PGA MSP Lounge is a Priority Pass lounge/restaurant. It’s located at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) across from the Amex Escape Lounge.
PGA MSP Lounge differs from what you are used to because it offers credits towards food and beverage to spend at the on-site restaurant, or you can use the credits for the golf experience. You will appreciate the PGA MSP Lounge if you like golfing.
The PGA MSP Lounge is between the D and E Gates, Terminal 1, across from the Amex Escape Lounge. You take the elevator or stairs to enter the Lounge.

PGA Lounge is a Priority Pass Lounge; therefore, guests with a valid Priority Pass Membership can enter the Lounge by checking in at the front desk, where the golf clothing store cashier is. You simply show your Priority Pass Membership card, and the staff will give you all the information about the voucher credit (more below), amenities and Wi-Fi, etc., within the Lounge.
PGA MSP Lounge is a lounge/restaurant. So you’ll find lounging seats and tall dining tables and chairs within the Lounge.
PGA MSP is split into two sections. One section is the main restaurant, and the other is the Lounge, serving food and drinks. Both sections serve the same food and drinks, and you can go between the two freely. I would recommend the Lounge for a quieter environment, and the area has huge windows to sit and face the MSP airport’s runway. The golf experience is also inside the lounge area.

The Main Restaurant Side
Alcoholic drinks, such as mimosa, etc., are not complimentary, but coffee, tea, and soda are included, so you don have to pay for those. In other words, you do not need to use the $15 credit for non-alcoholic beverages. They are complimentary.
There’s a full-service bar inside the Lounge:

In addition to all the amenities offered at the PGA MSP Lounge, there’s a clothing store where you check in to enter the lounge. The store sells mainly golfing-related clothing with sales and discounts.

The lounge section has a unisex bathroom, and it’s private, so one person at a time. The other side with the main restaurant also has bathrooms that are not private.
Inside the Lounge bathroom
Wi-Fi is free, and a password is required. The paper says PGA Conference, but it kept saying incorrect password for me, so I connected to the PGA Lounge instead.
The PGA MSP Lounge Priority Pass is a lounge/restaurant that offers food and beverage orders and a golf experience. You can access the main restaurant and Lounge as a Priority Pass member. The Lounge is nice, with ample seats offering views of the airport runway and terminal. Each person receives a 15 credit voucher that can be used towards food and alcoholic beverages because non-alcoholic drinks are free. Lounge guests can also use the credit for the golf experience.
