Great spot for your pup!

The Howe is a great spot. They have a year round dog friend patio and separate dog menu.

Options are mainly American, but they occasionally have specials. They got rid of some vegan options which is disappointing, but still have 5-6 options. They also have vegan brunch options, which is rare in the cities.

Pros: Vegan brunch options, Dog friendly

Cons: Got rid of some vegan options

Lots of choices & a dog menu!

Had a delicious Philly cheeze steak with vegan coleslaw. Savory and wonderful with Herbivorous Butcher “meat.” Wanted to try the vegan ceviche but it was a bit cold for that. Vegan nachos and a noodle bowl also sounded great. Very nice mocktail menu,too. Enjoyed the lavender “nojito.” I don’t know what’s on the dog menu but am happy it exists. Charming place. I’ll be back.

Pros: Appealing vegan choices, Dog patio, Nice non-alcoholic drinks

Cons: Not cheap, but what is anymore?

Changed their menu. Less veg friend

They only had a bowl that had dairy in it. Pretty disappointed. The drinks are so sweet and don't really have any flavor.

Gastropub with great vegan options

The Howe has to be my favorite non-vegan restaurant in the city. It has a great menu of vegan options: Juicy Lucy, Philly Cheese Steak, Nachos, Buffalo Cauliflower, Phuket Bowl, Chocolate Cake, etc. It also has good service and pretty decent ambiance (probably too many TVs, but that's the only downside).

Pros: Delicious vegan options!

Cons: The only downside is it isn't all vegan.

Vegan Juicy Lucy 😋

The juicy Lucy was so good! Smothered in vegan 1000 island & vegan coleslaw was included as the side! The burger is made with a beyond patty. There were quite a few vegan options & also things that were marked that could be made vegan!

I also got the vegan chocolate cake (free for my birthday!! 🎉 )

Vegan bliss

I love that they have herbivorous butcher incorporated into the menu. The vegan Philly is to DIE for! Lots of other tasty vegan options on the menu. A chill place to dine, especially if you’re dining with omnivores.

Pros: Tasty vegan options

Cons: Parking

Buffalo cauliflower app was great, and not too spicy! Phoebe sandwich was delicious, probably one of the best Reubens I've had.

Not a fan of the Phoebe

A decent amount of vegan options which is nice. The vegan nachos were good but the Phoebe wasn’t really my taste. I generally like beets but it just seemed to thick with beets and didn’t pair great with the cheese.

Good options for eating with omnivores

You can sub Beyond beef or chicken in many dishes, and they also have vegan options without fake meat.

HOW about the Howe

Yes, they have vegan food, and with two patios and being ultra dog-friendly this place is amazing. Build your own burger with GOOD vegan options, vegan apps, vegan desserts, vegan drinks. They. Have. It. All. This definitely has a small-shop-neighborhood feel and the neighborhood they are located in is super cooolll 🤩

Pros: Vegan options are good, A LOT of seating, indoor and out

Cons: limited parking lot spaces, Karaoke nights. beware.

Very vegan friendly

Menu is clearly labeled, new options added frequently, and they’re happy to customize things that aren’t vegan by default. Awesome folks and great food.

Pros: Nachos, Korean BBQ sandwich, Phoebe sandwich

Loved all the vegan options!

This place had a great selection of vegan options! I’m visiting friends in Minneapolis and we’ve been ordering in from a lot of places that only have veg options, so this place was extra impressive to me as there were multiple vegan items to choose from. I got the buffalo cauliflower and the vegan ranch was amazing, as well as the Phoebe, their version of a Ruben with beets. The selection for omnivore friends was terrific as well.

Good vegan bar food

Sports bar atmosphere in a nicely remodeled space. The staff is always helpful and kind. I really appreciate the number of vegan options. I’ve had most of them, but tend to order the tofu curry bowl. It’s the one thing that has the illusion of being somewhat healthy. In reality, I doubt health is the aim of any of the food here, but it’s a bar! I also like the Phoebe, which is a satisfying beet Rueben. As their billboard says, “it’s where meat eaters and vegans unite.” They do a good job catering to both.

Pros: Many vegan options , Dog-positive patio option , Friendly staff

Cons: Televisions everywhere

Great food, good option for omnivore friends

You know it's a good place when you realize the patio garden is half kale, swiss chard, and tomatoes.
I wish I went sooner! There are a variety of vegan options on the menu, and everything we had was delicious.
The buffalo cauliflower was a hit with the non vegans, and the Korean BBQ tacos were amazing, flavors were perfect.
This is a great place to go if your friends want a non veg option, and you want to eat more than just fries or a salad.
It's really nice to see a local neighborhood bar/restaurant offer such good options.
Looking forward to going back and trying the rest of the menu!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, The vegan options are good, Good for groups of veg and nonveg people

Cons: Oreo milkshake was more coconutty than expected

Great vegan options, fun neighborhood-y vibe

The new vegan French Dip sandwich made with Herbivorous Butcher vegan meat is super, as is the staple tofu curry bowl and the vegan nachos. The cauliflower wings are great too (not as good as J Selby's but close!). You can add chickpeas or tofu to any of the salads too. Staff is knowledge and helpful about vegan options.

Pros: They keep adding more vegan options, Great outdoor seating space, Dog friendly patio

Cons: Can be really busy on weeknights

Great vegan options

Really love how vegan friendly this place is! I had the vegan French dip - not something you find very often. It was really good. My bf has the mac n cheese which was fine. The vegan Reuben is super beety but all yummy!

Great vegan options!!!

I’d date a 5 if I could. Not only were the employees and general manager totally awesome, the vegan options were delicious! They were out of the impossible burger due to a shortage in product, but has replaced it with the beyond burger - which honestly I prefer. They had a vegan cheese option and even vegan ranch. 🙌🏼 It came with fries and I added an extra side of Mac n cheese because I just had to try it. It was hands down the best vegan Mac n cheese I’ve had!!! Definitely recommend. Lastly, I got the vegan queso chorizo for an appetizer and it was amazing. All around wonderful experience and I’d definitely return when I’m back in Minneapolis! 🖤

Korean barbecue

The vegan and vegetarian options are really tasty and not the usual unimaginative additions just to accommodate non-meat eaters. The vegan coleslaw and Korean bbq were especially good!

Pros: Several vegetarian and vegan options , Really tasty, Nice selection of craft beers

The Howe + HB meats = yum

We have been here twice and they improved the vegan selection since our first time. They only have a handful of vegan items but the items they have are great and the servers understand what is vegan. My Omni boyfriend had the impossible burger and we both loved it. I had the Korean BBQ sandwich without the bun (personal preference- the bun is vegan) and it was great. The vegan side of cole slaw rocked as well. Our favorite was the vegan chocolate cheese cake. It was excellent (but cost way too much)!

The only downside is that it has the vibe of a Minnesota sports bar in the suburbs.

Pros: Herbivorous Butcher meats, Impossible burger , Good beer

Cons: So-so ambiance, Too pricey for what it is

Great experience overall

I’ve been to the Howe a couple times and the service is always excellent. I love the tacos with Korean Ribs because the sweetness of the ribs is perfect with the heat of the chipotle mayo. Monday’s are $5 off burgers when you purchase a drink, so it’s probably the cheapest way in town to get the Impossible Burger. Menu lists vegan chocolate cheesecake which is actually chocolate cake (see photo) but it’s delicious nonetheless.

Pros: Great options, Prices are reasonable , Excellent service

good burgers and beer

They have several vegan burger options and lots of beers on tap, so be prepared to stay a while on the (dog friendly!) patio. Clearly marked vegan option on menu. Korean vegan bbq burger with herbivorous butcher meat is excellent. Also have great sweet potato fries.

Good Options!

Loved it. Had some vegan options on their menu and even had vegan chocolate cheese cake. I had my first vegan impossible burger here and I was pleased!!
