We had breakfast here twice and dinner once. Food was absolutely fantastic. More like home cooking rather then traditional Restaurant food. Highly recommend.

We dined on the German buffet following a meeting at Reuben's, and the impressive thing was the tubs of Knoephle they kept bringing. It seemed like there must have been a bushel of them, but as the working guys streamed in, they ran out! And had to substitute French fries.

This restaurant had really good breakfast. My favorite was the McReuben's sandwich. The pancakes were huge couldn't even eat one whole one. The waitress was very friendly.

Let's me first state that the town of Napoleon ND has an population of around 750 people. There are few choices for lunch. The restaurant is informal. Example, you get you own drinks. My burger was good but my wife's ruban sandwich was not. The corn-beef, on her sandwich, looked like fried spam. The one visible employee did a great... More

Back room was large enough for our meeting - the coffee was on and the buffet featured many German Russian dishes... Nice people.

I've had breakfast and lunch here on two occasions a year apart. Good hearty food, well served. They also have meeting space for small groups which I used at no extra cost when food was part of the meeting. Very conveniently situated.

I recently had lunch at Reuben’s while attending a meeting in Napoleon. Fortunately for me, it was Friday since Friday lunch special features a German buffet. While the variety of German food was not extensive, it did include knoephla and sauerkraut. Their soup of the day was knoephla soup. I must say their knoephla soup was wonderful! It was just...

We stopped in for breakfast and were well served. The breakfast menu is not extensive, but Reuben's has a good selection of omelet options and a build-your-own-plate list of other items. We had the breakfast-sausage burgers. This is an exceedingly pleasant small-town cafe, well appointed, and a true community institution. It was built through the generous bequest of Reuben and...
