About the restaurant
Casual, coastal restaurant in the North Loop. Reservations taken for dining room only, patio seating is available on a first come, first serve basis. Please check in with hosts upon arrival for patio seating.

Although named for the boats used to catch lobster, Smack Shack was launched as a food truck in 2010 serving lobster rolls from a land-locked downtown Minneapolis parking lot. Owner Josh Thoma had a great recipe and a belief that appetite for fresh lobster in the Twin Cities was as strong as any coastal city.

Smack Shack is committed to serving sustainable seafood and is a current partner in the Minnesota Zoo’s Fish Smart program. Sustainable seafood is wild caught or farm raised seafood that has established practices to ensure the long term growth and thriving populations of seafood with limited harm to the environment.

About the restaurant
Located near Arbor Lakes Mall off of 94. Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

Always a great experience at this Gyu-Kaku. I find it to be a step above the other Gyu-Kaku's in other parts of the country. After a bad experience in Chicago with really bad cuts of meet I almost gave up on the chain. But this restaurant in MSP uses high quality cuts, extremely tasty, and the service is great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

About the restaurant
Buca di Beppo is where all the residents of Maple Grove, MN head when they crave their favorite Italian entrees. Located on the corner of Main Street and Elm Creek Boulevard, lots of our guests come to us after they've worked up an appetite at nearby Elm Creek Disc Golf Course or Three Rivers Park. That's because our heaping, family style helpings can handle any appetite and our guests always feel like they're part of the family.

Sat on the patio - on a beautiful afternoon. Our waitress was attentive and patient with us as she had to check in with us several times to get our order (we were gabbing too much!) Food was great - we just had appetizers during happy hour.

We went for Father's Day at 11 am right when they opened. We all arrived by 11:15 and that was fine. Our server was pleasant and prompt but didn't hover even though it wasn't very busy. We had snall orders salad, cheese bread, chicken parm and spaghetti/meatballs; there was plenty for our family of 4 with leftovers. It was so nice to go to Buca again (we hadn't been since before the Burnaville location burned down) and we were not disappointed!

Amazing place. Food and service is outstanding. It is always impressive how great the food quality is for a place that puts out so much food, be it self serve or carved table side. Everyone is so customer focused. Fantastic meal!
