Where to Eat and Drink Near U.S. Bank Stadium
From sports bars to fine dining, the best stops near the stadium
Eastside Eat + Drink
Easy to access thanks to their valet service, this upscale spot is the perfect stop for oysters and garlic French fries before the game.
A bit upscale, but not so fancy that jeans aren’t welcome. Grab some low-country mussels and clams or an order of the East Town wings.
Crooked Pint Ale House
A solid spot for a jucy lucy before the game. Plus, there are plenty of TVs to catch the pre-and post game action.

Erik The Red Bar
Erik the Red is just a couple of steps away from the stadium and ground zero for fun times pre-game. There’s a great beer selection and the menu is stacked with barbecue, smokey wings and burgers.
Zen Box Izakaya
One of the few true Izakaya’s in Minneapolis, this restaurant is famous for their ramen, but the long list of bar snacks and beer selection are also quite appealing.
Day Block Brewing Company
Stop by this local brewery for a flight and some pizza just two blocks away from the stadium.
It’s a bit of a hike, but the beer selection at this West Bank bar is worth it. So, too, are the killer food selections like the delightfully delicious fried chicken sandwich.
