They have the best burgers in town by far! My favorite is the Thai peanut burger, it's excellent! They also have several salad and sandwich options.

Downtown Bemidji is dead on Sunday night, so we didn't have many choices. The food was excellent. The service was friendly and helpful. We had a shrimp salad and a Cobb, and they were both good. Good beer and wine. Trip advisor never lets us...More
