This place was referred to us from a friend.
The last time we were in Bismarck, we had the WORST experience with not only bad food, but awful service in all the places we tried.
The Pirogue Grille was a refreshing difference. The place was packed (Friday night), and our server was excellent. I gave this place 3 stars because it truly is better than most places in Bismarck. If I were somewhere else, it would probably only rank a 2 or 2.5.
The first thing I noticed was the "bread basket". It consisted of regular wheat bread slices (like wonder bread style) cut in half, and a few what appeared to be sour dough slices? We had a good giggle just because we couldn't believe a restaurant (white table cloth) would served regular sandwich bread...cut in half in their bread basket!
The second thing that took them down a notch, was the house/dinner salad. It was essentially a plate of mixed lettuce with 4 small tomatoes cut in half and laying on the side. HOW hard is it to actually add some red onion, cucumber, avocado or ?? That would have made a huge difference for us.
We both ordered the Walleye dinner which was served with an awful red pepper sauce. Would be so much better served over risotto or something similar.
Anyway, if in a bind, this place is a good option. I think in time, once they receive more feedback...this could be a great place!
