Seward Reviews

2 reviews
Seward is probably best represented by its businesses. From the high quality foods of the Seward Co-op, the excessive diversity of restaurants offering anything from sushi to traditional Ethiopian, the top-notch liquor stores where you can find exactly what you're looking for, and the smattering of bars ranging from neighborhood bar to swanky singles spot to heavy death metal shows, Seward is definitely a happening neighborhood. The green-way and the light rail run through it too.

It's quiet and safe. The location in relation to other areas of Minneapolis is perfect. Good bars and restaurants are nearby. It is also close to the river.
