The 201 Tavern is fairly new to Anoka, but it made its way to the top of my list very quickly. This restaurant is one of my family’s favorite places to eat and we hang out at the 201 at least 2 times a month. With being a perfect biking distance from our home, and a safe place outside the restaurant to lock our bikes, this is the perfect family outing. With many events a week to partake in at the 201 tavern, such as the weekly meat raffle, there is never a dull moment.
Authentic dark wood floors cover the ground, creating a rustic charm. High-top tables up front and aligning the sides, perfect for a group of friends to hang out at and talk about their past week. Low tables in the back, perfect for families who need a high chair for their little ones. A set up made to keep you coming back time and time again. The newly remodeled bar is made for comfort and fun drinks where you can enjoy one of their 16 ice cold craft, import or domestic beers on tap maybe try one of their delicious 201 specialty cocktails, or sip a glass of wine.
The playlist of music keeps the atmosphere up-beat and fun, putting you right into weekend mode. The glowing lights of different TV’s all around you, playing different sport team games.
Where Is The 201 Tavern?
The 201 Tavern is located right on Jefferson street, one block north of Main street in downtown Anoka. Sitting in between Casa Rio and Serums, there is plenty of hungry traffic for the 201. Conveniently, there is a parking ramp directly behind the restaurant. There are also parking lots to left, on the rum river and to the right next to Serums.
Time To Get Hungry…
Now let’s talk about the food. Oh the food… where do I even begin? I am about to get really hungry writing this. Every time I go, I try something new and love it. Every time. For starters, the the boneless wings, fried pickles, and bacon cheddar tots are my top picks. For my main meal, I will either go for the tavern burger, bacon lobster mac, or the chicken ranch wrap. Every single meal I have ever had from the 201 Tavern has never disappointed me. They really go above and beyond when it comes to their customer service and meal preparation.
Hungry for more? Every Saturday from 3-4:00pm the 201 Tavern has a meat raffle! All meat is provided by Anoka Meat and Sausage. Yum!!! Grab some friends, or family and head over for a fun evening with the 201 Tavern.
