We thought we would give this place one more try as we like to patronize all of the establishments in town. We had been to Fat Daddy's in the past and had bad experiences but thought we would give it one more shot. BIG MISTAKE! Our first clue should have been when I ordered a White Russian and the waitress... More

We went here for Sunday brunch. We called the night before to verify what time they opened because everywhere had different times. We were told 10am. We got there a little after 10 and when we went up to the buffet, there were no plates. We had to wait about 5 minutes for them. Then when we finally got them... More

Good pizza and good appetizers. The bowling alley looked nice, but did not try it since it took the restaurant almost an hour to get one pizza out on a very uncrowded day. Once they realized they forgot the order there was a vague apology.

We made reservations for the bowling alley on New Year's Eve in August. When our party of 9 arrived we were astonished. The bowling alley was very large. Unfortunately after only a portion of our group was inside we witnessed a verbal disagreement, directly outside the front doors, that included some very vulgar language. The individuals were blocking the front... More

Great food. Great atmosphere! Can accommodate large groups. Only bad thing - they used to serve marshmallow fluff with sweet potato fries. Now they don't have the sweet potato fries anymore 😢

These guys have a great facility and use it well. Whenever I am attending meetings or presentations here, the wait staff come over from Fat Daddy's and do very well at providing access to what I consider a wonderful menu of food and what a great selection of beers on tap!

Early Saturday PM and place was pretty crowded but no serious waits. Has a unique hamburger menu and I tried the grilled cheese/burger which is basically 2 grilled sandwiches with a burger between the two. It was good.

I try to get at least one meal here in my annual trip to town. The fries are very tasty also. Fast service and a delicious cheeseburger.

I can't exactly say that this place is rude for the obvious reasons but the service was down right awful. I literally had to go to the bar to get another drink due to my waitress looking at me but refusing to serve me. This place is the only negative experience that I received in Alexandria, MN. Even the managers... More
