Pub 500 is one of my very favorite restaurants/bars in the Mankato area. My husband and I usually find ourselves at the Pub at least once a week. Sometimes for cocktails, but most often for dinner or lunch. Every now and then we're around at closing time or in early for a nice Sunday brunch with the in-laws and the kids. This is a great "neighborhood" establishment right in the heart of Mankato's City Center. Management and staff are very nice, the menu is great and has some vegetarian items, and the beer selection is outstanding. Check out their World Beer Cruise - it features beers from all around the world.

Lots of cherry stained wood. Two fireplaces one in a lounge area inside and the other on the patio outside. The service was friendly and the food was great (fish and chips and the pulled turkey sandwich)! Pretty reasonable on the pricing as well. A very large selection of beers doesn't hurt either. A gem for the city of Mankato.
Before we left, we were already talking about coming back!

Pub 500 is not your typical dark smokey bar. We are in our late 30s and noticed that people of all ages really fit in and were having a good time. The bar tender was very friendly and personable, as well as timely. We just ate supper at the bar, and it was wonderful!! We are absolutely coming back in the near future!!
