiting for a table though. I have yet to visit the Nook and there is no wait. If you have a little patience, you will be rewarded with great burgers and fries. For a hearty appetite, order the Nookie Supreme!
Fantastic burger and french fry! – I love the juicy nookie with fried onions and fresh cut fries. LOVE! I also love the pizza here. I don't love the cramped room nor the atmosphere. Plus, it can take awhile to receive your food. FOR SURE the best burger in town.
