Restaurants Near The U.S. Bank Stadium

With the prices for food and beverages so steep at the stadium, coupled with the fact that you are not permitted to bring any of your own, you might be tempted to look outside the stadium in the surrounding area for a bite to eat and the chance to quench your thirst.

Here’s a quick run through of some of the restaurants, cafés and bars in the surrounding area…

The Vikings Longhouse is a great place to eat. Not only does it have plenty of TVs to keep you entertained as you eat, but it also happens to be an extension of the stadium itself.
