Well this IS actually a hootenanny kinda thing. It's a buffet line of picnic food and a piece of steak the size of a VW, and that's all just kinda fine. But the VIEW. You're just dining al fresco in the badlands of ND with...More

In my opinions steaks would be much better if they just grill it instead of deep frying it. And 29 $ for pitchfork steak fondue is too much. It is not worth it.

Reading some of the reviews I thought the steak might not be that great and that it was just a place that charged a lot of the experience. But we thought the food was great! Steaks were big, juicy, and well cooked. The buffet food...More

We visited when temps were 90 degrees plus. Even shaded and with fans, it is pretty warm on the terrace. That said, steaks were great and all the "go-alongs" offered considerable variety. Hot food hot, cold food cold on the buffet tables. These folks are...More

For an outdoor meal prepared by putting a slab of steak on a pitchfork and cooking it in large barrels of hot oil, it's pretty good. Live music and all the fixins. Well worth taking it in once. Follow up with a trip to the...More

No. They do not have a full bar. Beer and wine is available for purchase at a small drinks cart located within the area. They take only cash.
