A few years back we had a bad experience but decided to give it another chance... The place is very nice and well this time we had good service and our meals were hot, correct, and great! We will be back on our next visit to Minot!

Really neat setting, pretty cool deer mounts. The chili was barely warm but they warmed it up. Overall I like it for a good healthy lunch

Really liked this place. Server was a bit green on the night we went but the food was very good. Three of us shared the thinly-sliced onion rings and the fried cheese curds. Both came with tasty dips. We each had a filet, a NY strip and a sirloin. All came with mashed potatoes and corn. Steaks were cooked to... More

We got the prime rib special for two. I'm someone that likes my meat weel done which is not an easy thing to do with prime rib. The cook that night hit it on the nail! Mine was done to perfection and was still juicy to boot.

We ordered the chicken strips with fries and could not believe how much you got for the price as well as how good they were. We will definitely be back.
