Not for the Maple Grove crowd 8/19/2009

The thing I love most about Mort's is that there's no bouncer at the door checking everyone's walking papers. At the same time there is a bouncer in the building or on the patio and will bounce fools that cannot act their age. I have lived in Minneapolis my whole life and there is always someone i recognize enjoying a beer. Pros: Jukebox, Buck hunter safari big screen, Pitcher specials Cons: Will not consider having karaoke more

Great bar - if you know how to behave in one. 2/10/2008

This bar is fantastic. Always has been. The regulars are great and the bartenders are great. You just have to remember, when you're in their house - do as you're told. If they ask for ID, show it. No worries. This is a real neighborhood bar, not your local Applebees. If you want that atmosphere, I suggest you stay in the suburbs. Pros: cheap drinks, good jukebox more

Avoid this place -- go to Red Dragon across the street instead 2/10/2008

This place is really lousy -- the bartender the night we were there was verbally abusive to two women with our rather large group. Both women had ordered beers early on and later, when they tried ordering water, were told to show ID. One of them just asked why the ID for water, and the bartender insulted her, calling her a stupid b**ch. He said he needed ID from the other woman, too. The other came up to show her ID, and he called her a dumb b**ch and stupid c**t. Both were thrown out of the bar. A guy from our group who ordered water was not carded, and neither was anyone ordering drinks. We complained to the bar manager the next day, but he wasn't hearing it -- he was standing by the bartender, even though he knows what the bartender said. The bartender has an attitude against women. Avoid this place -- go to The Red Dragon across the street instead. Cons: poor service, staff are extremely rude more

Horrible service, rude staff, not at all welcoming: run away, FAST! 1/27/2008

I have never had worse service at a Minneapolis bar than at this place. They are unessecarily rude and disrespectful to patrons and have stated - verbally and with their actions - that they could care less whether people come back. As a business owner I would never think of calling customers profane names, but their staff seems to think it's a perfectly acceptable practice. Plus, many of their regulars are dirty drunks that make offensive comments to women (including myself) who use the bus stop outside (two, who were drunk at 5pm, once followed me downtown and wouldn't stop making sexual comments to me - blech!). Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else! Pros: Foosball Cons: Service, staff, profane insults, drunk regulars, bad smells more

Terrible customer service 1/26/2008

This is a terrible bar. It took me 20 minutes for the bartender to wait on me, and over an hour to get an appetizer, which was seasoned fries! It was not busy at all, and there was no excuse for the long waits. They cater ""exclusively"" to their regulars, so unless you are a regular there, I don't recommend it. Pros: Large Cons: Parking, Ambience, Service more

Incredibly rude bartender 1/26/2008

I?ve never been as insulted by anyone in my life as I was by a bartender named Chris at Mortimers. I was enjoying a few beers with friends and needed a glass of water, so one friend went to get a water for each of us. When asked for ID for the water she thought it was odd (we hadn?t been carded for beer), but handed over her ID while asking why it was needed for a water. Chris started calling her a stupid b*tch for asking and said he needed to see my ID also. She returned to the table (with both waters) and told us what had happened. I went up to the bar to show the bartender my ID, was not drunk, and was not rude about it in any way, but he started calling me a stupid b*tch, then a f*ck?n c*nt, and told me to get out. No problem! I?ll certainly not miss a place that treats their clients like this. more

Moronic staff and pitiful decor make this one place to miss 1/26/2008

This place is a dump, and the only thing more depressing than the decor is the clientele. That, coupled with the lobotomized bartenders and wait staff makes this place one of the worst bars in the Twin Cities. Only go there if your life is going nowhere and you want to see if it can get any worse by talking to the slovenly drunkard sitting next to you. more

Not a friendly place 1/26/2008

The rude bartender asked for ID for getting a glass of water for those done drinking. If you ask why you need an ID for water, you get thrown out while getting called every name in the book. Not a friendly place if you're not a regular. Go to one of the other fine bars nearby instead. more

great jukebox and cheap drinks 7/14/2006

i love mortimer's. i was new to the area and wanted a beverage, checked out morti's and i was an instant regular. the bartenders are great and actually remembered me, along with the other regular crowd. the jukebox is the reason why i really enjoy it. great variety. my boyfriend enjoys the pinball games and i became addicted to the bowling game. drinks are decently priced. check out happy hour and you will leave very happy! also have popcorn that will keep you drinking :) Pros: cheap drinks, lots of space, no cover charge Cons: gets busy around midnight more

In search for happy hour 2/4/2003

Good people nice bar tenders and strong drinks. What else can you say. Pros: parking, happy hour, people Cons: pull tabs more

Not to bad 12/15/2002

This place is nice and it nots really crowded but all they have is a juke box that really aint that loud unless I was to drunk to hear it. But is really nice and its not crowded like the rest of the bars in the cities. Pros: cheap, not crowded, beautiful women Cons: not enough bartenders, bad music more

Pinball and cocktails 11/24/2002

The drinks are cheap and free-flowing, and Mortimer's boasts some of the best places to spend your quarters in Mpls. Several quality pinball games along with an outstanding jukebox welcome your shiny coin. The waitstaff ranges from extremely friendly and prompt to angst-ridden and tardy, but is good for the most part. Pros: Drink Prices, Pinball Machines, Jukebox Cons: inconsistent waiters, cash only more

Always a seat 5/19/2002

Believe it or not this is a great place for groups. Visually it isn't impressive but you can almost always get a table for a group and the drink prices are fair. Typical bar scene but fun the same. They've also got a good variety of games which is nice sometimes. more
