This is a nice place to hang out with friends. We especially like to go on Thursdays because they have 2 for 1 martinis and half price appetizers! My favorite is the Carmel apple martini and the Reuben flatbread. Yummo! It's located in downtown Fort Dodge. It has space to host a party if needed. Thumbs up!

The setting in an older building is very well done. The breasted chicken was delicious. Polynesian salad was creative and delectable. Chocolate cake with ice cream was wonderful. Even the coffee was great. What a great find! Fort Dodge is lucky!

I moved to Fort Dodge about a year ago. Though I hadn't taken the opportunity to try Olde Boston's, my wife, who is from there, had a favorable opinion of the place but she hadn't been there in years. Finally, we decided to give it a try. Bad idea. I knew better and should have walked out when it took... More
