Diner atmosphere, but upscale menu, full bar
From their website:
A million dollars does not make a great restaurant. Neither does a flashy sign or fancy food or even a clever theme or trend. A good restaurant is one that is welcoming, clean and friendly that offers great food and service at a fair price.
The Independent puts this all together in a fun, casual, urban environment. We aim to be a place where city-lovers and city-dwellers alike can gather for happy hour, dine well without the pretense of yesterday's better dining and laugh and mingle into the night.
With a focus on high quality, ever changing menus, extensive wine and cocktail options and an atmosphere that caters to the casually sophisticated, eclectic tastes that define what it is to be uptown, The Independent aims to be the first place that rolls off your tongue when asked, "Where do you want to go out tonight?"
The best part: We are locally owned and operated by people who live and hang out in Minneapolis and love what this city has to offer! You won't find any boring menus or cheesy "Can I super size your fries?" corporate attitude here! No corporation can manufacture the fun and sense of warmth that comes naturally to us at The Independent. Stop by soon and let us introduce ourselves to you!
