Adrian's Tavern is family focused and kid friendly.

Adrian's Tavern - Minneapolis

The little neighborhood in the big city

Sit down in Adrian's Tavern just south of 48th and Chicago in Minneapolis and the first sense you get is that this is the center of a community. Neighbors stop in for the best hamburgers in Minneapolis, a glass of wine and friendly conversations. This is a true neighborhood grill and bar establishment with great tasting food.

Families treasure Adrian's as a family-friendly refuge. Every Thursday or Friday night you will find a father and mother with their children enjoying the evening together. Several video games and pin ball machines provide entertainment while Mom and Dad relax in a booth nearby.

There's a lot of history wrapped up in this building. It opened as a steakhouse in 1931. During the 1940's is was a 3.2% tavern. The name Adrian's Tavern came into being during 1963 and the current owners, Jim and Karen Pratt, continue the same tradition today.

Adrian's Annual Rib Feast

Jim and Karen would like to invite everyone to attend Adrian's 16th Annual Rib Feast, Featuring the best beer reps in South Minneapolis grilling  the second Saturday of August each year.

This is the public's chance to come out and experience some of the best home-grilled ribs made by local beer reps from Chisago Lakes- Delirium, Wirtz- Blue Moon and Capital- Michelob Golden Light.  Live music by the George Scott Jazz Trio are on hand to entertain this community event.

This year the dnner is just $11.00 and Pabst on Tap is just $2.00 But hurry, it only lasts from 11:00 am till the ribs run out, and they will run out. They have for the last 15-years anyway.
