#1 The Happy Gnome

Yelp Rating: 4 stars

Why people love it:

I took a chance on this place on a business trip. I went mainly for the craft beer selection which was enormous. There is a casual outdoor patio in the back. Plenty of room at the bar to eat. Food was great as well. I ordered the Game Burger which was a blend of bison, elk, bacon and horseradish with grilled blue cheese onions on top.  It was cooked to a perfect medium rare. Name another place on the planet that serves this concoction. Excellent. Fries were good and I dipped them in the lingonberry aioli
Can't wait to get back here to try their duck burger and sample more local beer
