Located in the Ramada hotel. They offered some decent food at reasonable prices. Pretty good for a hotel restaurant...I usually avoid them. They have a Sunday brunch that is good for the price - certainly i have had better but at easily twice the price! Pleasant atmosphere. Very good service. They really care and try.

It's been a long time since we had met here but we wanted to try get a good steak. The service was poor. Took forever to get a waiter, and took forever for the waiter to come back. My NY strip was ok but cool by the time we got it. There was only one other table in the restaurant... More

My husband and I enjoy Fine Dining Restaurants. Basies has exceptional costumer service and the food is exactly what you would expect in this type of establishment. My favorite appetizer is the Bruschetta Bread. We prefer ordering the Filet Mignon which is seasoned and cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant at anyone that is looking for a... More

The waiter was nice, polite and efficient. wonderful bread, the brown loaf is sweet and delectable. My wife had the chicken alfredo and I had the sirloin steak. the pasta was sauced perfectly, great... More

Nice live music each Thursday except during summer. The food is sound but with good jazz we enjoy the combination. The brunch here bis the best kept secret. Great value for brunch.

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.
