I've lived in Grand Forks since '87... and this was my first time to the Broken Drum?? My wife and I had heard that they had good food, so we thought we would stop by to check out the menu and have a fermented beverage. We were both pleasantly surprised! For the most part, you have quick typical bar food... More

The Broken Drum Bar serves excellent food at a reasonable price. We have only eaten there for our noon meal, so not sure if they serve in the evenings or not. The food was great, service was fast. They have burgers and fries every day, as well as a special each day. Great place for a good meal.

Came in here for a couple of beers and noticed they had wings as a special so gave an order a try. Wings were great. Also had some popcorn while waiting and it was super salty so make sure you have plenty to drink to wash it down.

It's like a neighborhood bar with popcorn and food although they could upgrade the quality of the popcorn they use (yeah, I know, it's free so quit complaining) but they could. Service was okay not great and the food was pretty slow coming out. My chicken sandwich was overly greasy but I have to admit was tasty. Beer was cold... More
