What are some good places to eat before a Vikings game?
Grumpy’s Bar & Grill serves up great bar food (burgers, sandwiches, fries, tots), has a great beer selection and is just a short walk from the stadium. It’s a casual place to grab a beer and burger before the game. The Loop Bar & Restaurant is a short cab ride from the stadium but offers a cool atmosphere with the largest 360-degree bar in the Minneapolis area. They have flat-screens mounted everywhere so you won’t miss a moment of pregame. The Fulton beer battered chicken fingers and pulled pork quesadillas are awesome.

There are several parking lots surrounding U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis and rates vary. The new stadium also features a brand-new sky bridge that connects the stadium to nearby light rail stations.
What is a unique experience at a Minnesota Vikings game?
Normally only available on a full season basis, the Vikings Lounge opens two hours prior to kickoff and offers an all-you-can-eat buffet and open bar, Viking playbook and gameday magazine. There are flat screen TV’s all around and it has a great view of the stadium. The lounge is limited to 150 members so it’s a hard ticket to find but an unforgettable experience.
