Woolley's - The Perfect Spot for a Pre- or Post-Flight Meal

With the weather we've been having lately (really, snow on April 19?!), we wanted to let you in on a little secret. Located directly off the Light Rail and just outside of the MSP AirportWoolley's is the perfect spot for a pre- or post-flight meal.

Why fight traffic at the pick-up and drop-off areas outside the terminals, when you can park for FREE in our parking lot? Then, simply grab a table and unwind over a few drinks. Those who are flying can either meet you at Woolley's after Baggage Claim or depart right from Woolley's to the airport (which is but a simple Light Rail ride away).

Plan your next pick-up or departure around Lunch, Dinner, or even Happy Hour.

Safe travels out there, everyone!
