My business partner and I stopped in to inquire about options for both of our special dietary needs (vegan and gluten free), and the chef, August, and the day manager, Nikki, were both incredibly accommodating and understand what our dietary needs required. We were served delicious meals, and were thrilled to be treated well and for our dietary needs to... More

While in Fargo for an August weekend, my daughter, husband, and I had Sunday brunch at Basies. The staff were friendly, the food was pretty good, and it was certainly much, much better than the free breakfast offered in our hotel. We were particularly fond of the bacon and mini doughnuts. However, it was pretty much the same as many... More

Waited 5 mins at the front for someone to seat me...so sat myself in the bar. 5 minutes later the bartender came over. When the food came, it was sub-par. Expected more from this place. Beef was chewy and low grade. Very disappointed. Service is not important to this place.

Best cakes I have ever had, a light delicious vanilla flavor, They do a good job with eggs too. I stay here despite many hotels in the area that offer "free" breakfast because I never like hanging with bleary eyed guests who stumble around at the breakfast bar. Much better to be waited on by friendly staff and get really... More

I eat all my meals at Basies when staying at the Ramada. The food is some of the best I have ever had. They have a great breakfast and lunch menu. The steaks on their dinner menu are excellent and they have large portions. Well worth the money.

The menu is varied, the chef is capable for very appetizer appearances for his presentations & the food is good. The variety is appreciated & Mont is willing to make suggestions based on your tastes.

I had a group of 14 here for the Mother's Day buffet. I had a handful of cash to pay for everyone and that would have been enough until they added the tip onto the bill. First, it was stupidly embarrassing. Now I was forced to use a debit card. Who in the hell automatically adds the gratuity to a... More

Excellent service and location. Plus comfortable accommodations. The full sized kitchen makes eating in so much easier and having cold drinks on hand is so great too. It all makes for a great family experience with good restaurants close by as well.

Nice selection of pastries, salads, and breakfast foods. Carving station with roast beef. Food quality was good and proper temperatures. I would dine there again and recommend the restaurant to others.

The breakfast buffet offers great food and wonderful selections. Because the line is only on one side you wait quite a long time then when we got to the food everything was out, no bacon, no cheesy potatoes, no eggs, which meant we had to wait in line again.
