The Bryant-Lake Bowl was re-imagined in 1993, transformed from a 3.2 dive bar with a game room and a chip machine into a bustling open-bowling spot with an American Grill menu and a 90-seat cabaret theater. The line "You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here" was hummed into the microphone every night at closing time by Roger Engmark, who had worked there since the 70's and still does. It’s a historical establishment that serves locally-sourced food, all day everyday, alongside a bowling alley and cabaret theatre. Featuring craft cocktails and extensive beer and wine lists, BLB hosts bowling parties, company meetings, and off-site picnic catering during the summer.

The neighborhood bakery & cafe makes everything from scratch, including their own ice cream, sherbet and sorbet in the summer.

The menu zooms around the world's offerings of comfort food, only to land firmly on the formidable Big Cheese burger. Located in South Minneapolis, but people come from all over for a serving of cheese curds and to see Pat put the Pal in Palindrome.
