I tried this again with friends that were in for the weekend. We won't go back. Although the service was fine the burgers tasted good everything was cold. Cold chili, cd fries, cold soup....Bloody Mary was filled with garlic juice I'm sure. Yuck all around.

We came for dinner with visiting family; we are local to the area. The food was excellent and well-presented, and service was also very good. We will be returning for subsequent special occasions.

They now have an outdoor eating area. The only problem with this wonderful restaurant is the location. There is no view, on a busy highway.... Not a romantic atmosphere, just very excellent food.

This is a new restaurant in Bemidji, built by one of the major grocery stores in Bemidji. They have really great sandwiches, e.g. best club sandwich ever, best Cuban sandwich ever. Very nice menu with some different fare for Bemidji. Friendly and courteous wait staff....More
